Frigidaire Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


To remove gas (petrol) smell from clothing, soak overnight in baby oil (use like you would downy), then wash in baking soda, then wash with normal detergent. It will rid "gas smell" from an entire basket of clothes. Air Dry ONLY
From ehow website:
Step1
Buy a bottle of baby oil. Since gas is an oil based product it is going to take an oil based product to clean the gas out of your clothing. Baby oil is a great product to use as it shouldn't, in most cases, cause further damage to your clothing.
Step2
Soak your clothes with a bit of laundry detergent, water, and a generous portion of baby oil. Also dab some right on the stain before soaking.
Step3
Swash your clothes in the water for a while and let them sit for about five minutes. Transfer the clothes into your washer, once again remembering not to mix them with any other clothing, and let the cycle finish.
Step4
Wash the clothes. If you have a top load washer, let it partially fill up about 1/4 of the way with water. Put some of the baby oil in the wash with the clothes and swash it around a bit. Once the washer cycle begins, add the detergent and let the cycle finish. Make sure that your gas coated clothes are the only clothes you put in the wash.
Step5
Dry your clothing. Make sure you only AIR DRY on a clothes line these clothes. It could take more than one wash to get all the oil out of your clothing. If you use the dryer after the first, or even the second time, you could risk starting a fire in your dryer.
Step6
Check and see if any smell remains in your clothing. If the smell of gas remains on the clothing repeat the wash with baby oil again until the smell is gone.

If you use fabric softener sheets in your dryer, they eventually will deposit enough residue in your lint trap to close up the mesh. Usually you cannot see the residue, although it is blocking the movement of air through it. My advise would be to remove the lint trap and run it under hot water and clean it well, then try the dryer with the clean lint trap. I hope this works for you and solves your problem.

Check the owners manual or manufacturers website for error codes. Most likely cause...a bad control board.You tube will most likely have "how to replace" videos for your assistance.
Good luck...

Typically there is a wiring diagram inside console area or on back of dryer.

That error is an E5b error. This indicates a problem with the heating element, the thermistor or the control board. You'll need to unplug the unit and access the wiring. Inspect the heating coil for breaks. Then test the voltage across the element (should see the line voltage) and check the resistance at the thermistor (should be ~50000 Ohms in a room temperature environment). If the above are okay, your control board is probably bad.

If you post a comment with the model number, I may be able to point you the appropriate parts. If your dryer is under warranty, contact Frigidaire.

I hope this helps.

Hello Becky;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

E65 = High limit thermostat trip count too high.

In other words, you probably have a restricted air flow problem. Your blower will shut down if your plugged up with lint.

In the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. At the bottom of the manifold is a small round connection. This is generally where the dyer air flow is blocked. There are only a few screws holding it on. Un plug your unit, remove the hot air distribution manifold, Clean the manifold and around the blower wheel. Turn the wheel by hand to ensure it is not stuck and free.

If this is not the problem, get back to me and we will talk about the high temperature thermostat.
