If it runs then the fuse is not blown so it is most likely a broken element. Start here:
Dryer not heating - 5a3cea6.jpgTIP: you do not need to spend 90 bucks on a heater pan and element you can get a restring kit for 1/3rd the price, Just off the top of my head I would say you need part number 5300622032 restring kit. No more than 25 bucks.

I have a frigidaire gallery series front loading electric dryer model # 134509400c.press start and it beeps with a dr code.any idea what is causing this?


dr is door error
this generation of dryer has alot of control board failures(the relay for the heat burns the terminals for the wires you can inspect these relay connection visably by removing the front control panel you might want to try setting the machine to the fluff/air dry setting and try starting the dryer, if it starts in air fluff you need to check the connections on that relay this is not a factory taught test.its just something a customer pointed out one time and i have tried on many after the fact, and for whatever reason these machines will still run in fluff mode when the board is fried

I have no heat in dryer


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.

I have a gas Frigidaire Gallery dryer. There is an error code "LOC". I can't get it to work now.


This indicates there is an error with the door lock mechanism. It will most likely need to be replaced. This will prevent the dryer from working and is a safety feature to prevent injury while the dryer is in operation. It is fairly quick and cheap to repair.

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.
