Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Electrolux I have an electrolux dry model EIED55HIWO and I recieved an E63 code. I toke the dryer apart to check heating element, element was good so I reassemble the dryer and it was not displaying error code. I started dryer, it ran for about 2-5 minutes and stopped and displayed error code e61. What is this code and why would it switch from e63 to e61.

    Hello again Curtis - What I meant to say was that error codes E61 and E63 could potentially mean the heater relay has short circuited or there is a wiring malfunction. When a short circuit exists, error codes can potentially switch from one to the next. In any event, I would recommend having a service technician take a look at it.

Hello Curtis - Typically, error code E61 indicates a Heater Relay failure. At first the heater was grounded, and now possibly the heater relay. When the heater grounded it could have shorted the relay as well. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

I am happy to be of assistance!

This is an electronic problem and must be replaced by factory service!
If it happened from th beginning call factory service right away, it's under warranty, you do not pay for it!!!!!!!!
There is no other choice!
If the dryer was 10 years old I would recommend to trow it out and not spend a dime on it! Are you ready to buy a new machine??
If not let service fix it and get back to having clean clothes!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Good luck!

Electrolux Dryer quit and has a code E 63

Mark, the heating element is underneath the drum, on the left (as facing the front of the unit).

Per the Dryer Tech Data Sheet:
E63 Error Code indicates: [Fault] Heater to Earth Ground [Possible Fault Conditions] Heating element or wiring defective [Possible Solutions] Check heater coils and connections for short circuits to the cabinet. Replace heater and/or wiring and retest.

To open the cabinet is quite difficult, speaking as a non-professional. There may be easier methods than what I used, but I was successful. First I removed all the screws from the back (there are many). This got the top and the back panels removed. The left side (where I could see the heating element was) gave me considerable trouble until I realized I had to remove the door trim to reveal one last screw. Finally got the side off and swapped out the heater. Much much vacuuming for me. I am still trying to figure out how to clean out the bottom of the duct (underneath lint filter), but that's another post.

Also, just in case you don't have the manual and/or need to order parts, I will include a link.

For some reason, the Sears Parts Direct website lists the dryer as a Gas dryer, which it obviously isn't, as the part in question is very clearly an electric heating element. Hope this helps.

E63 code

E63 is for a open heating circuit. could be a problem with the heating element or a sensor gone bad. Check to see if your dryer is under warranty. If it is I suggest you have the manufacturer take care of the problem. If not let me know, and we'll start by checking the heating element.

Electrolux dryer has code of E63


Thanks for using FixYa. Error E63 in your Electrolux Dryer indicates that the temperature inside is too hot/overheating, to start with check the vent and try to clean it. If still it's not resolved then the issue is with the thermal fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Dryer shows E63 error code? What is it? Should I call service?

The error code E63 is a high temperature warning

If you dryer is under warranty, take advantage of it. If not it may be a failing sensor or possibly a control board.
