Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a GLEH1642FS1 combo washer/dryer stack unit. I was drying a load and heard a loud pop that seemed to come from the top of the unit. After the pop, the dryer stopped. The light in the dryer no longer illuminates. The dryer doesn't start. Nothing wrong with the washer, it operates properly. Any suggestions?

Just bough a used frigidaire stackable unit model FEX831CS and washer makes extremely loud noise on spin cycle. and dryer takes over 2 hours to dry a regular load of clothes. Please help


Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.

I'm trying to disable the safety on the top load fridgidaire washer because it keeps malfunctioning and not finishing the rinse cycle.


This is something that is designed into the feature of this combo stack unit and cannot be bypassed at this current time - from my research.

Transmission bearing has failed. The transmission has to be replaced as a unit.
The transmissions are relatively inexpensive (around 150 to 175 dollars) I have replaced 3
of these and they are rather difficult.

Separating a washer dryer combo


This is a one piece unit. It does not come apart. Use and appliance hand truck with straps to secure. You will need at least 2 people to get unit out, heavy. I used to deliver appliances.

Hotpoint WD 865- washes ok, dryer won't work makes loud popping


sounds like the dryer heater element has worked loose perhaps and shorted out against the metal dryer box which sits on top of the drum.
best to get an engineer out i'd say.

Very loud after stacking.


I assume you used the kit for stacking and removing the top of the washer and installing the plates?



You might need some sticky rubber pads to stop metal to metal contact and some duct tape around the vent exiting the dryer where it meets its back panel. This is common, you could go specific or browse ace hardware and find a compatible source.
