Frigidaire LEQ1442ES dryer, beeping 3 times, not working!

I have just bought the above mentioned dryer as a scratch and dent. It had no manual or info included. I attached the power cord and vent. When I press the start button, it beeps three times, and the end row of lights blink with the beeps. I assume this is a code of some sort, but, I am obviously ignorant of what it is indicating. Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I am finding that this dryer goes by model # FEQ1442ES. My dryer's Model number is as listed with the first letter as L. I imagine this is simply a yearly model # change for the same dryer.

I have the same problem with the same dryer, but don't know why either. I was reading on one posting that a button might be stuck so the dryer thinks the button is constantly being pressed.

When I read to manual, it said it was the lint. I use a paint brush to brush the lint off and usually the beeping stops.

The instructions should be with the unit. If not there should be an access panel at the back center above the drawer. Remove the panel and attach it to the connection points inside.

Things You'll Need:

* Owner's manual
* Screwdriver
* Lint bags

Troubleshooting Your Dryer
1. Check the area around the exhaust vent of your dryer. One of the most common causes of dryer problems, including overheating, failing to dry clothes properly and not heating up properly, is that the exhaust has been blocked by dirt, lint, and other debris. In addition, the cheap vent hoses that come with many Electrolux dryers are not adequate for the job, and it is a good idea to replace those vent hoses with higher quality stainless steel replacement hoses. In the meantime, be sure to check the entire length of the vent hose for blockage, removing any kinks as you go.
2. Check the thermal fuse. Many models of Electrolux dryers are equipped with a thermal fuse, and if this thermal fuse is faulty, the dryer may not run at all, or it may run but not generate any heat. Consult your owner's manual for the location of the thermal fuse on your dryer model. On many models, the thermal fuse is located inside the back cover panel; you may need a screwdriver to access this panel. Be sure to unplug the dryer before you get started. If the thermal fuse is blown, be sure to replace it and try to run the dryer again.
3. Check the power cord running to the dryer. If the cord is frayed or damaged it could cause the unit to short out and not run properly. If the cord is damaged, the dryer may run sometimes, but refuse to start at other times. Be sure to check the entire length of the cord, from the point where it attaches to the dryer itself to the point where it plugs into the wall. If the cord is frayed, cut, or damaged it will need to be replaced before you attempt to use the dryer again.

Dryer Cord and Wiring Dryer 3 Wire or 4 Wire

1 Answer

We were recently given a kenmore dryer, without a power cord. How do I attach the 3 wire power cord that I bought to relace it?

Attach the power cord as follows:

1. Remove the cover on the terminal block on the back of the dryer.

2. Match the corresponding wire colors as follows:

a. RED - HOT (120VAC)
b. BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
c. WHITE - Neutral (0 VAC) - should have a ground strap attached, tying it equipment ground.

3. Make sure you use the power cord strain relief clamp when installing the power cord to prevent chaffing of the insulation and wire strain which can lead to broken wires.

NOTE: If the wires are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

For clarification purposes, the following link explains dryer power cord configurations/installation in detail:

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

I don't know how to connect the wires on the plug to the dryer

Hello perfectange,
You should have a power cord that matches the 3 or 4 prong wall receptacle and it's pretty straight forward on how to connect. First off..position the dryer in a place that yuou can gain access to the back of the dryer.. Next, locate the passthru opening for where the new cord goes thru the dryer.. You should have or get the appropriate cable clamp feedthru for passing that cord thru and into the dryer. The clamp prevents you from pulling the wires free from their terminations inside the dryer so don't omit this part of it..
Next, remove the access cover over the terminal block that is inside the dryer and where the power cord is attached. You should see at least 3 terminals and maybe 4.. You should see a Red, White, Black and/or Green double row terminal strip. Attach the red tagged end of your power cord to the red terminal block screw, white to white, black to black.. If you don't have a green one.. that is earth ground and you can secure that to the nearest frame member screw that is unpainted.. If you do have a green terminal for groud, attach it to that one. Make sure all the screws are fairly tight. Make sure the cable clamp is tight and holding the cord from being moved. Then plug it into the mating wall receptacle. I would encourage you to cycle the dryer for a few minutes without clothing in it or the vent attached to verify it heats up and everything works properly. Then reposition it back into its final location, level accordingly and attach the vent duct ..
Hope this helps..

Roper Dryer heats for 5 minutes then stops heating but still tumbles. I haven't a manual so there isn't a schematic to work with. Appreciate any suggestions;

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
