Hello Kathy, sorry it took me a bit to get back with you. Is it correct that you do have a Frigidaire? And the model number is correct? If so, we can get started. There are two types of front bearings that come with these units. They could have the 4 small flat type bearing, or the large felt type with the bearings attached. The diagram that I see looks like it just has the long felt glide (Part # 5303937139) . To access this, remove the two screws at the rear of the top cover. The cover will lift off. Now the fun part (for gawds sake, make sure the unit is unplugged) you will look down inside and see two screws that hold the front to the cabinet. Remove these screws. Now, with a kind, yet tough grip, you want to seperate the front. Tug at the top, you will here something that sounds like it broke, but it hasnt, there are clips that hold the front to the cabinet. There are two swing hinges at the very bottom, you can remove your wires (please remember there locations on the switchs) then lift the cover off. You can now work on your felts. I would recommend replacing the lower felt (Part # 5303283286). Be sure you have on hand some very (VERY) good high grade, heat activated glue for your parts. You should be able to get that stuff at your local appliance parts store. Be sure you get your parts from there too, Sears is way (WAY.....) to expensive on parts and shipping. I should know (wisper...I work for them now). Installation is reverse of break-down, just be sure you get the drum back on the felt glides right, easiest way is to open the door, put your hand inside, and lift the drum while pushing the front back on. Make sure you run the unit on high heat, no clothes inside for a little while to seat the glue. Let me know what else you may need. Thanks and good luck.

Frigidaire Gallery Gas Dryer model fsg747ges1 spins and stops. will not restart until motor cools. happens on all temp settings. What's up? Where can I find a service manual, so I can see how tricky...

Your service manual can be bought from this site =>
I can't give you a free one unfortunately due to copyright
The motor probably is shorted and so needs to be replaced which is why it doesn't work until cool. Let me know how this works out for you.

Dryer is occasionally leaving rusty looking smudge marks on clothing.

don't open door (stop dryer) until cool-down and dryer stops. many times the heating element is still hot and when you stop the dryer in the middle of the cycle, the rear of the dryer where the heating element is, will scorch your clothes.

My Frigidaire gas dryer isn't hot. Otherwise it runs fine.

it could be either your ignitor(glow coil) flame sensor control, or a defective thermal switch telling dryer its at temp and shutting off gas supply before it even fires initially

Clothes get hung or catch in the dryer and buttons get torn off or the clothes sometimes get scorched. I have a 2 year old Frigidaire front loader. Model # LEQ2152EE0. Any advice -- other than buy a new...

I believe your problem is worn out drum glides. You should examine the drum to see if the paint is not worn off where the glides make contact. A loss of coating there will accelerate wear on the new replacement glides. Also the bearing at the rear of the drum should be inspected and replaced if worn, or re lubricated if serviceable. The bearing should be a simple ball and socket assembly.

No heat - long time to dry clothes.

Hi, Is this an electric dryer? The model# shows that is it. If it is gas, you need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is a very common problem with the newer gas dryers. We have them for $27.95. Our # is 1 866 798-4375 Make sure and check the venting to the ouside and make sre that it is clean and has no kinks.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Dryer not heating

  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.

My Frigidaire Gallery front loading dryer does not produce heat any more. It is model number FSG747GES1 and was purchased in March 1998. I don't know if it needs a new heating element or a vent cleaning.

Check to make sure you have 220V. Make sure you have no blockage of air flow (lit glogged up). Unplug dryer, Check your thermostats. If they are good check your heating element and take it out and visually inspect it.
