SOURCE: 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.

Why is 6kg Electrolux Dryer EDV605 not heating


No heat can be several things, first check the voltage to the dryer.
You need 240 volts ac for it to heat. Just because it tumbles isn't proof of the correct line voltage. The heating element could be open, the high temperature fuse could be open. door switch could be bad, heat relay on main board could be bad. If you have a meter there is a schematic or wiring diagram in the dryer somewhere. Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before taking it apart. Use a meter to check heating circuits. If you do not know how to check continuity, you will need an appliance repairman.

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.

No heat in dryer


Make sure all the wires were replaced correctly and check the circuit breaker two control an electric dryer one for go one for heat. if all the wires were not replaced correctly you may have tripped one or it may have caused the prolem without tripping one . I'd start with the wires.
