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!

Frigidaire Gallery model GLEQ2170KSO dryer turns off within a minute.

Hello allisonarena - Try reprogramming the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or defective door switch. I would recommend connecting with an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further and to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

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 error code E9E indicates that low voltage is being detected at the control board of the dryer.

This could be caused by the following factors:

* The electrical power supply to the dryer is bad. Check the dryer outlet for proper voltage (120 volts AC).

* Unplug the dryer and check the wiring of the dryer outlet plug. A loose wire on the terminal block could cause this problem.

* If you are able to safely access the control board in the console, check the red wire that connects to the heater relay on the board.

(NOTE: The dryer should always be unplugged when accessing internal components.)
A loose wire or burned connection in this area could result in this error code.

* A failed control board could cause this problem.
