What is an error code e-68 on a galaxy series dryer mean

E68 error code is a stuck button error code. You can try to wiggle each button on the control panel to make sure they are all functioning freely. If so, then unplug the dryer and leave it unplugged a couple minutes then plug the dryer back in to clear the electronic panel's error code. If the panel still shoes E68, then you'll need to replace the panel. Part#134557201

Hope this helps!!

Start/pause button not working, is it the control panel or the control electronics board?

First unplug the Dryer and allow about 5 mins to pass, this will allow the board time to reset, plug Dryer back in, if problem is still present, its possible that the touch pad is defective on the dryer, if other functions work when touched, it is the touch pad, and not the Board

Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer, Model # 110.8586400, Control Panel Lights inoperative, But Drum Light works fine. I am going to try this procedure, Will let you know if it works. Jay/ Jacksonville Florida...

I followed that procedure, Taking the Electronic Control Unit out of the dryer, Blow Drying the printed circuit Board (PCB) Board out and reseating P3 and P4, Worked fine.. No moisture was found in the Drum area. I forgot to tag the TECH SHEET FOR this particular dryer . But punch in Tech sheet , Part # 8546206 into google, this gives Schematic and valuable Troubleshooting steps, The only thing i could not find was the pin to pin test on chekcing the individual switches on the main functions, Suppose to be 14 pins I only found 13. But in all drying the PCB board and reseating the plugs worked for me. Again the symptons were no Light indication on ANY button depressed but the drum light was on. Great Site, Not a first time user
