SOURCE: Kenmore Elite H3 Dryer taking longer than normal to dry clothes

EVEN THOUGH THERE IS WARM AIR COMING OUT THE EXHAUST, IT STILL MAY HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE DUCT WORK. DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER FOR ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF IT DRYS THE CLOTHES O.K., YOU HAVE A RESRICTION SOMEWHERE IN THE EXHAUST.

NOTE: DO NOT USE VINYL OR PLASTIC DUCTING. VINYL IS NOT U.L. APPROVED. PLASTIC PVC WILL ALLOW CONDENSATION TO PUDDLE INSIDE THE PIPE CAUSING A
COMPLETE RESTRICTION.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty Dryer 11063012101 Takes Forever to Dry

I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out

FIX

1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out



2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall

3 pull dryer out from wall

4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall

4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer

5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint

6 inspect inside flex line for any lint

7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint

8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc

9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT

10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business

Good Luck

SOURCE: Dryer cuts off before clothes are dry.

Might be the thermal protector in the motor that is shutting down the dryer, if motor overheats this is what will happen. Make sure there is no lint build up around the motor, if not the motor is bad. does the dryer start right away after shutting off or do you have to wait? If you have to wait the motor is bad.

Keep getting "AF" code even after cleaning and washing lint trap and cleaning all hoses from back of unit all the way to out of house.


your description is common when there is a blockage , or blower not moving, I would take it apart again and reassemble to make sure everything is put together correctly.

Dryer takes forever to dry even after i cleaned the vents out


don't forget the exhaust tube coming from the back of the dryer and leaving the building. those can get pretty restricted with lint. Another place to look is inside the cabinet for lint. Getting these cleaned regularly can prevent a fire.

Dryer not drying-the sceen has af flashing please help..whirlpool cabrio


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.



Thanks for using FixYa.

When I turn the Dryer on there is the letters AF start flashing it is running and drys the close but it takes a lot longer than it did when I got it.


I've seen the AF code twice now on my Whirlpool Cabriolet Dryer (wed6400sw1). The first time, we thought it stood for "Auto Fluff", a cycle to keep the clothes wrinkle free...We soon realized the dryer was getting a lot hotter than it ever did before and until I checked the vent stack from the roof, I had no idea that the pipe was blocked with a build-up of lint. I cleaned the pipe from top to bottom by taking it apart wherever I could using a vacuum and every hose extension I could get my hands on. I duct taped these together so I didn't drop it somewhere that I couldn't reach!

The second time we saw the AF code was this weekend. First, I verified the vent pipe was not clogged again. (a good quick test for this is to disconnect it from the back of the dryer and run it unconnected to see if the AF code fires) After some online research, I started taking it apart the back to maybe replace the thermistor or the thermal fuse shown above.

I noticed an odd little piece of ceramic tubing had fallen down to the base of the dryer pan. So I decided to take the heater core apart to have a look. Sure enough, I found my problem. My dryer has two separate groups of springy looking heater wire. You can see that part here as well as the little tube I found. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-element-item-number-ap3953732.aspx It turns out that ceramic tube is an insulator allowing for the two heating elements to exist without touching since they are both powered from the same starting wire point.

Well, my AF code (which is really just telling you the dryer is getting too hot) was being created due to a broken wire which caused the two units to fuse together. It must have been getting really hot. It also had welded itself to the metal backing structure.

I carefully removed the broken wires from the heater element and reassembled to test. Sure enough, it works good again and no AF code, but I bet it doesn't heat as much since I removed one half of the element. I'm going to pick up a replacement heater element tomorrow from the local parts store to restore it like new.

Hope this helps someone!

Whirlpool dryer Cabrio 6 months old. message on screen is "AF" what does that mean?


Code AF means the air flow is blocked.
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

On the screen of my dryer where it tells me how long I have till the cloths are dry keeps flashing AF and it takes me all day to dry one load of cloths.


The AF stands for Low airflow condition. We had it too. Check the lint trap first as it is the easiest. Then check the dryer hose ductwork make sure its not crushed or blocked. You may need to clean the line from the outside too.

Why is my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer saying AF instead of the Mins.?


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


According to the manual....

"AF (low airflow condition):
The dryer will continue to run when this diagnostic code is present. Press any key to clear the code from the display and return to the estimated time remaining.

Try the following:

1. Clean lint screen.

2. Check to see if the vent run from the dryer to the wall is crushed or kinked.

3. Confirm the vent run from the dryer to the wall is free of lint and debris.

4. Confirm the exterior vent exhaust hood is free of lint and debris.

5. Confirm your vent system falls within the recommended run length and number of elbows for the type of vent you are using.

6. Select a Timed Dry heated cycle, and restart the dryer.

7. If the message persists, have your entire home venting run cleaned."


Please get back to us if you have any further query.


Have a nice day.
