My dryer is getting hot but not as hot as it should and its taking forever to dry a load of clothes. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Heather. 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.
What is the problem with dryer if E63 comes up on screen?
Answer Hello RT. The error code E63 is a No heat issue. You will need to test the element in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My dryer runs fine but doesn't get hot. What could the problem be?
This issue could be one of several issue. The first thing that you will want to check is to make sure that the thermal fuse and Hi temperature are good by checking them for continuity. If they check ok then you will then want to determine which side of the heating circuit you are loosing power from. You will want to access the heater, disconnect the power to the unit. With the power disconnected then disconnect one side of the heating element. With the wire disconnected you will check from the loose wire to chassis ground to make sure that there is 120 vac. Keeping the wire loose you will then check the other wire that is still attached to the heating element for 120 vac. The unit must be running to do this. If the power checks ok with 120 vac on each leg then the heater is faulty. IF there is power missing from one side then that would be the issue. If the one that goes to the thermostat is showing power then the timer side would be good but if this is the side not getting power then the timer is the issue. If there is no power at the other side then the motor that would be the issue.
I have a Frigadaire dryer and it displays E-64 also it doesn't get hot just warm. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Micah. The E64 indicates a heater open circuit, heating element or wiring defect. Check the heating circuit of the unit.
Dryer doesn't heat up.
Answer Hello Bob. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity.

Dryer stays hot all the time.. When you open the door it still is glowing.
Answer Hello Anna. You will need to replace the heater on the unit. It is grounded and is touching metal on the unit.
