Hi Steve, thank you for your question!

Generally, error code E11 means that it has detected an internal checksum error or processor error. First check to see if it is a false error code by resetting the power to your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, your dryer may have a faulty main control board. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. It is always a good idea to get the appropriate diagnosis prior to making any unnecessary part replacements.

Best of luck!

SOURCE: Have a Electrolux front dryer. Just replaced the


E11 is Drying error with RMC Maximum allowable RMC time exceeded. That means that the electronic control did not receive signal from moisture sensor that drying cycle has finished (RMC means residual moisture sensor).
This should happen only on RMC controlled cycled.

To start, you replace the timer board only when there is clear on board fault (melting components etc.) , or when everything else is tested OK. If the machine was never completing the cycle before, then it can be a faulty RMC sensor. Check also the wiring from control board to RMC.

SOURCE: New g.e. Dryer displays a fault code e61 on screen

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you should have a electrician work on your wiring, with luck no further damage has happened, E61 means you have the neutral and the L2 wire either reversed or in the wrong position.

ENTER TEST MODE SEQUENCE by doing the following . 1.Disconnect the power for 30 seconds.
2.Reconnect the power and within 30 seconds press the sequence of buttons listed below.
3.Press the "SIGNAL"button.
4.Press the "DELAY START"button.
5.Press the "SIGNAL"button.
6.Press the "DELAY START"button.

Now after you have fixed the reveresed wiring problem you will need to remove the fault code fromt he memory otherwise the machine will not work. To remove the fault code do the following ENTER TEST MODE
SEQUENCE (cont.)
You will notice "t01". To choose the test mode that you want toverify, turn the knob to the desired test mode setting.
Push the start/pause button.To cancel the test mode, press on "power".
You will be able to choose another test mode and again press on "start/pause".
The display error codes test allows the service technician to examine and clear the fault log.
The display error codes test allows the service technician to examine and clear the fault log.
The control shall display the most recent error in the fault logupon entry into the display error codes test. If there are no errors in the fault log, the no error code "E00"shall be displayed on the 7-segment display.

The control shall clear the displayed error from the fault log if the start key is pressed during the display error codes test. After clearing thedisplayed error from the fault log, the appliance shall display the next most recent error from the fault log.

After clearing all errors from the fault log, the control shall display the no error "E00"code on the 7-segment display.
The control shall log the last 8 error codes in the non-volatile memory stored in a circular list.

The control shall avoid logging multiple instances of the same error code. now unplug the appliance for about 30 seconds and replug and everything should be fine.

Frigidaire affinity dryer code ad

Hey Cindy, thanks for your submission!
I see that your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "ad". The "ad" error code will display with the "Auto Dry" cycle has been selected. If you did not select the auto dry cycle I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. Once power has been restored to the dryer and if the error code is still persistent you may need to have a replacement control panel or wiring harness installed. I would recommend having electrical parts replaced by a professional technician this will prevent any personal injury. Best of luck! -Matt

Start for just 1/3 second then stop with error PF ?

Hey Andy, thank you for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire dryer, GLEQ2152ES, is running for a few seconds and then displaying an error code of "PF". The error code of "PF" means there is a power failure and this could be an issue within your control panel or power source. I would suggest performing a reset, this could help clear our any miscommunications within the panel, and you can do this by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. I hope that this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

Hello Robert, I appreciate your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "E64". An "E64" error code means that the heater has an open circuit this could be an issue with your heater, wiring harness, or a miscommunication within your control panel.

If the reset does not help clear out the error code, you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope that this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

    Whats the difference between e10 and e11 error codes on frigidaire afinity f/l washers?

    Thank you for your post, greg aguilar!
    Both error codes "E10" and "E11" stand for fill time is too long on your Frigidaire washer. This could be an issue with the water pressure coming into your washer the psi must be above 30 psi. If it is not you may need to correct the pressure issue. If it is check to assure that the hose is not kinked or blocked. You may need to replace the water inlet valve, pressure sensor, or control panel. I would recommend having a professional technician come out to provide a proper diagnosis for repair. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

    M frigidaire washer model gltf2940fs1 shows me a e11 code

    Thanks for your post, friend!

    From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer, GLTF2940FS1, is displaying an "E11" error code. Typically, "E11" stands for fill time too long which means you could have an issue within your pressure sensor or control board. I would recommend a reset on your washer and that can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue you may want to consult with a technician for proper diagnosis. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

    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.
