Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Wire Scraping sound and sparks inside rear dryer drum area.

I purchased a Frigidaire Gallery Series electric Washer/Dryer Combo 4 months ago. The dryer model # is GLEQ2152ES1. When I turn the dryer on, I hear a wire scraping sound coming from the drum. When I look through the glass fron loading door, I can see electrical sparks in the back of the drum. Could this be the electrical heater coil broken or what?

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

Why wont my dryer stay running?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not stay running. Please check to make sure the door is staying closed. If the door is opening in mid-cycle, then the dryer will stop running. Also, make sure the plug is in the socket tightly. Your dryer could be shaking the plug loose, which could possibly be causing it to stop running. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

It is located on the rear bulkhead upper right hand corner. Ti access it you pop the top with a putty knife and remove the front panel. Get the drum out. I recently worked on one and did a video:

Dryer problem


Your dryer drum front support glides and rear drum bearing needs to be replaced, parts are not expensive but labor to do the job may be $50 to $100 dollars.
You should call Frigidaire customer help line just to gather some info from them. 1-800-FRIGIDAIRE
Good luck !

GLEQ2152ES0 - Frigidaire Gallery series electric dryer. Has started squeaking rather loudly about 60% of the time while drying. What could be causing this?


Inside, the drum rides on rollers that support it. The bearings fail and will squeak. The noisy one will have to be replaced. You will have to open it up and try to locate the noisy one.

The dryer squeals (metallic sound) while drying clothes.


check wear pads around front of drum or rear depending on brand. Ge's are particularly prone to scraping sounds, but still one of my preferred brands. IF a ge, did it get any dents around the sides or back? The drum is close to the sides and a dent in right place will do it. Also the rear panel can push the drum forward rubbing in front.
Ge - wear strips in front, plastic bearing in rear center, replace both, inexpensive.
Whirlpool- felt pad and wear strip in front, felt seal in rear with roller support. check rear seal lube rollers
Maytag -roller in front and rear with front and rear felt seals. some designs have front drum support posts with wear pads. ck these.
Frigidaire (include some sold under GE name) rear bearing cup (plastic)-lube, front feltpad with wear plates if plates gone get new pad/wearplate asm.
Maytag and ge nomenclature tags are in rear .
