Re: dryer

There should be a removable kickplate found at the bottom of the dryer. Remove this kickplate by removing the two screws found at the bottom. Let the kickplate drop down just a little to disengage the two pins found on its top.
If your dryer has an enamelled top, you can raise it by releasing the two spring catches found under it. Use a putty knife (or some other thin and flat object) to push in on and disengage each catch.
Remove the two screws (some models will have four) that secure the bottom of the front panel. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
If your dryer has a galvanized top, remove the screws from the front panel, and then remove the front panel itself. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
Thats all you should gain access to the heating coil..

Frigidaire affinity dryer not heating up after replacing the heating element. It will heat up for a minute then goes cold but dryer keeps spinning.

did the original element bad? you probably replace the wrong part for the problem. check your coils, there's two of them right in front of the element.

Frigidaire FEQ332ES-It starts out ok, then trips the breaker, then no heat, continues to run but only blows cold air

sounds like your heat coil element is shorted, this coil is in the inside behind the drum..

replace coil and this will solve your problem, the coils break , you get no heat but voltage goes to heat elem that is shorted, trips breaker

My Fridigidaire gasdryer will heat up for the first part of cycle

It sounds like the coil valves are not continuing to open.

If you can get the dryer open, (unit UNPLUGGED of course) you will see that the gas valve has two black cylinders on top of it with wires coming out. Electricity magnetizes these and that magnet is what opens the gas valve so that the dryer can heat. When they get old, the electricity starts to heat them up, and they stop working. You end up with a dryer that will heat up for the first 2 minutes of a load, and then stop heating.

The coils are very easy to replace, and are usually held in with a small bent metal plate and two phillips screws. Removing this plate and the coils doesn't interfere with the gas plumbing, but if turning the gas off makes you feel better, go ahead.

I'm not sure if those are the ones for your model or not, but that is what they will look like. Check the model number on the sticker inside the door to make sure you get the right ones. Be sure to get the kit of 2.

Changing heating element

No need to buy the whole pan. The replacement coil is way less. 5300622032
Very easy dryer to repair. Start by popping the top and then removing the front. Get te drum out and remove the heater assembly. Remove the old coil. NOTE: when replacing the new coil be vewy vewy careful not to stretch the coil too much as this causes a hot spot and shortens the life of the coil considerably as in like one load maybe. LOL.

Frigidaire dryer heats but clothes not drying

A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.

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.
