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.

Bad motor or something stuck in the blower wheel

    After a little research and a Good tech, I discovered that my Frigidaire Gallery model # GLER642AS3 has either a problem with the start motor windings or a bad thermal switch.
    Easy test but takes three hands. Make sure unit is plugged in then open the door. Have your helper hold the door safety switch in and then have them hold or turn the start switch while you manually turn the drum. If the drum starts turning after you give it a little help then it is one of those two parts and will require a digital volt ohm meter to determine which part is needed. The parts are relatively cheap so don't just run out and buy a new dryer. I haven't determined which is bad on mine yet as I need to get to bed but have narrowed it down to one of those two parts and would be happy to explain how to repair as soon as I discover which one it is. I'll also point you in the right direction for the best price on the replacement part and how to repair it. Unplugging the machine is not going to cure the problem.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLER642A, is making a thumping noise when running, and you want to know how to fix this. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician.

Wow, different person, different dryer, same problem, same day. I went and got a complete new motor assembly for $170. I hooked it up, and it is still doing the same thing. So obviously that is not the answer. What did you find?
