Why Frigidaire gas dryer will not start? makes humming noise

Rodney, if the humming noise sounds like your motor is running but the drum does not turn you probably have a broken belt.

Why does my dryer not start, but the washer is fine?

Hello Jennifer Christie, thank you for your post!

I see that you have replaced the belt and bearing drum in your Frigidaire dryer but the unit does not start. It sounds like you could be experiencing an issue within the motor or timer. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair your appliance, to avoid any further unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Dryer will not start

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not start. I also see that when you press the start button, the lights above the Control button blink and your dryer beeps. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try running any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Humming noise and doesn't run

More than likely the belt has slipped off and the noise you hear is the motor running without the belt. It is not a tough fix mentally, but it can be quite a difficult do-it-yourself task. Good luck.

I press the start button and hear an electric humming noise and the drum does not turn.

unscrew the rear panel of the dryer,
You will most likeley find the rubber drive belt broken and wrapped around the drum or motor.
if so
Take your make and model details to your local parts dealer and pick up a new belt, for a few $
like a fan belt it installs snaked around the drum, motor, and backwards around a tensioner
