My clothes in my dryer takes several times before clothes are completely dried. I think its the thermostat, but not sure. Can you tell me what you think it is?
Answer Hello Robert. If the dryer is heating, it is most likely an air flow issue. You will need to check the blower wheel and all the duct work inside the unit.

Answer Hello Robert. If the unit is heating, It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
Frigidaire gas dryer. 7 Years old, out of warranty. Gas valve opens in cycle (low flow), ignitor glows nice and red, starts flame, high flow gas opens, dryer starts to dry. During some (not all) cycles, gas valves cycling at very high rate - clickety-clack, clickety-clack. Flame sensor was good (continuity), but replaced anyway. Coils suspect, but within range, repalced anyway. Gas valves operate freely (no binding). What else is there? The random nature of excessive gas valve opening/closing suggests something other than a continuity device issue, but not sure where to go from here. Any help?
Answer David, Based on your post, you'll need to start looking at the heater relay on the control board 134523200 or the motor switch 131560100, The heater relay supplies voltage to the valve(through the thermistor and hi limit thermostat) and the motor switch completes the circuit to netral. If there is a loose wire connection or the relay or motor switch has a weak contact , the gas valve can Short cycle and make a chattering or clacking noise. Good Luck and Thanks
The dryer gets way to hot, we checked all the lint traps, the outside lint thing, and nothing is blocked, it melts delicate fabric. We have it on the lowest heat setting and it gets so hot sometimes the cloths are to hot to touch. It has ruined almost all of our clothes. I need to know what part we would need to replace to make it dry right? PLEASE if anyone can help , I just am at my whits end, I cant afford to buy new clothes! Thank you guys! Oh yea someone told me to get a cycle thermostat, and I looked here and it doesnt say it has one, it says stfty thermostat? Is that the same thing? thank you everyone!
Answer Dana, The safety thermostat is not likely the issue,at this point. It's rated at 180 dgs.F. and usually causes the dryer to run longer than expected and the clothes are damp in most cases. If you want to try a new thermostat consider the regulating thermostat 131298400 or temperature selector switch 134398500 . But the ideal situation would be to check the exhaust temperature, with the venting disconnected from the dryer, with a "cooks pocket thermometer" and check for an average temperature of 150 to 160 dgs.F. on the high temperature setting. Good Luck and Thanks
