The dryer has stopped working with a DR display. Any buttons pushed give the DR code and does not start. I have checked connections and replaced power cord for dryer which had one prong partly melted. Is the control board faulty or something else? Thanks.
Answer Hello Tony,
This is the fault that will come up if the door is open when you try to start the unit. I would check the wires to the door switch 134813601 to make sure they are connected. If they are, you can test the door switch with a test meter. If it tests good, and the harness looks good, the control probably has a fault. Try unplugging the unit for 30 minutes. This should reset the microprocessor back to factory default. If this doesn't produce proper results, the control 134557201 will require replacement.
One note, if the dryer cord had a burned prong, the receptacle was the cause. A loose receptacle can be a fire hazard. I would definitely have the receptacle replaced.
My dryer works fine, but it's making a loud buzzing noise. I took it apart, cleaned it, blew it out, and oiled the idler wheel. When I put it back, it did the same thing.
Answer Hello Kenneth,
First off, a wet lubricant should never be used inside the cabinet of a dryer because lint will stick to the wet lubricant and draw this lint into the bushing. This will cause it to fail sooner than if it were not lubricated at all. I would first check the rear drum support bearing 5303281153, (this part comes with it's own grease), and in the blower wheel 131775600 for any debris. Also, dry up the wet lubricant on the idler pulley and if you want to lubricate it, use baby powder or corn starch. Don't use graphite because if it gets into the load, it will stain clothing.
The last thing that should be checked is the front glides, (takes two), 137513300, and felt 5303937182. If the felt seal and glides are worn, the front of the drum will droop down and cause the drum to contact where it shouldn't and this can cause odd noises.
My dryer run for about 5mins and stop, in the led window a 15min stay on.
Answer Hello Al. If the unit has to cool down before it will start again, you will need to replace the motor on the unit. It sounds like the motor is bad.
My dryer gives beep every several minutes. Sometimes it runs ok, a few times all lights were on and it could not be not be changed ?
Answer Hi Lakjak. I would use the digital capacitor Tester / Volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in repair. Make sure the unit gets the proper 240 vac at the terminal block. Also correct 120 vac between the neutral (middle) terminal and each side terminal. Make sure that the vent system is not kinked and no sags creating clogs and restricitons. Then look at the outside vent cap and make sure the cap opens and closes without restriction. Clean all the lint there 4-5 x per year. Use the supplied diagnostic sheet supplied in the unit cabinet packet or in the control panel to tell you @ the beeps. Make sure the door switch # 134813601 closes properly and stays locked always during run time. Thank you.
I just found that the dryer runs on no heat setting.
Answer Hello John. If the dryer runs on some of the setting and not on others, the control board 134523200 is bad on the unit.
How do I take the plastic cover to the control panel off the front of the dryer?
Answer Hello Babette. Unplug the unit and remove the screws on the back of the top panel securing the panel to the cabinet. Then slide the top panel off the dryer and remove it. Next, remove the screws along the top of the control panel and unsnap it from the cabinet. Now you can access the control board 134523200. Hope this helps.
Dryer does not function, loud clicking noise from control panel when start put is pushed, timer actually starts to count down.
Looking to interpret following error codes: E9E, E68, & E56
Answer Hi Bernie. 9/beeps E9E low voltage. Press cancel. 6 beeps/ E68 push button does not function. Button held too long of wedged close in the control panel (stuck Button). The E5B is the E 58. No Heat. The Control board is part # 134523200. Thermistor is part # 134587700. Igniter is part # 134393700. Let us know if we can assist you further. Thank you.
Error code E9E. Can I replace the control board myself? Is it fairly self explanatory to follow with instructions? It appears that this a common problem with this model. It made the top of my dryer get so hot, that had I not been home, I believe it would have caught the house on fire. If this is a voltage problem with the control panel, should this not be a problem for Frigidaire to take care of? Please advise on all. Thanks
Answer Hi Norma.It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. Hope this helps.
Also, the thermister should be replaced. It will stick-on and overheat the dryer as well . This part # is 134587700. This part is on front of the blower housing under the inner drum. Thank you.
