We are receiving two error codes e63 and e61. The dryer will only stay on a few minutes and then shut off with these error codes. We have done a continuity test on the heating element and everything is okay with the continuity. Could it be the circuit board or something else? Could it still be the heating element?
The E61 error code indicates a heater relay failure. You will want to check the following. Check for short circuit across heater relay(s) (RL5, RL6, RL7) or L1 applied to heater relay output(s) (J5-2, J7-1, J7-3) with cycle stopped. Check for open circuit between L1 and heater
relay connection(s) (J5-1, J5-3, J7-2). If no wiring problems are found, replace the Main Control Board.
The E63 error code indicate that the heater to ground issue. Check heater coils and connections for short circuits to the
cabinet. Replace heater and/or wiring and retest.
