It is not an error code but a project ID code and it appears when the Start button is pressed during the Diagnostic Mode. Redo the activation of the Diagnostic Mode then do not touch any button after "88" is displayed. Error codes will be displayed if there's any.

The Diagnostic Mode cannot be used to test a fault in the heating circuit when the dryer does not heat up. Actual test of the heating circuit components such as continuity testing or resistance reading is necessary to determine fault. Disconnect power then remove the front bottom panel to access the heater housing. Once the panel is off, test the continuity of the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat. You can simply bypass them if you have no tool for testing continuity. Join the wires of each together and insulate them properly then plug in and start the dryer. Replace both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. If not, take the heating element out and closely inspect it for any broken coil. Replace the heating element if it has broken coil part. Never attempt to repair the heating element, you have to replace it.

Duet model GEW9200L. What does code 08 indicate?


there is no such error code on this dryer, that is likely the time left on the display... If the dryer stopped at the 8 minute mark with no error, check the door switch because it can interrupt a cycle, but will result in no error... Did you try to start it again, what happened?

The filter is plugged on the drain system. Take the bottom panel off under the door and there is a plug. GET READY FOR LOTS OF WATER, have a wet and dry vacuum present. Take the drain plug off and remove all the debris that is in the unit too.

Machine powers up,,,than the whole machines powers down


Let's see if we can get it into diagnostic mode and check for any fault codes. Make sure the dryer is in standby mode, plugged in with all the indicators off. Select any button except the PAUSE/CANCEL button. PRESS/HOLD 3 SECONDS > RELEASE FOR 3 SECONDS > PRESS/HOLD 3 SECONDS > RELEASE FOR 3 SECONDS > PRESS/HOLD 3 SECONDS. If test mode was entered successfully all indicators will illuminate for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the two digit display. If there are no saved or active fault codes all indicators will momentarily turn off then stay on with 88 in the display. If there are any fault codes, the most recent one will alternately show F- and "XX " where XX is the fault code. and all the cycle indicators will flash. If you can't enter the test mode try a different button. Lets start there.

My dryer is stuck on "Control Lock"


See if you can get into the diagnostic mode. If not, you will need to replace the "user interface" on the machine. Here is a link to the part if you should need it.
ACTIVATING THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE 1. Make sure that the dryer is in the "Standby" mode (plugged in and all of the indicators are off). 2. Press the following control panel keypad sequence all within 5 seconds: More Time-Less Time-More Time- Less Time. 3. All indicators on the console should now be illuminated with "88" showing in the "Estimated Time Remaining" display, if this test mode has been entered successfully.
