I have a Frigidaire Affinity electric dryer Model # FAQE7001LWO. . The cycle will start for about 5-7 mins once started and then it shuts off and all lights on the unit start blinking. Please Help!


Google your model number and how to retrieve the error codes. It sounds like either the heating coil or control board is bad. I have a different model that does the very same thing...they run until the cycle tried to turn the heat on then it causes an error. In my case it is the control panel and I decided since mine is old and we are a family 6 (lots of use in it) not to repair it.

Turns on, no heat, stopas after about 5 mins and all lights start blinking.


Good Afternoon Amanda,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# FAQE7001LW, is not heating as well as only running about 5-7 minutes of the cycle before shutting off. There are a couple things to check.

    1)The gas supply valve is not open. Check to make sure that the gas valve is open.
    2)The dryer does not have enough air supply to support the burner flame. Check with your local gas company to make sure that your dryer is installed correctly.
    3)There is a possibility that your LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas. Try refilling or replacing the tank.
    If you are still having trouble with your dryer, I suggest giving it a hard reset, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, start any cycle. If you are still noticing that there is no heat and it stops 5-7 minutes into the cycle, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

My affinity electric dryer shuts off after a few minutes, isn't heating, and blinks EA4


That means that the ignitor is most likely failing to start the process to ignite the gas. The ignitor is like a light bulb and can burn out.
Here is a link to the information about that: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/289969-frigidaire-model-faqg7077ka-error-code-e4a-heat

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.

Affinity Dryer has all LED lights blink and then it stops running


Hello everclavel - Try reprogramming the dryer by flipping the household circuit breaker off or unplugging it. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, the dryer could possibly be experiencing a communication error with the main control board, wiring failure, or faulty door lock assembly. Connect with a certified technician to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Dryer will work for about 15-20 minutes. Then shuts off. No heat in the dryer for my clothes to dry. The lights are blinking. Please help, we just got it last year. Thank you!


Always list your machine model, mfg, type, voltatge, etc. The more info we have the more we can help you. If you just got the machine, check your warranty. Blinking lights probably mean an electronic control problem, you're going to need a qualified tech to fix that.
