Tip & How-To about Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

My Frigidaire Dryer is not heating anymore. Repair and testing for model FEX831CS0-FEX831CSO

Hi.

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.

Regards.

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

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.

need a belt diagram for figidaire dryer model number fex831cso


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.
