    I have teh exact same problem. It allows me to seltect the cycle, it displays the number of minutes and when I push the start butten, it beeps twice and the numbers start to flash. I tried unpluging it, but when I plugged it back in it showed a code of PF (power failure). I hit cancel and it went away. I hit the cycle and start and it beeped as before. The dryer is about 4-5 years old.



    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have the exact same problem. It allows me to select the cycle, it displays the number of minutes and when I push the start button, it beeps twice and the numbers start to flash. I tried unplugging it, but when I plugged it back in it showed no code? I hit the cycle and start and it beeped as before. I used the dryer a few minuets before and noticed the dryer light went out inside. i changed the bulb the filament was blown to Pices. I replaced the bulb and it still didn't come on. The un plug computer reset dosent work The dryer is about one year old.

    Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same problem with my HE3, my husband took out the switch that tells the dryer when the door is closed and messed with it. He put it back in and it works for now - he says we need a new one.

Becky843,
Huuum,at your service!

With an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems.
if they are not serious, or they are a temp glitch!




How old is the appliance?



If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

My fisher and paykel dryer ( mod# ED56 ) wont start, power is on


I had this same problem with my Dryer. It is making the few quick beeps because it thinks the door is still open. Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.
After i did this, i closed the door and my dryer started as normal.

Hello jmylymok,
Welcome to Fizya,

You said, you replaced burned out dryer bulb on Whirlpool GEW9250PW and now drum light won't shut off even with door closed. Dryer will not work but all panel lights function normally - UNTIL you press start. Dryer just beeps and doesn't work. When I tried the troubleshooting solutions, the error 6E comes up. What does this mean?

This sounds like the reason your bulb went out was more than just a bulb normally dying!
There is a short, or in that socked or the switch or it affected the the control panel too!!
This sounds like a hands on diagnoses job!

Let me know how it goes.
