Question about Frigidaire GLEQ642A Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Frigidaire dryer a few minutes ago, my dryer decided it won't turn on! I've been using today and it was drying just fine....but pushing the start button now gives me nothing. If I put my ear down to the button and listen I can hear something barely buzzing, but I've checked everything, breakers, plug is fine, it's on the right setting, (I've tried several) and no turning's about 8 years old...any ideas?

Re: frigidaire dryer

There is a switch under the lid,Look for a slot onder where the lid rests on the dryer,there is an actuator under there where the dryer lid when shut should avtivate,this switch is either bent out of place,or the little pin that hits it when shut is missing or broke off.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.

Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

Aeq6000 won't turn off

This has to do with the control board failure. The control board runs every aspect of the dryer and will need to be replaced. Here is the new control board.

Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that

I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

Just to verify does it also beep six times? This model has the actual pushbuttons. Press all buttons lightly and see if any release. Disengage button.
