Dryer surface too hot to touch


this dryer is an electrical heated dryer i suppose, ask an electrician to check the heat sensor, for this should trigger the on and off switch of the heater according to the drying cycle you set your dryer.

I have checked and cleaned the vent hose and screen. However the back of the dryer gets very hot. Also the top gets to hot to even place your hand on it Frigidare GLER341As2


There is a safety thermo switch that is located on the top rear by the controls, it may be going bad, as if the coils get to hot it is suppose to shut the dryer down.

Why is the top of my dryer getting so hot?


Check the moisture vent for restrictions from the dryer to where it exits outside. If it is restricted dryer will overheat. Also thermostat could be faulty causing dryer to overheat. And finally the insulation might have moved out of place inside the dryer causing the top to get very hot.

Dryer stays hot hours after using it


The heater has failed and/or is shorting to the case. Remove the rear panel. The heater is on the right side, attached to the heater housing with two screws.
