SOURCE: frigidaire dryer

there are several issues that can cause this most common is the vent restricted backing up heat in the dryer if its as old as you say you need to check the whole vent system it has to be 4inches dia all the way if its mashed or drooping under the house its restricted if its folded over or mashed behind the dryer its restricted the thermal limiter is a safety thermostat it opens about 300 degrees to prevent fire the dryer has three thermostats an operating thermostat a safety thermostat and the thermal limiter if the operating thermostat fails then the safety thermostat takes over and cycles on about 165 on and off if both thermostats fail then the thermal limiter opens about 220-300 depending and it doesn't reset and cuts all the power to the dryer till a tech can check everything i just told you about so if your vent is clear and the best way to vent is 4inch pvc drain pipe 90 it up behind the drier then connect with a short peice of metel vent then just replace all three thermostats

SOURCE: I am trying to repair an Admiral dryer, Model

If ignitor glows then clicks off, and process repeats itself every few minutes it sounds like either you have no gas going to valve or more likely one of the burner solenoid coils on top of valve is shorted out. The coils usually come as a kit and are inexpensive. They are held in place by a bracket with 2 screws.

Frigidaire affinity LEQ6000ES2 error code e68...dryer will not start


Good Afternoon David,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# LEQ6000ES2, is showing you an error code of E68 and will not start. I also see that you have changed the thermal limiter. Looking at what the E68 error code means, a key or button stuck, there could be something else causing the code to come up. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance, determine what is causing the E68, and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dryer has power wont start


Hello Dom - Being that you have narrow down some possibilities, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause:

1. Make sure the dryer is plugged into outlet, and plugged in correctly.

2. Is house fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker.
3. Make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. I would recommend reaching out to a Licensed Electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself.

4. Thermal limiter tripped or an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor (electric dryers only) in the unlikely event of an overheated situation.A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault.

If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

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 electric dryer model gleq2152es1 lights wont turn on and wont do anything


Hi ana piedranayari05, this is AP! Thank you for your post

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire electric dryer not turning on. Make sure the dryer is still plugged into the outlet, and plugged in correctly. Also check to see if the house fuse is blown or circuit breaker tripped? If so, Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker. Check to make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. Have a licensed electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself. Additionally, the thermal limiter could have tripped or possibly an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation. A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault. If you have check the plug, fuses, and circuit breaker and still no power I would recommend contacting a local technician to diagnose and service your electric dryer.

Dryer drum turns, no heat, replaced thermal limiter


Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.

Frig. model# gler642as3.. No power. No light.


Go to http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=1107121&ModelNum=GLER642AS3&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=4&Selected=ZGBPCQG3&Position=4&mfg=Frigidaire&Type=&Mark=0 the parts you need to check are F15, F33 and F36. F15 is the element. F33 is the High limit thermostat and the F36 is thermal limiter. The most common problem with these dryers when they are not heating is a bad thermal limiter (F36) F33 would be my second guess and the element would be my next. Either one of these could be causing it not to heat. Good luck

Frigidaire dryer overheats, already checked venting


check upline from the thermal limiter, to the temperature control.
it's elementary, but double-check the right part number with the folks who sold you the limiter.
after that, it's hard to say- possibly you got a bad limiter.

My dryer will run but will not get hot. The trouble shooting guide says that on of the two house fuses in the circuit may be blown or the thermal limiter is tripped. Where are the fuses in the dryer. I...


First id make sure you have both phase of AC power coming into dryer.
Go to your house panel and reset yoru house breaker for the dryer. If in the USA the breaker should be a 240volt / 30amp breaker. It will have two breakers tied together at the trip switch.
If AC power is good at the dryer outlet then it could be one of the followings.

  1. Open Thermal limit fuse or trip switch.
  2. Open Heater Element.
  3. Control board is faulty.

Thermal limiter stops dryer; replaced multiple times. Dryer dead.


I think you are working on the wrong end. Check the fan and inlet ductwork of the dryer, if the air isn't moving properly, it will not move enough to keep the coils and limiters cool and they will fail after working properly a few times.
