SOURCE: Electrolux dryer error code e61

There is a 'tech sheet' in the back pf the dryer. Unplug machine, Remove the access panel on the back to get to it. Reach in and it should be there. It will tell you how to do a button check. You have to enter a test mode through the buttons.
The E 61 is a stuck button.

Enter function test mode and perform key
stuck closed (active). (button) test to determine which button is at
fault. Carefully free the and perform the test
again. If button is free but the key struck code
still exists, replace electronic control.

SOURCE: Hi! Have a Electrolux front load dryer Model

There are only two possibilities why this happens. First is a faulty control board and second is a fault in the heating circuit and there's one simple way to determine which is which; that is disabling the heating element by disconnecting the safety thermostat.

Start by unplugging the dryer then remove the two screws securing the to panel to the rear of the dryer as shown and lift the panel off.

Once the top panel is removed, locate the safety thermostat on the heater housing at the rear of the drum with black and red wires. Refer to the illustration for the location of the safety thermostat.

Disconnect the wires from the safety thermostat terminals and properly insulate the connectors with an electrical tape. Do not tape them together.

Once the wires are insulated, plug the dryer back in and run it in heat setting mode. Check the heating element coils for any part touching the housing if the dryer does not shut off. Otherwise, replace the electronic control board which is part number 34523200.

    SOURCE: Electrolux EDC77550 drum dryer starts normally but stop after running couple of minutes.

    If motor runs continuously with power applied, check for short circuit across motor relay (RL2), or L1 applied to motor relay output (J3-1) with cycle stopped. If motor does not start when Start key is pressed, check for open circuit between L1 and motor relay connection (J3-2). If no wiring problems found, replace Main Control Board.

    My Electrolux EDV 605clothes dryer is turning but not heating, heating element is ok possible faulty thermistor, dryer heats up when thermistor is unplugged but has an error code of 5 beeps

    I think you're absolutely right exhaust sensor is faulty.

    The buzzer will give 5 beeps, all program LEDs will flash for 5 seconds and the dryer will continue with the cycle. The warning beeps and flashing LEDs will occur every 30 seconds.
    On Timer Drying programs it will run for the time remaining and in Sensor Drying programs it will run for 90 minutes. As the exhaust air temperature can not be sensed the element will be cycled on and off at a preset amount. The cycling time of the element will vary depending on the amount of time remaining.

    NOTE: When this fault exists the dryer can still be used but regardless of the Sensor Drying program selected the dryer will use the 90 minute Timer Drying program, Timer Drying programs will use the selected program, and with both types of programs the element will cycle as above. The buzzer will also still be sounding.

    If an exhaust sensor fault is detected the buzzer will beep and the Reminder Clean the Filter LED will flash. The LED flashes at different rates depending what is wrong with the sensor -

    Fast (4 per second) = open circuit senor, broken wiring or multi pin plug not correctly fitted to the control board.
    Slow (2 per second) = Short circuit in sensor or wiring.

    The sensor resistance at different temperatures is as shown below.

    Temperature (Celsius) Resistence (Ohms)
    55 2960
    50 3570
    45 4330
    40 5280
    35 6490
    30 8030
    25 10000
    20 12555
    15 15880
    10 20260
    5 26080
    0 33870

    As you can see this is NTC thermistor with Negative Temperature Coefficient , means if temperature increasing the resistance decreasing.

    Have a Electrolux dryer and the moisture bar pulled loose by bib overalls and have the new one but am not sure which wire terminal goes where. 2 wires and the dryer used to dry on one normal cycle but

    Hello lester haugstad, thank you for your post!

    I understand that the moisture bar inside of your Electrolux dryer was pulled loose and you would like to reattach it. I have researched and there is not an available part guide to show how the moisture bar is reattached. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional for proper installment of the part. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

    Matag NeptuneDryer MD5500AWW - intermittent heat - not drying

    this is joyce
    It is as you guessed your sensor. it is usually located in door but some models are in back of machine on inside, go online download document papers go to put in model# and then download your model # and it will show you where your sensor is located, it should be simple to replace. I had the same problem with my dryer.
    I am glad you said you checked the dryer lines because if these get clogged up they will cause the dryer not to dry the clothes correctley. very smart....if you need me to help let me know.

    Dryer not heating

    Answer Did you select an Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature option?
    The Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature does not add heat to the dryer. Expect loads dried with the Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature to take longer to dry. Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature can be found on the control knob or button with the other temperature selections.
    Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
    The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuses or reset the circuit breakers. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
    Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer?
    The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. Review the Installation Instructions to make sure that the power supply cord is properly installed.
