Question about Frigidaire GLER642A Electric Dryer
Hello. On our Frigidaire Dryer, I loosened 4 small screws on the back of the dryer, thinking I could access the rear of the dryer to clean residual lint out. Unfortunately (STUPID I know) I could not seem to put the screws back in. After attempting to plug the dryer in I got a flash from inside and a fowl stinky smell. Two questions, I think I may have blown an internal fuse (the flash) and I now think I loosened the "Heater Element Housing." Would you agree and if so, how can I better access the housing so I can reattach properly.
Thanks In Advance
Actually you probably blew element ..pop top up at corners with puty knife to release clips lift top remove 1 screw each side remove any wires to front panel ..panel will lift off clips from rear remove panel left bottom reach in and remove belt from idler/motor pulley note the belt routing first from front remove the yellow block lift up on rear of drum and pull drum out elemnt behind drum ..engineer who designed that element needs to do a few of those in a tight laundry room for about a month
