Possible fault Heater unit faulty; Wiring faulty; NTC sensor incorrectly calibrated/out of position; Electronic board faulty.
Machine Status/Action Cycle paused.

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.

Hello Louie, I appreciate your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "E61" after you have replaced the element. An "E61" error code means that there could be an issue with your heater relay or main control board. You may need to seek additional assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

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.

Error code loc


Hi Amanda, thank you for your inquiry!

An error code E61 generally means that a heater relay failure has occurred. 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.

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.

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.
