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.

Hi Robert Burch - From what you have described the unit could possibly have a communication problem with the control panel. However, if the unit is not producing any heat please have a professional diagnose the heating element and the blower assembly as well. Either, or, could be faulty at this time. This is not a typical DIY job so please consult a professional.

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

My dryer does not dry my clothes on any setting, they stay wet and the dryer seems to heat up but the moisture seems to just stay in the dryer. Nothing is getting dried and its frustrating, we made sure...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

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.

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.
