Scraping sounds and electrical sparks inside my dryer.

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

Hi Keith, I am happy to assist you!

From what you have described it sounds like the heater on your Frigidaire dryer may possibly be loose. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to proceed further.

I have a frigidaire gleq2152es1 that keeps blowing heating elements, what is the cause?


Are you re-stringing the element? if so you need to make sure you have no gaps in the element.

My dryer is ten years old. A few months ago, some of the clothes would come out with rust stains on them. Some of the clothes would get caught in the seams which would cause staining, tearing and...


I would suggest replacing the front drum bearing. Sounds like the gap is now excessive, obviously allowing clothes to get caught up in there. Drum must be removed from the dryer to do this.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Overheating?


The glow is normal, but the sparking may indicate lint back in the heater element compartment, you can check your owners manual for trouble shooting tips.
