Question about Dryers
Our dryer just started acting up. Never had a problem with it(electric) and then today it all of a sudden would run for about a minute and then shuts off. Then in the display window E68 shows up. I hit the cancel button and it runs again for a few seconds and then does the same thing. I have tried reseting the circuit breaker and didn't fix the problem. Is the E68 and error code? If it is help figuring it out. Thanks TLJ
I have a totally unrelated solution. Remove your lint filter. Now remove the waffled plastic that covers the lint filter slot. Hint, its inside the dryer, and there's two screws holding it in. Be careful, because there's two wires connected to the metal strip on the bottom edge of it. That metal strip is either the temperature or moisture sensor, I bet. Don't drop the screws into the lint filter slot. If yours is like mine, you'll find that a lot of lint has built up around the contacts for those two wires. Carefully clean all the lint, and reinstall. While you have it opened up, stick your vacuum's crevice tool down inside the lint filter slot and clean up all the lint in there as best you can. Problem solved. I think the build of of lint was shorting the two contacts, and this was screwing up the electronics.

I had the E68 issue with my dryer and after jiggling all the buttons to ensure none were stuck. I noticed that when the E68 error was occurring, in addition to the beeping, I also heard a faint crackling sound (like barely audible static when I put my ear close to the control panel) I proceeded to take the control panel apart to expose the control board. When I exposed the board, I notice a very light dusting of what I assume was lint. I used a soft brush to gently brush the entire board off. When I plugged the board back in and put the control panel back together, the dryer worked like new! Glad I took a chance and saved myself $185+ for a new board. Hope this suggestion can help others.

Close/ Slam Dryer Door Shut Harder than Usual. (The Door Sensor Might be getting a little worn).

Error 68 problem as well!-------I will try cleaning the area mentioned above.
I had two service calls during the 2 year warranty...vaious problemswith the dyer. Belt and door lock sensor problems. I had 2 service calls for the washer! HATE THIS DRYER AND MATCHING WASHER! I replaced a perfectly good HUGE w/d so I could save money/water and conserve energy. The repair visits and time I spent WAITING for them and missing work have canceled out any savings.Not to mention the trips I took to the laundromat! ALL DAY and spent over 50.00 for the washer and dryer use. Now I have a new problem! Error 68. The dryer doesn't work! The washer smells musty and I found the product to clean and rinse th e system. EXPENSIVE! My clothes are not getting clean and they are SOOOOOO wrinlked. fit more clothes in my 1994 units! Saved water that way!... I would love to have my old top load washer back. SORRY FOR THE VERBAL LASHING but this is my WARNING to anyone wo may be considering these similar units in the near future. To top it off, We purcheased a FRIGIDAIRE refrigerator and the water dispenser quit working after 2 years as well. We do with out! I can not stay home from work for that!

We have same problem, but AD is shown instead of error code. Our dryer is not getting hot either. The timed dry seems to at least keep it going, but it won't heat up. We're still under warranty so will see what happens.

So I was getting the same error repeatedly and I read all of the solutions listed below and went downstairs with all my tools in hand ready to take apart the cortol panel, but I looked first at the buttons and indeed I had a slightly stuck button. So, before you go through all this trouble, check your push buttons first to make sure you don't have a stuck button. It might be the easiest fix of your life.
