Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, this forum is not able to supply any type of manual, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer technical manual' and you may be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct. You may find, however, that it will supply only to service engineers but good luck anyway.

My Frigidaire Dryer is not heating anymore. Repair and testing for model...


The example is referring to Frigidaire electric dryer model FEX831CSO. If you have a different model see here how to locate parts and diagrams: Where do I find parts and diagrams?

First part to test is the thermal fuse located at the back of the appliance. This is tested reading Ohms on fuse contacts. follow procedure explained further below to test the fuse.

If the fuse is not the culprit, it will be neccessary to access heater assembly and thermostats.

You access the heater parts by opening the top panel, part 3 on diagram below.

The heater assembly is part of the housing, and it is part 15 on diagram.

Replacing the heater requires further disassembly, first ensure that the problem is not a defective thermostat or thermal limiter. The thermostats fails far more commonly than the heater.

To test heater and thermostat use a multimeter set at Rx1. disconnect the thermostat contacts and read impedance at room temperature.
If the thermostat is good it will read zero or very low impedance.
An alternative way to test a thermostat is by jumping its contacts.

The element is also tested reading impedance. If the element has no continuity (infinite Ohms), then it must be replaced, otherwise it is good.

Test both the thermostat and the Thermal limiter, they are tested in the same way. Both this parts are accessible after removing the top panel, and can be replaced without further disassembling.

Here the parts:

Thermostat:PS446428 part 33 in diag.

Thermal limiter:PS419402 , part 36 in diag.


Test and repair must be done by a trained person. Call the phone number listed on the user manual if you need to contact a qualified technician.

Need to get to the pump, clogged hose. Need a diagram of how the take the front panel off of a Model FEX831CSO frigidaire washer and dryer stackable

Your model number ends in a zero, not the letter O so maybe this was giving you trouble finding the diagram. In any case here is the diagram for your model washer.

I cant find my dryer model number online.

Go to and type in your model number. Use the suggested model number they provide, which is the XMW0 suffix you have listed. The part numbers will be the same for these models. If you look under the "Cabinet" diagram at item number 56, it states in the part description that this belt replaces the 5 rib (wider) belt that you have and fits all Whirlpool models. The part number is AP2946843.

For a diagram on how to replace the belt, go to and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the next page, is a link for "Dryer Belt Diagrams" under the "Special Features" section. Scroll down to Whirlpool and use diagram H. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Hello mcbeanga,
Please find a link to an exploded view f your dryer
In many cases ( and I am not all that familiar with your figidaire model) belt replacement can be handled by removing the front and top panel. The exploded view may help a bit. Once you have the front removed, pay particular attention or take a digital picture if you have a camera handy) of the path that the belt takes around the pulley system and tensioner. Hope this helps you,,,
