What Is Code E63 on Electrolux Dryer?

Electrolux is well-known for its high-quality dryers, and it’s rare for them to give issues. However, sometimes your Electrolux Dryer will display an E63 error code. What does this mean?

Code E63 on an Electrolux dryer means that there’s a problem with the thermal fuse or cycling thermostat. If these parts are fine, it can indicate an issue with the main electronic control board. In all instances, it’s best to replace the parts. 

This article will provide an in-depth explanation of error code E63 on an Electrolux dryer and some useful fixes. Let’s get started! 

E63 Error Code: What It Means and How To Fix It

An E63 error code on your Electrolux dryer indicates a problem with one of these parts: 

  • The thermal fuse
  • The heater unit 
  • The electronic control board

I’ll discuss these issues in more detail below: 

Faulty Thermal Fuse

If you’ve been using your Electrolux dryer a lot recently, it may have overheated, causing the thermal fuse to blow. Thermal fuses and thermostats regulate the temperature in the dryer, and will short-circuit as a safety precaution. When this happens, your dryer will flash an E63 error code.

If you suspect that the thermal fuse may be causing the error code, follow these steps to check: 

  1. Turn your dryer off and unplug it. The first step is shutting your dryer off and unplugging it so you don’t get electrocuted.  
  2. Locate the thermal fuse. You can find the thermal fuse on the blower housing. If you don’t know where this is, consult your user manual. 
  3. Disconnect the wires. There are a number of wires surrounding the thermal fuse, and you’ll need to disconnect them. 
  4. Check the thermal fuse with a multimeter. Using a multimeter, check if the thermal fuse has continuity. If the multimeter reading is 0 Ohms, the thermal fuse is fine. Any other reading indicates that it’s faulty. 

How To Fix a Faulty Thermal Fuse

If you’ve established that the thermal fuse is faulty, you’ll need to replace it. If your dryer isn’t under warranty and you don’t need to use a genuine Electrolux part, I recommend the Blue Stars Dryer Fuse Replacement (available on Amazon.com). You can use it in an Electrolux dryer, and it comes with a lifetime warranty.

When you receive your new thermal fuse, here’s how to install it in your dryer: 

  1. Shut off your dryer and unplug it from the power source.  
  2. Remove the panels, wires, and screws surrounding the old fuse.
  3. Remove the faulty fuse.
  4. Install the replacement fuse in its place and connect it to the wires. 
  5. Reinsert the screws, and replace the panel. 

After following these steps, the dryer should no longer show you the E63 error code and be working fine. If you’d like a visual representation of how to replace a thermal fuse on your Electrolux dryer, here’s a useful video:

The Cycling Thermostat

Another reason you may be getting the E63 is a problem with the cycling thermostat. This is an essential dryer part because it helps regulate the temperature. If you didn’t find a problem with the thermal fuse, it’s likely that the cycling thermostat is faulty. 

It’s usually easier to replace the thermostat than try to repair it. After buying a new one online or from a spare parts store, I’ll explain how to replace it below. 

How To Fix the Cycling Thermostat

If your cycling thermostat is faulty, here’s how to replace it: 

  1. Turn off your dryer and disconnect it from the power source. 
  2. Locate the rear panel and remove the screws securing it in place
  3. Disconnect the wires from the thermostat. It can be useful to take a photo of how the wires are connected, as this will help you when installing the new one. 
  4. Install the new thermostat and connect it to the wires. 

After replacing the cycling thermostat, your dryer should function normally, and not display the E63 error code. 

If the above fixes have not worked, it might be worth resetting your dryer. Simply press the Dryness and Temperature buttons simultaneously, and hold them down for at least 5 seconds. If the E63 error code still persists, it could be an issue with the electronic control board, in which case, it’s time to call a professional

Final Thoughts 

When your Electrolux dryer displays the E63 error code, it can be annoying and frustrating. This code usually indicates an issue with the thermal fuse or cycling thermostat. In both cases, it’s worth replacing these inexpensive parts. 

If all else fails, try resetting your dryer or contact a professional, as the issue could be with the electronic control board.
