Check the house electrical panel to see if there are tripped double-circuit breakers. If so, push it off, then back on. If it trips again when trying the dryer, there could be a wiring short within the dryer itself--usually the heating element.

It could be the door safety interlock switch. Remove the switch short the two wires and press start. If it works remove the short to stop the dryer and order a switch. If you have an Ohm Meter you can test the function of the switch without shorting the switch.

My dryer wont stop running


Good Morning Daniela,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity gas dryer to stop running. It sounds to me like there could be something going on with the actual control panel on your appliance. It could also be something to do with the door latching mechanism. I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician to be sure that is what is causing the issue.

-Best Regards-

Dryer makes a loud noise then stops


If it stops running when hot it may be the motor. The belt or drum rollers would not stop it from running.
