  • How do I use my display or select cycles on my Frigidaire Dryer?

    First, check to ensure the lint filter is clean and in place.  Load the dryer and close the door. Make sure to leave room for the items in the dryer to tumble freely so you can avoid damp areas on your clothing.  It’s recommended to fill the drum 1/3 to 1/2 full.  This also helps reduce wrinkling.

     

    Select your cycle and settings for the load and start the dryer.

    Press the POWER button (if applicable)

    Turn the cycle selector in either direction to scroll to the desired cycle.  The indicator for your cycle will be illuminated on your display.

    Some models will show the estimated cycle time, drying temperature, dryness level and options in the display.

    To change the settings on your dryer, simply press the TEMP and DRYNESS buttons to scroll to the desired settings.

    To select or deselect an option, press the button for that option. The indicator is illuminated when the option has been selected.

    After you have made all your selections, you are ready to go…press START.

     

    If you need to add a forgotten item to your laundry load, press the PAUSE button to pause the cycle or just open the dryer door. Wait for the dryer drum to stop and then you can safely add the item and then close the dryer door and press START again to continue. 

     

    TIP: If you need to change or cancel your settings after the cycle has started, you will need to press POWER to shut down the dryer.  Wait a few seconds, then press POWER again to start re-selecting your settings. Press START once you are ready to begin.

     

    NOTE: For descriptions of each cycle and settings on your Frigidaire Dryer…and when best to use, check out your Owner’s manual for more information. 

  • How can I improve the drying performance of my Frigidaire dryer?

    For descriptions of each cycle settings and options…and when best to use, check out your Owner’s manual for more information.

     

    Always remember to check that the lint filter is clean and in place!

     

    Load items loosely.  The average wet load will fill the dryer drum 1/3 to ½ full.  Items need room to tumble freely for even drying and less wrinkling.

     

    TIP: If drying a single large or bulky item, such as a comforter, remove the item part way through the cycle and turn it “inside out” to maximize drying effectiveness. Place the item back in the dryer and re-start cycle.

     

    You will also easily find solutions to common drying inquiries such as piling, shrinking and wrinkling.

  • How to add a forgotten item to the load in my Frigidaire dryer?

  • How do I care and clean my Frigidaire dryer?

    It’s pretty easy to take care of your Frigidaire dryer…

    Clean the lint filter after every load.  Lint build-up on the filter restricts air flow, which causes longer drying times.

    Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint filter from using dryer-added fabric softener sheets.  Simply wash the filter with warm, soapy water.  Dry the filter thoroughly and put back in the dryer.  DO NOT use the dryer without the lint filter in place.

    Every 18 months, it is recommended to have a qualified service personnel clean the dryer cabinet interior and exhaust duct.  These areas can collect lint and dust over time.  An excessive amount of lint build-up can result in reduced drying performance.

    You can use mild soap and water on the outside surfaces of your dryer. Never use harsh, gritty or abrasive cleansers.

  • Can I use fabric softener sheets with my Frigidaire dryer?

    Yes, you can!  Place the fabric softener sheet on top of the load at the start of the cycle.  To avoid greasy marks on items that you have dried…It is not recommended to add a fabric softener sheet to a warm load.  Always remember to discard the fabric softener sheet after each load – do not reuse.

     

    For safety purposes, do not use fabric softener on children’s sleepwear or other garments labeled flame resistance – it may reduce the effectiveness.

     

    NOTE:  If you experience fabric softener stains, rub them with bar soap and rewash in warm water.

  • Is it normal for my Frigidaire dryer to make sounds or noises?

    Some noises are perfectly normal with your Frigidaire dryer.

    The dryer drum is supported by a set of suspension rollers.  At times there may be a thumping or rolling sound when the dryer starts. This may happen if the dryer has not been in use for a period time, or after a heavy load has remained in the dryer drum for an extended period time. The noise should go away as the dryer operates.

    Your dryer is equipped with a high volume air handling system.  In some cases there may be sounds associated with air movement throughout the dryer, including the air duct, blower, and exhaust system. This is normal and can vary with the load size.

    For Gas models:  You may hear a clicking sound during operation as the valve opens and closes to control the gas flow.

    For Gas models: When the gas burner is operating, there may be sounds generated as the air flow mixes with the gas flame. This noise is normal and will only occur when the gas is ignited.

    Some additional tips if you are experiencing other types of noises:

    Check for belt buckles or other fasteners on clothing items being dried that may cause rattling or clanking sounds. TIP: Fasten these items or turn your clothing inside out to reduce sounds.

    Check the pockets!  Rattling and clanking can also be caused by loose or foreign objects such as coins in the dryer drum.

    Simply stop the dryer and check for any objects.  If you don’t find anything and the noises continue, try running an empty load to see if the noise persists. This will allow you to determine if the noise is coming from the dryer or an article of clothing.

  • What should I do if my Frigidaire dryer is not starting?

    Whether your unit was just installed or you have been using for a while, we recommend checking the following:

     

    Ensure the power cord fits tightly in the wall outlet and you are getting power to your dryer.  If no power, check to ensure a house fuse isn’t blown or the circuit breaker tripped.

    Your thermal limiter may be tripped.  If this is the case, a service provider may be needed to replace.

    Make sure you have turned on your dryer by pressing POWER

    Check to see if delay start was inadvertently activated.

    The control/child lock may be set.

    The door may be open on your dryer.  The dryer will not operate with the door open.

    On some models, if you do not press START within a few minutes of selecting your cycles, the dryer will automatically power down.  You will need to reselect your cycle and press START.

  • What should I do if my Frigidaire dryer is not properly heating or drying?

    If your Frigidaire Dryer was recently installed, here are few things to note:

    For gas models, make sure the gas supply valve is open and the dryer has enough air supply to support the burner flame. Gas models should be connected to a 120 volt circuit.

    Electric models should be connected to a 240 volt circuit.  If your electric dryer is connected to a 208 volt circuit, your drying times will be increased 20%. 

     

    Check your installation instructions for more information.

     

    Additional tips to try:

    • Check that you have selected the appropriate temperature setting for your load. If you load is too big, it will take longer for your clothes to dry.
    • Check that your dryer has proper ventilation. 
    • Clean the lint filter after every use to avoid clogs. Do not use your dryer if the lint filter is blocked, damaged or missing.
    • Ensure the exhaust duct is not restricted. The exhaust duct must be at least 4 inches in diameter and made of rigid or semi-rigid metal.
    • Ensure the dryer fuses are not blown.  If the circuit is blown, the dryer drum may still turn but the heater will not operate. (Electric dryers only)
    • Make sure to leave room for the items in the dryer to tumble freely so you can avoid damp areas on your clothing.  It’s recommended to fill the drum 1/3 to ½ full.  This also helps reduce wrinkling.
    • Did you know…drying times may be increased in areas with high humidity?
    • If you are drying a single large or bulky item, such as a comforter, remove the item part way through the cycle and turn it inside out to maximize the drying effectiveness?  Place the item back in the dryer and re-start.

  • What do the alarms or error codes mean on my Frigidaire dryer?

    Most alarms are designed to alert of you of changes in your dryer or an action on your part is required. For more information, please refer to your Owner’s Manual as they may vary by model.

     

    Your dryer may “chime” at the end of each cycle and periodically during Wrinkle Release if this option is selected; this is perfectly normal.

    If your dryer displays the following error codes:

    • C9 – Control board failed. Service is needed.
    • E4 – Humidity sensor failed.  NOTE:  Your dryer will complete the current cycle and you can still operate manual cycles.  If error code continues, service is needed.
    • E5 – Temperature sensor failed.  Service is needed.
