Re: Trying to trouble shoot problem with Frigidare stack...
There are 2 screws on the bottom/front of the cover to the washer. Remove the screws. Near the top/front of the cover is a seam; insert something flat in the seam (such as a screw driver blade, covered as to not scratch the finish)and pry the cover downward. This worked for me.

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)
Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.
Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,
Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.
Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
i have a frigidare washer dryer combo model fex831fs approximately 6 mo old . turned on a load and water gushing out from underneath, checked hot and cold hoses not leaking, water coming from underneath
I'm trying to remove the top cover in order to relace one of the fins inside the drum. The screws came loose and let go. I'm struggling to get the top off. Which screws in the from need removed to release the front? Thanks.
The switches you are referring to are set-reset. These rarely have a fault. Normally the machine control board is the faulty component. How did you determine that these switches are faulty ?
The safest way to access the upper portion of the washer is to remove the dryer. Another method is to remove the "complete" washer front and the control panel. This will give you access to the top of the washer tub.
The thumping could also be a belt issue if it has a flat spot in it, especially if its a Frigidare Hybrid GE. To get to the element, sorry to say it, but will have to remove the drum and front of machine to get to it. Ohm out all the thermostats and thermofuses first. If it has the round element behind the drum (which it should) check the heater wire for breaks. If its a true GE it will have two wires, Frigidare Hybrid will only have one. Good Luck!!! Jim
