Frigidaire electric dryer model gleq2152es1 lights wont turn on and wont do anything


Hi ana piedranayari05, this is AP! Thank you for your post

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire electric dryer not turning on. Make sure the dryer is still plugged into the outlet, and plugged in correctly. Also check to see if the house fuse is blown or circuit breaker tripped? If so, Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker. Check to make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. Have a licensed electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself. Additionally, the thermal limiter could have tripped or possibly an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation. A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault. If you have check the plug, fuses, and circuit breaker and still no power I would recommend contacting a local technician to diagnose and service your electric dryer.

I have had my whirlpool dryer about 4yrs + (geq9800pw2) has always worked fine. Last week it started tripping ckt breaker toward the end of drying cycle. As of this morning, it blows ckt breaker...


leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).

Runs fine no heat


if its a 220 electric dryer, check both legs of power coming into it. power only to one side of the plug will cause this problem. check the power at the breaker if plug doesnt have 220. breakers do go bad.. if the dryer is older than it could be that the motor is running to slow and letting the heating elements get to warm and kicking out the bimetal relays. the relays will only do this for so many times and then they will stop working . if you have the dryer apart ,the relays are round and usually have just 2 wires going to them. held in with two screws. if you ohm this out it should have resistance ,if none than its no good. could also be heating elements themselves.. you can usually just check them for continuity...

Dryer wont turn on. Breaker in breaker box is fine. No light inside dryer. What's wrong?


Dryers run off 220v, and sometimes only one leg of the breaker trips. So you need to flip the breaker all the way off, and then back on. Sometimes the breaker feels off but is not fully reset. Make sure you completely trip it off then back on. Does the dryer light work now? Is there any indication that it's getting some power? If the breaker is fine and your still not getting power, then the next step is to make sure you have power coming to the plug behind the dryer. At this point you should only continue if your comfortable working with electricity. Once you move the dryer you can check the outlet with a meter, or other circuit tester. If you got power here, then you'll need to start checking things on the dryer. you can remove the plate where the cord goes into the dryer and look for loose or burnt wiring there. If that looks ok, then you'll need to start taking the dryer apart; front panel, top, back, etc, as needed to access the wiring and controls. From here you can trace the wiring from the supply to the controls and to the motor, etc. look for anything burn, If nothing looks out of place you can start checking temp sensors, or fusable links. If this is above your head, then stop where your not comfortable and have checked by a service technician.

Model WED5300SQ0 not heating and timer not working


Well with moving it around and all it could have any number of things happened. If it wont tumble, no lights, no heat or anything check that the plug has 240volts to it. then check the wiring going into the dryer may have broke wires or anything like that. but I would check the plug first if it has no power what so ever. If you check the plug and it doesn't have power check the breaker to see if it is tripped.

Ge dryer model# dvl223


This may sound silly but did you check (or have the means to check) for voltage at the outlet? The absolute bottom line is that if there is no power.......you get the rest.
