This is not a fault code this means auto dry and may be present in normal operation.you might be having a problem with your moisture sensor bar.the heating element is not that hard to replace you can do it your self.

here are a few steps to try first.

1 Press and hold the Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 secondsto reset control.the buzzer will sound 1 time and "res" will be shown briefly in the display.
2. Immediatley after,rotate cycle selector knob 2 turns counter clockwise to the third position from the top and then press and hold the select and cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds. the control will enter field test mode, the buzzer will sound 3 times and the digital display will alternate between "fld and the firmware revision number.
3. rotate the cycle selector knob 2 turns counter clockwise. the error code will appear in the digital display.
e10 e11 e12 is a communication failure and the control board eed to be replaced.
you should also check the thermal fuses inside the cabinet one of these can be bad and cause the symptons you are having

Hi,
The meaning of code AD means air/auto dries. T
his type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break disengaging the heating element. Hence the dryer has a faulty heating element. Please replace it then it should be good to go. Normally runs parts and labor about 150.
Let us know if you are looking for something else.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Start for just 1/3 second then stop with error PF ?


Hey Andy, thank you for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire dryer, GLEQ2152ES, is running for a few seconds and then displaying an error code of "PF". The error code of "PF" means there is a power failure and this could be an issue within your control panel or power source. I would suggest performing a reset, this could help clear our any miscommunications within the panel, and you can do this by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. I hope that this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

Dryer will run but will not heat and the lights all flash


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLEQ2152ES, will run for a few minutes and then stop and display "AD" with the lights flashing. The "AD" means that your appliance was in an automatic dry mode. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Error code Ad


Hello Rachael, thank you for your inquiry!

Typically error code AD indicates that the Auto Dry option has been selected. Typically when using no heat in any Auto Dry cycle will result in long drying times and/or wet loads at the end of cycle. I would suggest selecting another option or resetting your dryer. You may either unplug it or flip the household breaker off for approximately ten minutes. Turn your dryer on then select a normal cycle. Your appliance should resume normal operations. If this problem persists, your dryer may possibly have a faulty heating element, blower assembly or a communication problem with the control panel. This is not a normal DIY job. You may want to connect with a local servicer to determine the exact diagnosis. I hope this helps explain the error code you are receiving.

No heat


Hello Patty Hanna - Typically error code AD indicates that the Auto Dry option has been selected. Using no heat in any Auto Dry cycle will result in long drying times and/or wet loads at the end of cycle. I would suggest selecting other option or resetting the unit. You may either unplug it or flip the household breaker off for approximately two minutes. Restart unit, select a normal cycle and verify if it will heat. If the dryer does not heat the unit it could possibly have a faulty heating element, blower assembly or a communication problem with the control panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Error code AD error code DN


it means auto dry it will check the temp of the clothes so if they dryer quicker then 40-45 minutes it will shut off earlier instead of running the full 40-45 minutes. In the manual it says AD is the adjusting time according to moisture level for those who keep drying but display this it is normal for those who display and size to dry is not normal if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Error code on dryer display


Check your breakers. Mine was doing the same thing, all of the 120v parts of the machine were working. (blower/drum motor/ lights) However the element wasn't coming on. Went to the breaker and found that one side of the 2 pole breaker was tripped. Turned both off and back on. Heater started working again.

When you set the dryer on settings such as normal or permanent press, it engages the various sensors that help the dryer to make the most efficient use of energy. Moisture sensor, heat sensor etc. (THAT IS WHAT TURNS ON YOUR AD SETTING) Normally it selects a time based on factory settings that it believes your load should be dried by. Say 50 minutes at Normal (high heat, normal) Every so often during the cycle, the machine will check the humidity sensor and the other sensors and try to see if the dryer is still on schedule. Sometimes it will determine that more time is needed, occasionally less time. While it calculates, it displays the Ad meaning that the machine is on auto dry. TO TURN OFF AUTO DRY, set it to a time setting instead of a DESCRIPTION setting.
