Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer
At first my dryer was just making a loud noise, then it started sounding like metal scrapping. After awhile it started to get my clothes stuck and burning them. Now it won't dry them. Is it more then one problem?
Hello Cynthia J Valenzuela - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the belt, front and/or rear bearing, or a loose connection with the motor or drum. If the unit is no longer heating it could also possibly have a defective control board, power supply, heating element, sensor or high limit thermostat. I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the issue, the part(s) may have to be replace depending if they are worn, damaged or loose.

UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
You may have two problems:
1...The felt seal around the door is faulty,broken, or out of place.This will cause the problem of zippers,buttons, etc. to get caught between the door and the drum
2...Drum rollers, this causes squeaks,and thump type of noises.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication and the felt seal between the door and drum maybe faulty.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt,and felt seal.
Check your felt seal at this time to see if you can reinstall it or you may have to replace it.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise and the problem of getting clothes caught in between the door and drum.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps
