If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down

GLEQ2152ES0 dryer stops after ten minutes and then blinking lights on the right of the side panel. The lights that blink simultaneously.


The dryer is telling you what is wrong with it. Count the number of flashes the drying, cooldown, pressaver and clean filter light are flashing then count the number of times the control/start light is flashing. That will give you the error code number.

I would replace parts. It still is cheaper than a new unit. So get the new control panel and do it yourself and save money. The average life of a dyer is dependant only on when the owner gives up. I just serviced on last week that was 25 years old.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.


Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

My right signal doesn't blink but the bulb lights are on


If the left signal light is affected as well then the flasher can is faulty.
The flasher can is located under the dash.

2004 camry ac light blinking and throws hot air. Suggestions?


My 2003 Toyota Camry AC often starts blowing hot air and the AC light starts blinking. I don't know why the following process works, but it does. Using the temp selector (left) reduce the temperature all the way down to Max Cold and then push the Auto button. It will start blowing out very cold air. After a little while push the temp selector to the desired temperature.

The Right Turn Signal comes on, but doesn't blink on my 95 Buick Park Ave. I have a State Inspection coming up and need to get it fixed by this weekend.


It sounds like one of the signal lights is out. The best way to find out is to turn the hazards on and check if they blink. If they do then you might need a turn signal relay.

Good Luck
