I didn't start seeing that AF indicator until I moved into a different house. Last night it took 3 hours to dry a small load of laundry. I went down into the crawl space and took apart the dryer ventilation ducts, cleaned them out thoroughly with a brush and found that moisture had been accumulating in there as well. Once I cleaned all the vents out and sealed them back up (with metal duct tape), I ran the dryer EMPTY for 40 minutes to give the ducts a chance to dry out and push the rest of the lint out.
Just ran a load of sheets in there (which was taking 50-70 minutes to dry) and they dried in only 25 minutes.
Long story short - CLEAN OUT YOUR DUCTS. My dryer works like new now.

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.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

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.
