Frigidaire front load elecrtric dryer runs but no heat

Hello and Thank You for helping me. I have a frigidaire GLEQ942CS Electric dryer. My dryer runs but will not heat. I know a little about electricity and I did some tests. I have 240v at the plug, and at the terminals at the back of dryer.I did an ohm test to the elements got continuity there. I tested what I believe to be a thermocouple that is attached to the shroud around the elements and had continuity there. There was another I believe to be a sensor bolted to the very back of the dryer, not on the element shroud it has two red wires hocked to it I had continuity there also. Now the yellow wire that comes off one side of the elements goes down to a terminal block on the motor there fells like theres something on the back side of the terminal block, but I was not able to test any of this.So we plugged the dryer in and turned the dryer on. as we were changing the settings on the front control panel there was a set of selections at the far right. I believe they were somthing press and no heat. We can get the somthing press led to light , but we could not get the no heat led to light up. Thats all I have I hope its enough info for you to help me.

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Frigidare affinity stactable front loading dryer. runs for 10 to 15 seconds then shuts off. plenty of exhaust air. it has heat inside. tried resetting to factory specs but still have the same problem


Good Morning Percy, thank you for your inquiry!

From the information you have provided you Frigidaire dryer runs for 10 to 15 seconds and then will shut off. It sounds like it could be a possible problem with your thermostat or control panel. A reset may help with any internal miscommunications inside of your dryer. You can reset your dryer by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help your issue I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform an accurate diagnosis on your dryer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Frigidaire Affinity AEQ6700FSO electric dryer does not heat, then shuts off within 10 minutes.


Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

No heat


Check your breaker box, or fuses. A dryer will run but not heat if one fuse is bad.

Front load dryer


Remove the front panel to get to it. Once you get the front panel off it is easy to remove the drum and replace the element. First remove the top then the front then you have it.
