What is the fix for E63? Have a 2 year old affinity dryer


The E63 error indicates an open circuit for the heating element. The wiring or the heating element may be bad. Check the wiring for any shorted wires (touching the cabinet); replace any damaged wiring. Otherwise, replace the heating element.

You should check that the venting for the unit isn't blocked. Usually the element lasts longer than 2 years. However, the heating system is only covered by the one year warranty.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number if you want more information on the replacement parts.

Dryer is taking much longer to dry clothes than it once did. Took 3 hours to dry clothes last night and had an unusal odor. Dryer is 3 years old, the dryer vent is not clogged up.


If your dryer is STILL heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer that is clogged, or has restricted air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to OVERHEAT. This will eventually will lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
FYI: There are no adjustments that can be made to any of the internal thermostats or heating element to make it run at a higher temperature. All these components have a fixed setting. If the dryer still produces heat, the heating element is working. If the dryer is clogged, however, the internal protection devices, such as the Hi-Limit Thermostat and Internal Bias Thermostat will shut the heating element off prematurely to prevent the dryer from overheating, and to prevent damage to the heating element. Eventually, the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) or Thermal Fuse will trip and the dryer will not run.or produce heat.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

CLOTHES DRYER HEATING ELEMENT


The heating element is SUPPOSED to cycle on and off. That is normal. There is an Internal Bias Thermostat and a Hi-Limit Thermostat that help regulate the internal operating temperature of the dryer. However, if you are experiencing longer dry times, or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will actually take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter than usual in many cases and the heating element will appear to glow brighter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information is helpful.

NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat beginning to fail.

The dryer heats, the drum turms, hot air circulates, but the clothes don't dry


If you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some advice on things to check before assuming you have a malfunction with the dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If the dryer can't exhaust properly, the moisture is retained in the dryer drum and your clothes stay wet, longer. A dryer in a clogged or poorply ventilated state can also cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This can also become a fire hazard if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call.

If you still have problems, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer not heating Enough


Ceck the vent hose and vent. Make sure these are clear of obstruction. This is tipical of poor venting. The dryer can`t remove the moist air to dry the clothes properly.

Bad heat in two year old GE DBXR463ED2WW electric dyer. Not as hot as used to be, takes longer to dry!


If you're experiencing a dryer that requires a longer time to dry, you may want to view this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention to the first major paragraph. I know the link is for a no heat problem, however, if you have a dryer that is starved for air, the heating circuits will eventually fail. In most cases, a no heat, or longer dry time problem is directly associated to clogged ventilation, kinked dryer vent hoses, improperly installed vent ducting, a clogged blower fan assembly, or rodents. Yes...the last one isn't always fun, but I have found bird nests, mice nests and even snakes inside dryer vents, clogging the air flow. The symptims were all the same - a dryer that would not dry properly. Before you assume you have a component going bad, take a good look at the way your dyrer is installed and inspect it thoroughly for what might be a good cleaning. The outsiode dryer vent should be at least 12 inches off the ground and a louver is recommended to cover the end to prevent critters from getting inside. In addtion, the SHORTER nd STRAIGHTER the dryer exhaust vent is, the better. If you have an exhaust vent with excessive bends, or excessive run length, this can contribute to poor heating of the dryer. Especially exhaust vents that run thorugh an attic or under a crawl space. They typcially develop sags, which create choke points where lint can accumulate to the point where it clogs. I do not know what your situation may be, but provide this as some helpful guidance just in case. I hope you find this information helpful. If you inspect your dyer and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

Hoover Condensing dryer malfunction


Hi Mike,

The motor probably has experienced locked rotor current and fried the windings. Of course the capacitor could have shorted. If you can find it, look at the capacitor and if the can looks like it's lid is swollen or pooched out, then go for replacing the Capacitor. If you remove the motor and smell the case and it smells burned, you motor is shot. It does not have to lock down to be bad. The windings do not rotate in an AC motor.
