Amana Dryer Error Codes

Amana Dryer Error Code AF or  F4E3

f your Amana dryer displays the error code AF or F4E3, it’s signaling a critical issue – restricted air flow. Understanding this error code is crucial for maintaining the efficiency of your dryer and preventing potential hazards. Let’s delve into the details of this error and explore effective solutions.

  • AF or F4E3
  • Issue: Restricted Air Flow


  • The lint screen or vent is clogged.
  • The vent is crushed, kinked, or has too many turns.
  • The dryer continues to run despite the error.

Action Required:

  1. Inspect the Lint Screen: Begin by checking the lint screen for any lint buildup. Clean it thoroughly to ensure optimal airflow. A clogged lint screen is a common cause of restricted air flow.
  2. Examine the Vent: Inspect the dryer vent for any obstructions, such as lint accumulation or debris. A clear, unobstructed vent is essential for proper air circulation.
  3. Check for Vent Restrictions: Ensure that the vent is not crushed or kinked. Straighten out any kinks and address any physical damage to the vent that might be hindering airflow.
  4. Reduce Vent Turns: If your vent has too many twists and turns, it can impede airflow. Consider reconfiguring the vent to minimize bends, allowing for smoother air passage.
  5. Clear the Error Code: The dryer may continue to run with the error present. To clear the code from the display, simply touch any key. The dryer will then return to displaying the estimated time remaining.

Preventing Future Issues:

  • Regularly clean the lint screen after each use to avoid buildup.
  • Schedule routine checks of the dryer vent to prevent blockages.
  • Opt for a straighter and shorter vent configuration to promote efficient airflow.

If despite these steps, the AF or F4E3 error persists, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance. A technician can perform a thorough inspection of the dryer, identifying and resolving any underlying issues with the air flow system.
