SOURCE: 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.

I have a GE dryer and it's reading the code E61 what does that mean


For GE dryers, the E61 code indicates a problem with the wiring or the control board. The dryer is sensing the wrong voltage between the hot and neutral lines of the incoming wiring. First check your wiring/fuses/circuit breakers. If your wiring is OK, then the control board is probably faulty.

If you post a comment with the model, I may be able to point you to the appropriate parts. I hope this helps.

I have a Frigidaire Affinity electric dryer model number FASE7021NW0. It suddenly began giving error code E61. I called frigidaire. they said it was likely a shorted wire and put me in contact with an


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

I am getting E61 code on my Frigidaire Affinity Dryer model number FASE7073NA, how do I clear this error code?


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

An error code E61 on your Frigidaire dryer is associated with a failure in the heater relay. 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.
