Question about Frigidaire FGQ1442ES Gas Dryer

2 Answers

Fridgidaire Dryer runs constantly when plugged in

I have a Fridgidaire model fgq1442es1,
When my dryer is plugged and the door is closed, the drum constanly spins as if the dryer is on. (no heat though). Then, when we start a cycle, it heats as normal and works fine, but when the cycle is done, the heat just shuts off but it keeps running.
When I open the door, it stops as normal. I have unplugged the dryer several times (overnight as well) when I plug it back in, same thing.
Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the input. I found out that Frigidaire will pay for the repair. No cost to me. So they are coming Tuesday to take care of it. Was still under warranty to my surprise.



    Thanks all!

You have a couple different options. One is to check the timer and make sure that it is working correctly. Second thing is to check the computer and the fusees to make sure all is well.

It has to do with the onboard timer or timer board

Does not turn off when door is open


The image below shows the wiring diagram for your model of dryer. The door switch is shown in the closed position. When the door is opened, the contact is broken that completes the neutral circuit through the door switch. (I am not showing that your model of dryer has a drum light. If it did, then the drum light would illuminate when the door is opened.)

Based on your symptom, a bad door switch is apparently causing this problem. It is not breaking the neutral circuit to stop the motor from running. Replacing the door switch assembly should fix this problem. NOTE: Be sure to unplug the dryer before accessing any internal components.

Fridgidaire dryer aeq6000es. won't start, beeps 3 times with error message dr


Hello
This code means the dryer door is not closed or the door safety switch is not making a good connection at times. The dryer door safety switch is in the opening of the door and when the door is closed the switch button is depressed. If the control circuit board doesn't get a signal that the dryer door switch is closed it will not allow the dryer to start.. Try firmly closing the dryer door a 2nd time when this happens, if that cures the problem you are good to go, if that doesn't cure the issue you must remove the front panel of the dryer and replace the switch. If you need a switch they are available from Sears Direct for about $15.00 Below is a picture of the switch that most likely used in your model and make, the button on top is what the dryer door depresses when closed..

Wont start door shut tight can heat timer drum lite on when door open


If you can hear the motor running with door is closed and the dryer is turned on, the the belt that turns the drum is likely off the drum or broken.

If you cannot hear the anything when the door is closed and the dryer is turned on, then the door switch is likely defective.

The other more unlikely causes are either the Timer or Switch that starts the dryer is defective.

Dryer drum will not turn


The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Ge dryer model #DHDSR46EE1WW. Dryer will not run- just makes loud humming noise. Replaced the start switch and it still will not run at all. PLEASE HELP!


You most likely have a bad motor. Try to spin the dryer drum by hand with the door open, door swich held or taped down, and while pressing start. This will likely get the motor going. If this works try closing the door and starting it again. If it works now the motor may have just had a hard time starting do to it's position or the drum's postition. If it only works when you help it out manually you have a bad motor or maybe a sticky drum/jammed belt/etc. Good luck!

My Eaton Viking Dryer Model # ED214W449 was running, I heard a loud bang and realized the drum had stopped turning and won't restart. Is this a drum belt issue? Is it hard to repair myself. Where can I get the part for this. Thank you.

Fridgidaire dryer


In dryers, the small clothes can get caught in one of the drum seals and make a scrapping noise, ( remove power, grab a flash light and have a peek inside through the door opening ) or the cloth can actually pass through one of the heating duct holes at the back of the drum and touch something electrical like the heating element, thermostats and so the noise comming.
