I have a Frigidaire dryer model number GLGQ2152ES0 that started having troubles a month ago, showing a "DR" error code. Technician came several times and repaired motor, changed thermistor and finally decided to change the control board (expensive). The board he installed has a different part number (original part number 134523200, new board number: 134345100, which I don't find on internet). Now the dryer only works on "low heat" settings. For all other settings, nothing starts and the error "DR" appears. Should I change (once again) the control board? Can it be something else? I've already spent lots of money on this, I'd like to stop the bleeding... thanks

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not stay running. Please check to make sure the door is staying closed. If the door is opening in mid-cycle, then the dryer will stop running. Also, make sure the plug is in the socket tightly. Your dryer could be shaking the plug loose, which could possibly be causing it to stop running. 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.
Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!
I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer not starting. Let's try resetting your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dryer. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, then at this point, you may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. You dryer may either be experiencing a communication error with the main control or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.
Replace the thermostat. A very inexpensive thermocouple that is not sensing the heat anymore and caused the element to overheat. In the UK the part will cost less than five pounds!
If the element had touched the ground, your safety earth leakage breaker in the fuse box would have tripped.
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.
1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is
probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas
valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or
three) if found defective.
Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not
letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.
2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer
overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or
stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the
dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a
meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not
broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a
hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found
Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended
to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually
white in color).
4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
If the dryer runs but does not heat, then there are many reasons why this may happen. Remove the vent line from the rear of the dryer and see if it gets hot. if so you need to unclog the vent line. If it does not then you have a bad thermostat .
