AF= Air Flow: there is a restriction; check to make sure that the lint screen is clean,and that the door seal is in place and the vent isn't obstructed, just disconnect the vent and run the dryer, if it clears its the vent tube if not feel the back of the dryer with it running should feel hot/warm air continuous, if not feeling a lot of air, the you will need to take the dryer apart and clean all the lint off. if all checks out good then the control board. Hope this helps Tim

Lsw9750pw3 clothes still wet


If there is water remaining after the drain then the drain pump must be checked. Also check the TILT of the washer and must be inclined to the drain side.
If the clothes are wet then the SPIN RPM is insufficient or the program cycle time is not adequate. Please try with another cycle or check the motor, belt, capacitor as the RPM is low.

Tip

Dryer Dry Time Appears to Jump or Stall During Auto Dry Cycles


The operation of dryers during the Auto Dry Cycles is based on the moisture content of the clothes as they cycle over the moisture sensor. At the start of the cycle, the default estimated time is displayed depending on the cycle selected. The moisture sensor feeds information to the control based on the "wetness' of the clothes during the first 5 minutes of the cycle. The control then calculates and display a new estimated time making the time appear to "jump".

Recalculation happens again based on the reduction in the "wetness" of the clothes when the Estimated Time Remaining is between 15 to 5 minutes. The control will extend the cycle and display the Estimated Time Remaining unchanged if it "sees" no significant reduction in the wetness level of the clothes. The dryer will run longer than initially projected and give the appearance that the displayed time has "stalled".

Clean the sensor bars for any films or dirt build up to make sure it sends accurate information to the control. Level the dryer front to back and side to side to ensure the clothing will tumble properly and making good and proper contact with the moisture sensor bars. Check the dryer vent duct for any restriction to ensure a good air flow as the operation of the Auto Dry Cycles is based primarily on the air flow condition.

It is highly recommended to clean the lint filter before every load and make sure the dryer is grounded at the wall plug.

Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

AF Code flashes briefly; Clothes don't dry - vent clear


Remove the back of the dryer and chek the lint filter area from the lint catching filter to the exhaust tube. There is a blockage in airflow even though you feel the air at the exhaust there still insn't enough air flow to allow the proper drying of the clothes. This symptom that you gave clothes being hot but not dry the only cause for this is improper air flow

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...


This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

I have a Wirlpool cabrio dryer in it's "time remaining" says "AF" the clothes aren't drying. and the lent trap is collecting lint on the wrong side


This is an Air Flow warning error and you should check that the filter is clean and free of lint etc. Make sure it goes back in place correctly. Also check that the vent hose is not kinked or twisted or obstructed and any outside flap is opening correctly. It is well worth taking the outside flap or taking off the vent hose altogether and making sure it is clear of lint, fibres etc and this will cause the AF error.

Problem solved! We read on here about someone else addressing the AF code by removing the back panel and fixing the pully that had come off. Belt was fine, with pully back in place dryer now works perfectly again. Thank you for saving us so much time and money!

Tumble dryer not working


I managed to solve the problem the following way: I noticed that if you unplug the Sensor-NTC(part nimber 154431 https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=WET2820GB%2f13 ) that controls temperature of air in the air channel, the drying cycle runs as you describe above. So this circute was checked up to the power module. Contacts of the Sensors plug were tightened; I think this solved the problem; resistance of the sensor checked. It must be 4.8K at 25 degree C. and decrease when temperature increases. I dipped the sensor in a glass with hot water.
