Question about Frigidaire Dryers
Have to turn dyer drum then start switch to get it going.
If your bearing,glides, and idler are all fine then your motor is gone.
You could apply some zoomoil to that motor but you will have to drill some access holes as the manufacturer does not provide any. For $150 bucks a pop I would try a $2 bottle of High temp zoomoil from ace hardware first.Use a 1/6th inch drill bit and do not hit the shaft. The bearing wells are on either side of the motor and you will have to take the drum out to get to the motor. To access the dryer innards open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Get the top out yer way and remove the front. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Send me any folding money you find. LOL You may find enough change in the dryer to buy some oil. Zoomoil is use for HVAC. It is heat resistant and does not disapate. After filling each bearing work the motor by hand till it loosens up. Oil the idler check the slides and the rear bearing for wear.

The probable cause is the rollers on the drum are tight or worn out. Pull up or push down on the tub and see idf the resistance is less on one side that the other. Try to go only in the direction of turn thought NOT backwards because that might undo your drum belt. The only way you might be able to tell isundo your belt and try rolling the tub then by hand if your motor will start now it has to be the tub area.
