Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
I have a Frigidaire Gallery Heavy Duty Dryer that I've had for about 4 years. When I turn the start dial it makes a humming noise but will not start. What is likely the cause?
I had the same problem. Talked to my applience guru and got it fixed for free. First remove the cover on the back of the dryer at the bottom left corner. You should be able to see the motor. With an air compressor and blow gun attachment blow out the motor very well. The Frigadaire's have a nasty habit of clooecting lint and fine dust in the motor windings and magnets. After you blow it out very well, and be sure to spin the drum around by hand while doing this so the motor turns and you get all the lint and dust out your dryer sould work just fine. PLEASE remember to unplug the dryer while doing this so you don't electrocute yourself. When done plug it back in and give it a try. I will almost guarantee your problem will be sloved. It worked for mine and it's been working every since.
