Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer will not spin...

The panel lights up but most of the time when I hit start nothing happens. Occasionally you can hear the motor strain for a few seconds and then nothing. I can not move the drum that contains the cloths either. Seems stuck. Anyone have any ideas?

During this cases, you may need to open up the panel to gain access to the internals and check which parts are stuck. I am thinking that the belt may be loose or needs replacement you can check that as well while at it.

Here is a link on how to replace it. Belt

If inspections does not show that the belt has issues it could be the motor. If you have a tester, see if there is voltage running to it or check if there is resistance. If the resistance measured is infinity, even when turning the motor then it could be bad.

For pieces that are stuck, a physical inspection should show, Check for cracks or parts that are rubbing against each other.

Model FEQ1442ES0. I press the start button and all I hear is a click, nothing happens. What's wrong?


I appreciate your inquiry, Cody!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is not operating after you hit the start button and it clicks. It is possible that your control panel or wiring harness could be causing this issue with your dryer. You may need to perform a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dryer for at least ten minutes. If this does not correct your issue I would seek assistance from a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

GE Profile Dryer will Not Spin


I opened the dryer panel and saw that one of the two belts that stabilize the drum had come off. It is a soft, sticky, rubbery substance and part of it and balled up so it was wedged between the drum and the dryer wall. I cut that portion off and it runs fine now.
