Error Code Condition Check/Repair Shop Parts
AF or F-30 Exhaust air flow restriction The exhaust air flow to the outside of your home is restricted. Unplug the dryer and clear the exhaust air duct system going to the outside of your home.
PF Power failure A power failure occurred while the dryer was running. Press Start to continue the cycle or press Stop to clear the display. If this code frequently appears, check the power cord and replace it if it's damaged.
Power cord
F-01 Main electronic control board failure Unplug the dryer for 5 minutes and the plug the dryer back in. If the code reappears, replace the main electronic control board.

Main electronic control board
F-02 User interface keypad failure A stuck button on the user interface control board causes this code. If you can't free the stuck key, replace the user interface control board.
User interface control board
F-20 or F-21 Heater relay failure The heater relay on the main electronic control board failed. Unplug the dryer and replace the main electronic control board.
Main electronic control board
F-22 Exhaust thermistor failure Unplug the dryer. Check the resistance of the exhaust thermistor (temperature sensor). It should measure about 10,000 ohms at room temperature. If the thermistor is defective, replace it.

Thermistor
F-23 Exhaust thermistor failure Unplug the dryer. Check the resistance of the exhaust thermistor. It should measure about 10,000 ohms at room temperature. If the thermistor is defective, replace it.

Thermistor
F-24 or F-25 Inlet thermistor failure Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the inlet thermistor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If wire connections are okay, measure the resistance through the inlet thermistor. You should measure near 50,000 ohms at room temperature. If you measure infinite resistance or near zero ohms of resistance, replace the inlet thermistor/high limit thermostat assembly.

F-31 Low L2 voltage The L2 leg of 240 volt power is below 30 volts. Check the house circuit breakers for the dryer and reset the L2 breaker if it's tripped. Unplug the dryer and check the power cord wire connections on the terminal block. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the power cord if it's damaged. Have an electrician check the 240 volt power supply for the dryer.

F-40 Communication error between the main electronic control board and the blower motor control board Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the blower motor control board and the main electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. A blown thermal fuse will prevent the blower motor control board from getting power, triggering the F-40 code. Check the resistance of the thermal fuse. Replace the thermal fuse if you measure infinite resistance through the fuse. Check the wire harness connections between the blower motor and the blower motor control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check to see if the blower fan spins freely. If not, check for a clog or restriction in the fan housing. Replace the blower fan if it's damaged. If the wire connections, thermal fuse and blower fan are okay, replace the blower motor control board.

F-41 Blower motor failure Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the blower motor and the blower motor control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check to see if the blower fan spins freely. If not, check for a clog or restriction in the fan housing. Replace the blower fan if it's damaged. If the blower fan is okay, replace the blower motor control board.

F-42 or F-43 Undervoltage failure Unplug the dryer and check the power cord connections on the terminal block. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the power cord if damaged. Have an electrician check the power supply voltage to the dryer.
Power cord
F-44 Blower motor control board failure Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the blower motor control board and the main electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. A blown thermal fuse will prevent the blower motor control board from getting power, triggering the F-44 code. Check the resistance of the thermal fuse. Replace the thermal fuse if you measure infinite resistance through the fuse. Check the wire harness connections between the blower motor and the blower motor control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check to see if the blower fan spins freely. If not, check for a clog or restriction in the fan housing. Replace the blower fan if it's damaged. If the wire connections, thermal fuse and blower fan are okay, replace the blower motor control board.

F-45 Blower motor speed sensor failure Check the wire harness connections between the blower motor and the blower motor control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check for a clogged exhaust vent because a clogged vent can restrict fan speed and trigger the F-45 code. Check to see if the blower fan spins freely. If not, check for a clog or restriction in the fan housing. Replace the blower fan if the fan spins freely and the exhaust vent is clear.

F-46 Blower motor failure Check the wire harness connections between the blower motor and the blower motor control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check to see if the blower fan spins freely. If not, check for a clog or restriction in the fan housing. Replace the blower fan if the fan spins freely and the exhaust vent is clear.
