Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Thank You

The fuses or breaker is located in your homes fusebox. An electric dryer requires 240 volts and 2-30amp fuses, or 1-30amp breaker. Locate your fusebox and determine if you have fuses or breakers. If fuses, then I recommend changing both 30 amp fuses to eliminate any possibility of being wrong. If it uses a breaker,(If not labled, look for the number 30 on a breaker). Flip the breaker to the OFF position, then back to the ON position. Repeat this action if there are more than 1-30 amp breakers and your dryer still doesn't heat.

     On Frigidaire and other models fuses mounts to the element case in the rear. Maytags also mount to the element box on the top left inside. Most of the time they have a couple of different looks. On Whirlpool and Kenmore, they have 2 wires running to them, and usually sit away from the thermostat. If its inside the rear panel of these units, it will be towards the top by itself, and could be white or black depending on the age, round or sqaure. On GE, Frigidaire, and their look a likes, it will be small and round, with two wires going to them as well. Most of the time these are metallic in color. Maytags can be black or mettalic, and sit on the sides of the boxes

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

    This is the following ssteps you should follow before changing the fuse


    • Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you conduct thisrepair. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.




    • The wires leading to the thermal fuse are connected using metal slip on connectors. Remove the wires by pulling on the connectors, and not the wires themselves. It may be a good idea to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.




    • Remove and discard the faulty thermal fuse. Replace it with a new one. Reassemble your dryer and restore power to the unit. Run your dryer through a cycle to make sure it is functioning as it should.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to replace the board on your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLEQ2152ES, due to receiving an E68 code. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your particular appliance, and should be able to replace the board with ease. Hope this is helpful.

My Gallery series dryer shuts off.


Check your lint screen. If you do not get a complete "lint pattern" you probably have a clogged or partially clogged vent which will cause your dryer to overheat and prematurely shut off. Clean your vent and you'll return to normal operation. If you have a vertical vent (goes up through the roof) get a proffessional to clean it. Dryer vent issues are the #1 cause of house fires according to the U.S Department of Consumer Affairs. Over 16,000 per year.
