    First the circuit blew for my dryer, after I flipped it - dryer would turn on, but when I hit the start button it made a "beep, beep, beep" sound, the panel would blink but the dryer would not actually start and would just continue to blink. Is it a malfunction with the panel? Is their a way to reset it? (I've tried holding the 'control' button for 4 seconds and that did not work? any suggestions?

try tripping your circet breakers dont assume that just because it lights up both lines are working you can have a partial tripped breaker and just be getting 110 to the drier its easy enough to just go ahead and reset the breakere if that dont work get back to me

SOURCE: my dryer is stuck on "Control Lock"

See if you can get into the diagnostic mode. If not, you will need to replace the "user interface" on the machine. Here is a link to the part if you should need it.
ACTIVATING THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE 1. Make sure that the dryer is in the "Standby" mode (plugged in and all of the indicators are off). 2. Press the following control panel keypad sequence all within 5 seconds: More Time-Less Time-More Time- Less Time. 3. All indicators on the console should now be illuminated with "88" showing in the "Estimated Time Remaining" display, if this test mode has been entered successfully.

It is not related to moisture directly by any chance. If END OF CYCLE does not work. it can be short circuit inside which can cause this. Moisture can cause short circuit or the whole control board may be faulty.

Frigidaire Dryer model # LEQ1442ES0. The lights come on and beep at us like normal when I change settings but when I press start, they just blink and beep but wont turn on.


Thank you for your post, friend!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer is not starting and the lights just blink. It sounds like a faulty door switch or control panel. I would check to make sure the latch or door strike is not cracked or broken if the door is not closing properly that could be the cause of your dryer not starting.

You could also perform a reset on your dryer and that could help clear any faulty error codes within your dryer. To reset your dryer you would unplug the power cord for ten minutes. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt

Dryer will not start


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not start. I also see that when you press the start button, the lights above the Control button blink and your dryer beeps. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try running any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I would replace parts. It still is cheaper than a new unit. So get the new control panel and do it yourself and save money. The average life of a dyer is dependant only on when the owner gives up. I just serviced on last week that was 25 years old.

Dryer won't start. Lights come but when I hit the start button the lights blink and it beeps 3x and then nothing.


There's usually a paper behind the panel in the back that has a wiring diagram and descriptions of what the beep codes mean. If you pull the back off of the control panel you should find it folded up in there.

Malber Dryer won't start (sine-wave light flashing)


The dryer is easy: turn it on and turn the control to 0. It will beep. Then turn it to the desired program (20, 40, 60 minutes or a pre-programmed cycle), it will beep again and start. If there's a red light you have to empty the water tank at the front on the left. The washer is a normal washer. Just pick your program and press start (be patient as it takes a while to get cranking). Sometimes you have to really push the door closed very hard. Try and turn the control to 12 o'clock before setting it again.
