I wonder if this is the new-fangled reversing dryer made by Fisher-Paykel sold under the Frigidaire label. Are you downunder, mate?

If true, then this is not, cannot be a reversing dryer.  What's all this about "two-way drum" and "rotate in the opposite direction?"

You probably have a motor that's seen better days and is on its way to the great appliance parts dump in the sky.  :angel:

Sorry, But have to tell our Grand Master Samurai, you mistaken man!!!!

Frigidaire built one of their contraptions, the standard Frigidaire/Westinghouse style dryer but with special idler pulley and reversing circuit board.

Every remember seeing the idler pulley with two pulleys on it in the parts books, that's the one special Frigidaire deal.

Sounds like you have a motor going out or the reversing circuit board could be causing the problem.

The only one I've worked on was just like yours and had same kind of problem, thought I had found the problem with a overheated/burnt motor wiring coming off the reversing board, cleaned and repaired contacts and dryer worked fine for me.

Luckly this was for a friend and it started to do the same thing in no time at all, he just dumped the dryer and purchased a new one so I didn't have to beat my head over that problem again.

Here's the correct model# FSE747GES1, Alan had inserted and extra "C" in there causing it to be a bad model#.

If you've never seen one Samurai, here's the picture of the idler pulley motor setup CLICK HERE

Well, like I always say: garbage in, garbage out. A valid model number at the outset would have saved a lot of wasted time and keystrokes. :X

Ran into those as well, got one brand new with no heat, harness wrongly wired from the Friggidaire factory!

O leader, you may be doing the humble grasshopper a disservice....possibly the extra 'C' as compared to what Willie found is for Canada?

Good point, Maddest of the Mad. If this is the case, then apologies to our intrepid grasshopper, who so boldly ventured into this den of appliance repair debauchery.

Does your dryer have a capacitor? A lot of washers and dryers have a start capacitor for the motor, as it takes a lot more current to get them moving with a full load of clothes.

Put your ohm meter on X100 and out the leads on the terminals of the capacitor, then reverse the leads 2-3 times, the needle should go up and back down.  If the needle does not move it is dead, if it goes to the right and stays there it is shorted.

Personally, I can't remember ever seeing a capacitor on any dryers I've worked on, (but maybe used on the Canada models?)
