My Electrolux Dryer has Error Code E60. What's the Issue?
If your Electrolux dryer stops working and you notice the E60 error code appears on the display, this indicates a heating problem. Since your dryer depends on warm air to dry your laundry, it's easy to see why this is such a troublesome error. There are a few possible parts or faults that could be causing this error to occur. Here are some tips and factors to consider.
Before you do anything, try resetting your dryer. Unplug it for a couple of minutes before plugging it back in again. This might clear the code if there is no other underlying problem. Another option is to perform a factory reset. In order to do this, you will need to check the user manual for precise instructions relating to your model. If this does not work, then you can consider the points below.
Clean The Filters
If you do not clean your dryer filters and the door seal regularly, dirt and lint will build up over time. This can result in the E60 error. Not cleaning your dryer filters can even present a fire risk. The dry lint in these filters can start a fire if they get too hot. So, make sure that you clean the lint trap and all filters frequently.
When you install your dryer, it is very important that there is sufficient airflow around the appliance. If your dryer is built into a cabinet and there's not much ventilation, this can prove dangerous. Not only can you cause damage to the dryer, but this could also result in a fire. You should move your dryer right away and in a room with sufficient ventilation. If the room is very small, this can result in a significant increase in temperature and humidity in the room. If you are not able to move your dryer to another room, you should at least open a window and keep the door to that room open when using your dryer. This will improve airflow and you don't have to worry about the room and your dryer overheating.
If none of these DIY solutions work, you should contact a professional appliance repair technician right away. There could be a fault with the heating element, NTC sensor, PCB or there could be a wiring issue. These types of problems should be diagnosed and repaired by a professional. Attempting repairs yourself can result in further damage or even an unsafe appliance.
