Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My Frigidaire Gallery front loading dryer does not produce heat any more. It is model number FSG747GES1 and was purchased in March 1998. I don't know if it needs a new heating element or a vent cleaning.

Check to make sure you have 220V. Make sure you have no blockage of air flow (lit glogged up). Unplug dryer, Check your thermostats. If they are good check your heating element and take it out and visually inspect it.

    You can at least check to make sure it is not clogged up. Do you clean the lint tray? Make sure the line that blows the hot air out is not clogged up. You can at least do that. If it is blowing out more than likely that is not it. Just to get a repair man to the house is 100.00. (at least in Northern Va). A new heating element will run between 80.00 and 140.00 just for the part if that is it. A thermostat around 40.00.

Replace bearing in a GE SXH47eg1WW dryer


The bearing is the plastic which holds the front glides. It just snaps in place and is easy to remove using flat blade screw driver. The bearing has 3 or four glides which are purchased separately. The rear of the dryer also has a bearing which is plastic part number WE3x75 on the old models, newer models use a different number.

Makes a ticking or clicking noise when dryer is on. How can I fix it? The heat and tumbler still works though.


Hi Lisa, thank you for your post!

Based on the above-listed model number, FEX831CS it shows you have a Frigidaire laundry center. However, you mentioned that it is a gallery series. So do you have a laundry center or a Frigidaire gallery dryer? In order to better address the issue, what is your model number? You can typically locate the serial tag, which lists your model number, on the right or left edge on the inside of the door. How often do you hear the ticking or clicking noise? With this information I can better assist you. Thank you!

Frigidaire Gallery Gas Dryer model fsg747ges1 spins and stops. will not restart until motor cools. happens on all temp settings. What's up? Where can I find a service manual, so I can see how tricky...


Your service manual can be bought from this site => http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Service-Manual/948565
I can't give you a free one unfortunately due to copyright
The motor probably is shorted and so needs to be replaced which is why it doesn't work until cool. Let me know how this works out for you.

Frigidaire gas dryer, gallery series model GLGQ2152ESO - no heat,


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

My Frigidaire gas dryer isn't hot. Otherwise it runs fine.


it could be either your ignitor(glow coil) flame sensor control, or a defective thermal switch telling dryer its at temp and shutting off gas supply before it even fires initially

Frigidaire Gallery Dryer Needs Two Cycles to Dry Clothes


A dryer needs to exhaust properly in order to dry no matter where it's situated. Insure that the venting is not crushed at the back and that it has a good strong air flow outside

Dryer not heating


  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.
