Good day, I have a Frigidaire Affinity Front load dryer, I got a e61 error code and is not drying, I referred to the manual and it said it's the heater rely on the control board. Where do I find the control board and can I order it online

Thanks!

E61--->Heater Relay Failure--->Heater relay stuck open or closed; Wiring defective.
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 Electronic Control Board and retest.

Here's the Electronic Control Board for your model:
809160802 Control Assembly


Here's the instructions, Just read where it says Control Assembly - Figure 4-17:

Good day, I finally got the new control board and replaced it, but I am still getting e61 error code after about a minute of operation. Is there anything else I can check?

Unplug the dryer, then open the dryer to get access to the heating element, then ohm test it, there is a video in the heating element part link that shows how to ohm test it.

Here's the heating element for your model you can order if needed:
Heating Element Assembly 134792700


Let us know what you find.
