These codes are voltage error codes, which mean something is wrong with the voltage levels in your dryer.

Here’s what to do if you get one of these errors:

  • For electric dryers, make sure the power cord is correctly installed and the voltage level is correct.

These error codes indicate that one or more of the buttons on the panel are jammed or are being pushed in continuously. When this happens, you’ll get one of the above error codes, and your dryer won’t operate.

Here’s what to do if you get one of these error codes:

  1. Turn the dryer off. 
  2. Check each of the buttons to see if any of them are damaged. If damaged, the buttons or the whole panel will need to be replaced.
  3. If the buttons are not damaged, turn your dryer back on, and see if the error code has disappeared. If not, you’ll need to get a qualified technician to come and inspect your dryer.

  2. If the latch is working correctly, turn your dryer off and on, and then check if the error code has gone. If not, you’ll need to get a qualified technician to come and look at your dryer.
