My Affinity dryer stopped heating and code E5 appeared. Should I replace the control board?
Answer Hello Tom,
Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START. Measure voltage across terminals on relay RL2 (heater relay) on electronic control. If meter reads 240V on electric models and 120V on gas models, replace electronic control. If meter reads zero, remove power from dryer. Disconnect wire going to NO terminal on the relay RL2. Reconnect power and measure voltage drop between terminal COM on relay RL2 and neutral. If meter reads zero, wire between incoming line and relay RL2 is open. If meter reads 120V, check the rest of the heater circuit.
My dryer will not start, error code e4a flashes after pushing the start button. The timer runs normally, and it clicks when I push the start button, but the dryer will not start.
With the unit not starting you will want to check the thermal fuse on the blower housing and check the door switch to make sure that it is good. These would be the most common things for failing.
Dryer shuts off after 2-3 min. Thermal limit tested ok. Thermister replaced. Control board???
Answer Hello Dave. If you have to wait a few minutes before it will restart, you will need to order and replace the motor on the unit.
