Frigidaire affinity dryer error code e61. What does it mean


Error E61 points to a bad heating element relay. The heating element relay is on the main control board, and is not supposed to be replaceable. A new control board will run you over 100 dollars, but the relay is most likely 15 or less. If you or someone you know is handy with electricity and a soldering iron and a voltmeter, verifying that your heating element (or its wiring) is not dead and that the relay is indeed defective should be diagnosed first.

Your dryer will have a mini-manual or tech sheet inside it next to the control board somewhere with a wiring schematic and parts list. You can plug these part numbers straight into a search engine to price components and determine availability.

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

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.

Replaced control board on dryer still getting e61 code


The problem is not with the dryer as confirmed by the other identical dryer brought by the dealer. The problem is in the wiring of the receptacle where the dryer is being plugged in as characterized by error code E61 which means the control board is receiving a high voltage. The dryer operates both on 110VAC for the controls including the motor and 220VAC dedicated for the heating circuit. The receptacle must be configured according to the specifications of the dryer. Refer to the diagrams below and configure the receptacle according the plug that came with the dryer. Voltage across L1 and L2 is 220VAC, L1 and Neutral is 110VAC, L2 and Neutral is 110VAC.
