Problem with top dryer on stackable frigidaire

I went to start my dryer one day and it just did not start. I loaded the clothes, cleaned the lint catcher, shut the door, set the time and hit the start button. When I press the start button all you can hear is a small buzzing sound like the dryer wants to start but wont spark. Does anyone know what I could do?

    The washer and dryer were working fine and the next day I went to dry the clothes and it wouldn't start. It just stopped working! I have only had this dryer for two years and it is already giving me problems. What could be wrong with it?

    I pulled out the lint catcher and felt something kind of catch and heard something fall into the lint catcher compartment. I emptied the lint catcher and replaced it as normal. Then, when I started the dryer, there is a horrible noise, so apparently there is something that somehow got into that compartment and then into a blower fan?? How can I get that out? (And prevent it from happening again?)

The switch may be bad or just not engaging when the door is closed. To test it you could tape something to the inside of the door right where the door meets the switch and see if it comes on. I did that and it worked. I use it as a temp. fix.

Hello Mike Brady - From what you have described it seems like the dryer is experiencing a wiring failure or a communication error with the control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Clothes take.2 hours or more to dry


Check to make sure that the dryer vent is clean. Most of the time when the clothes take a long time to dry it is the vent. If the vent is clogged then it cannot circulate the air inside the dryer. Also check underneath the lint filter to make sure it is not clogged as well

My Kemore stackable dryer does not work properly. I have to run the dryer 3 or 4 times to dry a load. Does feel hot at times when I open the dryer and feel the clothes.


Perhaps you have an air restriction of some sort. Cleaning the dryer and checking the vent can greatly increase efficiency. I recently replaced the glides and belt on one of these and made some repair photos. The dryer was plum full of lint all over the controls and everywhere. I took a shop vac to it before I snapped the pictures later that day. I have included a manual also HERE.

Dryer drum has come loose, how do I tighten it?


These machines have a metal ball (like a small trailer hitch ball) mounted on the rear of the drum that rides in a plastic saddle mounted on the rear of the machine,
The parts that you need to replace would be the plastic glides mounted in the front of the drum that run on teflon pads glued to the rim around the door. When they get bad you start to notice dammaged clothing.
The drum is allowed to sag down enough that clothing can get into the gap at the bottom and as the drum turns upward the items get pinched when the gap closes at the top.
All these parts can be replaced but be prepared if you do it yourself, this is a tough machine to work on.
Good Luck

Frigedaire stackable takes forever to dry


One way to tell if it has a heater element problem is to use an Amprobe to read how much current the dryer pulls when operating. If the amps are 2/3, 1/2, or 1/3 of what it's supposed to pull, then it's an element problem, and you need to fix that.

My only question is, how long would it take to dry that same load of sheets when the unit was new, and does the time now compare to the then?
