You may have broken the drive belt which is easily replaced. No need to buy a new dryer.

Why does my frigidaire leq332ds0 sound like it's overloaded when it's not?


Good Morning Nikki,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# LEQ332DS0, is squealing like it's overloaded, even after replacing the belt. There could be a number of possibilities that could be causing your appliance to squeal. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your dryer and determine what is causing your appliance to squeal. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My GE spacemaker washer is blinking and will not work


I have a he gtup270emww washer used very little. The washer was overloaded and quit working full of heavy wet clothes and water. The washer agitator does not operate. The water does not drain.

The light blinks. I have un plugged the washer to reset the motor and lifted and closed the lid 7 times. I drained the water by hand.

When I try to operate the washer, it adds water for 30 seconds, the water shots off and the green light blinks.

What is the fix?

Frigidaire electric dryer model gleq2152es1 lights wont turn on and wont do anything


Hi ana piedranayari05, this is AP! Thank you for your post

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire electric dryer not turning on. Make sure the dryer is still plugged into the outlet, and plugged in correctly. Also check to see if the house fuse is blown or circuit breaker tripped? If so, Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker. Check to make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. Have a licensed electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself. Additionally, the thermal limiter could have tripped or possibly an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation. A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault. If you have check the plug, fuses, and circuit breaker and still no power I would recommend contacting a local technician to diagnose and service your electric dryer.

Washer won't spin


Try a different spin cycle on another setting if it still doest work try removeing the clothes and changing it to a normal wash cycle. If no try unplugging it for a minute or 2 and then back in hopefully it resets and if still no movement on the unit at all you may have overloaded it causing the motor to wear prematuraly and burn up. This is very common with overloading.
