Kenmore Elite Oasis Dryer with Airflow problem

We have a Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer model # 110.6703. It is almost 2 years old and on the display unit the letters AF came up. I looked in the manual and that means airflow problem. I have removed the back of the unit to clean out any lint and thoroughly cleaned the lint area, as well has cleaned the line. When I turned the machine on with the line unattached, there was little airflow. Without clothes in it it will run the full cycle but as soon as I put wet clothes in the AF appears. Any ideas? Help! Thanks.

Sincerely,
Spencer

    I bought this dryer and within a week, Sears had to bring me a new one~ but they did it kicking and screaming. I had to get VERY assertive on the phone and threaten to call the BBB. We had the replacement dryer about a week and had to call them back out to fix something with the air flow. It is now 9 months later and we are having the airflow issue again. This product truly sucks and it's not a cheap purchase either. I will never buy anything from Sears again because of the customer service and I will definitely do my research on my next dryer purchase.

Thank you, Rlcarter! After reading your solution my husband took the back panel off and explored to find that that was indeed the problem. He fixed and now dryer works perfectly again.

Did you try removing lower access panel from front of unit. this will give you acees to the main lint filter housing. a few 1/4 in screws will take it down and loook in theer for blockage.. and althoughyour vent line is clear did you check where ei exits house outside housing can become blocked as well

Kenmore Elite Oasis 6806 Electric dryer with burning smell


you must disassemble the unit and clean the lint out of the heating unit area, it is lint catching fire and could be dangerous to continue using your unit in this condition. a vacuum cleaner should do well to clean the lint and the drum must be removed to do a proper cleaning

We have a kenmore elite oasis dryer.one year old.just bought from some people only had it for two days.it was in the middle of a cycle when it suddenly shut off with the code af appearing where the timer...


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.

PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the dryer's cycle.
Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

Kenmore elite oasis dryer model #110.6708 will not operate. flashes f-40. what does f-40 mean?


F40 = thermal fuse blown.
If the fuse is OK the error points to a communication problem between the machine control board and motor control board (check connectors).

My 18 month old kenmore elite oasis quiet pak 2 gas dryer smells as if there were a fire in it!!!!  and ironically, when i noticed the smell i also saw water around the base of the kenmore elite oasis top...


Hello plz make sure the gas burner does not have any lint build up on burner assembly inside the machine / plz clean.That usually causes a burnt smell. If there is no error codes on the display and the machines is operating fine you are chasing a ghost. If there is a pump or motor over load an error code should come up on the display.
