    I am having the same problem, but it is not from cold. It has happened in the past, but eventually goes away and operates normally. This time, however, it is staying!

  • nappiecleo Dec 08, 2008

    I have experienced the same problem for the last year. It happens intermittently and at one time I did think it was due to the cold weather, but all my tricks are not working this time. I also tried heating up the room and using a warm blow dryer to heat up the back and front of the panel area. I tried unplugging and replugging the electrical connections and even left it unplugged over night. Nothing is working this time. :(

I had this problem last year on several cold days (14 degrees F). I solved it by heating up the laundry room with a portable heater and heating up the display console with a hair dryer. Within minutes my dryer was back to normal and would run.

However...I am now having this problem again on cold days (25 degrees F) a year later and I so far am unable to trick my dryer into running. This time I might need to call the repair man.

This machine was spinning with an uneven load and stopped working so I emptied the machine and took it apart. I found the shock absorber on the tub needed to be put back together so I fixed that problem...


The error E68 means the ccu has sensed a stuck button on the console. MANY times this is a false error and means that either the ccu or interface must be replaced, but SOMETIMES, there really is a stuck button. TRy to run a diagnostic using the instructions I have provided below, let me know if you need any help with it.
1. Press and hold Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control. The buzzer will sound
1 time and "rES" will be shown briefly in the display.
2. Immediately after, rotate cycle selector knob 5 turns counter-clockwise to the second position from the bottom.
Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds. The control will enter test mode,
the buzzer will sound 3 times and all LED's will rapidly flash.
After entering the test mode, the cycle selector knob can now be rotated to select the following tests:
Rotate the cycle selector knob clockwise from the starting position:
0 turns: All LED's will flash.
1 turn: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. "H" and the control thermistor reading will toggle
back and forth in the display.
2 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Cool Down LED is lit and "AF" (Air Fluff) is displayed.
3 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Drying and Cool Down LED's are lit and numbers appear in the
display showing moisture sensor readings. Opening the door (press in on door switch plunger) and placing
a finger on the both moisture sense bars at the same time will make the numbers decrease. In controls that
do not have a digit display, the More Dry LED should be ON. Opening the door (press in on door switch
plunger) and placing a finger on the both moisture sense bars at the same time will make the Damp LED
come on.
4 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off.
Key test:
a. When the Temperature key is pressed, all the temperature LED's should light.
b. When the Dryness key is pressed, all the dryness level LED's should light.
c. When the Options or Select key is pressed, all the Option LED's should light.
d. When the Start/Pause key is pressed, all the cycle status LED's should light.
e. When the Cancel key is pressed, all the cycle status LED's should light.
5 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Cool Down LED is lit. Control thermistor reading is displayed.
6 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. Control thermistor reading is displayed.
7-11 turns: All LED's will flash
To EXIT test mode, press and hold the Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds or disconnect power
from dryer. Dryer will be reset for regular operation.
If you cant even enter this mode at all, your interface will have to be replaced. There is no way to determine whether its the intrface OR ccu, but in my experience, it's usualy the interface that ends up needing replacement. Here is the part to order.

E68 error code


This E68 is a stuck keypad.


The error E68 means the CCU has sensed a stuck button on the console.

Try turning the machine on while holding down "0" and "8". when it displays test mode, enter 690 and then press start. press enter on the screen and wait for the display to read "reboot the machine". This is a low level format of the hard drive. if this does not work, the hard drive will have to be replaced.

All this is doing is letting you know that the Auto dry sensors are kicked in and checking to see how dry the clothing is.

My Brother MFC-235C shows print unable 32 read user manual but I dont have a manual


The message "Print Unable 32" or "Machine Error 32" will appear on the LCD display if paper or labels are stuck inside the printer or drum unit.
:
This will also appear if there is either a mechanical issue or just a problem with a sensor possibly software.
:
1) The way to resolve this issue is to make sure there is no paper in between the rollers or on top of the print heads (if applicable).

2) If there is no paper the you will need to hard reset the printer which will restore to manufacuter settings and reset software.

Hold down the Menu botton while plugging in the power cable. The display should read "Maintenance." let go of the menu button and then punch in 91. The display should read "Param Init." The unit will beep once. Then type 99. The unit will exit maintenance mode.

This only works for maybe 30% of the time.
:
3) If this does not work then : Refer to Manufacturer or return the item.

IF PRINTER DOES NOT HAVE A MENU BUTTON:

1)Turn the printer power switch OFF. Check that the front cover is closed.

2)Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button until the Toner, Drum and Paper LEDS are lit.
3)Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.
4)Press the GO button 8 times. The Ready LED will flash briefly while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the READY LED will be lit.
