Question about Frigidaire FEQ1442ES Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer died A long wire was in my laundry and got caught in the holes at the back of the drum. The machine eventually made a horrible rumble and tripped the breaker. I flipped the breaker, removed the wire. It would tumble but no heat and maybe no blower. Eventually the breaker tripped again. I have the front off and don't know where to proceed- can I do something besides call a Professional? I am relatively broke...:)

Yes un hook the belt stand at the side of the drier grab the belt with one hand and the front of the drum with the other and kinda give a quick jerk up this should disengage the drum but be careful as stamped sheet metal is sharp it don't take much to get the drum loose then pull the drum out of the front of the drier behind it you will see the heater pan and you will find the wire shorted the heating element (by the way that was a underwear from a bra ) go to the appliance parts store and you can just replace the coil don't need the whole pan just follow the instructions in the kit a tip when you take the old coil off after unplugging the wires off grab the old coils as close to the cermanic block and bend them back and forth to break the ends when you put the new one on don't stretch it just insert one tab in the cermanic block bend the retaining tab one will do take the coil around putting it on its insulators it will fit no need to stretch then put some lithium hi temp grease in the rear bearing before reassembling the drum while your in there check the rear bearing for wear can get a kit for that too dont forget to rate me every time some one does that it lowers my ratings and i have to stop answering people

Sounds like what you said. Time for a motor. The motor has an internal overload and will shut the machine off if the motor runs hot.
Good Luck

Horrible rumbling from back of drum. I have dissconnected all the pipes and power lead and removed the top. When i spin the drum by hand there is a horrible rumbling from what seems to be the back where...


roy, it sounds like the bearings are completly worn out. Its not an easy repair and if you decide to repair it leave it to the service tech.

to fix this properly a full new back section and shaft is needed which can be pricey but if your machine is under 5 years aprox £100 will fix it through the hotpoint parts warenty.

if over 5years aprox £140 will fix it again through hotpoint.

hope this helps you out

The dryer works, but now it makes a horribly loud rumbling noise. No squeaking or grinding - just loud!


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

My dryer makes a scraping noise when the bowl


UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

You may have two problems:
1...The felt seal around the door is faulty,broken, or out of place.This will cause the problem of zippers,buttons, etc. to get caught between the door and the drum
2...Drum rollers, this causes squeaks,and thump type of noises.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication and the felt seal between the door and drum maybe faulty.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt,and felt seal.
Check your felt seal at this time to see if you can reinstall it or you may have to replace it.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise and the problem of getting clothes caught in between the door and drum.

My dryer is making a horrid noise


belt would squeak. but a horrible noise would probably be coming from the gear box. it may need a simple lubrication to the worst of replacing the whole gear box.

check it underneath the tub. if you can remove the housing and run it while it is open and see or hear where the noise is coming from. be careful on the moving parts once it is running with out a housing.

tnx 4 using fixya,

YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
