Question about Frigidaire GLGQ2152ES Gas Dryer
Works as far as drying clothes,just will not stop spinning and all lights are off
Good Morning Jeff,
I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLGQ2152ES, to stop spinning, even though all the lights are off. It could possibly be the different boards and sensors miscommunicating with each other. I suggest giving the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. When you turn the power back on, if the dryer is still spinning, without you wanting it to, I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

1. Gas valve coilsIgniter 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 defective.
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.

SOURCE: Clothes Dryer Break Down
Check your dryer vent and lint collection area for clogs, make sure there is no kinks in the dryer hose and the one way vent outside your house is not blocked. Your dryer is overheating and shutting down due to a thermal fuse that is on a timer and takes while to reset.

Sounds as if something has the tub locked. Remove the top of dryer so you can get look at the tub. You may have to remove the tub to locate the problem.

hey first make sure the timer knob is set on drying cycle and not off ( know it might sound stupid but people forget sometimes) and if its making that noise the humming it means you need a new motor 100% sure its not easy to do if you have never done it before

My dryer does the same thing. Additionally, it is not heating what so ever. Clothes are cool and damp, and heating vents at back of dryer are cold to the touch.
