The AF stands for Low airflow condition. We had it too. Check the lint trap first as it is the easiest. Then check the dryer hose ductwork make sure its not crushed or blocked. You may need to clean the line from the outside too.

Keep getting "AF" code even after cleaning and washing lint trap and cleaning all hoses from back of unit all the way to out of house.


your description is common when there is a blockage , or blower not moving, I would take it apart again and reassemble to make sure everything is put together correctly.

Permanent press cycle keeps shutting down and doesn't finish.


Hello. I don't know what make/model dryer you have but the problem could be with load size and type of clothing. The sensor bars are usually located on the front of the lint screen housing(you have to put your head in the dryer and look back to see them--they are 2 metal strips, approx 1/2" apart and at least several inches long). The damp/wet clothing keeps shorting across the strips, telling the main board to keep the dryer running. If there isn't enough of a load, the dryer may think that the clothes are dry prematurely and count down too quickly. The sensor bar technology *is not* an exact science--it works best on large loads with like clothing. For smaller loads, use time dry and adjust the temp setting accordingly. I hope I helped you.

MY WHIRLPOOL CABRIO DRYER IS BLOWING HOT AIR BUT CLOTHES ARNET DRYING. CLEANES THE VENTS FROM THE OUTSIDE AND THE AF SENSING CODE KEEPS FLASHINGS WHAT DO I DO? PLUS IM GOING CRAZY I HAVE FIVE KIDS......


This is an air flow issue. Take the hose off the back of the dryer and run it and see if the error goes away. If it does not, something is plugging the inside of the dryer airflow.

Dryer not drying-the sceen has af flashing please help..whirlpool cabrio


An "AF" code means there is a low airflow condition and the clothes may not dry properly. To remedy this, check to make sure the lint screen is cleaned off and that there is no blockage in either the vent duct that runs from the dryer to the wall or the vent hood on the exterior of the house.



Thanks for using FixYa.

AF Error Code




If thats not it, then you nay have a faulty sensor.
AF Restricted Airflow Condition
"AF" flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not
obstructed.

My electric dryer heats up but doesnt dry the clothes


If your vent hose is more than about ten feet long, your dryer may not have enough pressure to keep the air moving sufficiently to dry the clothes. Is it possible you are simply over loading your dryer?

Takes too long to dry or keeps running when clothes are dry


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

OVERHEATING, AF CODE..... Whirlpool Cabrio WED6200SW1


Mine is doing the same thing. Whirlpool still has it under warranty but says they won't replace it. They will only repair it. They have been out 5 times now and still not fixed. It will work one time and the clothes are scorched when I took them out. Do NOT BUY WHIRLPOOL. I think we should start a civil suit against Whirlpool for replacement of all of these washers.

Dryer taking too long to dry clothes


Hello :)

Very common problem. You need to call a
duct cleaning company and tell them to clean
your dryer vent. Rule-of-thumb: dryer vents
should be cleaned every couple of years to
prevent them from being clogged with lint and
causing lint fires. This is definitely your problem.
Good luck :)

p.s. one way to verify a clogged vent is
to go outside where the vent exits the house
and feel the air-flow. should have adequate air-flow.
