Dryer takes forever to dry even after i cleaned the vents out


don't forget the exhaust tube coming from the back of the dryer and leaving the building. those can get pretty restricted with lint. Another place to look is inside the cabinet for lint. Getting these cleaned regularly can prevent a fire.

Dryer not drying-the sceen has af flashing please help..whirlpool cabrio


An "AF" code means there is a low airflow condition and the clothes may not dry properly. To remedy this, check to make sure the lint screen is cleaned off and that there is no blockage in either the vent duct that runs from the dryer to the wall or the vent hood on the exterior of the house.



Thanks for using FixYa.

Whirlpool dryer Cabrio 6 months old. message on screen is "AF" what does that mean?


Code AF means the air flow is blocked.
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

On the screen of my dryer where it tells me how long I have till the cloths are dry keeps flashing AF and it takes me all day to dry one load of cloths.


The AF stands for Low airflow condition. We had it too. Check the lint trap first as it is the easiest. Then check the dryer hose ductwork make sure its not crushed or blocked. You may need to clean the line from the outside too.

What does AF error mean on Cabrio electric dryer


AF on your Cabrio means the Air Flow is being obstructed. Make sure the vent is secure and free of debris at the back of the appliance. Also ensure there is no obstruction where it is vented outside of your home. Lastly, make sure the lint trap is clean. Your dryer will still run normally, but it's best to go through your checklist so no further issues arise.

Why is my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer saying AF instead of the Mins.?


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


According to the manual....

"AF (low airflow condition):
The dryer will continue to run when this diagnostic code is present. Press any key to clear the code from the display and return to the estimated time remaining.

Try the following:

1. Clean lint screen.

2. Check to see if the vent run from the dryer to the wall is crushed or kinked.

3. Confirm the vent run from the dryer to the wall is free of lint and debris.

4. Confirm the exterior vent exhaust hood is free of lint and debris.

5. Confirm your vent system falls within the recommended run length and number of elbows for the type of vent you are using.

6. Select a Timed Dry heated cycle, and restart the dryer.

7. If the message persists, have your entire home venting run cleaned."


Please get back to us if you have any further query.


Have a nice day.

I have a Wirlpool cabrio dryer in it's "time remaining" says "AF" the clothes aren't drying. and the lent trap is collecting lint on the wrong side


This is an Air Flow warning error and you should check that the filter is clean and free of lint etc. Make sure it goes back in place correctly. Also check that the vent hose is not kinked or twisted or obstructed and any outside flap is opening correctly. It is well worth taking the outside flap or taking off the vent hose altogether and making sure it is clear of lint, fibres etc and this will cause the AF error.

AF flashing on our Whirpool Cabrio Dryer.


Hi Terry,

AF flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not
obstructed.
I suspect it's the vent connecting the dryer to the wall or the vent pipe in the wall to the outside. Without moving your dryer, look behind it to see if the flex duct is crushed or pinched. If it is, it's pinching off your air flow, too. Pull the dryer out straighten or replace the hose (you can get vent hose at Home Depot, Lowes or Ace Hardware) then slide the dryer back being careful to keep it about 8" from the wall (8" is the recommended distance from the back of the dryer to the wall, btw).
If the flex vent is NOT pinched off, then you should call a chimney sweep to come out and clean the vent pipe that's in the wall.

*Note---> If you want to test this diagnosis to verify it, just disconnect the flex hose from the wall and run a load of clothes. The error code should not reappear.
