Frigidaire Front Load Dryer Error Code DR
« on: March 21, 2009, 11:44:49 AM »
My front load dryer won't begin the cycles.  The clean lint filter remains on.  I've cleaned the lint filter and the vent.  I've already had the outside vent professionally cleaned and the dryer still won't begin a dry cycle.  I keep receiving error code DR.  What does that mean and how can I fix it?  Thanks.

No.  I spoke with Electrolux and they said they think it means door but they can't answer why the clean lint filter light won't go off in order for me to use my dryer.

This is indicating an open door circuit. Since the circuit cannot complete, you cannot program any cycles and the "clean filter" light will remain on until you can do so. You will find a technical data sheet inside your dryer, either just under the top panel, or inside the lower panel, if so equipped. It will explain how to test the control board and the door lock assembly.

dr is door error
this generation of dryer has alot of control board failures(the relay for the heat burns the terminals for the wires)
you can inspect these relay connection visably by removing the front control panel

you might want to try setting the machine to the fluff/air dry setting and try starting the dryer, if it starts in air fluff you need to check the connections on that relay
this is not a factory taught test.
its just something a customer pointed out one time and i have tried on many after the fact, and for whatever reason these machines will still run in fluff mode when the board is fried
