The dryer is producing unusual sounds or excessive vibration. Ensure the appliance is leveled properly and check for loose components.
F27: Fluff Filter Warning
The fluff or lint filter requires cleaning. Accumulated lint can restrict airflow and affect drying efficiency.
F28: Water Drain Fault
For condenser dryers, there’s an issue draining the collected water. Check the drain hose for blockages or kinks.
F29: Thermal Fuse Fault
The thermal fuse, a safety device, might have tripped due to excessive heat. It may need replacement to restore dryer function.
F30: Grounding Error
The dryer might not be grounded properly, posing a potential safety risk. Ensure that the plug is correctly connected and the grounding is secure.
F31: External Duct Blockage
The external exhaust duct may have a blockage, restricting airflow. Check and clean the duct to ensure proper ventilation.
F32: Water Collection Tray Issue
The tray where condensation water is collected is either full or not detected. Empty the tray or ensure it’s properly inserted.
F33: Control Board Communication Error
There’s a communication issue between the main control board and subsidiary components. Check for loose connections or potential damage to the control board.
F34: Bearing Wear Warning
