Question about Whirlpool Dryers
We just bought the dryer and it had the initals af it unclogged itself but now my husband tried to turn on the dryer and it has power but the drum or the heat is not coming on any suggestions?
If it is an electric dryer it has a 220 plug. the problem is in your wiring either the "pig tail" or wire that hooks up to the dryer is hooked up backwards. or your plug has power but only to one side of the plug. i know it sounds funny but its true. there are three holes on the outlet. the one closest to the middle is the ground and the other two are hot. if your hubby is a mr fix it he should have a multi meter set it to "ac 250" or "ac 500"and check both sides of the outlet, make sure leads on the meter are plugged into the right holes on the meter, or it could be a painful mistake! if you only have power on one side you found the problem. turn the power to the dryer off. if you dont know which breaker it is try turning the dryer on, then go to the panel and turn off the breakers that say 30 amp off and on until you hear the dryer turn off. then take the cover off of the outlet, you might find a burnt wire ,most likely the red one. if you feel confident enough you might be able to find enough slack in the wall to rewire it. cut off a few inches and rewire it like it was. and presto instant heat in your dryer

Hi , All tumble dryers because of there nature have a very sesative (spelling) thermal cutout on the dryers heater matrix ,When the machine clogges up with dust the temperature increases inside the machine to such a level the thermal fuse blows , On some machines where the dryer elememt is theres a resetable cutout , (push the pin in) but on most once its tripped you have to buy another element assembly , ( there around £40).and while the machine is in bits all the dust has to be cleaned out? If your good with a multimeter you could test the circuit on the heater , youll get no reading if the fuse is busted.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.
AF is an error that will flash if a restricted air flow is sensed by the dryer control. If three consecutive cycles have low airflow the control will flash the AF error.
The AF error code can be cleared by pressing the Drying Temp pad for 5 seconds while in stand-by mode. AF will flash in the display for 1 second then "on" will appear in the display. If you press Drying Temp again and "of" will appear in the display indicating the AF error display has been turned off. Try this procedure and see if the "of" error goes away. If the "of" came up in the display by itself then the keypad may be stuck. However After cleaning the dryer's lint screen, ensure that the exterior exhaust hood connected to the dryer is unblocked, ensure that the vent connecting the dryer to the wall is clear and see that the vent is cleaned professionally.
Please get back to us if you have any further query.
