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.

The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.

The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.

The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.

The thermistor is available from the following: www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model # in the appropriate box to get a full parts break-down and diagrams.

To access the thermistor see the image below.

Remember to unplug the dryer from power first.

The thermistor will have a black and red/white wire on it.

You can check continuity across it with the meter and if the circuit is open then the thermistor needs to be replaced.



When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

The thermistor -may- check ok when cool and freak out when warm!

SOURCE: Brand new Lg dryer 2501, error code ''nP''

I had the same issue with two new dryers. The rep on the phone said nP can also indicate a power issue. It turned out one of the wires in the outlet had broken off. Rewiring the outlet solved the problem.

My dryer turns off within few minutes of turning on. i get error code 55. what does that mean?


google: frigidaire dryer "put model here" error code 55. I couldn't find anything. So there's more to the error code than 55, or it is model perhaps year dependant.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.


Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

I get a AF code and the blower is not turning. Dryer is turning and heating.


Sounds like you need a new blower wheel. You would need to remove the drum and front panel.I think it is a reverse thread on blower wheel.

My dryer starts, runs a few minutes, doesn't heat up and shuts itself off


check your sensors on the heater unit, there are two or more, simply us a meter and make sure power is on both sides of the sensor, if not then that specific sensor is bad and you should replace it, pull the sensor and tie the two wire together to see if it will heat, if it does replace the sensor they are cheap and will keep you from burning down the house

DOESNT HEAT AND I SMELL GAS


Hello - From what you are describing, if the dryer only heats up sometimes but provides a gas odor, it could possibly be a defective gas supply or igniter. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the fuse for the dryer. Turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If it proves to be ineffective and if the issue continues I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. Keep in mind since it is such a complex unit, the technician will likely verify that it doesn't have a defective sensor, control board or high limit thermostat.

Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that


I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

It shows 8.8. and does not start


After having this problem I believe I found a solution. I think the problem is related to tha ambient temperture of the room where the dryer is located. If it's too cold, you get the 8.8 error. When I first had the error it was at 7:00 in the morning trying to dry some clothes that were in the washing machine overnight. I couldn't get the dryer to work and had to go out for a few hours. When I got back around 11:00, the dryer worked fine. The only difference I could think of was that it was warmer than before. So a few weeks later I rememberd this and tried to test my theory. I waited for a very cold morning and tried the dryer and got the 8.8 error. Then I took a small patio table heater and turned it on in front of the dryer for about 20 minutes. The dryer fired up right away. I've used the same routine whenever I get the 8.8 error and it's always solved the problem for me. Hope this helps

Dryer starts runs for 4min flashes e1 turns off


The E-1 error code is a thermistor error, some problem with the variable resistance.....this can be caused by over use of fabric softener sheets, which can cause lint to become tacky and coat the thermistor, or it just simply failed. Try replacing the thermistor.
