We have had a consistent problem with our dryer. The lint filter eats any staps in the dryer. I have found straps from bras, tops, and belts twisted around the lint filter. They get caught on the edge...

Dryer wont tumble when loaded.


check for a "glazed" drum belt or a broken "idler" pulley near or on the motor that keeps the belt tight on the drum

My electric frigidaire dryer has stopped turning and will over heat. what could be the problem?


The belt driveing the drum has probably broken. The tumble action is essential to proper and safe drying of clothing. It will need to be replaced.

My frigidaire gallery dryer stopped tumbling. My husband has it to where it will tumble.. until we put clothes in it.


Either the drum bearings are in bad condition (front outer edge and center rear of the drum), the belt is in poor condition from the heat, or the belt tension device (a tension spring or idler pulley bearing) is not working correctly. This can be accessed from the lower rear. If the belt is bad, the front panel must be removed to allow the belt to pass over the drum.

If Dryer does not tumble , check the following:

" It won't tumble If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.


  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.


  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.


If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it."Source Repaiclinic
