If your Frigidaire Affinity dryer is malfunctioning or stopped drying completely, there may be a problem with the machine that the internal computer has identified, disabling the machine until it is repaired. If you suspect an issue with your dryer but are unsure where to start to identify it, isolate the error code on the display panel to help you narrow down the source of the problem.
Press and release any button on the dryer's display panel to awaken it from idle mode.
Wait for 5 to 10 seconds then push and hold "Start/Pause" and "Cancel" at the same time.
Watch for the indicator lights on the control panel to flash. Read the error code in the display panel. Release the buttons once the error code appears.
