Hi tovia246....

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.

If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

My Frigidaire front load dryer model number FEQ1442ES won't dry


First off clean your dyer vent tubes all the way to outside of you home. This could have been caused by clogged/ dirty vents
Ok so two possible problems.
1. The thermal fuse has blown. It stops the heating coils from working as a safety when overheated. To access your must remove the top cover. It is located towards the top at the right rear of your unit. To check it you need an ohm meter and must unplug the unit. There will be two wires to it unplug them and check for continuity between. If there is not it must be replaced (about $20). If it is bad replacing it should solve your problem.

2. The heating element has gone bad. This is a much more complicated repair on your unit and requires a lot of disassembly to even test. The part is about $80 and unless you are adept at taking dryers apart you might want to call a repairman.

For parts diagrams you could look up online. I use appliance pros but there are many others.

Hope that helps.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.


Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

Flame on dryer goes on off


see this causes and use the common sense.God bless you
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Igniter Gas valve coils Thermal fuse Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too. To determine if the igniter is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one. Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.) To determine if the thermal fuse has blown out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

Hello,
A very typical problem with GAS dryers is the soloniod coils that open the gas valve . When the coils are cool they operate just fine,but once the dryer gets warm from running the coils dont open the gas valve wwhen they are warm. If that is what your experiencing,the dryer heats when its cool but doesn't heat when it's been running for a while,the coils on the gas valve will need to be replaced.

Hi! jroqqow
The simpilest sollution may be one of the breakers is tripped, if its a electric dryer. If its Natural Gas or Propane, it could become even more complex. Best to check the dryer vent and make sure there is adaquate air flow out this vent. Let me know some clarification, Model Name, Number, electric, gas?

How do replace heating element in dryer


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Volt meter
* Clean cloths
* Waste bin
* Replacement fuse (optional)

1. Secure the power cord in the Frigidaire dryer as well as the power outlet if the dryer does not start. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker if necessary.
2. Check the fuse if there is power but no heat, as dryers need two fuses in order to operate properly. Replace the fuse if necessary. Select heated cycles if items are wet and cold after drying.
3. Open the dryer door and slide out the lint screen if the dryer seems to be taking a long time to operate. Clean off the lint and return the lint screen to the unit. Use a volt meter to check the power outlet for proper electricity, which should be 240 volts or more. Clean the exhaust hood outside the home and straighten the exhaust vent if bent.
4. Keep the load size medium and distribute pieces evenly inside the drum if items are wrinkled or damp. Increase drying time or temperature as necessary.
5. Check pockets for hard objects before putting pieces in the dryer, as items can create scratches or chips inside the drum and cause a clinking noise during use.
6. Contact Frigidaire for assistance if the problem continues.

My dryer is not heating


Remove the exhaust vent tubing and thoroughly clean it. The best way is to take it apart piece by piece if it is made with sheet metal. If its the cheap accordian stretch tube throw it away and get the right tubing for it. Lint catches in the spiral folds and collects very rapidly causing to clog up. When it does the moister sensor detects the clog for the heat will not vent through the exhaust tubing. When that happens the sensor shuts down the heating process. If your vents are clean and clear the sensor is at fault so replacing that will be your task
