I have an AF code on my Maytag Bravos dryer. However, the exhaust tubing is totally clear all the way out to the outside vent and there is excellent airflow coming out of the outside vent. Also the lint screen is clean. So what's the problem?

You can pull off the vent line from the back of dryer and run it,if it runs correctly you have a block in the vent line,i use a leaf blower to blow out the line.the dryer should be pulled aprt and cleaned out once a year,if the dryer still shows the code i changed the thermistor and this took care of the problem.you should run it in diagnostics to make sure to see what the problem is,there's a tech sheet on the machine could be in the top console or taped to the back of bottom panel depending on your model number,also if you use cling free sheets you can remove the thermistor and clean the back of it,i've found the white powder from the sheets stuck to the back,i cleaned it off with a tooth brush and it worked but i still changed it out.hope this helps and good luck.and unplug the dryer before you touch it.

I would do a Puddle test on the Lint Screen. A Puddle Test is pour a handful of water onto the Lint Screen. If it Puddles Wash it out with Dish Soap and rinse with Hot Water, See we use Fabric Softener Sheets the Oils from the Sheets clog the little tiny holes an it's hard for the air to flow thru it, This should be done every 6 Months just maybe it's giving it a False reading, also maybe check the Door Gasket

You will have to remove the back panel to access this part. Be sure that you unplug the machine before starting. Once the back panel has been taken off and placed aside the thermal switch will be located on the left lower side near the blower housing . It will be thin and long and located near the cycling thermostat that has for prongs on it. On certain machines, the thermal fuse is located in the front. To access this you must remove the kickplate, which can be done by pushing the clips, one on each side jsut above the top of the kickplate, in between the top and abottom portion. The part numbers are the same for either style dryer. To test this part you can either take the wires off it and tie them together then plug the machine back in and see if it heats, or you can use amultimeter and check to see if there is continuity, if there is its good, if not, bad. The thermal fuse will usually be white, and if located in the back, be thin and long with two wires on it, left and right. If in the bottom front, it will be front center on the exhaust duct

I have a Maytag Bravos dryer. When I emptied the lint trap part of what was on it fell off and now my dryer won't run. I have cleared the vent and hose


When you say part of what was on it fell off was this lint or a piece of the dryer? If the switch on the door has broken the dryer will not run. In this case you will need to replace the switch / lever.

Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

What is the AF display code indicating?


AF Is letting you know there is an AIR FLOW issue most of the time this is from a vent system that is restricted in the wall or a kinked duct between the unit and the wall,or in some rare cases a blower fan/motor concern .Best thing to do is just make sure the exhaust system is clear from the unit to the outside vent

''AF'' error on Maytag Bravos dryer


"AF" means "Air Flow". Your vents are cloged with lint. I have had to vaccum out my vents several times, both inside and out. It's been a bit of a pain.

Dryer is displaying AF


i got this from the other site.


The code AF indicates that the control senses a restricted air flow. To clear the code, press STOP once and the estimated time remaining countdown will return to the display. The AF code will continue to appear with each cycle until the low airflow condition is resolved.
Try the following troubleshooting to resolve the air flow problem:
  • Clean the lint screen.
  • Check at the outside of the home to make sure that the vent exhaust hood is not blocked.
  • Check the flexible vent connection behind your dryer. Make sure that it is not kinked or clogged.
  • You can disconnect the flexible vent and start a cycle with the dryer venting directly into your laundry room. If the AF code does not appear, this will verify an exhaust vent duct problem. Otherwise you may have a component failure.
  • Have your home dryer venting run cleaned professionally.

hope i was able to fix your problem,

tnx 4 using fixya,
