GE Gas Dryer E61 Error Code, Model# DCVH515GF1WW
« on: July 04, 2012, 11:58:14 AM »
We recently had a very severe storm on the east coast and my GE gas dryer, model# DCVH515GF1WW, now displays an E61 error code. According to the tech guide, the code indicates a polarity issue at the main control board. Prior to the E61, the dryer was cutting off before the cycle was done and experiencing intermittent heating issues.

The tech manual does not indicate if there is a way to erase all error codes and start fresh by putting the dryer into a diagnostic test. Is there a way to clear all error codes and still see if the E61 is coming up?


Thanks,

Steve

Hi,

How many dryers do you have? ;)

How did you turn out with this dryer?

Did you try unplugging it for a few minutes to clear the code?

Funny!

They haven't decided if they want to repair the Duet, the GE is mine. I usually come here if I can't figure out any appliance I am working on. Is that allowed or is there a professional section to join/become a member?

Why are you working on the 4th?!!!!!!

Steve

Of coarse it's allowed, it's what this site is about. :)


We do have a private "Let's Talk Service" board for technicians, but repair questions still need to be asked in one of the regular repair board.

E61 is code for improper voltage was sensed between neutral and hot.
