This is an Air Flow warning error and you should check that the filter is clean and free of lint etc. Make sure it goes back in place correctly. Also check that the vent hose is not kinked or twisted or obstructed and any outside flap is opening correctly. It is well worth taking the outside flap or taking off the vent hose altogether and making sure it is clear of lint, fibres etc and this will cause the AF error.

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

Kitchenaid Dryer Keeps running and clothes remain moist.


Check to make sure you have good airflow to the outside vent. Could have a clogged vent system.

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.

Clothes remain wet after multiple times through drying cycle; the "AF" warning lamp is on as well.


AF= Air Flow: there is a restriction; check to make sure that the lint screen is clean,and that the door seal is in place and the vent isn't obstructed, just disconnect the vent and run the dryer, if it clears its the vent tube if not feel the back of the dryer with it running should feel hot/warm air continuous, if not feeling a lot of air, the you will need to take the dryer apart and clean all the lint off. if all checks out good then the control board. Hope this helps Tim

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.

Dryer working but takes quite a long time to dry clothes


Hi either the vents are clogged with lint and you will have to get those brushes to clean the lent traps. or it is the element. Probably the former and not the latter. But it depends on the age of the dryer.

Dryer is heating but not get clothes dry...


make sure you have a strong air flow from the dryer it self take hose off and run the unit it should force your hand away if not your dryer is stopped up you will have to take fan casing off and clean (the metal going to hole for vent hose) if you do go outside and make sure you vent outside is opening and free of lint also wash your lint filter with warm soapy water fabric sheets stop them up and cause longer drying time
