The heater chamber is probably oocated in the back side of the dryer on this model on the lower side. If not on the lower side, it should be right next to the drum.

Frigidaire affinity dryer code ad


Hey Cindy, thanks for your submission!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "ad". The "ad" error code will display with the "Auto Dry" cycle has been selected. If you did not select the auto dry cycle I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. Once power has been restored to the dryer and if the error code is still persistent you may need to have a replacement control panel or wiring harness installed. I would recommend having electrical parts replaced by a professional technician this will prevent any personal injury. Best of luck! -Matt

Error code Ad


Hello Rachael, thank you for your inquiry!

Typically error code AD indicates that the Auto Dry option has been selected. Typically when using no heat in any Auto Dry cycle will result in long drying times and/or wet loads at the end of cycle. I would suggest selecting another option or resetting your dryer. You may either unplug it or flip the household breaker off for approximately ten minutes. Turn your dryer on then select a normal cycle. Your appliance should resume normal operations. If this problem persists, your dryer may possibly have a faulty heating element, blower assembly or a communication problem with the control panel. This is not a normal DIY job. You may want to connect with a local servicer to determine the exact diagnosis. I hope this helps explain the error code you are receiving.

I have an electric dryer with error code EA4. What does that mean?


An EA4 code can mean that the heating element is bad. (It's actually a time-out error; the unit did not begin to heat up in a timely fashion.) If you noticed the dryer getting hotter in those ten minutes, then the temperature sensor in the dryer may be faulty.

With the heating element, sometimes the element will have an obvious broken wire. The other diagnostic test is to use a volt meter and check for continuity in the wiring (resistance). Note: make sure the dryer is unplugged when you access the wiring.

I hope this helps.

My hotpoint waher dryer edd960 keeps flashing f13 on cuts out drying half way through, what is the problem and can i fix it myself? if not how much it cost ish? thanks


Do u want to resolve the f-13 fault code ON HOTPOINT WD machines
Fix the fault . It is a tricky job but the heater thermostat switch has tripped as it senses something burning. Probably a little bit of fluff on the heater element inside the heater unit.. There are 2 switches on top of this heater unit. One where the 2 blue wires go on the top left of the 3rd picture and the other which has a tall black wire connector on shown in the middle of the 3rd picture. Remove that connector and undo the holding screw . You can then reset the switch. The switch is a small circular switch hidden beneather the connector on the photos. This thermostat switch has a yellow. red dot ontop of it. If you use a small pin or needle and press into that dot you will hear it tick back into place. you have reset the switch now. You will probably need to clean the inside of the heater element unit to get rid of the fluff particles or it will keep switching off. To take this apart you will need a set of Star screwdrivers. Its a bit tricky but you will be able to undo the star screws and take them all out. I will add some photos to show you the unit apart. You can see the build up of fluff on the photos i have added from my hotpoint WD860 heater unit. This is a tricky job and takes about an hour due to the screw being awkward to take off and put on again but mine hasnt faulted for 2 years since sorting it out. You can buy a new Thermostat switch which is about 10 pounds sterling from Hotpoint or other spares stores.

Full cycle does not get clothes dry


HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

Machine keeps tripping the fuse at the fuse box - WD61 Aquarius Hotpoint


I believe the problem is in the fus(breaker). I would say that it is the thermal fuse in the machine but it usually goes out before the breaker does. The breaker has gotten weak over the years. You have a hi limit on the machine as well but I doubt this is it. Let me know how you do.

I have a hotpoint ctd80 showing error f13, have cleaned all the filters, and cleared the water and still it doesnt clear error on the low heat setting


F13 indicates the rear thermistor is open/short circuit, this is part of the heater circuit. it is akin to a thermostat, but there is more than one!!
Hotoint recommend you call an engineer..
I am assuming that this is a lcd tumble dryer.
Plz leave feedback.

E-2 error code on whirlpool duet dryer


“E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.

The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
and off to maintain the desired temperature.
1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
supply connected.
2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
the lint screen is clean.
3. Close the dryer door.
4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
and Start.
5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
shorted or open. Check the wire connections
at the thermistor or the machine
control electronics board. If wiring checks
okay, replace the thermistor.
6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
heat using the More Time or Less Time
pushbuttons.
