Question about Frigidaire GLEQ642A Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Frigidaire front load won't tumble

I get only a low buzz when I turn it on. The light works, and the light goes out when I manipulate the closed-door button by hand. I don't see any burnt or loose wires (except two with a male end that seem to have nowhere to go).
Was working fine until couple days ago (guess things have to break sometime!).

TIA!

    Praise John McCain and put lipstick on his pig - it is fixed! This site educated me considerably, and led me to this site,http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.ph... Together these sites educated me about start windings and normal run windings, as well as the troubleshooting tip of pushstarting the thing to see whether the dryer starts to run after getting an assist, which would indicate that the start winding, or the start capacitor (are those the same thing?) is or might be bad. Lo and behold, the troubleshoot was the fix! Pushed it, it started to go on its own, and the next time I hit start off it went.

    Thanks very much to all.

Reason for door codes on a frigdaire front load dryer


Assuming door seal is good, make sure there is nothing "caught" under the seal that prevents the door from closing properly. Otherwise, look for anything else that would contribute to that issue. Possibly the door switch that turns on the interior light and acts as a safety for a door open situation may not be operating properly. See my "generic" tip for "buzzing" dryer issues.
