    I have A Friidaire Gallery GLER642AS3 electric dryer. When I turn the start switch, the console hums, the light is on inside, but the drum does not spin.



    Could it be the timer is bad, or maybe a fuse?

Timer won't stop after cycle finished.


Dryer will not shut off:

The timer: Located in the control console of the dryer the timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit and the timer motor itself. A defective timer motor or a defect in the timer's electrical contacts can cause the timer motor to fail and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made when the dryer is unplugged. Another test u can do is observe by eyesight and see does the timer advance or is it stuck on one cycle?


1. On gas and electric dryers that have an "Auto Dry" cycle, the cycling thermostat is often used to advance the timer as well regulate the drum temperature. Essentially, thermostat will alternately turn on the heat source or the timer motor when the temperature has been satisfied. To check this thermostat, you will have to check for power to the timer motor with a multi-meter, during a cycle. This is a live voltage test and caution should be used.

2. Some dryers will use a cool down thermostat to tumble the clothes without heat, at the end of the dry cycle. Power is routed through this thermostat to the drive motor to keep it running until the drum temperature has dropped to a specific temperature. If this thermostat fails it can cause the drum to turn indefinitely or until the door is opened. You can check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made with the power removed from the dryer.

Lastly check the moister sensor for OHMS according to ur schematic as it must show a certain amount of ohms as per ur unit. When unit has been on short while

Frigidaire front loading dryer model LEQ2152ES0 I am looking to purchase a used one, the owner has all paperwork and such, says the drum does not turn, sounds like it trys to but does not. he thinks i


Hey friend, thanks for the post!

If the drum is not turning on a Frigidaire dryer it could be a potential problem with the belt, motor, or control panel. The best thing to have done would be to have a professional come out and properly diagnose the appliance. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Dryer not heating


usually when the dryer is not heating is because the heating element has break. you can purchase a heating element kit with insulators at a parts appliance store.requires taking the dryer apart and removing the drum. the heating element is behind the drum. if your handy you should have no problem. good luck!

Drum rotates and only occasional heat


The problem is the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. These are inexpensive and easy to replace.

There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.
