UNPLUG THE MACHINE. Take the back off the dryer, usually 4 to 6 screws. On the backside of the panel you just took off should be a schematic showing where the thermo fuses are.

Take an ohm meter and check across the prongs sticking up, you may have to unplug them to get good contact. They should show 1, open, if they show 0, short. they need replaced. There are online parts companies that can help you get the right part.

It is unlikely that the element is bad, but if the thermo fuses show open, then you should be able to see the element, and replace it.

Why frigidaire dyer model fex831cso not heating up?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the dryer is not heating up on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# FEX831CS0. First, there are two house fuses that the dryer is plugged into. Make sure that both are good and the breaker has not been tripped. If one of the fuses is blown, this can cause your dryer to not heat. Secondly, make sure that the lint filter, lint trap area, ducting leading outside, and the outside exhaust duct are free of lint. This can cause your dryer to not dry, due to lack of ventilation. 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

What could it be


Hello Reese,
I see that you're having a Problem with your Frigidaire GLEH1642DS Front Load Stacked Washer/Dryer. I see that the washer will not work until dryer is turned on and the dryer will not heat. I would recommend giving the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or switching the circuit breaker off that the appliance is attached to. When you do this you will want to leave it off for 3-5 minutes. Once the 3-5 minutes has elapsed, bring power back on and try to restart it. If you are still having trouble with the washer not working until dryer is turned on and the dryer will not heat. I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose and see why you keep receiving this error code.

-Best Regards-

No heat


Check to make sure the thing that holds the lint trapper isn't clogged as well as the foil hose leading from the dryer to the outside wall.

Dryer takes 90 minutes to dry ONE load. What do I need to check?


clean lint out of vent first. then check heat stats and make sure vent is not blocked or kinked. if dryer cannot vent hi-temp. heat stat. will cut power to element, when it cools off element re energizes heats up and heat stat cuts power again. this causes a long time to dry. could be other things, but this is most likely

Dryer will not heat-up, clothes stay wet even after hours of drying! gas is on, gas bill payed,turning needlessly, no drying.


It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

Where can I locate the blown fuse/s of a frigidaire dryer?


There are no user servicable fuses in the machine, I believe they are talking about your breaker box.
A 220 dryer requires two 110 volt circuits to run the 220 volt heater
The motor and control circuits only require 110 and are run from only one of these two lines. If the other line blows the dryer will still run but there will be no heat.
Good Luck

Unplug unit! Remove top screws and pull off top lid of dryer. Heater terminals should be at top right. Use ohm meter to check resistance. If ohms won't display, then your heater unit probably has an open circuit. For instance, my GLET1031 has a reading of 12.5 ohms.
