The dryer part of my stacked washer/dryer will not come on. Yesterday evening I set a load to dry, assuming that it would shut off when it was done like it always has. When I woke up this morning the dryer was still running! I removed the load and tried to start it again - nothing happened. I flipped the breaker and it came on. Started another load and came back to check it in an hour, dryer had cut off again. Tried to restart but nothing happened. Flipped the breaker switch again and it came on. I'm guessing it is some sort of electrical problem but the same breaker switch controls my washer (which is fine) and the light in the laundry room (also fine). Any ideas?

Assuming that you've installed the stack kit according to instructions, you should check the following:
1. The dryer should be securely attached to the washer and not wiggle or move. The washer must always go on the bottom of the stack.
2. Washer should be level and have all four level legs making solid contact with the floor, no wobbling.
3. Make sure the drain hose is not pinched or restricted (or there is not debris in the drain pump) as a slow pump out will accentuate vibration problems.
4. Make certain you've removed all of the washer packing bolts before using the machine (see owners manual for description.)
5. The floor must be solid with no "springy" or "spongy" feel. No matter what you do to the laundry set it will vibrate on a less than solid floor. This occurs on upstairs installations or other wooden floors, especially in an older home. Sometime the floor can be braced to stiffen it. Also, vibration pads are sold that might help minimize the vibration. The walking is a symptom of vibration.
Experience shows that most problems of this sort result from incorrect installation and/or flooring issues, not the laundry. You should not attach it to the wall. It is possible the washer has a problem in which case a technician would need to check the unit. They can check the suspension and drive system for proper operation.
You said, You have a gas stacked frigidaire dryer and washer. I assume the motor
has gone because one you push the start button the drum does not turn.
How do you get to the motor to replace. Does the top and back come off
and how do you do it. alan
Below I will paste the site that will have the repair diagrams needed for you to see how to replace the motor if you choose to!
Find the diagram "#5 Dry MTR ,BELT" When you click the page and it opens inthe upper right corner it will say,Open This Diagram in a New Window.The motor is #28 in the Diagram.

Let me know how it goes for you! Huuum, Please remember to leave a rating. I believe I solved your request!
I assume you used the kit for stacking and removing the top of the washer and installing the plates?
You might need some sticky rubber pads to stop metal to metal contact and some duct tape around the vent exiting the dryer where it meets its back panel. This is common, you could go specific or browse ace hardware and find a compatible source.
To make sure it is a vent problem ,Do one load without the vent hose attaching to the wall ,keep in mind that it may blow out some dust, you may want to cover the end of vent hose with a nylon stocking for just this ONE time.Now run this 1 cycle on a timed dry cycle at the highest mark...60, 70,etc.If the clothes are dry at the final stopping point than you know your vent is blocked.Or you pinched the vent hose closed.It only takes a small blockage to create alot of waiting time for dryer to end its cycle.The faster the air can get out of the dryer the faster it dries.
