Affinity aeq7000eeo e5b 006 error code

My dryer will run for about 5 minutes, but will not heat up. Then it will shut off and the cycle lights flash. I ran the diagnostic cycle and got error codes E5b and 006. I pulled the heating element out and I am getting continuity throughout as well as the thermostat and the thermistor on the exhaust vent.

    After tracing down the wiring and following it back to the control box. I ended up noticing a burnt spot on one of the units mounted in the control box. I replaced the control box and it works fine now.

SOURCE: Crosley Dryer Heats then stops

If im thinking right, this dryer has the element in the top left corner.  This unit has two thermostats, one mounted right above the element, and the other in the lower left front mounted on the fan housing.  The one in the front is called the high limit thermostat, which means when it gets to a preset high temp, it cuts off the system until cooling occurs.  The top thermostat, mounted above the element is the operating thermostat.  It probably is one of the two thermostats.  Its a very good idea to replace not only both of the thermostats, but the fuse as well.  The fuse kit (Maytag Part# LA-1053) comes with a thermostat and 2 fuses, be sure to follow he instructions on how to determine the fuse for electric and gas.  The high limit thermostat (Maytag Part# 53-0771) is an easy replacement.  Something is causing the unit to short cycle.  Sometimes you can hot-wire the operating thermostat (use caution, severe caution if doing this, not recommended if you arent sure whats going on).  By doing this (removing the two wires from the thermostat, taping them together), you can watch and see if the element stays on longer, at least until the high limit switch comes on.  This is really not recommended, if the high limit is out, it will not be good.  Just easier to replace them both.

SOURCE: Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off

Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

Dryer will run but will not heat and the lights all flash


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLEQ2152ES, will run for a few minutes and then stop and display "AD" with the lights flashing. The "AD" means that your appliance was in an automatic dry mode. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start 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. Hope this is helpful.

WHY IS DRYER TURNING OFF AND 4 LIGHTS ON PANEL FLASH


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, runs for about 10 minutes then turns off. I also see, that when it turns off, all the lights on the front panel are flashing. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start 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. Hope this is helpful.

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.

Dryer is tumbling but no heat - when I reset it shuts off after about 10 min and the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights are all flashing.


Janet McDonald,

I understand that you are having trouble with your dryer not heating and not running a full cycle and shutting off with the Drying, Cool Down, and Extended Tumble lights flashing. What I suggest is to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle. If it does not complete the cycle and shuts off with the lights flashing, I suggest to either contact the manufacturer or a local appliance technician. This way you will be able to locate the cause of this issue and have it resolved.

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.

FRIGIDAIRE MODEL FEQ1442ES1 LIGHTS FLASH THEN DRYER SHUTS OFF


Hi - From what you have described the unit could possibly have a communication problem with the control board. However, if the unit is producing heat but will not complete cycle please confirmed that the door is closing properly. If it is not, the unit could possibly have a defective door switch or cord/wiring. Either, or, could be faulty at this time. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately since this is not a typical DIY job.

Frigidare AEQ600es2 does not heat. Reports error code E68, but all buttons seem to work.


You will nee The error code E68 is a stuck button error code. I recommend checking each button to make sure it loose in the plastic console. The button should rock side to side a little bit. If all the buttons are loose you can try to reset the unit control by unplugging the dryer for two minutes. If the error code comes back you will need to replace the unit control.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle


Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:
