Look for the button that has a small padlock icon on it and press and hold for about 5 seconds. That should clear the lock.

New g.e. Dryer displays a fault code e61 on screen and will not power on or clear...this dryer is brand new...straight out of box with this fault code...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you should have a electrician work on your wiring, with luck no further damage has happened, E61 means you have the neutral and the L2 wire either reversed or in the wrong position.

ENTER TEST MODE SEQUENCE by doing the following . 1.Disconnect the power for 30 seconds.
2.Reconnect the power and within 30 seconds press the sequence of buttons listed below.
3.Press the "SIGNAL"button.
4.Press the "DELAY START"button.
5.Press the "SIGNAL"button.
6.Press the "DELAY START"button.

Now after you have fixed the reveresed wiring problem you will need to remove the fault code fromt he memory otherwise the machine will not work. To remove the fault code do the following ENTER TEST MODE
SEQUENCE (cont.)
You will notice "t01". To choose the test mode that you want toverify, turn the knob to the desired test mode setting.
Push the start/pause button.To cancel the test mode, press on "power".
You will be able to choose another test mode and again press on "start/pause".
The display error codes test allows the service technician to examine and clear the fault log.
DISPLAY ERROR CODES TEST
(t02)
The display error codes test allows the service technician to examine and clear the fault log.
The control shall display the most recent error in the fault logupon entry into the display error codes test. If there are no errors in the fault log, the no error code "E00"shall be displayed on the 7-segment display.

The control shall clear the displayed error from the fault log if the start key is pressed during the display error codes test. After clearing thedisplayed error from the fault log, the appliance shall display the next most recent error from the fault log.

After clearing all errors from the fault log, the control shall display the no error "E00"code on the 7-segment display.
The control shall log the last 8 error codes in the non-volatile memory stored in a circular list.

The control shall avoid logging multiple instances of the same error code. now unplug the appliance for about 30 seconds and replug and everything should be fine.

The Dryer says "Control Locked"


Try pressing an holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button on the front panel in for 3 seconds. This button is used to lock/unlock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls when the dryer is not in use. A designed safety feature. If this does not work for you, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Control lock stays on and nothing else works on the panel. No other lights, no other controls. Disconnected power overnite but nothing changed.


The sound button is the button that you wish the sound to go on when the load is finished drying. Thanks for the advice, I was worried I just bought them and already broken.
