There are 2 red wires that go from the lint housing cover "moisture sensor" to a connector inside the dryer. The connect to P1 and P2 of the electronic moisture sensor control. It will only connect to one connector of the moisture sensor control.

How do I do a hard reset of frigidaire dryer GLEQ2152ES1


Unplug it overnight. That will definitely reset it. Did you remove the cover where e the lint filter goes in. It is usually held in by two screws from the inside. There should be two wires leading to two metal strip on that cover. Make sure they are clean. You can also reach down into the lint trap to remove any more lint.

Thermal fuse part number


TURN OFF THE POWER NOW!!
25851826-kucbmckx3u3x3wmaw0z02dzb-3-0.jpg Hello. The part numbers are as follows:
42 THERMISTOR 8577274
47 & 48 THERMAL CUT-OFF W/ THERMISTOR-HC STAT 280148(one part number for both thermals in a kit)
51 THERMAL FUSE 3390719
TIP--use a magnetic screwdriver that will take nut-driver bits
You will have to raise the top cover, then, on the right side corner, disconnect the door switch connector. Next, using a headlamp, look inside the unit, back towards the front near the upper left and right corners about 4 inches down on either side. Notice there is a screw on each side. Remove these 2 screws and that will release the front cover. Arc the top of it towards you and lift it off the metal positioning tabs at the bottom and set it aside. Remove the lint screen now. Remove the 3-4 screws that hold the lint duct assembly(metal blower cover) in place. CAREFULLY pull the cover away from the lint screen holder(be *darn* careful that you don't damage the wires connected to the moisture sensor bars on the upper right side of the lint screen holder). Now, carefully look for the thermal fuse attached to the blower housing. It will be the one towards the front, slightly to the left of the exhaust thermistor. It will have a pair of light blue wires attached to it. Note P9-1 BU(blue), thermal fuse, BU(blue). Replace the fuse and reassembly is the reverse--caution--don't forget to re-connect the door switch connector at the right corner--cause "It ain't gonna do a thing" (even if you pray for it to work! LOL)

My frigidaire dryer start and a few seconds later an alarm sounds and E68 appears.


Remove your lint filter. Now remove the waffled plastic that covers the lint filter slot. Hint, its inside the dryer, and there's two screws holding it in. Be careful when you pull it out, because there's two wires connected to the metal strip on the bottom edge of it. That metal strip is either the temperature or moisture sensor, I bet. Don't drop the screws into the lint filter slot. If yours is like mine, you'll find that a lot of lint has built up around the contacts for those two wires. Carefully clean all the lint (use soft toothbrush), and reinstall. While you have it opened up, stick your vacuum's crevice tool down inside the lint filter slot and clean up all the lint in there as best you can. Problem solved. I think the build up of lint was shorting the two contacts, and this was screwing up the electronics.

My dryer SHOWS ERROR 68 ON PANEL and shuts off?


Error 68 can mean that your start button is stuck; check to make sure the button is not stuck in the pressed position behind the controls cover.

Dropped pen into lint trap. Now Dryer makes a screeching noise.


The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.

Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.

How do I clean the lint out of the Kenmore Eite He3 past the lint screen?


Remove lint screen. Remove bottom front kick panel (usually three to four screws on very bottom front), There is a metal lint filter air duct assembly that has three to four screws holding it on. Usually one on each upper side of the duct, and one that has a bent metal bracket holding the bottom to the blower housing. This metal duct is dead center in the dryer under the door and ducts over to the bottom left. Remove the screws and pull the duct down and out. You can now clean this assembly. Needless to say, always unglug the dryer or turn it off at the circuit breaker before doing this job. I recommend that you do this at least once a year on the dryer, and clean out the washer lint and coin catcher at least once a year. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

I would like to shut off buzzer in dryer please do not answer if there is a charge


If you are trying to shut off the buzzer because it sounds constantly, there is a problem with the dryer timer motor, and that is an entirely different problem.

