If the sparks are near the heating element but it works ok yet,it could just be lint build-up burning up when it touches the element,might want to vacuum it out to lessen the fire hazard

Good Afternoon James,

I understand that you rebuilt your Frigidaire dryer, found that you didn't plug in the light wire and it sparked. Now the dryer won't go. From this point, I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your dryer and see what is causing your appliance to not go. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My dryer drum sparks when i push on it


You have loose or shorted wiring in the dryer. Unplug the dryer.Raise the top lid. Remove the screws on the top right and left inside the dryer to remove the front panel. Disconnect the door switch wires and set the panel aside. Reach in under the drum and remove the drive belt from the motor and pulley. Remove the drum. Inspect the wiring visible inside. Remove the rear panel from the dryer and inspect all wiring and thermostats and fuse relays.Remove the terminal cover where the cord connects and inspect all wiring there for broke or loose. Open the control panel and inspect all wires there for broken or loose. Repair any wiring found defective and replace any parts found defective.

You probably have a coin or other metal object stuck at the bottom of your dryer door preveinting it from opening. Take a table knife and see if you can push the object upward to allow the door to open..

Loud metal on metal noise, and sparks in rear of dryer


I've seen sparks flying out of an appliance before!
It could be a bad motor so be careful if you plan to plug it in again!
I would leave the back cover off before trying again so as to see what's sparking!

Unplug power immediately.

Check the fuses/circuit breaker at the back of the appliance.

You may need to have the heating element inside the machine tested, and eventually replaced, it had probably shorted out.

You can call a technician using the number listed on the owner manual.

You can get replacements here.
