    Default "Clean Lint Filter"

    Frigidaire dryer
    Model: FEFB9100ES0
    Complaint: Ran 3 loads and Clean Lint Filter light came on and quit running.
    Only the second time I have come across this problem.
    Note: Dryer the guy had before getting this one from,me showed definite sign of arcing on one of the prongs. I told him a fee things to check the plug itself being one of them.
    This dryer was running fine in my shop a couple of days ago.
    The only repair I had done to it was thermal cutoff replacement and a good cleaning of the inside.
    Would the moisture sensor cause this?

    Hi,

    Dryer repair sheet linked here.

    Ran 3 loads and Clean Lint Filter light came on and quit running.
    Sounds like something may have over heated.

    Would the moisture sensor cause this?
    I wouldn't think so.
    I'd ignore the clean filter part and just concentrate on the dead/not running dryer...power, limit thermostats, ect.

    Thanks Jeff. Will do that. Sounds like I need to replace all stats and maybe look for places air might be seeping in.

    One of the wires to the door switch had come off.
    Made sure they were all secure. Seems to have solved the problem.
    Hope I have them on right. I touched the moistur sensor once and git a tingle.
    Rearranged the wires. Runs with door shut. Shuts down with door open.
    Should either of the leads on the moisture sensor show continuity with the ground plug on the cord?
    Can't seem to find the wiring diagram here.
    Going to check the manual link you sent to see if I can determine what size dryer this is. Five pairs of geans seem to be quite a bit in it. Not sure they can tumble freely enough to completely dry in 45 minutes. Maybe I checked them a little after the cooldown part of the cycle. Cooldown is not shown on the dial, assuming it has a cool down at the end of heating cycle.

    All dryer cycles should have that yes.

    Looks like both go back to the board/control.

    I touched the moisture sensor once and git a tingle.
    That part works eh!!??!!

    Bottom of the tech sheet linked before.
