Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag Bravos XL Dryer. The AF light keeps coming on. I have airflow to the outside vent, I have had the vent from the house checked by my contractor, there seems to nothing wrong. Could this be a sensor issue?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I bought my washer and dryer in November. I've always had this issue.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm not sure I understand your question. What work?
