Probrably an Air Flow issue. Check the vent outside to see if your getting strong air flow, should blow pretty hard. Also check to see if the exhaust duct behind the dryer is crushed at all. Thanks Dave www.washermd.com

The letters AF come on. what does this mean? air filter problem? it is not drying.


An "AF" code means there is a low airflow condition and the clothes may not dry properly. To remedy this, check to make sure the lint screen is cleaned off and that there is no blockage in either the vent duct that runs from the dryer to the wall or the vent hood on the exterior of the house.

My duet dryer's door will pop while drying and then the door is not shut tightly. The door never completely opens just not shut tight and the light comes on in it. When this happens the dryer quits, and...


We had the same problem and surprised how rampant the issue was after referring to the internet reviews / troubleshooting, etc. The problem started after about 6 months and the solution came to me after much "headaching" over the problem. There were no 'codes' coming up just the door popping open during the cycle. I purchased a (2) twenty pack of 1/2" diamerter x 1/16" thick N42 Neo Earth Magnets and placed them along the top edge and bottom edge of the dryer opening. Instant fix in less than a minute. The thickness does not interfere with the door opening and the strength of the magnets is obvious. Hope this helps. Fix was less than $10 bucks and no service man, etc.

Whirlpool duet frontload dryer stops running after several minutes of drying. The door seems to pop out enough to cause it to shut off. There are no codes showing or anything. This is a brand new unit...


Try blocking something against the door to see if that really is the problem. Or wedge a piece of cardboard in the side of the door opening to hold it shut. If that "fixes" it, you probably have a worn latch from everyone opening it to look at it in the store. You should be able to get a new latch at www.appliancepartspros.com

Kemore Elite Oasis Dryer Error Code "AF?"


Problem solved! We read on here about someone else addressing the AF code by removing the back panel and fixing the pully that had come off. Belt was fine, with pully back in place dryer now works perfectly again. Thank you for saving us so much time and money!
