Question about Frigidaire Dryers

1 Answer

Frigidaire affinity dryer will not start. It gets the dr code. I assume that means door problem but if I hold the select button down on the temperature selection it will run but as soon as i let go it reads the dr code again. I cant stand there and hold button for an hour while clothes dry. But if it was the door why would it run while the button is being held.

Repairs should be performed by an authorized servicer. insure that the door is properly closed unplug the unit and perform a continuity check on the door switch. if the door switch is ok reconnect the door switch and plug the unit to the power supply. if the problem still exists then you have a control issue. be sure to call your nearest service center to schedule for a repair. have your model and serial number available.

So my husband figured it out. We took out the book in the back and then took out the push button and we figured out that the switch inside was melted and it wasn't reading that the door was closed. He unstuck the switch and it worked again!!! Thanks anyways for your help!!

SOURCE: dryer won't stay on unless I hold the start button down. When I let go of the start button, it stops.

most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

Open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Then raise the top and you can get to the screws holding the front on. Get the front out and then the drum can come out so you can clean that guy out and replace that belt. How about some repair PHOTOS?

Why is my washer displaying a "DR" when I push start?

  • 1 Press any button on the display panel.
  • 2 Wait five seconds and then press and hold the "Start/Pause" button and the "Cancel" button at the same time.
  • 3 Open and shut the door. A "DR" error code indicates that there is a problem with the door, most likely that it has not shut properly. Check to make sure there are no clothes or other items caught in the door.
  • 4 Open the door and gently wiggle the door latch if the door does not click shut. Clean it with a damp cloth to remove excess dirt or debris that may prevent the door from latching into position.
  • 5 Close the door and re-select a new wash cycle and "Start."

    I try to turn my dryer on, and it has a "dr" error on the timer??? I would think that means door, but the door is shut??

    press and hold select and cancel buttons together for six seconds this will reset the board.there is also a chance that the door switch is bad and not seeing the door is shut

    Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start

    Try holding the 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the door lock button comes on. This is the child lock function. You can do it again for the lock to come off. Hold down for over 3 seconds
