If your dryer is STILL heating, but your dryer is showing signs of heavy condensation or longer dry times, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. As the dryer exhausts, moisture from your clothing is circulated with the warm air. If you have any restrictions in the exhaust system, the moisture will collect inside the ducting and drum. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:
Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. If you do determine you have an internal component problem, the next link can give you some helpful advice on how to troubleshoot a dryer with a no heat problem:http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574266-thorough_dryer_advicehttp://www.fixya.com/support/r3576548-dryer_runs_but_does_not_heatIf you have any questions, please post back and let me know.

Hi Thanks for
using FixYa. Error code AD means air/auto dry. This
type of dryer has no thermo fuse which is a fuse like part that tends to break
disengaging the heating element, there for the dryer has a busted heating element,
you’ll need to replace it then it should be good to go. Normally runs parts and
labor about 150. Please do accept the solution if the issue is
resolved or else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
This is this is the "program Timeout Fault". Meaning the drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle.Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6
seconds to exit test modes. Position cycle selector to NORMAL,
temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START. Check for anything
that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower
fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closet with solid door,
or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If
dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic control. Hope i helped you.
A1Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
