Frigidaire affinity dryer problem


I have a frigidaire affinity dryer that is 2 months past warrenty and of course it breaks now.

It spins in times dry when in noheat/air fluff mode. The manual said to replace the themostat and I told the repair guy to do that today to no avail and he said i may need a motherboard as the codes are not in the tech manual.

The codes are:



and now when I have done the test the code is coming up E68, but the repair guy did not get that code today.

Thanks SOOOOOOOO much for your help

The model number is AEQ6000ES2

    error code e4a

    I have similar problems also. I am going to start tearing this apart to figure out what is wrong with mine. 1st error code was a E68then the unit would run for 30 seconds, then an E4A error code pops up and the unit stops running. Tech says it's a control panel and wants $600 to fix it. I don't think so, I will try to locate a control panel and replace it myself.

I had the same problem with my Frigidaire Affinity Dryer, no heat. I took the vent off the back and let it run for 5 minutes. It started heating up. The hose for the vent was clogged. It works fine now. Check your hose and inside the dryer where the vent attaches. Unplug it first of course. Hope this helps!

Help[ my affinity dryer is somehow tearing /slashing rips in my clothes.

Posted on Sep 05, 2008

Inside my affinity dryer I found a service tech manual taped on the wall near the drum motor that lists fault codes. It also tells you how to go into diagnostic mode to help figure out what is wrong. On mine there is a aluminum louvered panel in the lower left looking from the back. It is held on by 2 screws. Make sure the dryer is UNpluged because the motor and belt drive are right behind this. Look inside and you may find an evelope taped to the inside wall. I am in the middle of figuring out what is wrong with mine but it is about the same age and just out of warrenttee too. I looked on and I have no clicking sound and they are pointing to the igniter or possibly the radiant sensor. I am off to check these now. I hope this is helpful.

Clean tub options keeps blinking on affinity frigidaire fafs4474lwo model

Hello Jodi, thank you for your post!

Your Frigidaire washer (FAFS4474LW0) will automatically prompt you to run the CLEAN WASHER cycle typically every 50 cycles. If you wish to begin the cycle, press SELECT when prompted. This maintenance cycle uses hot water and two rinses to remove residue that may cause odor. For best results, I recommend to use the CLEAN WASHER cycle once a month

You may press the CANCEL button to manually perform the cycle at another time if you prefer. You can do this by following these directions:

    ·Rotate cycle knob to Rinse & Spin
    ·Then press the CLEAN WASHER option button
    ·The LCD screen will display "SYSTEM CLEAN"

    Hope this helps! - Z

Frigidaire Affinity AEQ6700FSO electric dryer does not heat, then shuts off within 10 minutes.

Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.

I have an Affinity Dryer that works for the first 5 minutes, exactly, then in flashes AD. It continues to spin but not dry at that point.

Problem is going to be with the thermistor located on the blower housing at the front. You will see 2 plastic pieces with wires going to them. The thermistor is the one on the left. Cannot jump this out all you can do is change it.
