Electrolux Dryer Error Codes

Electrolux Dryer Error Code E71 or E72

If your Electrolux dryer is displaying Error Code E71 or E72, it indicates a potential issue with the outlet thermistor, which is essentially a temperature sensor.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you comprehend and address this error on your own:

1. Unplug the Dryer:

As a safety precaution, start by unplugging your dryer from the power source.

2. Check Wire Harness Connections:

Inspect the outlet thermistor’s wire harness connections. Look for any loose or disconnected wires. If you find any, reconnect them securely.

3. Assess Wire Harness Condition:

Examine the wire harness for any signs of damage. If you notice frayed or compromised wires, it’s advisable to replace the entire wire harness.

4. Measure Resistance with a Multimeter:

Using a multimeter, check the resistance of the outlet thermistor. At room temperature (around 70 degrees Fahrenheit), you should measure approximately 5,000 ohms of resistance.

5. Replace Outlet Thermistor if Needed:

If the resistance reading deviates significantly from 5,000 ohms, it suggests a malfunction in the outlet thermistor. In this case, consider replacing the outlet thermistor to resolve the error.

By following these steps, you can troubleshoot and potentially fix the E71 or E72 error on your Electrolux dryer. Remember to prioritize safety and, if needed, consult your dryer’s user manual for model-specific instructions.

This DIY approach allows you to grasp the nature of the error and undertake preliminary troubleshooting without the immediate need for professional repair services. If the issue persists after these steps, or if you’re unsure about any aspect of the process, it’s recommended to seek assistance from a qualified technician or the manufacturer.
