Question about Kenmore 67082 Electric Dryer
Was getting the AF signal at first but have cleaned the lint screen, taken the back off and cleaned out all lint, checked all vent lines which were clear. Now the AF is gone but its taking 2 cycles of drying time to dry one load and their not completely dry....

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

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
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

SOURCE: Dryer not heating
THE PROBLEM IS YOUR WALL VENT CLOGGED OR THE BACK OF THE DRYER VENT HOLE IS CLOGGED,IT KEEPS THE MOIST HOT AIR IN THE DRYER SO YOUR CLOTHS TAKE FOREVER TO DRY,THEY MUST BE CLEARED FOR THE DRYER TO WORK AGAIN-MIKE

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.

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.
