Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.
Can you re-start the dryer right away when it stops? Or do you need to wait a bit
need to wait a few minutes
OK so this is a common problem and it means that your dryer power cord isn't hooked up correctly. The motor is getting 220 volts instead of the 110 volts it needs. You need to check the power cord and make sure the neutral wire goes to the center post and the 2 outside posts have 110 volts between the outside post and the center post as well as 220 volts between the two outside posts.
o.k will try to replug it
unplugged the dryer then plugged it back in again no change. stopped again
No, I didn't say you need to unplug the dryer and plug it back in----the power cord isn't connected correctly. The wiring from your power cord needs to be changed up.
brand new dryer and cord needs to be changed?
the dryer doesn't come with a cord. That is connected by an installer or yourself.
And whoever did it apparently did it incorrectly
cord came connected to dryer from frigidaire
Is this a gas dryer? If it's electric, then it did not someone installed it
electric clothes dryer and came out of box with cord attached
regardless---it's still connected incorrectly or your outlet is wired wrong. There is no other answer.
outlet worked before. so guess cord is done wrong
Aye, then I would say that's the case as well.
Yes, you will
