Frigidaire, now owned by the company Electrolux, is one of the oldest appliance companies in the United States. Frigidaire dryers are available in most stores in the U.S. where appliances are sold. Since 1990, every model of frigidaire dryer has a digital screen that flashes error codes when there are mechanical problems. Each error code corresponds to a specific malfunction.

E24 or E25

These error codes indicate a problem with the thermistor, the heat control mechanism in the dryer. The E24 code appears when there is a problem with the wiring between the thermistor and the control pad, or when there is a short in the thermistor itself. E25 appears when there is an open circuit. If you replace the thermistor and the error code still appears, check the wiring. If you have replaced the wiring and the thermistor, the problem may be in the digital sensors.


This error code indicates a problem with the automatic dryer shut-off. This code typically appears when the dryer has exceeded the cycle program time. A dryer with a malfunctioning shut-off is a fire hazard. You should stop using your dryer until this problem has been fixed.


This error code indicates a problem with the dryer's heater. This code appears when the thermistor has not registered a heat change during the drying cycle. You may need to replace your dryer's control board, the piece of equipment that controls the heater. You may also have a problem with the wiring between the control board and the main digital controls. This error code is difficult to diagnose without electrical diagnostic tools.


This is a common error code that indicates a problem with the digital keypad. This code usually appears when one of the keys in the keypad is stuck in the down position. You may be able to manually unstick the broken key to restore normal function. If this doesn't work, you will need to replace your keypad.


E8C indicates repeated tripping of the safety thermostat. The safety thermostat shuts down the dryer for dangerously high temperatures that are outside normal operating levels (levels vary from dryer to dryer). Sometimes codes E8C and E4A will both flash. This usually means there is a problem with the shut-off controls rather than with the thermostat.

E10, E11 or E12

These codes indicate communication errors in the dryer's microprocessor or built-in memory.
