Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, runs for about 10 minutes then turns off. I also see, that when it turns off, all the lights on the front panel are flashing. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. 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.

-Best Regards-

Try and turn off the main circuit breaker to the unit for a couple of minutes.if this does not reset the machine you may need to replace the control board make sure to check and make sure none of the buttons are stuck.

SOURCE: frigidaire crown gas dryer runs fine but after

From the description you give the most likely cause of this problem are bad gas coils or a bad gas valve.

You say you see the flames for 10 minutes before it stops heating but you don't mention if the igniter is continuing to glow. One thing we need to know is if the igniter continues to cycle on and off when the dryer stops heating.

There is a small square plug on the front panel you can remove to try and visually check if the igniter is glowing.

The problem won't be the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats. Once the fuse is open the dryer won't heat but it won't start to heat after 20 minutes.

After the dryer runs ten minutes and stops heating then check if the igniter is still cycling on and off. This is important because if the igniter is working then the thermostats and igniter are okay.

When the igniter glows at some point you might hear a click and the igniter would stop glowing. The click is from the flame sensor and after the click and the voltage is removed from the igniter at the same instant the voltage is applied to the gas coils and you should get a flame.

You might hear a hum, buzz or vibration from the coils when this happens. If the coils seem to react to the voltage but there is no flame then most likely the gas valve is bad. If the coils don't do anything then most likely the coils are the problem. The gas valve and gas coils can work for 10-15 minutes and then heat up and stop working till everything cools down.

One other thing I must tell you about the gas coils. Here is a link to the gas coils you will need. These are the new style that will last quite a bit longer the the older one. The coils are like the spark plugs in your car. The will need replacing in time due to wear. Below is a video to walk you thru the repair process.

SOURCE: Dryer shuts off after about 10-15 minutes

One possible cause would be the gas dryer radiant sensor. If it senses that the temperature is too hot it will shut off the unit to prevent a fire. Here is a link to the Sears part.

Maytag dryer panel lights are flashing how do I reset


Unplug the machine for a couple of minutes. Let the onboard computer reset itself this way. Plug back in and see if it stops the flashing lights. If unplugging for a couple of minutes does not solve the problem, call a repairman or contact the seller where you bought the machine and ask them what you can do. Hopefully the flashing lights are not an indication of larger problem that only a repairman can fix. Worth a try.

Frigidaire electric dryer (FEQ1442CES) keep flashing and beeping even after cleaning lint filter.


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, keeps beeping and flashing lights. I also see that you have cleaned all the lint out and your appliance will not run more than about 10 seconds. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance, determine what is causing the lights to flash and the beeping, and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful.

Dryer is tumbling but no heat - when I reset it shuts off after about 10 min and the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights are all flashing.


Janet McDonald,

I understand that you are having trouble with your dryer not heating and not running a full cycle and shutting off with the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights flashing. What I suggest is to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle. If it does not complete the cycle and shuts off with the lights flashing, I suggest to either contact the manufacturer or a local appliance technician. This way you will be able to locate the cause of this issue and have it resolved.

Stops and all the lights come on


Instructions
    • 1 Make sure the home's gas supply valve is turned on. Check your Maytag owner's manual to find the location of the dryer's gas shut-off valve. This is usually behind the dryer's front panel or in the back of the unit. Open the valve to allow gas to flow into the dryer.
    • 2 Open the lower front panel of the dryer to access the pilot light assembly. Press and hold the starter button as you light the pilot with a handheld lighter. If you have trouble getting it to light, release the starter button and wait a few minutes before trying it again. Once the pilot is lit, hold the starter button down for another minute to make sure it will stay burning.

    • 3 Close the dryer's front panel and run a test cycle to see if it is producing heat. Call a repairman to evaluate the problem if lighting the pilot did not restore the heat.

I have a zanussi washer dryer zwd12270w and the lights just keep flashing and does nothing else


I would first check your line voltage to make sure its correct. Next I would try unplugging it for 10 minutes. If thats doesnt work I would then look at replacing the control board.

Flame turns on only when dryer is cold, runs for 10 minutes then burner shuts off. The coil glows very bright but the flame does not come on again until dryer has colled way down


The gas valve coils are bad. When they heat up they are losing resistance to stay on.
Turn off the gas. Unplug the machine. Remove the front panel. The gas valve will be in the front right hand corner. Remove the gas valves and replace them with new valves. Please note how the coils orient on the gas valve.
