Question about Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
It can be replaced. Here's a link to your manual for the dryer, which on the 2nd and 3rd pages has a diagram of it and a part number for you...when you have your part number you can order it either directly from Electrolux or find one on Ebay or another online source....if you have a local appliance shop you may be able to get one there as well....here's the link:

It could be the belt was partially broken, and as it came apart causing the dryer to no longer start,,, it made the noise your talking about. If the dryer still heats up, and you can hear the motor running,,, these would all be signs toward a broken belt.

These machines have a metal ball (like a small trailer hitch ball) mounted on the rear of the drum that rides in a plastic saddle mounted on the rear of the machine,
The parts that you need to replace would be the plastic glides mounted in the front of the drum that run on teflon pads glued to the rim around the door. When they get bad you start to notice dammaged clothing.
The drum is allowed to sag down enough that clothing can get into the gap at the bottom and as the drum turns upward the items get pinched when the gap closes at the top.
All these parts can be replaced but be prepared if you do it yourself, this is a tough machine to work on.

Apr 22, 2010 My dryer would not dry the clothes either. the heating element would only come on once then nothing. The high limit thermostat was bad. Pull the electrical plug. Remove the top cover and the thermostat has an orange/black wire to it. It is hard to get to the screws but I was able. Then I found the element would cycle many times but not stay on long enough to dry the clothes thoroughly - I found the culprit - the motor driven fan creats a suctionin the drum and the hot air from the rear coil is pulled thru the drum, thru the front door (via the holes in the door's inner face) down thru the lint screen, thru the outer fan housing and out the exhaust. My problem was that the door's cardboard backing had seperated and along with the trapped lint clogged the door's holes and restricted the air flow. I took the door off, seperated the 2 halves, removed the cardboard and cleaned the lint out. The dryer is now working like new. Summary: The high limit thermostat was bad probably from cycling so much and the air flow diminished slowly over time to the point I did not notice until the clothes just wouldn't dry.
Check the air flow first.
Hope this helps
