Question about Frigidaire Dryers

2 Answers

Affinity dryer AEQ7000EG0. My clothes were very hot when cycle was done. The next load I put in, I lowered the temp and started the cycle. A few minutes later the dryer started making a slight noise and then shut off. Several hours later I tried again and there was a small hunning noise and then the dryer shut off again.

Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermostat that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if bad replace it as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then check the dryer belt and idler pulley...Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test the fuse for continuity before replacing, if the fuse is fine then replacing the motor is recommended repair as the humming sound might have been coming from a bad motor. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Same problem continued: Got lower panel off, both coils OK, igniter works,flame blue, but flame shuts off after ~ 3-4 minutes. Does keeping lower panel off affect this?


Burner assembly will cycle on and off. There are temp controls that cause the on/ off cycle so the clothes don't get too hot or catch fire. It will cycle off faster when empty than with a normal load.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

Takes 3 cycles to dry clothes even on towel cycle


If the clothes are hot when they come out but moist or damp it mean the moisture is not getting vented, Check your vent pipe for blockages or leaks.

My clothes never have a good smell or at best any smell recently. I also never see the water stay in the washing and it suds up like it used to. It appears that when the water is being put in, it is going...


Try this. Run a load of a few towels with no soap, no bleach, no fabric softeners. Set wash water temp to hot. After hot water enters and begins to wash, stop the washer and open the door. Pour in one cup of vinegar (white is fine.) Run the entire wash cycle.

-Buy a supply of High Efficiency Washing detergent (marked "HE") and do not over fill the detergent cup (use a little less than the directions say, never more.)

-Buy a name brand supply of fabric softener with a scent you enjoy and can recognize.

Run the next weeks loads of wash (no need to use Hot water any more) and report back here with how things are smelling. OK?

Getting too hot


sounds to me like a temp control problem, perhaps the heating element controller is faulty allowing the temp to rise over the safety cutout switch range, Hence a cooling down time is required to reset the dryer. Try on cold cycle.. If so try it should run ok
