SOURCE: Error code PF

PF means Power Failure!
Unplug both units for 10 minutes, then plug them back in and try operating them. You may need an electrician to investigate why you are losing power to both units

SOURCE: My Frigidaire Electric Dryer keeps giving an error code

If your dryer is the same or similar to mine (Model AEQ6000ES2) then error E68 is a stuck key on the keypad. This may be mechanically stuck or the membrane contacts. The simple solution is to replace the keypad.
I found this information by searching for "Frigidaire Model AEQ6000ES2"

SOURCE: samsung gas dryer convert to propane

I purchased a Samsung steam gas dryer and found that no one in our area knew anything about them, Fortunately I am a gas tech. but have never worked on this brand. The first thing is you should always use a gas technician before doing this. Secondly turn off the gas and electricity. You must remove the two screws from the back that hold on the top of the appliance and set this aside. Then lift up the front electronics and disconnect the wiring harness, once you've done this there are 5 screws along the top of the silver strip or door area. This will alow you to lift up the front and disconnect the wiring harness and set aside. now you can follow the instructions on converting your dryer. PLEASE check for LEAKS and proper gas flow. Follow the same steps in reverse to put the dryer back together and happy drying.

Troubleshooting heating element on samsung steam dryer


Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot or not heat at all. . If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

I have a samsung DV220AGW I'm getting an error code of AE or RE. The dryer will spin and heat up but after about a minute it will stop and display the error code. I've had no luck finding...

Hello Dan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You have a air flow problem. This will shut down the dryer.
AE= Air Exhaust. There is a hot air distribution manifold in the back of your dryer. This is an elongated cover plate. At the smaller bottom is the blower hot air discharge and at the top is the hot air discharge into the dryer. At the bottom of the manifold is where you are plugged up. This is a common problem for just about all dryers. It is plugged with lint. This is item #17
The manifold is held in place with several screws and easily removed. Unplug your unit before the start of any work.

You may also have a rotary fan wheel that is jammed with lint.
This is more difficult to access. It will require the removal of the dryer top and front panels.

There are also several sensors that may shut your unit down. But for now I would go with a plugged up exhaust manifold.
