My Frigidaire model FLXE52RBS9 stackable washer/dryer does not dry.   With the door open (switch bypassed), the coil glows and air flow seems normal.  Where do I start?


Also, in a previous thread, someone linked me to this repair manual, which now seems broken:

Is there a new location?

Check the duct work to make sure it's not kinked or restricted with lint build up inside.

Agree with AJ. Also, per quote above, you say the coil glows but do you have burner ignition & flame?

FIXED!   It was (as suggested) lint build up in the vent cover outside.  My perception of normal airflow into the dryer lint filter was actually weak airflow.  Much stronger, now that its fixed.

I guess its another one to Occam's Razor (the simplest solution).

Thanks for all your help!

Never heard of Occam's Razor before, interesting.

Glad you got it fixed, thanks for the update.  O0
