Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

Dryer shuts after one minute


If it heats then you're getting 240 to the dryer. Take off the vent hose and look for a lint build up in the hose and where it connects to the house. Restriction will cause the dryer to shut off the heat to avoid a fire.

sounds like perhaps you are losing your heating element...could be electronic, but it's most likely the actual element needs to be replaced...

did you clean the LINT filter? try vacuuming the lint trap area. wet or damp lint can get built up in the lint trap area. it is good to regularly clean the area as it is a Major fire hazard.

Why is my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer saying AF instead of the Mins.?


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


According to the manual....

"AF (low airflow condition):
The dryer will continue to run when this diagnostic code is present. Press any key to clear the code from the display and return to the estimated time remaining.

Try the following:

1. Clean lint screen.

2. Check to see if the vent run from the dryer to the wall is crushed or kinked.

3. Confirm the vent run from the dryer to the wall is free of lint and debris.

4. Confirm the exterior vent exhaust hood is free of lint and debris.

5. Confirm your vent system falls within the recommended run length and number of elbows for the type of vent you are using.

6. Select a Timed Dry heated cycle, and restart the dryer.

7. If the message persists, have your entire home venting run cleaned."


Please get back to us if you have any further query.


Have a nice day.

My Frigidaire dryer will not start. It shows a PF trouble code. What does this mean?


PF is showing you that there is a power problem. Check your dryer circuit breaker at the power panel. This can be a sing that one of the 2 breakers has tripped. Push the CB hard to OFF and then back to ON. Then try and start your dryer. If that does not work just respond here and I will help you.

Try selecting "No Heat" after resetting the CB and see if the dryer starts. If it does you could have a bad heating element that caused the breaker to trip to begin with. Sometimes when the heating element fails the broken link will contact the chassis and cause the CB to trip. Heating element failures are usually caused by poor airflow. You may want to look for any signs of lint in your dryer to include the lint filter area and all the way to the outside wall exhaust point.

The lent signal comes on when start the dryer


Hello, Welcome to Fixya. Based on what you've described I don't think anything is wrong with your Bosch dryer ( provided the model number is correct ). If the dryer has an l.e.d. Indicator labelled "check lint" this is simply a reminder to check it before proceeding. Believe it or not I have clients who have used their dryer for years and never noticed this indicator or "reminder" ever before...so I get it ;o) So If the unit starts and isn't displaying any error codes and otherwise working, the dryer is functioning properly, i.e. heating, not running too long, not tripping hi-limit safety etc. Let me know if this is indeed the case...that the dryer is working fine otherwise, or if you are referring to another model number. Thanks for choosing "fixya". Please take a moment and rate the answer provided here today accordingly. macmarkus :)
