Ne Frigidaire front load dryer AEQ7000E1 - drum won't turn

Just bought a new frigidair dryer - hooked it up, turned it on and dryer runs for a second and the stops...we smelled a burning smell and reaized that the drum was not turning.
I tried to manually turn the drum and it would not move - is there a screw holding the drum in place for (for shipping) that can be removed.

I have been through dryer hell for the last two months - HELP!

    We read all manuals including the PDF's online and I've found no information.

    Do you have any idea of what the issue could be?

  • robertam Jan 26, 2008

    Thanks for the info, but I am really not sure how the belt could be cooked when the dryer is brand new out of the box. We only started it once.

I have a front load frigidaire dryer. I literally used it, then my husband moved it to our new house. The lights come on but the dryer will not start?

Is the motor running, but it's not spinning the drum? This means the belt jumped off and the needs to have the tensioner reset. Most of the time you can flip it on it's side and fix this from the bottom. If it's turning, but no heat, then you need to probably replace the heating element from the back. There's lots of How to on YouTube. Is the power going in correct? If you hooked some sort of adaptor to your power plug you maybe trying to get 220-230 volts power out of a 120 supply. Maybe that's why you're getting a small light, but nothing else.

Frigidaire electric dryer will not stay on for

Reach inside and turn the drum by hand. It should be very eay to turn. If it is not easy to turn then something needs to be replaced such as glides or drum bearing.

Dryer stooped working suddenly.

Replace the fan belt that turns the dryer drum. Use only the genuine replacement spare part for your dryer.

Front load frigidaire will run for 10 sec and shut off. Help.

Reach inside the dryer and turn the drum. Is it difficult to turn? If so you may have bad glides causing the motor to shut down. Or maybe you just have a bad motor my friend.

No heat

Check your breaker box, or fuses. A dryer will run but not heat if one fuse is bad.
