What do I do when error code reads E 15 . Dryer runs for a few seconds than shuts down. I've tested micro switch and i'ts fine.


Post some pictures of your pilot assembly. I think this might be one of them spark sensor deals where the pilot lights and then detects flame then relays that back to the control for igniton verification. OR just try and clean up the electrode with steel wool and see if the flames stays lit is what I would try.

Hi I have an Electrolux dryer which has started showing the error message e60, when i hold the start button and the one next to ity I get error e62 showing can you help?


the "E60" error code will appear when there is an error with the door switch and sensor, 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.

the "E62" error code will appear when the lint filter and tubing need to be cleaned or replaced. The dryer will start and run for 15 seconds before shutting off. It will restart when prompted and run for another 15-20 seconds before shutting off. These steps must be repeated until the dryer continues to run the full cycle. Tim

Lgdle2532w dryer keep turning off run for about 15 second than stop running. thies a burning smell to.


Obviously the motor stays in the "start" mode. That is most likely due to a stuck starting switch, which is part of the motor.

Disconnect power to the dryer and remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and pull the panel off.

Inspect the wires connected to the timer and ensure a snug fit connection. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat it several times to ward off dirt within the connectors.

Reconnect power to the dryer and start it; replace the timer (part number 3398195 ) if the dryer still won't stay running. Unplug the dryer and pull the timer knob off the console. Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket and remove it. Secure the new timer in place then disconnect the wires from the old timer one at a time and connect it to the corresponding terminal on the new timer.

Push the timer back into position on the console and secure the console rear panel in place.

Dryer won't stay running. It will start, run 10-15 seconds, then shut off. I can restart it immediately but get the same results.


i would check the door switch. it may be worn just enough that the vibration of the dryer opens the circuit for just a moment. then check for other loose connections. the fact that you can restart immediately usually indicates a momentary break in the circuit. a temperature switch usually takes a short time to reset. while it's still running, try rattling various switches or smack the door to see if it shuts off. (just a couple of simple ideas to start with).
good luck....jay
