SOURCE: Error code E61 shows on my Frigidair Affinity washer. Do you know what E61 Means?

Hello Murray;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Hi E61 means that the control board is sensing an incorrect/abnormal voltage present at its input.

1.) Unplug the unit for 5 minutes. If the error comes back -

2.) Lets check your power cord:

a.) Unplug the machine. Is the middle connector on your power cord connected to 'N'?
b.) Tighten all the connectors. Make sure you have a good ground.
c.) Check the voltage. Between 'L2' & 'N' = 110V, 'L1' & 'N' = 110V, 'L2' & 'L3' = 240V.

3.) Lets check your control board for shorts:

a.) The following link will show you how to access. Ground yourself by rubbing your hands on bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board.
b.) Check all of the connections, push in on the wires at the connectors.
c.) Reassemble and try to start

4.) Well, if none of the above solved the problem, you have to replace the control panel.

I appreciate your post, Doug Anderson! From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "E61". "E61" stands for heater relay failure which could be a problem with wiring, heater relay, or main control board. I would recommend performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for ten minutes. This should help clear out any potential false error codes. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I am getting E61 code on my Frigidaire Affinity Dryer model number FASE7073NA, how do I clear this error code?

Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

An error code E61 on your Frigidaire dryer is associated with a failure in the heater relay. A qualified technician would pinpoint the problem by checking the wiring for both open and short circuit across heater relay(s). If the wiring isn't the issue, he/she would need to determine whether the problem rest with the main control board. It really could be a hit or miss calculation in parts so I would personally reach out to an experienced tech that will be able to identify the precise reason.

E61 Error code Frigidaire Affinity dryer?

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

If you are receiving an error code E61 on your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, first check if it is a false error code by resetting the power to your appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about ten minutes. If the error code persists, it could potentially mean that your dryer is experiencing a failure with the heater relay. This is not a typical DIY job. I would recommend reaching out to an experienced appliance tech just to ensure no troubleshooting step has been missed. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Best regards.

Hi Carrie, this is JK. I understand that you are experiencing an E61 error message on your dryer. Typically this error could mean that there may be a failure in the heather relay. I would recommend having a professional check the wiring. If no problems are found, you may want to consider replacing the Main Control Board. Hope this helps!

I have a Frigidaire Front Load Washer (FAFW3801LW) that is registering an error code and continuously beeps on and off at random times. I held the start/cancel buttons and E61 or Eb1 popped up. I assumed...

check in the manual for the error code most of washing machine if the error code is in users manual its means its only minor problem,but if the error code is not in users manual its means you need to call an service technician to not waste your money or time if you do by your self.
