    I have repalced the ignitor and cleaned all of the lint from the interior of the unit. I have also cleaned the lint filter with soap and water. The unit runs but will not light off, no heat !

Does the Ignitor heat up? If not, the timer might not be telling the gas system to start.

If the ignitor is heating up, and there is no gas, it may be a wiring problem or a gas valve problem. Need more information to solve.

Next step if ignitor is working, is to check to see if voltage is being sent to the gas valve.

Dryer is not getting as hot taking longer to dry clothes.FRIGIDAIRE MODEL GLER341AS2.


If your dryer is STILL heating, but your dryer is showing signs of heavy condensation or longer dry times, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. As the dryer exhausts, moisture from your clothing is circulated with the warm air. If you have any restrictions in the exhaust system, the moisture will collect inside the ducting and drum. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
If you do determine you have an internal component problem, the next link can give you some helpful advice on how to troubleshoot a dryer with a no heat problem: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574266-thorough_dryer_advice http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576548-dryer_runs_but_does_not_heat If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My Frigidaire dryer has an error code of AD and is taking forever to dry our cloths. Please help.?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code AD means air/auto dry. This type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break disengaging the heating element, there for the dryer has a busted heating element, you’ll need to replace it then it should be good to go. Normally runs parts and labor about 150. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Frigidaire dryer error E4A dryer will run for about 45 seconds then shutoff and start beeping and showing the above error code


Hi,

This is this is the "program Timeout Fault". Meaning the drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle.Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes. Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START. Check for anything that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closet with solid door, or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic control.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Frigidaire dryer heats but clothes not drying


A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
