Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer switch is clicking but not turning machine on. FSE747GES0

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is not working properly. 

The clicking you are hearing is probably the relay 
closing on the control board to apply voltage to the motor. Since the dryer will not start, you could have a blown thermal fuse or a broken drive belt.

To test the fuse, pull one wire off (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse. The fuse should measure near zero ohms (continuity) if it is good. If it measures infinite resistance (open) then it is blown and will need to be replaced. To check for proper motor run, you can tape the two wires for the thermal fuse together with electrical tape to insulate them. Reassemble the dryer and see if the motor runs. If it does, then the thermal fuse is confirmed as the failed component that was preventing the dryer from running. 

NOTE
 
: Do not leave this fuse bypassed and continue to run the dryer. It will need to be replaced. It is an important safety feature of the dryer.

It can be very frustrating when your old dryer begins to malfunction and not start. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit.

Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

A:

If the dryer doesn't run the usual suspect would be the thermal limiter/fuse. It can be checked with a meter by removing the top panel. Even something as simple as a door switch can prevent the dryer from running. With the thermal limiter and door switch you would not normally hear any sound. If a third hand is available try pushing the start button and give the tub a turn at the same time. Does the tub turn freely? A service call and even a simple repair would likely be in the $150 dollar range. The motor would be the most serious problem since the motor is no longer available. If you have a meter and feel comfortable using it then checking the thermal limiter would be worth a try. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

Why does my Frigidaire model FSE747GES0 dryer not restart after changing tumble directions?

A:

From your description of the problem the most likely cause of this problem is the motor control board part number 131489900.

Once the motor is started the start switch is no longer used and the motor reversing directions is controlled by the motor control board.

The motor control board is the most likely cause of this problem and I recommend you change it. It is located in the console and can be accessed by raising the top. Since the problem is intermittent it may be a loose connection at the control or the motor.

I hope this information helps to resolve your problem but if you have any other questions then submit another question with additional details for further assistance with this problem.
