Question about Frigidaire GLEQ642A Electric Dryer

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!).

    Praise John McCain and put lipstick on his pig - it is fixed! This site educated me considerably, and led me to this site, 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.

When i try turn my frigidaire affinity dryer on it buzzes and goes to pause

Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is buzzing and goes on pause when you attempt to turn it on. This could be a possible issue with your door latch, door strike, or control panel. If you dryer shows pause that means there is an interruption within your cycle. I would advise to look over your door latch and strike to see if there is any apparent damage to either component. If both components appear to be working properly I would advise to have a technician come out to review your control panel. I hope this information has been helpful to some degree. -Matt

Frig. gas dryer agq6000es not tumbling

Do you hear the motor running? With door closed.
Most dryers will spin though a little hard to do so. If it spins VERY easy the belt is possibly broken.
If the dryer is several years old it Could be the belt.
Also check for a switch for the door, if there is one.
Door switch would shut off dryer when opened.

My whirlpool duet front load dryer will not turn on. the light is on inside the dryer, but the panel won't light up

Sounds like the door is not closing completely. Check the connectors that tell the unit the door is closed.

Dryer works and tumbles but does not heat

First, you must remove the front panel. Open the door and remove 2 screws on each side of the opening; 2 in the door hinges and 2 directly opposite from them. Then close and latch the door and pull on the top corners of the panel and it pivots down, then lift off the bottom brackets. Then start the dryer (making sure it's not set for air fluff or no heat) and watch the ignitor to the left side of the burner tube. Report back if it glows or not. Also you might include the first two numbers of the serial number so I can make sure we're talking about the same series machine.
