Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES just hums when you start it... doesn't turn

I just finished drying a load of laundry, and then the next load wouldn't turn.  There's just a humming noise.  All of the controls light up. There may be a coin trapped inside one of the inside 'spokes'.
What is your thought?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Thanks jtbjtb.... The clogged blower was the answer for now, but the motor may be the issue down the road.

    Thanks again.

Unfortunately, this is probably a bad motor, part # 131560100. It retails for $129 but can be found for around $100 shipped online. You can inspect for a clogged blower first by removing the front panel.

Frigidaire electric dryer will not stay on for

Reach inside and turn the drum by hand. It should be very eay to turn. If it is not easy to turn then something needs to be replaced such as glides or drum bearing.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.

Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

When I press the start switch I hear audible hum and the drum doesn't run.

This often means that motor isn't turning. Check for sock in blower wheel. If not, try and turn blower wheel. If turns hard you probably need motor.

Dryer won't start

If you are getting s slight HUM when you press the start button,your motor is experiencing some problems. If you do not hear a hum, and after letting the dryer cool down for several hours, it suddenly works again, your motor has an internal short and is shutting itself down via the internal overload. If there is no hum of any kind, even after letting it cool off for a long time, then either there has been a failure of a part in the line such as the door interlock switch, the timer contact or there is a thermal overload in the back of the dryer, down by the blower, it is white in color and it has probably opened up.
