Frigidaire error code e56

My dryer isn't heating, and will only run for about 10 minutes before shutting off and all three lights above start button blink. I got this error code e56 or e5b. I am unsure as to what other steps I need to take. The model number is AEQ8000FEO.

SOURCE: My Frigidaire Dryer (AEQ6000ES2) won't heat. Did

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the dryer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. Over the years, I haven't had much trouble with my dryers. The E56 error code means high motor current. To help you find out why, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair information on dryers and other appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. You can probably verify the meaning of the error code there. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

SOURCE: Hi I have a dryer

It sounds like the hi-limit thermostat. For your dryer that would be Frigidaire part number 5303281113 shown below. The part is located behind the drum. You will need to take the back off of the unit to access the part. Sears carries the part.

  1. Take the back cover off of the dryer
  2. locate the part
  3. unplug one of the two wires from the old part
  4. plug that wire into the same post on the new part
  5. unplug the remaining wire from the old part
  6. plug the other wire into the new part
  7. unfasten and remove the old thermostat (with no wires)
  8. fasten the new part (with wires) into the old parts place
  9. run the dryer to see if the fix works
  10. replace the back cover on the dryer.
Steps 3 through 6 above insures that you get the two wires installed correctly. ddmagee57.jpg

What does error code E56 mean?


That error is an E5b error. This indicates a problem with the heating element, the thermistor or the control board. You'll need to unplug the unit and access the wiring. Inspect the heating coil for breaks. Then test the voltage across the element (should see the line voltage) and check the resistance at the thermistor (should be ~50000 Ohms in a room temperature environment). If the above are okay, your control board is probably bad.

If you post a comment with the model number, I may be able to point you the appropriate parts. If your dryer is under warranty, contact Frigidaire.

I hope this helps.

Why is my affinity dryer not heating and showing error code 56


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# ATF7000ES, is not heating and showing an error code 56. The E56 code means there is high motor current, meaning it is possible something is going on with the motor. The other possibility is this is a false error code. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My frigidaire dryer GLEQ2152ES0 runs but no heat ?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are receiving an "AD" error code on your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLEQ2152ES0. I also see that your dryer is not heating. The "AD" code states that your appliance is in an auto dry cycle. I suggest resetting your dryer, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

Frigidaire AEQ8700FGO dryer will run (and heat) for about 30 to 60 seconds then stop. 3 lights above start button will flash rapidly. Depressing cancel and start buttons at same time will not work for...


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace it

Frigidare AEQ600es2 does not heat. Reports error code E68, but all buttons seem to work.


You will nee The error code E68 is a stuck button error code. I recommend checking each button to make sure it loose in the plastic console. The button should rock side to side a little bit. If all the buttons are loose you can try to reset the unit control by unplugging the dryer for two minutes. If the error code comes back you will need to replace the unit control.
