Thanks for using FixYa. Error E61 means that the control board is sensing an incorrect/abnormal voltage present at its input. It usually happens when L2 and N are incorrectly wired, in other words AC Input is too high. Try to leave the machine unplugged for 5 minutes, if still the issue is not resolved then you’ll have to disassemble the machine and check the main power board. If you have extended warranty on electronic controls then you can get it checked by GE, this is the repair manual that might help you for a DIY job. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

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.

(note: if you have an electric dryer using 220V, you may want an electrician to check the wiring.)

Error code e61

  • GE dryers use three-character codes that display on LCD screens. Every code starts with "E" and is followed by a two-digit number.
Power Failure
  • When your home loses power, the "E01" error flashes on the screen. Reset the dryer memory by unplugging the device, waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in. The error code will disappear.
Thermistor Errors
  • Errors "E02," "E03," "E04" and "E05" are thermistor errors. The thermistor, when operating properly, reads the temperature of the dryer. Errors E02 through E05 indicate the thermistor must be replaced.
  • When there is an error with the door switch and sensor, the "E60" error code will appear. An unbalanced door will produce the E60 code. Try to close the door gently and listen for the click. If the error remains, the door switch may need to be replaced.
Control Board Errors The control board sends signals from the controls to the dryer. When this fails, errors "E61," "E80" and "E81" appear. Contact GE service or install a new control board for the dryer

What does Frigidaire affinity dryer code E61 mean

E61 is a line voltage problem, most of the time it means you have the neutral and the L2 wire either reversed or in the wrong position. Verify that the voltage is correct at the plug then at the machine and that you have 240 volts at the terminal block on the back of your dryer.
