Letters IH on estimated time remaining display

Only in the More Dry mode, when dryer is turned on, the letters IH appear in the time remaining display. The letters IH alternate flashing with the time remaining based on the sensor system estimate of drying time.
Can't find the error code (or information code) IH anywhere in the manual.
Can you help?

Estimated time remaining readout shows AF instead of the time left. It is a Kenmore 700 series dryer


AF stands for Algorithm Failure, which means that there is something preventing the dryer from calculating the remaining time. Try cleaning out the dryer drum and lint screen completely, then run the dryer with just a dry towel.

Tip

Dryer Dry Time Appears to Jump or Stall During Auto Dry Cycles


The operation of dryers during the Auto Dry Cycles is based on the moisture content of the clothes as they cycle over the moisture sensor. At the start of the cycle, the default estimated time is displayed depending on the cycle selected. The moisture sensor feeds information to the control based on the "wetness' of the clothes during the first 5 minutes of the cycle. The control then calculates and display a new estimated time making the time appear to "jump".

Recalculation happens again based on the reduction in the "wetness" of the clothes when the Estimated Time Remaining is between 15 to 5 minutes. The control will extend the cycle and display the Estimated Time Remaining unchanged if it "sees" no significant reduction in the wetness level of the clothes. The dryer will run longer than initially projected and give the appearance that the displayed time has "stalled".

Clean the sensor bars for any films or dirt build up to make sure it sends accurate information to the control. Level the dryer front to back and side to side to ensure the clothing will tumble properly and making good and proper contact with the moisture sensor bars. Check the dryer vent duct for any restriction to ensure a good air flow as the operation of the Auto Dry Cycles is based primarily on the air flow condition.

It is highly recommended to clean the lint filter before every load and make sure the dryer is grounded at the wall plug.

"LOC". As I turn the dial to the requested setting, all the times (15min. 55 min., etc.) are displayed, but as I go to push the 'start' button, the screen says, "LOC",...


Hi, "LOC" indicates that the control panel settings are locked. Press the SELECT and OPTION button simultaneously to toggle this 'feature' on or off. Hope this helps.

Indicate the exact model number of the dryer if the control panel doesn't look like the one shown above or if no button with the small "PRESS & HOLD 3 SEC TO SET CHILD LOCK" (DRY LEVEL) marking is found.

What does the code LOC mean?


HI. This is a simple lockout feature that will allow you to prevent accidental starts or stops when children are present. It can be initiated by pressing the Options and Select buttons at the same time for ten seconds. This will initiate the lockout feature and the letters "LOC" will appear on your display. To remove the control lock out, simply, press the Options and Select buttons together once again at the same time and hold them for 10 seconds. This will release the lock out and the letters "LOC" will disappear.

I have a whirlpool electric dryer Model No. GEW9200 and lights come on, it appears to be sensing moisture content, but the drum won't turn


The cause of the problem is either a blown thermal fuse, a faulty belt switch (loose or worn out belt), a faulty door switch, or a faulty machine control board. Activate the "Diagnostic Test Mode" to determine which you should check first to avoid unnecessary disassembly of the machine.

Diagnostic Test Mode Activation Procedure
  1. Unplug the machine for fifteen minutes.
  2. Make sure the machine stays in standby mode when it is plugged back. That is, no indicator light is on.
  3. Press the following button sequence within five seconds: More time>Less time>More time>Less time
  4. All of the indicators on the console should light on and "88" is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display panel. It means no fault is detected and the belt switch is faulty or the belt is worn. Replace whichever is necessary to be replaced.
  • If E1 or E2 flashes on the display, the thermistor has failed and the thermal fuse is open. Replace both.
  • If E3 flashes on the display, there is a fault in the machine control board. Check the board for loose connections or replace it.
  • Open and close the door. There should be a "beep" everytime the door is closed and opened and "OE" is displayed whenever the door is opened. The door switch is faulty if no "beep" is heard or if "OE" is displayed even when the door is closed. Check the wiring harness connection or replace the door switch assembly.
Please inform me about the result of the test to give you the exact repair/replacement procedure.
