I don't know what you mean when you ask about fuses since a blown fuse would stop power to the dryer, but I do know a common reason for a dryer to run and not produce sufficient heat is that it may be cycling on the "safety" thermostat. One common reason for this is that the "cycling" thermostat (which is the thermostat which the dryer should cycle on), located in the exaust air stream, is insulated with collected lint, which also lowers the air flow through the ducts. You may just need to thoroughly clean the accumulated lint. I would suggest buying the service manual for your dryer, if available, and go to the manuals troubleshooting guide.
A test for cycling on the safety thermostat is to run the dryer with a damp load and watch the flame through the small service door at the bottom of the dryer; if the flame stars cycling on and off every, say 15 to 30 seconds, then the dryer is cycling on the saftey thermostat, if the flame repeatedly burns for close to a minute or longer, than that is not the problem.

Why wont my dryer stay running?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not stay running. Please check to make sure the door is staying closed. If the door is opening in mid-cycle, then the dryer will stop running. Also, make sure the plug is in the socket tightly. Your dryer could be shaking the plug loose, which could possibly be causing it to stop running. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire Affinity AEQ6700FSO electric dryer does not heat, then shuts off within 10 minutes.


Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.

Frigidaire aeq7000eg0 motor doesn't run


Most of your fuses for a Frigidaire dryer are upper right hand side of the rear bulkhead. Here is a westinghouse dryer video I made In the video I look for failed components and show the various parts, explain their function, and location.
