Hello Valinda;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are several low cost components that are preventing your dryer from starting.

It could be a bad door switch, bad thermal fuse, bad thermostat or a bad motor pulley starter switch.

I will help you, but I need your model number so I can see exactly what you have.

I have a frigidaire affinity dryer and when I try to plug it in it trips breaker immediately

Hey Robert, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer is tripping your circuit once it has been plugged in. This could be a possible issue with your power or the in home circuit. You may need to have an electrician out to review your in home circuit to assure that everything is operating properly. Hopefully this will help correct your problem. -Matt

Why wont my dryer stay running?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not stay running. Please check to make sure the door is staying closed. If the door is opening in mid-cycle, then the dryer will stop running. Also, make sure the plug is in the socket tightly. Your dryer could be shaking the plug loose, which could possibly be causing it to stop running. 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-

My frigidaire gas dryer will not heat

Good Morning Margie,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire gas dryer heating. I also see that the vent is plugged. You definitely do not want that vent plugged. Your dryer needs proper ventilation in order for it to work correctly. The reason it might not be heating is due to the fact that that vent is plugged and is not getting enough ventilation. Unplug that vent, make sure that there is gas going to the appliance, and that the gas supply valve is open.

Good Afternoon James,

I understand that you rebuilt your Frigidaire dryer, found that you didn't plug in the light wire and it sparked. Now the dryer won't go. From this point, I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your dryer and see what is causing your appliance to not go. Hope this is helpful.

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Dryer Won't Power UP

IF you find that you have only a 3 wire feed for this dryer (and the reason for the 3 prong receptacle)...then you can not properly install a 4 prong dryer cord to it. You now have 2 choices....either rewire (assuming that it is a 3 wire supply) the entire run from the dryer breaker to the outlet location with 4 wire (typically a run of 8/3 with ground having a black, red, white and bare ground)and install a 4 prong dryer receptacle to match the configuration of the new dryers cord.....OR - you can remove the 4 wire cord and replace it with a 3 wire the ground strap - IF it is still in place.
