The error code means a key is stuck; enter the service diagnostic mode and perform the key test to determine which key is stuck. Once the key is determined, try to unstuck it; replace the electronic control board (part number 134557201) if the error code continues to appear after the button is unstuck.

Press and hold simultaneously the Select and Cancel buttons for six seconds to reset the control then immediately after the buzzer sounds, turn the cycle selector knob 5 clicks counterclockwise to position the cycle indicator light second (Touch Up) from the bottom.

Press and hold the Options and Cancel button simultaneously for two seconds to enter the service diagnostic mode. The buzzer will sound three times and all of the LEDs will flash indicating the service diagnostic mode has been entered successfully.

Rotate the cycle selector knob 4 clicks to the Heavy Duty cycle; the motor runs with the heater off. The buttons can now be tested. Press each button and all corresponding LEDs should flash; otherwise the button is stuck or a faulty. Unstuck the key and perform the key test again; replace the control board if the problem is not resolved.

Access to the control board requires the removal of the top panel and the console. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the two screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the dryer then slide the panel rearward and lift it off the dryer.

Remove the four screws, two on each side, securing the console to the front panel then flip the console forward. Disconnect the wires from the control board and lift the console off.

Remove the five screws mounting the control board to the console and lift the control off. Remove the control board's rear cover by releasing the two locking tabs the flip the cover off the control board. Try to unstuck the faulty key and reassemble the dryer in reverse of the disassembly steps

What does code E68 mean?


Hello Erik;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The code E68 appears when one of the buttons on the keypad is stuck in the down position. This is a common error with several different Frigidaire dryer models and tends to occur when the dryer is five or more years old. You may be able to un-stick the offending key manually. If not, you will need to replace the entire keypad.

Why can't I get my new control board for my Frigidaire affinity dryer to work?


Hey tim bryant, thanks for your post!
I understand that you have installed a new board inside of your Frigidaire dryer, AEQ6000ES2, and on the new board the lights blink. I would recommend a reset on your appliance which can be done by disconnecting the power to it for roughly ten minutes. If that step does not correct the issue I would seek professional assistance for the repair of your dryer. I hope that is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire affinity LEQ6000ES2 error code e68...dryer will not start


Good Afternoon David,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# LEQ6000ES2, is showing you an error code of E68 and will not start. I also see that you have changed the thermal limiter. Looking at what the E68 error code means, a key or button stuck, there could be something else causing the code to come up. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance, determine what is causing the E68, and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

May be a bad safety thermostat. Or, the thermostat may be working as it is supposed to, but you have excess heat in the dryer drum. Check for lint buildup.

Frigidaire affinity dryer problem


the thermistor in air outlet duct is very common for these. with front panel off find plastic duct from blower at bottom. pull out thermistor and look at inner side. it has triangular shape and if you can see shiny redish color at tip instead of all black then its worn. this causes numerous heat and control issues.

If your dryer is the same or similar to mine (Model AEQ6000ES2) then error E68 is a stuck key on the keypad. This may be mechanically stuck or the membrane contacts. The simple solution is to replace the keypad.
