SOURCE: Trying to remove drum and how to check heating

You don't have to remove the drum to get to the heating element. Remove the cover at the bottom of the dryer, it should be on the right at the bottom.

SOURCE: How do you change the heating element on a frigidaire AEQ6000ES2?

WITHOUT THE MODEL NUMBER THIS WILL BE AN EDUCATED GUESS PRY THE TOP UP AT THE EDGES IN FRONT BETWEEN THE TOP AND FRONT PANEL. THEN INSIDE THE FRONT PANEL WILL BE 2 SCREWS HOLDING THE FRONT TO THE CABINET THEY MAY BE 3-4 INCHES DOWN ON BOTH SIDES UNDO DOOR SWITCH WIRES AND RAISE UP FRONT AND REMOVE. NEXT REMOVE THE THREE SCREWS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DRUM ON THE INSIDE. UNDO BELT OF COURSE AND REMEMBER HOW IT IS ON. AFTER 3 SCREW REMOVAL PULL DRUM OUT AND THERE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE HEAT ELEMENT. WHEN INSTALLING NEW ONE FOLLOW DIRECTIONS TO THE LETTER IT MATTERS. GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

the thermistor in air outlet duct is very common for these. with front panel off find plastic duct from blower at bottom. pull out thermistor and look at inner side. it has triangular shape and if you can see shiny redish color at tip instead of all black then its worn. this causes numerous heat and control issues.

My dryer (Frigidaire Affinity)just stopped working as if the power shut off.. I have checked the breaker, it's fine. it stopped in the middle of a drying cycle. I'm thinking the control panel went out


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/frigidaire-dryer-aeq6000es2-repair/aeq6000es2-wont-start.html
Take a look at this web page/video. Your problem may be that the thermal limiter switch blew (which is not that easy to replace) .... compared to something in the control panel going out. Had you been doing a lot of heavy dryer loads before the unit died .. or a lot of lint built up? A blown limiter switch in some dryers will be as if you unplugged it (nothing goes on) ... but some dryers will still turn the drum but not heat. I am not sure about your unit.
The limiter switch is a safety device so your dryer does not overheat .... so if the switch did blow try to understand WHY .... or it may just blow again.
Good luck...

Heating element quit working on my frigidaire affinity dryer


If the unit still works, it just does not dry, please have a professional diagnose the heating element and the blower assembly. Either, or, could be faulty at this time. This is not a typical DIY job so please consult a professional.

Model LEQ6000ES Affinity Frigidaire electric dyer purchased 5-29-06: tumbles but won't heat. Cleaned all air ducts and lint trap and still won't heat. Error codes not obvious. What else can we check?


you will need to check the main power and make sure there is 220 volts at the termianl block if that is goor then you will need to check the heating element an all thermal fuses.

remove the small panel in the back of the dryer so you can get the belt loose.
then remove the lid.Take out the four screws that hold the control panel in place.
then remove the screws that hold the front panel on and then remove the drum lift up on the back of the drum to get it loos e from the carrier bearing holder thenyou can get to the heating element and thermal fuse on the back wall of the dryer and the side wall of the heating element can.

My Frigidaire Dryer (AEQ6000ES2) won't heat. Did


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the dryer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. Over the years, I haven't had much trouble with my dryers. The E56 error code means high motor current. To help you find out why, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair information on dryers and other appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. You can probably verify the meaning of the error code there. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
