There are only two possibilities why this happens. First is a faulty control board and second is a fault in the heating circuit and there's one simple way to determine which is which; that is disabling the heating element by disconnecting the safety thermostat.

Start by unplugging the dryer then remove the two screws securing the to panel to the rear of the dryer as shown and lift the panel off.

Once the top panel is removed, locate the safety thermostat on the heater housing at the rear of the drum with black and red wires. Refer to the illustration for the location of the safety thermostat.

Disconnect the wires from the safety thermostat terminals and properly insulate the connectors with an electrical tape. Hi! Have a Electrolux front load dryer Model - 222f006.jpg them together.

Once the wires are insulated, plug the dryer back in and run it in heat setting mode. Check the heating element coils for any part touching the housing if the dryer does not shut off. Otherwise, replace the electronic control board which is part number 34523200.

What do i do when my frigidaire dryer shows error code 68


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# LEQ2152ES0, is showing a 68 error code. The E68 error code means that there is a possible button that is stuck. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power is restored start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

DISPLAY SAYS "PF"


HI, there may have been a power surge that shut this unit down or, the junction box may be shorting the power sector. this will damage the main control in this case. i recommend shutting the power off by, pulling the unit plug from the wall socket or, shut the circuit breaker off. let the unit sit for 5 minutes without any power. this will reset the logic chip.

Power the unit back up after this 5 minute wait to see if the reset worked. if the PF is still present, this will confirm a main control fault. replace the control in this case.

**check the power cord junction point for worn connections.

Kenmore elite front loading wash & dryer-5 yrs old: should i buy?


all kenmore named washer will have 110 as first 3 digits of model #..the he washers are usually good washers..like all front loads they have their quirks ..if you read reviews from other consumers they indicate problems ..most of which are easily remedied by reading owners manuals..mold /mildew usually a bleach clean every few months ..vibration need real solid floor..oversuds use HE detergents only..just a matter of changing mind set from top loads with 25 gals of water each fill to a front load with 5-6 gals each fill..top load with 750-850 rpm spin speed to front load 1000-1200 rpm ..if willing to learn proper use and what to expect they can best investment..just don't let opinions of those unwilling to adapt affect your decision
