My Frigidaire dryer model # FDE847GES0 spins and heats. When it stops to change direction, often it wont start back up. Some times it does, sometimes it wont. What is the cause of this?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FDE847GES0, spins and heats. I also see that when it stops to change direction, it is intermittently starting back up. There are numerous possibilities that can be causing this. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your dryer as well as determine what the cause of your appliance not starting back up after it changes direction. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire Gallery 5.8 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer GLGQ2152ES There are two issues. One, is that clothes are getting caught and ripped by the dryer. Only once was I able to see where it was caught. Usually...

Yes it us the drum. I am thinking that it is one of the rollers/coasters that keep the drum up against the back of the dryer. In order to actually see if this is the problem we will need to take apart the dryer.
1) unplug dryer
2) open dryer door remove all screws
3) with a flat tip screwdriver gently pry on the two top corners(clips inside) until it pops
4) pull panel forward as we will need to disconnect the door switch
5) set panel aside (oh remember to put screws into a container)
6) lift up on the top panel til a 90, it is hinged won't fall
7) take careful notes of the routing of the belt, draw it out, take a picture etc.
8) remove belt(notice it was centered)
9) lift up and out on the drum
10) the rollers/coasters are bolted or should be to the back wall of dryer, and of circle shape. More then likely they are not.
11) Call an appliance parts store tell them what you need, remove bad rollers if need be take them with you.
12) replace rollers
13) re-insert drum making sure lip is behind new rollers
14) consult drawing/pictures of belt routing
15) route belt
16) notice belt is in middle of drum and drum can be turned by hand
17) find front panel, re-attach door switch
18) let top lid done and push it should click back
19) find screws
20) plug in dryer
Good Luck Tim

How to install a dryer belt?

Think I can help. Use a large screwdriver "flat head" and pry up the top of dryer. there is a clip on each side on front of dryer. the top should lift in front and stay connected in rear. Prop the top up with something so it doesnt fall. Then look inside twards front and you will see a screw near top on each side. Remove these and the two screws on bottom front close to floor. There is also a ground wire attached to the front with a clip. This can also be slid off with a screwdriver. On some models you have to remove the door. If so just remove the screws that secure the hinge. Now the front should be free. Lift up to remove it. Now you have access to the components. Look in twards motor and you will see a tentioner that keeps the belt tight. Its spring loaded. Push it away from belt and remove belt. Now its just a matter of taking out old belt. Install new belt in reverse of removal. Hope this helps and good luck.

Can't Put Belt On

You have to remove the front of the dryer to
access the drum. First unplug the dryer.There are screws at the bottom of the front to remove the lower section. Once you remove that you can get to the screws for the door section. The front of the drum rides on the inside of the front panel so when you remove the panel the drum will drop down. Try to keep the drum in place with something to hold it up. Remove the old belt and place the new belt around the drum. Slid the belt back to where the belt used to ride and then loop the belt around the motor and the tension wheel. Make sure the tension wheel is tightening the belt. Hold up the drum and put the front panel back on. You may need a helper to hold things while you do this. Rotate the drum by hand and make sure it moves smoothly. Plug it back in and give it a try. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask. Please rate me so I know if I'm Helping. Thanks.

How to stack w/d gas Frigidaire Gallery dryer

You are supposed to remove the top of the washer, and the dryer feet lock into brackets...but being lazy I just bolted the dryer to the washer using some metal straps (1/16" x 8 x 4 ") with some machine screws, and it's been fine for years. Not pretty, but I had the same question and no handy internet to help me at the time ;P
