This sounds like a defective element. Check for continuity.

I have a Frigidaire Dryer FEQ332ES0 that will not start unless I hold the pushbutton in inside the door and give the drum a stout spin. I will kick in and then run but door is open, not good


You have a shorted motor. The motor has an open start winding. If you press the door switch and then turn the dryer drum and if this gets it to start, that's the problem.

Kenmore cloths dryer no heat --- drum and air but no heat ---think it is therma fuse clean vents


Well it runs so that is not the thermal fuse. I would check the limits on the heater or maybe the heater itselfthemobilian_2271.jpgthemobilian_2272.jpgthemobilian_2273.jpgthemobilian_2274.jpg
If these components check ok and yall still have no heat then the timer may be bad.
or the dedicated house dryer circuit breaker is gone on the heat load side.
themobilian_2275.jpgthemobilian_2276.jpg
The motor works on 120 volts or L-1 and neutral. The 5000 watt 240 heating element needs both sides of the breaker to operate correctly. Heat can be iffy or none at all if this is the case.

I have service manual and more HERE

Hi, my FEQ332ES0 stopped starting up (after a day of no use), and it makes a faint buzz when I hit the start switch. The tumbler light works, and I OHM'd out the thermal limiter and it looks fine. Any...


Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why yourdryer will not run...

Recently moved..stopped working after the move


your problem may be in the voltage that the dryer works on. If the cord is fine then I would check to see what voltage that may be supplied tot he dryer and if the dryer can operate on the voltage being supplied.

My Frigidaire Affinity dryer stopped working after less than 2 years. No lights, nothing. I checked our fuse box and everything is fine. Is there a fuse in the dryer that needs to be replaced or reset?


there is a couple of thermal fuses that you can check inside the dryer chances are it is the one that is located one the back wall behind the drum

Check the thermal fuse. No continuity means a bad fuse. Part costs around 10 bucks no more.

Kitchenaid superba dryer won't heat Where is the heater fuse located?


Q - My electric dryer runs but will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating?
A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.
Q - My gas dryer will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating?
A - Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats,motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
A page for checking gas dryers is here.
Meter testing and usage tips.
1. Power supply-check power supply at terminal block where cord enters the dryer. Should read 240V. If you read 240V here, tested with a volt meter, unplug dryer and test components with ohm meter.
2. Thermostats-Cycle and safety thermostats-read them with an ohm meter. Should show continuity . How common thermostats work.
3.Timer-The timer has a set of contacts that pass voltage to the heaters. If you can not determine by wiring picture what they are, check across the two terminals with the largest wires on them. The heater wires are almost twice as large as the others. You should read continuity with timer in heat mode.
4. Thermal fuses-In recent years the makers of dryers are using thermal fuses to let you know something is wrong with your dryer. They are generally non resetting and have to be replaced. The thermal fuses are located on the heater element housing and should read continuity if read with an ohm meter. Most blown thermal fuses are the result of vent/air flow problems or a grounded heating element.
5. Selector Switches-Read the wiring picture and determine which switch is closed. You should read continuity across closed switches.
6. Safety Switch on Motor-There is a safety switch on motor to insure that heaters can not come on unless motor is running. It is normally open when the motor is idle/not running, and closes when motor runs. In order to check with an ohm meter, remove the two large wires on motor switch and make them electrically safe. Tape them. Plug the dryer in and start motor. Check continuity across the terminals on the motor switch you removed the heavy wires from. If it is ok you should read continuity. Remember that the smaller wires in a dryer carry the 120V and the large wires carry 240V. There is no voltage on these two terminals with wires removed. It is ok to test with ohm meter.
7. Heat elements-Test heater element with an ohm meter. You will read continuityacross a good element ( 8-12 ohms is an average element ).
But darn it, I don't have a Ohm Meter....
To check the thermal fuse  - You can bypass the thermal fuse (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.To check the thermal cut-out  - You can bypass the thermal cut-out (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
To check the thermostats for continuity -  - You can bypass the thermostat (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
To check the Element: Try removing element and physically looking at the element wire for a break in the wire.

Dryer not heating


  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.
