Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

The Dryer is a Frigidaire Affinity Model AE06500CFG0. It is a 2007 model. I have to redo the drying because it does not totally dry. I cleaned the back of the dryer, the hose and the trap near the ceiling and the pipe which leads to outside the condo. I also moved it away from the wall for more circulation. I do see the element on at the start of drying. What else can I do before I call for service.

SOURCE: not drying in one cycle

pry the top up at the corners and then open the top. now look inside the front panel about 4 inches down on both sides and remove the 2 screws or hex heads holding the front to the cabinet. Remove door switch wires and remove front, carefull drum will drop slightly, you may want to lay it on it's back before removing front panel. from there if you have posted right or close to right model number, the 3 screws you see in the drum, remove them after undoing your belt. remember how you undo the belt so that you can put it back on the right way. Pull drum up out of cabinet and there you will see your heat element. from this site it shows a double element. Might be only one half working causing the lenghthy dry time if this is bad replace it you'll know if one half is bad. Clean all you can while apart you can also slide out the rear bearing out of the bearing cup and apply some high temp grease there. If your element is good change the thermostat. from the looks of this belt make sure the grooves are facing up on the drum or it won't go back on right on the motor and tensioner pulley. I hope this helps you and Good luck.

SOURCE: my hotpoint dryer takes forever to dry We have

You will have to access the dryer to clean the internal ductwork. If the venting is good, another thing that will cause a dryer to take a long time to dry is a faulty high limit thermostat. It is a small, round, black device mounted on a plate and attached to the internal ductwork with two screws. While inside, also check the thermal fuse and heating element. These can be checked with a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity. If a component does not have continuity, then it is defective and will need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Here is a pic of thermal fuse and high limit thermostat to help you out.

How do i fix dryer taking long time to dry

BAD HEATING ELEMENT. I believe that particular model has a ring type heater coil; very effective but fragile. The dryer must be disassembled until you see the entire heater coil, I've attached a photo. The replacement is less than $80 via Amazon Prime, I know, I've done this. The kicker is that the coil was still putting out a little heat but taking forever to dry. You're just asking for a fire or a total breakdown which could adversely affect your control board (not cheap). Hope this helps. 5307dbc3-6273-485b-aaec-414a05b9c79c.jpg

How to get the error code test on Frigidaire affinity model FARE1011MW

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are receiving an error code on your Frigidaire dryer, model# FARE1011MW. I see that when you press the start button, your dryer beeps and the drying light begins flashing. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Why is my Affinity dryer not heating as well as it was put new dryer hose in back just taking touble time to dry a small load of clother & I double spin the load also

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer is taking double the time to dry a small load of clothes. I also see that you have put a new dryer hose on the back of your appliance to try and correct this issue. I suggest making sure that you have also cleaned out the lint filter as well as where the lint filter sits. You can clean the lint filter by running it under the hottest water you can stand and using a cleaning brush, gently, to remove any build-up. You can clean where the lint filter sits with a small attachment on your vacuum. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer shuts off after a couple of minutes, and all the lights flash. I also see that it works on timer drying, and that you have cleaned the lint out from the entire system. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Return power and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please leave the model number of your dryer in your comment. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Frigidaire affinity dryer problem

the thermistor in air outlet duct is very common for these. with front panel off find plastic duct from blower at bottom. pull out thermistor and look at inner side. it has triangular shape and if you can see shiny redish color at tip instead of all black then its worn. this causes numerous heat and control issues.
