I am getting AF message on Maytag Bravos Dryer
I ALWAYS clean out the filter on the machine. I also vacuum or brush the vent area in the machine at least every other month. I have someone in to clean the vent every year yet I have gotten this message twice in the last 2 weeks and the machine is only 13 months old. What is my next step?
"mom1216 AF Restricted Airflow Condition
""AF"" flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not obstructed.
Since you are certain that in your case this is not an issue then you may have a faulty sensor. You will need to replace the faulty sensor to fix this problem. this should most likely be the exhaust thermistor. Give us the exact model number of your dryer so we can try to determine where and what sensor is at fault."
I have a two year old, purchased new from Lowes’, Bravos XL MCT MEDB835DW4 dryer. The AF error code showed up about 1 year into ownership. It doesn’t impact the heat or drying clothes. After reading a lot of forums I went ahead and replaced WP8577274 Dryer Thermistor & WP3392519 Thermal Fuse thinking it would solve the AF problem. It did NOT. I clean the lint trap, vacuum it annually inside the unit and I have a drill attachment that I run out my vent line with minimal debris ever captured. My house was built in 2019 and is less than 2 years old, so current code on exhaust, corners, etc. Anyone have any other ideas on AF code generation? I did check the thermistor and fuse I pulled out w/ my Ohm meter and my thermistor held~11 and my fuse was 0.
