Question about Frigidaire FGQ1442ES Gas Dryer
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.
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

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.
