Question about Frigidaire Dryers

1 Answer

Frigidaire dryer heating up but not completing cycle.

Our Frigidaire dryer will run and heat up but then part way through a cycle it will stop and the clothes are not dry. The screen still shows AD and the four lights are flashing. You can start the cycle again and the cycle will run longer and the clothes will eventually dry, but it never finishes a cycle. The drier the clothes are, the longer it will run. We ran a diagnostic and get an error code r5e-but this code doesn't show up anywhere to explain what the problem is. We replaced a high temp sensor(?) but that didn't fix the problem. Just trying to figure out what to try next.

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

SOURCE: My Frigidaire dryer has an error code of AD and is

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

SOURCE: anyone know what code t0 means? Dryer will start

To = Thermistor Open error.

The Thermistor resistance is very high.

Check for:
- Clogged lint screen.
- Restricted vent system.
- Check Thermistor resistance.

Replace themistor if out of range.

When the dryer is on ad is on the screen what does it mean


Hi Lilly-ann Gilbert,
I understand you are showing an AD on the dryer screen while your dryer is running. No worries. All this means is that it is on an auto dry cycle and is running as it should.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire electric dryer error code AD


Hello - Typically error code AD indicates that the Auto Dry option has been selected. Using no heat in any Auto Dry cycle will result in long drying times and/or wet loads at the end of cycle. I would suggest selecting other option or resetting the unit. You may either unplug it or flip the household breaker off for approximately two minutes. Restart unit, select a normal cycle and verify if it will heat. If the dryer does not heat the unit it could possibly have a faulty heating element, blower assembly or a communication problem with the control panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer shows error AD


AD = Auto Dry

If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry and the AD error. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.

My frigidaire dryer isn't heating up..and after 20min.. is displaying AD??


Is this the only code you are showing...The AD indicates the dryer is in the Auto Dry cycle....You most likely have a blow thermal fuse...A faulty heater coil...You would need to break dryer down and test components with a meter.
Here is a tech sheet you can download...This will walk you thru the troubleshooting.

Dryer shuts off, no heat, AD code


During normal operation, the display may show: “ad” - dryer is in an auto dry cycle. “dn” - cycle is done in auto dry. “PF” - a power failure to the board has occurred. “Err” - an error has been detected. “LOC” - control lock is activated. “PAU” - cycle has been interrupted.

LED display on dryer reads AD???


All this is doing is letting you know that the Auto dry sensors are kicked in and checking to see how dry the clothing is.
