Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Does any error code display and what happens when it shuts down

I am trying it now on air fluff. It's gone from 20 mins to 14 mins and seems to be stuck on 14 mins. It's now gone back to 15 mins

This is sounding like a bad main control almost for sure, which is super common on that unit. The issue is the do not make it anymore, but you could send it in to APPLIANCETIMERS.COM to get it repaired if you would like or here is the part number if you want to try and get a used one.


All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Air fluff has not shut down yet, seems to be normal, it's down to 4 mins
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Note with it empty it may shut off if the sensors do not sense any wet clothes.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Without clothes, it seems to be running fine
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Only on air fluff right?
