On this model, as I'm sure you have noticed, the trap tends to drop quit a bit of the lint, in which the lint trap isn't to effective and the seal of the duct its attached to isn't "sealed". From my personal experience when I ran into this issue I just simply had to take the back off the machine, clean out all the lint (i even found 2 dollars in silver in there) and checked all the connections down in the base. I even went as far as removing the top and checking the connections on the control board, but considering I removed a 3 inch layer of lint from inside I honestly think that wasn't an issue. From observation I would also be sure to try and remove the lint from around rollers for the drum just for good maintenance. If all else fails get a multi meter and between these two sites you should be on your way to repairs if you really are trying to save money.
these are repair information that I found helpful. I am not associated with either company, just trying to educate.

Why Am Getting Error Code E64 On My Frigidaire Dryer

I am getting a error code E64 on Frigidaire affinity model# FASE7021NW0 It still get hot but keeps cutting off, what should I do

Hello friend, that's a great question!

From my understanding your Frigidaire Affinity dryer is displaying an error code of "E64". An "E64" error code stands for the heater circuit is open. This could be a possible problem with your heater, wiring harness, or even a miscommunication within your dryer. In order to clear out any miscommunication you can perform a reset on your dryer and to do that you need to unplug the power cord for at least ten minutes. If this does not help to resolve your issue I would recommend having a professional technician out diagnose and repair your dryer to help avoid any future issues or unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

What is error code E64 and how can it be fix

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your inquiry!

Normally error code E64 is an indication that the heater circuit is in the open position. This is not a simple DIY job; I would highly recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately. The certified technician will need to check the heater coils and connections for open circuits. Depending on the diagnosis the heater or wiring may need replacing.

How can i fix an e64 code for frigidare affinity dryer

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E64 code on your Frigidaire Affinity dryer. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave me your model number, so I am able to better assist. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have an error code 64 on my dryer. I am out of work doing chemo right now. can anyone tell me what the problem is

If your Frigidaire Affinity dryer is beeping at you and giving you the "E64 CALL SERVICE" business, chances are you have a bad heating element. The good news is, with a screwdriver, a pair of pliers (a multimeter if you have one) and a new heater element you can fix this yourself and save a couple hundred bucks.

Below I outline a step by step process to do this on the Frigidaire Affinity, but this guide may help with other dryers, as they basically all function the same way.

A WORD OF CAUTION: You will be handling a lot of thin sheet metal components. Be careful as it is easy to cut yourself on them.

First you'll want to unplug the dryer. Then disconnect the vent hose and the water feed (if applicable). Be sure and shut off the water valve first, or you'll have a mess!

Please CALL Frigidare. We have had the same problem with our dryer and now the washer quit! Our set is only 3 years old! With all of the problems reported on the Internet there should be a recall on this set! They need to be informed! I am highly disappointed in the short lifespan of the Affinity Washer and Dryer. Dont know if I would purchase this brand ever again!

Frigidaire faqe7011lw0 dryer having issues, not heating up and shuts off after 10 minutes My dryer model number is faqe7011lw0. It seems to start up, and then after about 10 minutes, consistently, it shuts off and has a bunch of blinking lights on the right side of the control panel. It started off with an error code of E4A which states "The drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle". I got that code to go away and then i got another code of "E4B" which states "Temperature reading of control thermistor has not changed in a certain amount of time". The second error code makes more sense because I notice in the 10 minutes that it runs, there seems to be no heat, so i feel something is causing the dryer to not heat up. The troubleshooting for this states to test a relay on the control panel, but I wanted to see if anyone else had this issue before. The weird thing about this is, if I run the dryer empty, the cycle completes the whole way through, but with wet clothes, it shuts off exactly at 10 minutes, no matter what cycle i set it to. I thought maybe this was a sign I had too large of a load in, so I took out about half the clothes, and ran it then. I still got the same issue. So I am kind of confused why when I run it empty, I get the full cycle with no error code, but with anything in the dryer at all, it stops after 10 minutes and gives me an error code. FYI, I have check the exhaust too to make sure it isn't clogged with lint, and it is wide open.
