Reach inside the drum and feel the drum inserts to see if one of those has come loose. Sometimes you can have one of those screws back out and hit something on the inside. Could also be a bent drum (doubtful unless its been overloaded or abused real bad) a front slide is bad (would probably cause squeeking or grinding noise) or rear bering (also should squeek or grind). Good Luck!!! Jim

Hit the start button, all the lights come on, but it doesn't go on....tried unplugging it...and sometimes it works....or letting it sit a while may let it work....what is the problem?

Re: Frigidaire Front Load Dryer

Have had the same problem with mine and it eats everything that has a small sting. It clunks when it starts eating. Peal the panties or sweat strings back out of the fron of the drum and it quiets down...Now, without warning, it locked up solid. This dryer is 2 years old. Extremely disappointed in this product at this point.

Dryer is very loud and only runs for 5-15 minutes

That to me sound like bad front glides. I recently worked on a Westinghouse dry like your with more troubles than a squirrel on an 8 lane highway. That video and more is on my Frigidaire dryer repair page

The dryer sounds like an unbalanced washer. Sound is coming from the front top left side. Machine diesn't move. does it even when empty. Began after was on for about 10 minutes.

Possible bad bearing for the drum front or maybe a drive belt with a missing segment that thumps with every revolution. You will need to open the top to inspect--either screws in the back edge of the top or insert a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring catch on each side. Hope this helps!

My dryer -model FER311F makes a thumping noise while in use.

Check the 4 feet & make sure top of of appliance is level. These 4 feet will have threaded adjustments, just tilt the dryer back and should be able to turn with your hand or may require pliers, good luck.

Front load dryer

Remove the front panel to get to it. Once you get the front panel off it is easy to remove the drum and replace the element. First remove the top then the front then you have it.
