Ive seen this before. There was actually a coin that had fallen out of the drum and got stuck on one of the contacts, causing it too short. Open the dryer panel, unplug it first, and look for any signs of a coin or somthing shorting a circuit. Thats step one. Hope this helps. Dave www.washermd.com

Frigidaire Affinity panel turns on (lights up), even counting down, but the dryer won't tumble or heat. Help?!


Hi margaretc920 - Often when a dryer turns but will not heat, it is because either a fuse from the fuse box is blown or the switches on the breaker tripped, depending on your house. If your house uses fuses, there are two house fuses that supply voltage to the dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two fuses is blown, the unit may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. However, if the house has circuit breakers, there may be two breakers with switches that supply voltage to the dryer and if one is tripped the unit as well will experience this issue. The heater of a dryer requires 220 to 240 volts to operate. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household breaker to the off position. Wait approximately two minutes, turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If the issue persists, it could also potentially mean a number of other things: defective cord, wiring, control board or door switch. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the dryer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Hi I have a dryer model # GLEQ215ES1 The dryer will run proper if I turn the heat off, but when heat is on it only runs for about 10 minutes and shuts off and all the lights on the right side blink.. Any...


It sounds like the hi-limit thermostat. For your dryer that would be Frigidaire part number 5303281113 shown below. The part is located behind the drum. You will need to take the back off of the unit to access the part. Sears carries the part.
  1. Take the back cover off of the dryer
  2. locate the part
  3. unplug one of the two wires from the old part
  4. plug that wire into the same post on the new part
  5. unplug the remaining wire from the old part
  6. plug the other wire into the new part
  7. unfasten and remove the old thermostat (with no wires)
  8. fasten the new part (with wires) into the old parts place
  9. run the dryer to see if the fix works
  10. replace the back cover on the dryer.
Steps 3 through 6 above insures that you get the two wires installed correctly. ddmagee57.jpg
