D80, D90, D95: Clogged Dryer Vent & Restricted Airflow Decoded

The error codes D80, D90, and D95 typically relate to problems with the exhaust duct system in certain models of clothes dryers. These codes indicate issues with the dryer's ability to properly exhaust air. The exact meaning of these codes can vary depending on the specific model of the dryer, but generally, they signal a restriction in the airflow. This can occur due to lint buildup, blockages in the ductwork, or improper installation, causing the machine to detect an airflow issue.

Here is a general breakdown of D80, D90, D95: Clogged Dryer Vent & Restricted Airflow Decoded:

  • D80: This code signifies that the dryer is 80% blocked. It suggests a significant airflow restriction in the exhaust vent or duct.

  • D90: Similar to D80, D90 indicates a 90% blockage in the exhaust system, meaning that the airflow is even more restricted.

  • D95: This code implies a 95% blockage in the exhaust duct. It indicates a severe restriction in the airflow, causing the dryer to stop working efficiently.

To resolve these issues, you should check the exhaust system for blockages, ensuring that the vent is not obstructed by lint or other debris. Clearing any blockages and ensuring proper ventilation can help alleviate these error codes.

As for the "AF" code, it is a common error code on some dryers, indicating an "Air Flow" issue. This code appears when the dryer is having problems with airflow due to blockages or restrictions in the exhaust system. It usually means that the machine isn’t venting properly, which could lead to longer drying times or other operational problems.

To troubleshoot an "AF" error:

  1. Check the lint screen: Clean the lint screen before every load to ensure proper airflow.

  2. Inspect the vent system: Make sure the vent hose is not kinked, crushed, or clogged with lint. Ensure that the venting system is clear and free from any obstructions.

  3. Verify the outside vent: Check the exterior dryer vent to ensure it opens when the dryer is running and closes when it’s off. Make sure there are no obstructions like debris or animal nests.

Clearing lint and ensuring proper ventilation should help resolve the "AF" error and improve the dryer's performance.

However, if these troubleshooting steps don’t resolve the issues, or if you're not confident in dealing with the dryer's internal components, it might be best to contact a professional technician for further assistance. #andersonventcleaning
