Error CodeError Description
AF or F4 E3 Error CodeRestricted airflow: This error code suggests your dryer lint screen or exhaust ventilation is clogged or blocked. It may also be triggered by kinked, crushed, or poorly positioned ductwork. Your dryer needs adequate airflow to run efficiently. Restricted airflow may take longer to dry each load. Fix any issues with the vent or screen and clean them if necessary, then clear the error code from the display by pressing any key.
E# F# Error CodeService required: When you get this error code, it’s not a problem that you can fix on your own. The control panel has a way of detecting internal errors that will require professional repairs.
L2 Error CodeNo/Low line voltage: An L2 error code indicates that no or low line voltage is preventing your dryer’s heating element from turning on. Even when the error code is displayed, the dryer itself will still run.

Most likely, this is due to a problem with your home power supply. Sometimes, a circuit breaker has been tripped, and the solution is an easy fix.

If the error code continues to show, you will need to consult a qualified electrician.
Perform a quick check of your electrical set-up before contacting a professional:

  • Check your circuit breaker/fuse box: Every electric dryer is protected by two fuses/breaker switches. If this is the problem, simply replace the broken fuse with a new one or reset the popped circuit breaker switch.
  • Check power cord: Confirm that you installed the power cable correctly. Refer to the Installation Instructions for details.
  • Reset dryer: Reset the dryer and run a “Timed Dry” cycle. If the error code remains, consult a qualified electrician.
PF Error CodePower failure: A power failure can interrupt the drying cycle, in which case the display will show a PF error code. Press and hold the “Start” button to reset the dryer or clear the error code by pressing the “Power” button.
