The dryer sounds like an unbalanced washer. Sound is coming from the front top left side. Machine diesn't move. does it even when empty. Began after was on for about 10 minutes.

Possible bad bearing for the drum front or maybe a drive belt with a missing segment that thumps with every revolution. You will need to open the top to inspect--either screws in the back edge of the top or insert a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring catch on each side. Hope this helps!

Frigidaire dryer feq221cas2 the startswitch will not stay on

The switch is bad and need to be replaced. Holding the switch in the on position may cause it to burn, thus causing a fire so please do not hold it in manually.

My new dryer thumps every revolution

Flat spots on the support rollers from sitting in storage will make a thump. So will heavy wet clothes if they are not spun dry enough from the washer. This may lessen as the unit is used but since it is in warranty a service call to rule out major problems is in order.

Since the light comes on and the turntable rotates, I would suspect a bad magnetron, a loose connection at the magnetron, a failed high voltage transformer, or shorted high voltage rectifier diode.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Ifit's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years)but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then yourmanufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you orthe labor charge to do the work.

If you or a friend want to work on it, please see these links first:

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first: (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Ok final Question

If this is a frigidaire, when the washer has a load in it, as the agitator agitates the tub should move about 1/8 of a turn. Meaning that for 8 agitations the tub should make 1 revolution. We call this indexing in the appliance repair world. If the tub is making 1 revolution in 4 agatations or 1 revolution in 1 agitation, the transmission is bad. This should have a 5 year warranty if purchased before 2006. You will also need a tub seal. Hope this helps

Thumping sound at the end of spin cycle.

Rankine, sounds more like a worn drive block that sits under the basket. Usually the brake will not make a thumping sound. Attached is a couple of pictures. Check this out back.
