Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

ok Can you by chance at least tell we whom the manufacture of the appliance is ?

And what kind of an appliance the question is on?

By vent I`m assuming it is a dryer ,but that may not be the case!

IT IS A MAGIC CHEF VENTLESS WASHER DRYER COMBO
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok Typically, this is caused by reduced airflow resulting from a clogged vent duct or fan motor due to lint and residue buildup.

Were you getting this error before you cleaned the vent ?

And have you had anyone check the dryer blower fan motor assembly?

IT GAVE ME ONE A BOUT A WEEK AGO THEN I WASHED SEVERAL LOAD. THEN THIS AM I T DID IT Again, but then I switche4d to rince cycle,and when it finished my son took it apart and cleand the vent all the way to the end and put it back together and the error came back on is there a reset button .
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately there is no reset button .

This is normally sensed by the inlet and outlet thermostats , so if the dryer was taken apart and thoroughly cleaned you may have a thermostat issue .

I could give you more information once you get me the model number of the unit .
