    Question Dryer stops after 15 minutes; no heat; flashing lights

    Model Number: LEQ2152EE0
    Brand: Frigidaire

    My Frigidaire dryer will run for approximately 15 minutes. There is no heat while it is running. When it stops running the lights on the right side of the panel flash constantly and there are no codes displayed. I have cleaned the vent and lint traps. Any ideas on what is wrong? Thank you in advance for any advice.

    Would the board cause it not to heat as well?
    Thank you for your help.

    Yes, seen that happen many times.

    But I always first check the voltage and breaker to the dryer.

    Check your home breaker box to the dryer, I've seen 1 of the dual breakers trip and cause this.

    Installed board. Dryer runs full cycle now but no heat. Breaker is not tripped and there is good air flow. Would you replace the breaker first or look at the heating element?
    Thanks!

    Only way to know for sure is to use a volt meter and test your volts, did you do that?

    Hate to see you change an element and it still not work, only to find out it was the voltage thats the problem.

    Ok, just because you changed the breaker means nothing without verifying volts, I've seen new breakers still not produce 240 volts, due to either a bad neutral drop or wiring problems to the dryer outlet.

    But you can go ahead and look at your element, you may see a broken element wire. Lets just hope so.

    Use the repair manual I posted in post#2 to take the front off and drum out.

    Turn the breaker off first before opening it up.

    If a broken heating element wire isn't obvious, You would HAVE TO HAVE a volt/ohm meter to diagnose it, OR get a friend or family member that may have one.

    Here's the heating element assembly for your model you can order here:
