Usually just means that certain button that does both functions needs replacing which is usually a simple fix

Start simple. Check for the basic things that will not let the dryer run. Broken door switch. A loose wire on the door switch...those kinds of things. The same would apply to the start button. R

    Start simple. Check for the basic things that will not let the dryer run. Broken door switch. A loose wire on the door switch...those kinds of things. The same would apply to the start button. Keep looking and you will find your problem.
    ....Ok, if not, you can also check you have power getting past the main fuze/relay to the motor.

SOURCE: dryer doesn't start

Check door strikes, door switch and belt. Dryer won't work if the belt is broken or it doesn't sense the door closed.

SOURCE: The dryer has '31' showing

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The service manual for this dryer is 16023110

From reading the manual there are 2 errors 3 and 1. Error 1 is a thermistor short sensed.

01- Thermistor / If temperature> 200 degrees / Short Sensed for 2 minutes.

Check for:

- Clogged lint screen.

- Restricted vent system.
- Failed thermistor.

Make sure the unit is completely unplugged to do the following steps.

-----Inside the control panel the thermistor wiring is connected to J4 pins 1 and 2
The thermistor should read 10,000 ohms at 70 deg F and 1094 ohms at 150F

03 = Door Circuit Failure

Check for:

- Loose or open wire terminals in Door Sense circuit.


This check you would read from "N" Center terminal of the power cord terminal block to Pin 3 of Conn BB2 on the main control board. (Door Closed) You must read resistance or the door switch has failed.


These are the tests I would have to do if you called for service.


If neither of the above show failures... respond here and we will see what we can sort out via the service manual.


Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

SOURCE: I have a brand new frigidaire affinity dryer that i tried to use for the firat time today, it will start and then after a few seconds it pauses itself. I can hit start again and it will continue to do

I would contact the dealer or Frigidaire (GE). Also, check your owner's manual's troubleshooting section.

Clothes dryer does not work when power turned on at wall. Sounder goes continuously, no lights on panel and panel buttons do nothing


If it didn't do that before removing the capacitor & wires then I would assume it is something you have done wrong. Maybe put a wire back in wrong place. There is a wiring diagram on back of dryer. Motor not starting could be the capacitor, you really need to test it with a capacitor tester. It may also be the motor bearings seizing up. If motor is tight to turn when belt is off then it will be time for a new dryer. Too expensive to replace the motor on such an old dryer.

I have a frigidaire affinity dryer serial #xd72014132. It runs for a minute or so and then shuts off and displays e68. The buttons do not seem to be stuck and work properly. Any idea what is wrong with it?

My frigidaire dyer comes on then the pause message appears. These are new appliances.


Hello barbarada180 - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.

How do you ge codes on a electrolux front laod dryer?


* Wake the washer by pressing any button. * Wait 5 seconds. * Press and hold the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons simultaneously. * All LED's will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LED's. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons are pressed. A two second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

The dryer just stopped and now wont turn on


WAKE THE WASHER BY PRESSING ANY BUTTON.

WAIT 5 SECONDS.

PRESS AND HOLD THE START AND PAUSE/CANCEL BUTTONS SIMULTANEOUSLY.

ALL LED'S WILL GO BLANK AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS THE CONTROL WILL SIGNAL THE STORED CODE USING AUDIBLE BEEPS AND BLINKING LED'S. THE CONTROL WILL REPEATEDLY SIGNAL THE CODE, AS LONG AS THE START AND PAUSE/CANCEL BUTTONS ARE PRESSED. A TWO-SECOND PAUSE BETWEEN REPEATS AFFORDS YOU THE ABILITY TO MAKE ACCURATE COUNTS TO IDENTIFY THE CORRECT ERROR CODES.


PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: ON A SMALL NUMBER OF WASHERS WITH SERIAL

NUMBER PREFIX XC4, IF THE PREVIOUS PROCEDURE DOES NOT PREFORM AS

SPECIFIED, FOLLOW THE OPTION BELOW:

* FOLLOW ALL PREVIOUS STEPS BUT INSTEAD OF PRESSING START AND PAUSE/CANCEL BUTTONS, PRESS AND HOLD OPTIONS AND PAUSE/CANCEL BUTTONS."


*THE CONTROL WILL PAUSE FOR 2 SECONDS, THEN REPEAT THE CODE AS LONG AS THE TWO BUTTONS ARE PRESSED AND HELD."


NOTE: A LETTER APPEARING IN THE CODE STANDS FOR A NUMBER HIGHER THAN NINE: A=10 B=11 C=12 D=13 E=14 F=15 "


"EXAMPLE CODE F1: THE FIRST DIGIT WOULD BE 15 AND THE SECOND WOULD BE 1. IF THIS CODE WOULD APPEAR ON A WASHER IN THE GOOD MODEL LINE, THE FIVE INDICATOR LIGHTS WOULD BLINK FIFTEEN TIMES AND THE START INDICATOR LIGHT WOULD

Frigidaire faqe7011lw0 dryer having issues, not heating up and shuts off after 10 minutes My dryer model number is faqe7011lw0. It seems to start up, and then after about 10 minutes, consistently, it shuts off and has a bunch of blinking lights on the right side of the control panel. It started off with an error code of E4A which states "The drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle". I got that code to go away and then i got another code of "E4B" which states "Temperature reading of control thermistor has not changed in a certain amount of time". The second error code makes more sense because I notice in the 10 minutes that it runs, there seems to be no heat, so i feel something is causing the dryer to not heat up. The troubleshooting for this states to test a relay on the control panel, but I wanted to see if anyone else had this issue before. The weird thing about this is, if I run the dryer empty, the cycle completes the whole way through, but with wet clothes, it shuts off exactly at 10 minutes, no matter what cycle i set it to. I thought maybe this was a sign I had too large of a load in, so I took out about half the clothes, and ran it then. I still got the same issue. So I am kind of confused why when I run it empty, I get the full cycle with no error code, but with anything in the dryer at all, it stops after 10 minutes and gives me an error code. FYI, I have check the exhaust too to make sure it isn't clogged with lint, and it is wide open.
