Re: code on dryer panel

We had a very similar problem. Replacement of the control board seemed to have fixed it.

Before replacing, you might want to visually examine the capacitors and resistors located onteh board. One of the two capacitors was leaking and the resistors had overheated.

Good luck.

Frigidaire affinity dryer code ad

Hey Cindy, thanks for your submission!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "ad". The "ad" error code will display with the "Auto Dry" cycle has been selected. If you did not select the auto dry cycle I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. Once power has been restored to the dryer and if the error code is still persistent you may need to have a replacement control panel or wiring harness installed. I would recommend having electrical parts replaced by a professional technician this will prevent any personal injury. Best of luck! -Matt

Duet model GEW9200L. What does code 08 indicate?

there is no such error code on this dryer, that is likely the time left on the display... If the dryer stopped at the 8 minute mark with no error, check the door switch because it can interrupt a cycle, but will result in no error... Did you try to start it again, what happened?

I have model # GEW9250PW duet front loader dryer and keep getting a code E1

This is a failed thermistior error code.

The machine control electronics monitors the

exhaust temperature using the thermistor, and

cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain

the desired temperature.

Begin with an empty dryer and a clean lint


1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.

2. Set the following configuration:

? Door - must be firmly closed

? Press Control On

? Press End Of Cycle Signal (Louder)

? Press Start

3. If after 60 seconds, E1 or E2 flashes in the

display and the dryer shuts off, the thermistor

or wire harness is either shorted or open.

? Unplug dryer or disconnect power.

? Check wire connections at the machine

control electronics and thermistor. See

Accessing & Removing the Electronic

Assemblies, page 7, and figure 8 for

thermistor location.

? If wire connections are good, remove the

two wires from the thermistor and replace
the thermistor.
the part number is 8577274 you can remove the lower panel in the front to change the part.
thanks and please rate me thank you....ken

When starting dryer this am i received error code 8.8 and cannot get dryer to respond to anything. What is the problem?

Try putting a heating pad on the display panel. After about 10 minutes or more the display will return to normal and the dryer will work.

I have a 10 year old Maytag Nepture MDE5500ay with a membrane control panel. When I touch any button on the membrane it immediately indicates a 8.8. on the display. I have unpluged the machine and waited...

The 8 code generally means a stuck keypad which can only be resolved by replacement of the keypad.

The service manual at the link below will give you some guidance in section 9. Good Luck
