Bad door switch. Easy fix. Remove two screws by lint screen that secure top to blower housing. On the right and left side( front of unit). Use putty knife to release top from clips. Top will hinge back to expose door shop. Good luck.

The door switch is sticking. Door switch is around the door opening and is located where the door would push it in when the door is closed. It may just need cleaning or putting back in its rightful place or it may be broken and need replacing.

More info, let me know.

THE LIGHT WILL NOT COME ON WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED AND THE DRYER WILL NOT STOP WITH THE DOOR OPEN


The dryer has a switch in the door that is activated when the door is opened/closed, replace this switch or check the connector to it or the wiring.

The door actuator mounted on the door or the switch mounted on the dryer is missing or broken. The dryer is supposed to stop if the door is opened. Replace the door actuator or the switch.

We have a new Frigidaire FASG7074NR2. It stopped at the beginning of the cycle and read door open. The door was not open. We tried opening and firmly closing the door and unplugging but it still reads door...


Good Morning Frances,

I understand that your new Frigidaire dryer, model# FASG7074NR2, stops at the beginning of the cycle and states that the door is open. I also see that opening the door firmly, closing the door firmly, and unplugging your appliance, the display still reads "Door Open", and will not run. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your dryer and determine why it is stating "Door Open". I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My Dryer won't stop drying until I open the door.


If it does this in a Timed Dry setting the timer is bad. If it does this in an Auto dry setting it could be a bad moisture sensor or a bad timer.

Dryer runs when door shuts. Only stops when door is open


There is a safety switch in the door that shuts dryer off when door is open. If there is more to your problem let me know. From what you have stated there is no problem.

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.
