You either have a tripped safety switch, a burnt element, or a burnt/loose wire to/from the element and or safety switches/controlls.

If you are handy, and have the tools, it should be a fairly easy repair.

You will need a volt/ohm meter to check the element for continuity, the safelty limit switches for continuity to lacate which part is the problem. (some switches are push button resset, some are one time trip and must be replaced.

The second issue is what caused it to quit in the first place.

The #1 cause for that type of failure, is lack of airflow due to a clogged vent pipe.

Make sure the filter, dryer outlet, pipt and outlet from the house is all clear from lint, birds nests, kinks etc.

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.

I ust replaced belt/tensioner/front upper and lower felt and rear bearing and clean vent out still have a vibration/ humming noise could noise come from exhaust blower ?


That is exactly what it is. Frigidaire dryers are known for the bearing wearing down and causing the vibration. Here is the new blower you need.
Don't forget to move the thermostat over from the old blower to the new one!

Clothes get hung or catch in the dryer and buttons get torn off or the clothes sometimes get scorched. I have a 2 year old Frigidaire front loader. Model # LEQ2152EE0. Any advice -- other than buy a new...


I believe your problem is worn out drum glides. You should examine the drum to see if the paint is not worn off where the glides make contact. A loss of coating there will accelerate wear on the new replacement glides. Also the bearing at the rear of the drum should be inspected and replaced if worn, or re lubricated if serviceable. The bearing should be a simple ball and socket assembly.

Heat not confined to tub


You should check the drum seal, front and rear. Also important is the dryer venting. If the vent is restricted by a kinked vent hose or run an excessive distance as is the case in most apartment homes and conduminums

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.
