Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
I have a Frigidaire electric clothes dryer (front loading, model LEQ1442ES0) that is just a month shy of 3 years old. All of a sudden, if you just touch the top of it, it turns itself on and beeps twice. This started happening a few days ago and before that it never gave any trouble. The documentation that came with the machine does not cover this situation and I am unsure how to proceed.
I am appreciative of any help.
I was unable to locate a similar complaint through my service database, so this is going to be a hit or a miss answer.
This model has an electronic control board in it and it is possibly picking up a static discharge from your body and powering up the start relay. This may be due to improper grounding or a recent power issue. This type of failure apparently does not happen with a 240 volt appliance often enough to be in the books. I might suggest that you unplug the dryer for 10 minutes, then plug it back in to see if it corrects the problem. If not, you will want to have your outlet inspected by an electrician. You may also have to replace the control board, if the electrician finds the outlet satisfactory. You may also just want to consult a factory authorized servicer that would be capable of checking the outlet AND testing the board before replacing it.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
