What part do we need to replace on our dryer?
« on: August 08, 2012, 08:00:53 AM »
Frigidaire Dryer Model Number: FASG7073LW0

We are trying to determine the correct part that needs to be replaced on our dryer. It was in the middle of a cycle and it stopped. When we opened the dryer door the light did not come on and the display said "Call Service", we canceled the message and tried to start the cycle again and it says "Door Open". We tried opening and closing the door and also unplugging the dryer and re-plugging it back in and every time we attempt to "Start" a cycle it keeps saying "Door Open".

We are wondering if it is the switch that needs to be replaced or if it is an electrically issue and if so what part would it be that needs to be replaced?

Ohm out your door switch. That way you eliminate that as a possible problem. If that's not the problem, you should find a tech sheet on dryer some where. Put unit into diagnostic mode and check.

Here is a copy of the tech sheet for your model dryer in case you can't locate yours.

Door switch seems likely to be it on this dryer.
