frigidaire dryer (front load) won't start
« on: October 18, 2009, 11:21:48 AM »

Frigidaire FEQ332ES Dryer. Doing laundry, finished 1 load, went to start new load, nothing. ??? One site mentioned thermal fuse/limiter? What, where, how? I don't mind tearing into the dryer, any and all help is great. Thanks-Dride

right on, thank you very much. When I meant front load, I have the stackable front load washer and dryer. Will it matter, thermal limiter in same place?

Try manually turning the drum clockwise, about a half turn.  Had a tech come to fix mine that wouldn't start, and with just a turn of the drum it now works!

It may work for a while,however,whatever was binding it will resurface.
