It sounds like the fuse inside the dryer has blown. This caused by a plugged or resrticted exhaust vent. Take the back off the dryer and next to the air vent there will be a white fuse with 2 terminals. You can test this with an ohm meter. The part is around 20 bucks and it should fix your problem.

Model FEQ1442ES0. I press the start button and all I hear is a click, nothing happens. What's wrong?


I appreciate your inquiry, Cody!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is not operating after you hit the start button and it clicks. It is possible that your control panel or wiring harness could be causing this issue with your dryer. You may need to perform a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dryer for at least ten minutes. If this does not correct your issue I would seek assistance from a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Hi. My Bosch WTL 5500 wont start. It has power and filters are clean. When you push start the dry light comes on and nothing happens. Any ideas?


there is a thermal reset button at the back of the unit on the heating element. to get to it you have to remove the back panel that covers the heating element. (its the panel that sticks out). Once that panel is removed you will see the red thermal reset button. press it so it clicks, then start unit. Let me know what happens.

Dryer will not dry - drum will not turn


Just happened to mine also. The problem was that the Idler Pulley came loose from the drive belt. There is a switch on the idler pulley so that if there is no tension on it, the motor will not start and you will have the symptoms you describe. To reattach the Idler Pulley, remove the back plate surrounding the dryer exhaust. This will give you access to the Pulley. If the belt broke (unlikely with a new dryer such as yours), the fix is more involved. This dryer is the same as the Maytag MDE6700 - you can do a search for a service manual for that model and you can see the details. Hope this helps.

Nothing happens when I push the start button on my Gas Dryer


Three things you can check the door switch is it clicking? The thermal fuse you want to make sure there is continuity or worse case would be your motor.