However, if you are like me and find it really annoying and loud - and are trying to disable/remove it this is how to do so:

Tools: #2 Phillips head, 8-10" long
#2 Phillips head, 3" long
Optional but recommended: Vacuum cleaner with flex hose. (Unless your dryer is new or you maintain regularly, it is full of lint that is a potential fire hazard - this is a great opportunity to clean it out)
Optional but recommended: Duct tape, the metallic sealing kind, not the elastic adhesive tape

Steps:

1. REMOVE THE POWER PLUG FROM THE WALL. TURN THE DRYER CONTROL TO TIMED DRY AND TURN THE START KNOB TO ENSURE THE POWER IS OFF (IF THE DRYER STARTS, YOU PULLED THE WRONG PLUG - TRY AGAIN)

Note 1: As you start removing panels, it would be a good idea to clean as you go, otherwise you will have a big dusty mess...

Note 2: As you remove the panels either screw the screws back in to where to took them out of, or screw them into the holes of the panels you are removing, they can get mixed up or forgotten easily...

2. Remove the 2 screws that hold the cover from the underside of the dryer tumbler (above the lid for the washing machine)

3. Remove the 7 screws for the tin sheet that covers the blower/tumbler motor

4. Remove the 2 screws for the front control panel with all the knobs for the washer/dryer

5. The panel can be lowered out slots on each end by applying some pressure inwards, then down. Mine was a little more difficult to remove because of all the lint/**** built up so I used a screw driver for a little prying action. If you try this, pry on a side the that is not exposed in case you cause any dents, scratches, etc... for aesthetic reasons.

6. Once you have the panel down, vacuum this area very well, there are exposed contacts and terminals here that will be a source of ignition if a contactor goes bad and there is a lot of lint build up.

7. On the left side where the dryer controls are, there is is a little black rentangular box with two wires going into it - mine was between the dryer cycle knob and the start knob. It is the only component on the backside of the panel that will not have a corresponding knob on the front of the panel. Remove the screw that is holding it in place, and pull it up at an angle to clear a metal clip that holds it in on the side opposite the screw.

8. Once you have the buzzer free, follow each wire from the buzzer to its termination point on the dryer cycle controller. The buzzer should have black a wire going to the "common terminals" labeled either B or C, the other black wire is for the switch terminal of the dryer cycle controller. There should be "female" connectors on the wires from the buzzer, connected to the "male" terminals of the dryer cycle controller.

9. Remove these female connectors, which will disconnect the buzzer from the dryer. Be sure that you do not accidentally pull off an incorrect wire - and if you do, make sure to reconnect it before removing any other wires to avoid confusion as to what goes where.

At this point, get a flash light and take a look around the inner dryer housing. With your vacuum - if you have a brush attachment, use it - clean out all the built up lint from everything you can reach, especially around electrical connections, wires, the dryer motor windings, etc... Take your time, do it right - you spent the time taking the thing apart, it will not kill you (and actually may save your life) to spend 15 minutes cleaning the inside of your dryer.
If you have some duct tape, tape the blower exhaust connections from the plastic blower housing to the metallic duct and the flexible duct. I also taped the plastic piece that the lint screen inside the dryer door sits in because the foam rubber stripping had come apart. There areas are the main places that lint escapes into the inner parts of your dryer.

10. When you are done cleaning, reassemble the dryer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

11. Once reassembled, plug the unit back into the wall.

12. Turn the dryer control knob to as close to the end of a cycle as you can, turn the start knob to start the dryer. If the dryer starts, then stops at the end of the cycle without a buzzer - you were successful.

Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.


Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick

A grounded element on an electric dryer is an element that has broken and the element heating wire has touched something metal, like the cage that is suppose to hold the element or the element metal housing around the element. What this does is, the element only heats on the section that is touching the metal part and usually this part of the element is only heating at about 1/2 heat output. An grounded element can also stay on even when the dryer is not in use!!
