BAD IDEA THERE IS A REASON IT IS BUZZING? FIND THAT OUT FIRST

Frigidaire... | Answered on Mar 31, 2016


Hello Lidia, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is not heating and displaying error codes "FDL" and "RL". I am showing that the codes you have provided are not valid error codes. I would recommend performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. I see that you have already replaced the igniter; however, if you continue to have issues with the error codes I would suggest having a professional technician out. This will help you avoid any further unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Looks like E61 is a heat relay related.
Does the dryer heat OK?

Gas Dryer no heat: or shuts down soon after heating CHECK:

Thermal Fuse
If the air flow in the dryer is restricted, the temperature in the heating chamber can get hot enough to blow the thermal fuse. If the fuse blows, it cuts power to the coils that control the gas valve. The fuse is usually mounted to the exhaust duct just inside the back panel. You can check its continuity with an ohmmeter. If, after disconnecting the fuse, you get any reading other than 0 when you touch the leads of the meter to its terminals, it has blown. There's no way to restore it -- you'll have to install a replacement.

Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?

Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.

Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.

Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

heres how to get them :


READING ERROR CODES

1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O'clock position.

2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.

3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.

4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O'clock position. The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid

(Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator

light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to

confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times

the lights flash. Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light

will flash four times indicating the 4. The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same

time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

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 E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. The four indicator lights would blink four

times and the START indicator light would blink ten times. Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart below.

To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To clear code, press the Select button. Code will be cleared when mode is exited.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

10%), check wiring between thermistor and electronic control. If good,

replace electronic control.

E4A Program Timeout

Fault

The drying time has exceeded

program time for that cycle.

Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes.

Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT

and touch START. Check for anything that would extend dry times such as:

no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in

closet with solid door, or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or

dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic

control.

E5B Heater Fault (no

heating)

Temperature reading of control

thermistor has not changed in a

certain amount of time.

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.

E68 Key (button) Struck

Fault

One of the keys (buttons) is stuck

closed (active).

Enter function test mode and perform key (button) test to determine which

button is at fault. Carefully free the and perform the test again. If button is

free but the key struck code still exists, replace electronic control.

E8C Too many trips in a

period of time.

The safety (high limit) thermostat

has tripped too many times within

a certain period of program time.

Check for blocked lint filter, blocked exhaust, air leaks around air duct,

broken blower fan blades, worn or loose drum seals, dryer installed in closet

with solid doors or door seal not correctly seated.

EAF Watch Dog Reset Microcontroller has been reset by

internal Watchdog timer.
Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

Typically error code E4A indicates that your Frigidaire dryer is experiencing a program timeout fault or max time has exceeded for that cycle. A professional normally checks for anything that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closed with solid door, faulty connection in moisture sensor bar circuit. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dryer. Hope this helps!

Hi Friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand your Frigidaire dryer is experiencing a shutoff issue. It is possible that you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. Let's try resetting your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dryer. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, you may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.

Best regards! - Z

Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I see that you would like to know the pricing of a replacement control board for your Frigidaire dryer. May I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located on upper front as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand.

In the meantime, error code E66 is associated with the heating element relay. A technician would typically check the ohm resistance of the relay to determine if it is the cause of the error code. If the readings are incorrect, the heating element more than likely needs replacing. If the readings are incorrect, it could potentially be the main control board. This is not a normal DIY job so you may want to connect with a local technician to determine the exact diagnosis. I hope this helps! - Z
