This is this is the "program Timeout Fault". Meaning the drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle.Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes. Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START. Check for anything that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closet with solid door, or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic control.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

HOW do I get rid of a code on my dryer or is it EL8,what part repairs this code.

Good Afternoon Butchie111, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "EL8" and it will run for 30 seconds then beep the code. I am showing that "EL8" is an invalid code. It could be a possible miscommunication error so I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dryer for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help your issue could you please provide me with the new error code or inform me if your dryer still displays "EL8"? I look forward to your response. -Matt

How do i fix error code E4A frigidaire dryer

Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

Typically error code E4A indicates program timeout fault or the max time exceeded for that cycle. A professional normally checks for anything that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closed with solid door, faulty connection in moisture sensor bar circuit. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dryer.

Frigidaire dryer code e4a

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are receiving an E4A error code on your Frigidaire dryer. I do not show an E4A error code for your appliance. I do have an EA4 error code which states improper home wiring. The other possibility is that this could be a false error code. I suggest resetting your dryer, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your dryer. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My affinity electric dryer shuts off after a few minutes, isn't heating, and blinks EA4

That means that the ignitor is most likely failing to start the process to ignite the gas. The ignitor is like a light bulb and can burn out.
Here is a link to the information about that:

Error code E4H

Hi - Are you certain the error code is E4H? This manufacturer does not have such an existing error code however Frigidaire does have an error code E4A. Typically it indicates a faulty issue with the timeout program. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. Technician will check for anything that would cause extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closet with solid door, bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If dryer operates normally after it has be diagnose and code returns, the main control will possibly need replacing.

Our dryer is beeping and is displaying an error code of E68. I hit Cancel to try to reset it, and it goes back to numbers (20 minutes or whatever), then after a couple seconds goes back to E68. I hit...

I found via a Google search that E68 means one of the keys is jammed. Looking at it, it was pretty obvious which one, so I pushed it in and re-centered it in its casing. That did the trick.
