Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
Display reads 'Ad',
Check your breakers. Mine was doing the same thing, all of the 120v parts of the machine were working. (blower/drum motor/ lights) However the element wasn't coming on. Went to the breaker and found that one side of the 2 pole breaker was tripped. Turned both off and back on. Heater started working again.
When you set the dryer on settings such as normal or permanent press, it engages the various sensors that help the dryer to make the most efficient use of energy. Moisture sensor, heat sensor etc. (THAT IS WHAT TURNS ON YOUR AD SETTING) Normally it selects a time based on factory settings that it believes your load should be dried by. Say 50 minutes at Normal (high heat, normal) Every so often during the cycle, the machine will check the humidity sensor and the other sensors and try to see if the dryer is still on schedule. Sometimes it will determine that more time is needed, occasionally less time. While it calculates, it displays the Ad meaning that the machine is on auto dry. TO TURN OFF AUTO DRY, set it to a time setting instead of a DESCRIPTION setting.

When you put it on the "normal" setting it will bring in the dampness sensor into drying, "Ad" isn't an error code its saying that its sensing how much moisture is in the load you have in the dryer. Instead of using the "normal" setting use the time intervals (15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90) instead. I find the sensor doesn't totally work when on normal setting anyways.

In checking the manual, AD appears to refer to "Auto Dry" setting, meaning the dryer is sensing the dampness and adjusting the drying time automatically.

How did the AD setting become enabled? How to turn it off?
