"AF" means there is an air flow problem within the venting system. There is either a restriction in the hose, outside vent cover, the front vent, or maybe the lower blower assist isn't rotating.

Where the time usually is displayed it says " CL"


Hi

Assuming it as LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer CL means the Child Lock has been activated to avoid any harm to the children. To reset the dryer you'll need to press and hold dry level for 5 seconds. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Whirlpool dryer Cabrio 6 months old. message on screen is "AF" what does that mean?


Code AF means the air flow is blocked.
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

I have a whirlpool electric dryer (cabrio) every now and then it displays a code of AF what does that mean


I checked all the obvious things posted throughout the internet about this code on my 5 month old WED7800XL and none of them were the problem. What I found on my dryer was the belt that drives the fan had come off. After further inspection I also noticed that the pulley on the top of the fan was missing. After removing the front panel from the dryer I found the pulley, reinstalled it and the belt, the removed panels and it was fixed.
Also FYI, underneath the electronic panel there is a service manual for the dryer.

AF error will not go away after cleaning vent and lint filters


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

AF is an error that will flash if a restricted air flow is sensed by the dryer control. If three consecutive cycles have low airflow the control will flash the AF error.

The AF error code can be cleared by pressing the Drying Temp pad for 5 seconds while in stand-by mode. AF will flash in the display for 1 second then "on" will appear in the display. If you press Drying Temp again and "of" will appear in the display indicating the AF error display has been turned off. Try this procedure and see if the "of" error goes away. If the "of" came up in the display by itself then the keypad may be stuck. However After cleaning the dryer's lint screen, ensure that the exterior exhaust hood connected to the dryer is unblocked, ensure that the vent connecting the dryer to the wall is clear and see that the vent is cleaned professionally.

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

''AF'' error on Maytag Bravos dryer


"AF" means "Air Flow". Your vents are cloged with lint. I have had to vaccum out my vents several times, both inside and out. It's been a bit of a pain.

Dryer is displaying AF


i got this from the other site.


The code AF indicates that the control senses a restricted air flow. To clear the code, press STOP once and the estimated time remaining countdown will return to the display. The AF code will continue to appear with each cycle until the low airflow condition is resolved.
Try the following troubleshooting to resolve the air flow problem:
  • Clean the lint screen.
  • Check at the outside of the home to make sure that the vent exhaust hood is not blocked.
  • Check the flexible vent connection behind your dryer. Make sure that it is not kinked or clogged.
  • You can disconnect the flexible vent and start a cycle with the dryer venting directly into your laundry room. If the AF code does not appear, this will verify an exhaust vent duct problem. Otherwise you may have a component failure.
  • Have your home dryer venting run cleaned professionally.

hope i was able to fix your problem,

tnx 4 using fixya,
