Most likely the belt has slipped off the drum. It might have also worn out. The process to repair it is a pain. You did not post the make and model but if there is a kick panel under the door you can remove that easily to check the belt. Unplug the machine and remove the screws that hold the panel. They are under the bottom edge. Take the panel off and get a vacuum cleaner and clean out all the lint. Use a light to see the belt and the motor. You can use your hand to turn the drum and see if the motor turns or you can check it by close inspection. If the belt is off the pulley you have to take the whole top of the dryer off to get to it. Check the back for screws and remove any that hold the top on. The top lifts off of the unit and it make take some serious pulling to get it loose. You can then see into and around the drum.

Have a affinity front load dryer that comes on runs five min then shuts off and all three lights by the start button come on and flash wont heat up


Hi Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your inquiry!

I interpret that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer (FASE7073NW) not starting. Let's try resetting your dryer by flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is necessary to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dryer. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, I have identified that it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dryer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. Best regards!

Why when i push the start button on my dryer and it tries to start spinning the drum but doesnt. sounds like doesnt want to start spinning


There is a belt on the drum that can break or come off the pulleys. You can access it by checking for screws that hold the whole top of the drier down. If there are none, pry up the top with your hands by lifting. You will be able to see the whole inside of the drier. If you are going to be reaching into the machine, unplug it first.

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause


Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

Washer only start when drier is on.


Hello Reinaldo Rivera - From what you have described the unit seems to either have a communication problem with the control, an issue with the wiring harness or a faulty door switch. Try resetting the unit by flipping the household circuit breaker or unplugging. Wait approximately two minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and if issue continues then I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

I have a affinity dryer that just humms when I turn it on. I have power 220 at recpt. no code reading?


Sounds like the motor could be locked up, Is the dryer turning if not belt broke , Check belt, take the front access plate where the motor is located and turn it on check to see if the shaft of the motor is turning at normal speed and again check the belt, with power off and belt is not broken by hand turn the drum to make sure nothing is blocking it from spinning freely. if that is free and clear than my bet is on the motor itself as it sounds like it is in locked rotor.
Cause's of locked rotor
Motor seen its better days
if equipped the start/run capacitor could be out
Hope this helps.

Have a Frigidaire Gallery Series front loading dryer and it keeps giving me an error(?) code, E68. When I start the dryer, it runs for a couple of minutes and then It starts beeping and flashing this code...


Sorry to read about your problem. this should be your E68 problem

You have a defective button on the control board.
The best thing to do is go into the diagnostic mode.
Turn the dial to Normal. Press and hold the Select and Pause/Cancel keys for 6 seconds, or until the Drying/Cool Down/Press Saver/Clean Lint Filter lights come on.
Then press the Start and Pause/Cancel Buttons 4 seconds. This puts you into the diagnostic mode to check the keys. Now, turn the dial 4 O'clock position, or 75. This will allow you to check all your buttons. As you press each key, it will light all the lights above it. When you press a key and it does nothing or the lights above any certain key stays on without pushing it, this button is stuck. If you can't clear it, you probably have to replace the control board.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

Frigidaire Front Load Dryer


Reach inside the drum and feel the drum inserts to see if one of those has come loose. Sometimes you can have one of those screws back out and hit something on the inside. Could also be a bent drum (doubtful unless its been overloaded or abused real bad) a front slide is bad (would probably cause squeeking or grinding noise) or rear bering (also should squeek or grind). Good Luck!!! Jim
