Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
I attempted to locate an answer to resolve the issue for you, but you have not provided me with enough information to access my service database. Please observe the TIP below, and post me back and I will be happy to assist you further.
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

Dryer gallery series e68


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to replace the board on your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLEQ2152ES, due to receiving an E68 code. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your particular appliance, and should be able to replace the board with ease. Hope this is helpful.

Fridgidaire gallery gas dryer + burn marks


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the dryer on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# GLEH1642FS, has burn marks. It sounds like the air flow in your dryer could possibly be blocked. I suggest cleaning out the lint trap, the ducting, and the vent outside. I also suggest cleaning the lint filter, by running it under the hottest water you can handle and a small scrub brush. You should be able to clean the burn marks with a small scrub brush and warm water. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire Gallery Series GLEH1642FS loud noise on final spin


It sounds like something has come loose or some item was placed in the unit accidentally and it got lodged in the drum. You will need to start by taking the front cover off and looking around the drum.

I have a frigidaire gallery series front loading electric dryer model # 134509400c.press start and it beeps with a dr code.any idea what is causing this?


dr is door error
this generation of dryer has alot of control board failures(the relay for the heat burns the terminals for the wires you can inspect these relay connection visably by removing the front control panel you might want to try setting the machine to the fluff/air dry setting and try starting the dryer, if it starts in air fluff you need to check the connections on that relay this is not a factory taught test.its just something a customer pointed out one time and i have tried on many after the fact, and for whatever reason these machines will still run in fluff mode when the board is fried
