    You will need an ohmmeter to test the sensor. I have replaced some of those exact units already for being open (no resistance). You will have to remove the front of the dryer to axcess the sensor. To have a tech repair it would run you here in Florida 1hr $75 lbr and the part around 40. If there was no other servicing needed. especially if you cn have him make sure he has a thermistor (sensor) with him...

    A solved rating is great motivation to continue giving priceless advise........

My dryer turns off within few minutes of turning on. i get error code 55. what does that mean?


google: frigidaire dryer "put model here" error code 55. I couldn't find anything. So there's more to the error code than 55, or it is model perhaps year dependant.

How do i find out what the frigidaire gallery series dryer error messages are


Hello Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

To get the error code your dryer may be experiencing, attempt the following:

Wake your dryer by pressing any button except for CANCEL.

Press and hold the "CANCEL" and "START PAUSE" buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to show the error recorder code your dryer may have. The error code normally appears in the display as an E followed by two numbers.

If your dryer shoes, E00 it indicates no failure code was detected.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if you receive an error and if further troubleshooting is needed.

Thank you!

Kenmore 110.6807 Dryer won't run properly. In diagnostic mode, everything checks out, Dryer runs and heats. Getting F2 error in normal and diagnostic modes. I disconnected P5 and checked the switches on...


One of the first things to do when a F2 error code appears is to perform a simple reset. To do this, turn the dryer off and disconnect power to the dryer. Wait 30 seconds to one minute, restore power and turn the dryer on. Choose a new dryer cycle and push "Start" to begin. If the error code does not return to the display, the reset was successful and no further action is necessary. Hope this helps.

The washer is giving a code of "F2" & not draining properly.. any idea?


This code indicates a pump issue. First, remove and clean the filter. Then you need to check out the pump.

Whirlpool F2 = Long Drain error code.
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is flashed.
Press, PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the "F2 error code" will be displayed.

Potential Causes:
(1) Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
(2) Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
(3) Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

My Maytag wall oven CWE9000ACB is giving me a fault code F2.


The F2 fault code is usually for a out of limit tempature reading due to a faulty temp probe or excessive temp during clean cycle with door unlocked. If you have disconnected the power for over 10 minutes and the error keeps coming back then you will need to test the tempature probe to see if it is defective. Test with a OHM meter and at room tempature most probes should read around 1100-1300 ohms. if the reading is way off or open then replace the tempature probe.

[email protected] error code,


F02 - Long Drain (Drain Exceeds 8 Minutes) - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code. Note: You may see a "SUD" error code appear first during this failure. This should change to the F02 error code after a few minutes. Proceed by checking the drain hoses for proper connection and kinks. Unplug unit and disconnect power. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational with no debris or blockage. Reconnect power and plug unit in. If problem has not been corrected, replace the pump.
