Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Frigidaire gallery dryer. I changed the heating coil. It was making the squealing sound and not heating. Found the heating coil broken and was rubbing on the drum. I changed the coil. Now it pops the circuit breaker when you start it? What is the problem?

SOURCE: Frigidaire Gallery Heavy Duty Front Load Dryer problem

it's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire gallery

the dryer circuit will be clearly labelled in the house box, there will be two fuses or a single two phase breaker for this circuit.
there are not usually electrical fuses as such IN a dryer, there are thermostats to regulate temperature, and a thermal fuse, that cuts the power totally to the heat element if air temperature rises above its melt point.
the element itself has a limited life span and may fuse/burnout.
to test electrical components.
Unplug dryer
open case, by removing the front,
described elsewhere in any of the 'changing belt' threads
locate the thermal cutouts, on the fan housing or exhaust duct and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire
3aca526.jpg5d18df6.jpg thermal cuttouts look like these ~1inch accross.
locate the heat element and disconnect one wire to isolate it from the rest of the circuit, test with ohmmmeter, no-continuity replace, continuity reconnect wire

while you have the dryer open de-lint the fan and exhaust ducting, most common cause of element or themal fuse failure is air flow restriction
7713ef8.jpgce0732c.jpg you get a lot of lint out of the fan even when proper cleaning is done, and clean out the ducting right to the exterior walls
95b69b0.jpgthis was the rather extreme result of not cleaning the duct (brainiac placed a wire across the terminals of the burnt out thermal fuse)

SOURCE: Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.

Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL

My Frigidaire gallery dryer stopped working it will buzz when I turn the starter knob but never starts nor does the drum turn ,then I smell a burning smell


if you can hear the motor running then probably the belt is either too loose and/or broken (you may hear a rubbing or squeeling sound).....if you cant hear the motor running then it may be burned out....a very acidy smell.

Either problem requires taking the dryer apart to fix (new belt or new motor)

Frigidaire dryer gallery series wont spin


Hello Hannah Kottman - Sounds like the tub is unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Lg dryer - front load - making a grinding noise


I also have the same problem as klrlesimmons, exactly as described. Sounds like sand is rubbing as the drum turns, and also sounds out of balance.

Repairmen replaced upper and lower glides and also the plastic bearing but not the entire bearing assembly.
