Question about Frigidaire Affinity 5.8 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Electric Dryer
My dryer suddenly stopped working. Once I close the door, I am able to choose the setting. When I then go to pust the start button, I get a double beep and "dr" shows up on the display. I must say that the door was loose for a long time, and we were slamming it to get it to shut tightly. The last time it worked and I opened it, there was a spark that came from the door. Lastly, we already reversed the door. Please let me know you thoughts and if it may be a problem I can fix. If I can't fix it, what is the best way to present it to the repair man so he doesn't try to rip me off.
Many of the washers and dryers that use digital control have door switches. A non-working (damaged) door switch will prevent the appliance from working. Look up online for a manual for your appliance and see what they show for your unit. If you get the diagram on how to dismantle it to replace the switch you can see if you think you can handle that task.
Then look online for the parts, and compare the cost with your local suppliers.
I just replaced such a switch for a friend. The switch cost locally was $109, but I found a new one online for $45. It took about an hour to change out the old for the new.

SOURCE: Error code DR
Pull the tech sheet out of the dryer ( behind the lower front access panal ). The lights flashing are trying to tell you a fault code.
MODEL DIFFERENCES: • Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
READING ERROR CODES 1. Position cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.
On better model dryers, the error code will appear in the digital display. On good models, the five indicator lights of
Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid, and Clean Lint Filter Spin will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code
and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator
light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting
the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the
START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START indicator light start
flashing at the same time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine.
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. If this code would appear on a dryer in
the Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times.
Troubleshoot problem by using chart below.
To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button. To clear code, press the Select button.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

You have a couple different options. One is to check the timer and make sure that it is working correctly. Second thing is to check the computer and the fusees to make sure all is well.

I just ran the Function test sequence which is in the Dryer Tech Data Sheet (this sheet is inside the dryer at the lower right side) and after that the machine is working. I hope this can solve your problems too.
