Fridgidaire FGRB5700DS0 Only Certain Modes Produce Heat
I have a two year old Frigidaire dryer model FBRB5700DS0. It has recently only begun to produce heat in the timed heat mode only. The automatic mode does not seem to produce heat at all. The lint trap in front is clear. Do I need to take the hose off in the back and have a look there? Any assistance would sure be appreciated!

The control thermostat has failed. It's mounted to the plastic air duct that your lint trap slides into. You'll have to unplug the unit and remove the front panel to get to it. The part number is #131298400 and is available at a local appliance parts retailer. Cost is about $32.00.

what's the brand name of the dryer and send the model number,if it's gas does the ignitor glow orange but no flame,also if it's gas when you start it you should hear a click,if you don't most likely the dryer is clogged with lint or the vent line is blocked with lint and the high heat popped the thermal fuse,but let me know what you have
Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.
i have a frigidare washer dryer combo model fex831fs approximately 6 mo old . turned on a load and water gushing out from underneath, checked hot and cold hoses not leaking, water coming from underneath
Unplug unit! Remove top screws and pull off top lid of dryer. Heater terminals should be at top right. Use ohm meter to check resistance. If ohms won't display, then your heater unit probably has an open circuit. For instance, my GLET1031 has a reading of 12.5 ohms.
