Question about Amana Dryers

1 Answer

We have an Amana LE9207W2. We start the dryer and within minutes it stops with an error code of SH. Do have to tell you that the dryer would seem to get overheated and shut down. That had been happening for quite a while. We would let it cool down in between loads and it would continue on. Just recently we started getting the SH code and a long beep. It's just progressively getting worse.

Hello- The error code is for an "Open Thermistor". You will need to have a Tech out to replace it. The part is about $30. As well, take a look behind the dryer and see if the flexible vent has been crimped or crushed and if so replace it. You can get this 4" ducting at most hardware stores. Also check the air flow on the exterior of the house where the dryer vents to. You should be able to feel a good amount of air coming out when the dryer is running. If little air is coming out and the ducting runs a good distance through the wall you should have a duct cleaning service out to clean it. Any issues with the venting of the hot air can cause problems with the thermostats and thermistor as well. Hope this helps, best regards.

Start for just 1/3 second then stop with error PF ?


Hey Andy, thank you for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire dryer, GLEQ2152ES, is running for a few seconds and then displaying an error code of "PF". The error code of "PF" means there is a power failure and this could be an issue within your control panel or power source. I would suggest performing a reset, this could help clear our any miscommunications within the panel, and you can do this by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. I hope that this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

Frigidaire Gallery model GLEQ2170KSO dryer turns off within a minute.


Hello allisonarena - Try reprogramming the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or defective door switch. I would recommend connecting with an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further and to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Dryer will not start get an error code that looks like a t5.


It is actually error code "tS" which stands for thermistor shorted. The control interprets it as an extremely low resistance which is a result of a the dryer overheating. Locate the thermistor on the blower housing and replace it. Click on the link below and refer to the parts diagram then look for item number 27(thermistor).
