Hey Cindy, thanks for your submission!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "ad". The "ad" error code will display with the "Auto Dry" cycle has been selected. If you did not select the auto dry cycle I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. Once power has been restored to the dryer and if the error code is still persistent you may need to have a replacement control panel or wiring harness installed. I would recommend having electrical parts replaced by a professional technician this will prevent any personal injury. Best of luck! -Matt
I understand that you are receiving an "AD" error code on your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLEQ2152ES0. I also see that your dryer is not heating. The "AD" code states that your appliance is in an auto dry cycle. I suggest resetting your dryer, 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. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

I see that you are receiving an AD error code on your laundry center, model# FEX831CS, and your dryer is stopping mid-dry. I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your dryer, if it is still showing an AD error code, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.
If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry and the AD error. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
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
AD is air dry, more then likely the vent is restricted and needs cleaned out, you will need to clean the inside of the dry out,also. You thermal fuse is bad. here is a website that will help Good Luck Tim
Hi Thanks for
using FixYa. Error code AD means air/auto dry. This
type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break
disengaging the heating element, there for the dryer has a busted heating element,
you’ll need to replace it then it should be good to go. Normally runs parts and
labor about 150. Please do accept the solution if the issue is
resolved or else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!
Do you clean your lint filter every load? If the vent is blocked it will not get hot either! Check the outside where the dryer vents out and be sure the outside screen that keeps small animals out is not clogged! Even half way cloged will stop the drying process!
Other wise this is a situation that you will need to call service! Now you can call the manufacturer and tell them even though its after the warranty that you were building a home and not used it till last week!!! Ask for a supervisor an tell them you did not purchase you stainless steel kitchen yet and must be sure they honer their workmanship first! I use this for my customers all the time to get things done for them! It will work if you are calm quiet and persistent!
Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!

You will be fine now!

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.
