The dryer tumbles, but no heat is coming out. Do I need a new element?
Answer Hello Janette. First check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. If so, then test the element and thermal fuses. You will perform all these test with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. The fuses and element should read closed for continuity. If either one of these are open, replace that part. Hope this helps.

we dry 2 loads & it stop working & it won't start again . MODEL # LCE702AWW2 FRIGIDAIRE STACK /DRYER ON TOP & WASHER ON BOTTOM . PLEASE HELP ? BEFORE IT STOPED, A FEW WEEKS BACK IT WAS MAKING A STRANGE NOISE , BUT IT WAS GETTING RED HOT ON NORMAL DRYING AND WORKING.
Answer Hello Sherman, You will need to test and see if the thermal fuses, and the door switch is good. You can test these with a multi-meter. They should read closed or 0 for continuity. Also check the bearings, front and rear, and see if they are worn causing the noise you are having. Hope this helps.

We have the Frigidaire stacked washer/dryer unit and our dryer has not been heating properly for quite some time. It heats up and it will dry the clothes but it takes at least two dryer cycles to do so, which totals about 200 minutes to dry one load of clothes. I think the heating element might need to be replaced, but I am not sure if that is correct or exactly how to replace it. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
Answer Hello Shannon,
If the unit is heating the element is fine for now. You see, the most important part of the dryer isn't even part of the dryer. The heat does not dry the clothes but is an assistance to the air flow. It helps to evaporate the moisture and the air flow carries the moisture away from the clothes. Anytime there is a complaint of dry time, the exhaust is always the culprit. The faster the dryer can get rid of the moisture, the faster the clothes are dry. So basically, the shorter and straighter the exhaust duct is, the lower the electric bill, the longer the dryer will last, and the shorter the dry time. The exhaust should be checked for clogs and/or crimps. A full four inch diameter duct is necessary all the way to outside for the unit to operate efficiently. Flexible ducting is not recommended by any of the manufacturers.
We get no heat. It tumbles but no heat.
Answer Hello Bob. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power.

Frigidaire stack dryer trouble, I replaced a bad heat element then returned to power and dryer wont roll or heat....HELP
Answer Hello Rodney. You will need to take the unit apart and check the door switch and make sure you hooked it back up and it is good on the unit. Also, double check all your wiring inside the dryer.
The dryer quit producing heat. Would it be the heat element or heat baffles or something else?
Answer Hello Max. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity.
