Frigidaire FEX831CS, dryer not heating...

Frigidaire FEX831CS, dryer is not heating anymore. It tumbles, but is not heating... we've only had it about 2.5 years, bought brand new. How do I get to the heating element to see if that's the problem... and if I can get to it, is my search pointless because I think I read that the heating element for this machine is no longer made? Please help... we don't have any money to get a repairman... thank you in advance for your response.

That could be your high limit switch. Unplug dryer and gently pry on tops left and right corners, Try not to scratch your paint on corners. You lift top up and lean and lay it back so its against the wall behind it. Near back you will see the high limit on the right side rear. Need to check continuity by taking one of the wires off and use a multimeter to see if circuit is open, if so it will need replaced. I have the repair manual if I can help you, Thanks Sea Breeze High Limit here

Makes a ticking or clicking noise when dryer is on. How can I fix it? The heat and tumbler still works though.


Hi Lisa, thank you for your post!

Based on the above-listed model number, FEX831CS it shows you have a Frigidaire laundry center. However, you mentioned that it is a gallery series. So do you have a laundry center or a Frigidaire gallery dryer? In order to better address the issue, what is your model number? You can typically locate the serial tag, which lists your model number, on the right or left edge on the inside of the door. How often do you hear the ticking or clicking noise? With this information I can better assist you. Thank you!

Dryer will not stop running


Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

Need belt for stackable frigidaire washer and dryer. Model is FEX831CS The washer jerked and threw a breaker. Now the dryer won't work and the washer lets water run in and the inside starts jerking hard


If you think that the washing machine belt is the cause of your troubles you can find it in the very bottom of the machine (behind the front panel)
Would need more info on the dryer problem, (Is it running with no heat or not running at all)
the washer drive belt is the only easy fix on this model.
Good Luck
