Good Afternoon Frankie, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dryer is not starting and will only beep three times. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or sensor. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for at least ten minutes. You may also want to check your household circuit and assure that the breaker did not flip or that the circuit has not shorted. If that all appears to be in proper working order then I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

I was unable to locate a similar complaint through my service database, so this is going to be a hit or a miss answer.
This model has an electronic control board in it and it is possibly picking up a static discharge from your body and powering up the start relay. This may be due to improper grounding or a recent power issue. This type of failure apparently does not happen with a 240 volt appliance often enough to be in the books. I might suggest that you unplug the dryer for 10 minutes, then plug it back in to see if it corrects the problem. If not, you will want to have your outlet inspected by an electrician. You may also have to replace the control board, if the electrician finds the outlet satisfactory. You may also just want to consult a factory authorized servicer that would be capable of checking the outlet AND testing the board before replacing it.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

Inside, the drum rides on rollers that support it. The bearings fail and will squeak. The noisy one will have to be replaced. You will have to open it up and try to locate the noisy one.

Frigidaire FEQ1442CESO wont stop beeping

Mine did the same thing. It started right after the warranty ran out. I dealt with it for a long time until 1 day it wouldn't stop running. I saw a couple internet posts about defective circuit boards in this model so I got brave and took mine apart. Once I got the board out and examined it I found 7 or 8 cracked solder joints, including the main power supply to the board. I reheated them with a soldering iron and added a little bit more solder to a couple of them and now my dryer works like the day it was new.

Dryer beeping three times and lights flash, dryer will not start

I have this problem too, I have noticed that when this happens the moisture is high within the dryer. Usually when I open the door and let the steam out and let the dryer cool a bit it stops, but would still like to know why it really is doing this.

Frigidaire FEQ1442ES dryer beeping three times and flashing lights. How do I stop it. Have removed and cleaned lint screen and the cage.

I have the same problem with the same dryer, but don't know why either. I was reading on one posting that a button might be stuck so the dryer thinks the button is constantly being pressed.
