Frigidaire electric dryer, model FEQ332ES0

MY DOOR ON THE DRYER WAS LEFT OPEN BY ACCIDENT FOR ABOUT A WEEK. WHEN I CAME TO USE IT, THE LIGHT WAS NOT ON INSIDE, YET THE BULB IS GOOD, AND THE DRYER WILL NOT START. WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS???

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

Probably the rear bearing has failed and caused the drum to rub against the heating element. Hey, is this the guy that said he heard a noise last month? LOL

SOURCE: MAYTAG PERFORMA ELECTRIC DRYER WONT START

Same thing as other owners above...Dryer is five years old and is in need of a good cleaning of lint build-up. Model no. PYET444AZW.
I put a large load of clothes, which probably should have been spun again, into the dryer. When I returned the clothes were still basically wet, and the light in the dryer would not come on, and nor would the dryer start.
Tested the circuit breaker. OK. Tested the outlet with a tester pen. OK.
So in searching the internet for a solution, I found and read this string. Found the fuse, called my local appliance parts store and bought a thermal fuse kit for CDN$48 (incl sales tax). Kit came with three fuses.
Just opening the top of the dryer was a chore for a complete novice. However, the entire top is hinged at the back -- so at the front of the machine, just gently poked a slot screwdriver in the gap ringing the sides near the top, twist screwdriver and lift. Big fuse is easily accessible at the top near the back of the drum. It's a round thing about the size of a quarter screwed into a metal frame with two crimped-on wires coming out the top. One screw to removed the frame. Then detached the crimped-on wires, and removed the fuse from the frame with two more screws. You will need a smaller size ratchet or nut-driver.
While you have it apart you might as well change the second nickel-size fuse, too, although it is more of a pain.
You have to remove the coiled elements, which are basically just big springs. They come out with one screw on the right and a little finesse. The second fuse sits on the right-hand side of the metal box surrounding the coiled element. The screw for the coil also held the frame for the fuse in place, but the frame will still be secured to the box with a couple of small tongues. So you will still need to kind of lift and pull up on the frame housing the fuse. It requires some patience and finesse. Remove the crimped-on wires, and change the fuse.
Of the two smaller replacement fuses that came with the kit, there was one marked for a gas dryer and another for electric. (The big fuse was good for both.)
Then start putting it all back together. Took me two hours in all. But now that I have done it once, it would hopefully take me only 30 mins. now.
Finally, my replacement instructions suggested cleaning out your machine and removing the lint and other burdens which probably overloaded the fuse in the first place. So I bought one of those specialized lint brushes to clean out the trap and the exhaust hose and vent.

I have a Frigidaire Dryer FEQ332ES0 that will not start unless I hold the pushbutton in inside the door and give the drum a stout spin. I will kick in and then run but door is open, not good


You have a shorted motor. The motor has an open start winding. If you press the door switch and then turn the dryer drum and if this gets it to start, that's the problem.

Need to know which color wire goes to which connector on the timer. frigidaire wiring diagrams


Hi garyab9ss, I appreciate your post!

It appears your inquiry is listed under Frigidaire Electric dryer and you need the wiring diagram. May I have the model number please? You can typically locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the upper front, as you open the door or on the right/left edge on the inside of the door. Also, please provide me the timer part number that you have in hand. With this information I can deliver the correct material to you. Thank you! - Z

Hi, my FEQ332ES0 stopped starting up (after a day of no use), and it makes a faint buzz when I hit the start switch. The tumbler light works, and I OHM'd out the thermal limiter and it looks fine. Any...

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.

High efficency dryer won't spin-Frigidaire


Try this. Set the timer. Open the door, press and hold the light switch. Rotate the drum by hand then while still holding the light switch turn on the dryer. If it starts then clos the door while removing your finger quickly. If this problem persists it could be the starter on your motor.

Moisture in dryer


you have a clogged vent, somehow your vent has become clogged either with in the hose, or where it exits the house, the moisture being removed from the wet clothes is not leaving the unit. CHECK YOUR VENTING POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD!!!!!
