Sounds like your heating element has broken. Unplug from electricity. On the front of the dryer there are two clips that hold the top of the dryer to the front they can be tripped by inserting a flat blade screwdriver between the top and front panel apx 2 inches in from the side in the seam where the top and front come together. These clips are sprung steel and you have to push hard. (I usually give the screwdriver a sharp rap with a hammer) When you trip them you can lift the top up and backwards. Then about 12 inches down the inside front you will see a 5/16 nut that holds the front to the sides take them out. Then you can pull forward and lift the front off the machine. You will need to remove the belt you can look under the drum the belt goes thru two pullys one is a tensioner pop the belt off the tensioner and pay attention how the tensioner looks it may fall down and you will have to rehook it to put the belt back. I believe this model also has an access door at the tensioner and motor that gives closer access to the belt. Then you just lift the drum up and out of the dryer pull forward slightly before lifting up. The heating element will be exsposed in the back and the wire that was arching will be here. Remove the wires to the element and the mounting screws on the element pan. Unhook the Hi limit sensor on the pan and put it on the new one. Reinstall the element ect in reverse. The only problems you may run into is where the wires hook to the element can be hard to remove and unhooking the belt pay close attention to the tensioner and how the belt is attached to the tensioner and motor. This should only take you about 40 minutes to complete. I hope this helps

Error Code re5, dryer runs but no heat.

Good Afternoon Henry, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "re5" and will not heat. I have researched our available information for dryer and without having the model number the error code appears to be invalid. I would recommend performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you restore power and continue to receive the error code can you please comment back with the model number? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of your dryer. With that information I would be happy to assist you further. -Matt

What do i do when my frigidaire dryer shows error code 68

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# LEQ2152ES0, is showing a 68 error code. The E68 error code means that there is a possible button that is stuck. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power is restored start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dryer make buzzing sound like a stuck relay when you push the start button. pushing dryness control gives flashing error signal. Model LEQ2152ESO

The dryer motors are common for lint build up in the motor at the motor switch. If you get the dryer apart again use a vacuum and small paint brush or compressed air and blow out the motor. Make sure you clean your external vent frequently and do not use flexible vinyl ducting.
Hope this helps and there is no need to replace the motor anytime soon.

Dryer runs no heat

the kenmore is manufactured by Whirlpool. there are thermal overloads in the blower housing and one in back where the elements are. if these overloads open, 1) motor won't run 2) element won't turn on. check for an obvious open element.
