Frigidaire electric dryer #134745400 -electronic control board just stopped working. no lights, no power at all. checked and getting power to plugin. getting power through pigtail, lent filter clean.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Wired outlet incorrectly and breaker tripped. dryer will not come on. there is power in the outlet. no beeps or anything, completely dead. model number gleq2152es


hello if it striped the breaker theres a dead short somewhere in the dryer something on the power supply board could have shorted to ground check the glass fuse on the power board of the dryer if blown make sure you use the same rated fuse also check the capaitor next to the motor these can go short circuit hope it helps

LER7620LW0 dryer does nothing...........worked fine on last load.........door switch makes clicking noise...........what should i try next


If the dryer is doing nothing at all, sounds like you lost power to it or the door switch has failed even if you hear a clicking sound. Check to see if you have power at the outlet where the dryer is plugged in. Use a hair dryer or other portable device. If there is no power there, check the circuit breaker for that outlet. It may have tripped.

Dryer wont turn on. Breaker in breaker box is fine. No light inside dryer. What's wrong?


Dryers run off 220v, and sometimes only one leg of the breaker trips. So you need to flip the breaker all the way off, and then back on. Sometimes the breaker feels off but is not fully reset. Make sure you completely trip it off then back on. Does the dryer light work now? Is there any indication that it's getting some power? If the breaker is fine and your still not getting power, then the next step is to make sure you have power coming to the plug behind the dryer. At this point you should only continue if your comfortable working with electricity. Once you move the dryer you can check the outlet with a meter, or other circuit tester. If you got power here, then you'll need to start checking things on the dryer. you can remove the plate where the cord goes into the dryer and look for loose or burnt wiring there. If that looks ok, then you'll need to start taking the dryer apart; front panel, top, back, etc, as needed to access the wiring and controls. From here you can trace the wiring from the supply to the controls and to the motor, etc. look for anything burn, If nothing looks out of place you can start checking temp sensors, or fusable links. If this is above your head, then stop where your not comfortable and have checked by a service technician.

My GGQ 9800 gas dryer won't start. It was working


Hi,
Things to check first on a no start dryer.
Check for power at outlet.
Inspect power cord.
When you try to turn it on do you hear anything?
Check the door switch(does it click when pressed in?)
The next item to check and most likely replace on a completely dead dryer with power and a good door switch would be the thermal fuse located inside the cabinet.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else

The dryer runs but does not heat. Thoroughly cleaned.


The duct fuse must have continuity in order for power to get to the gas assembly even though she may run she won't heat if the fuse is blown. 53481c0.jpg
If that is good and you have power to the gas assembly nothing will happen if the flame sensor is dead. If the sensor is good then the next thing to check is the ignitor. MORE
