Question about GE DBVH512EFWW Dryer
I have the same problem, and it might be due to the fact that your dryer operates off a voltage that your house is not providing. Your dryer might need 220 volts and is only receiving 110 volts. That may be why it powers up but nothing works but the light when you open the dryer door. It needs more power to run the rest. Look into changing the voltage on your receptacle in your house to 220 volts to properly operate your dryer. Good luck!

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of E61. I understand that you have replaced the circuit board and you are still receiving the error code. An E61 means that your heater relay as had a failure which could be a potential problem with your heater relay or a wiring harness. You may need to seek professional assistance with proper troubleshooting this will help you to avoid any further unnecessary part purchases. If you need help locating a local technician you can visit your manufacturer's website for a list of available technicians. -Matt

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.
