ERROR CODE E1 MODLE #GGW9200LW O

I have a whirlpool GGW9200 gas dryer. It will heat up during the cycle but it stops before it's finished showing E1 as an error code. It doesn't do this all the time, but it has to be somethingwrong to cause it to continue doing this . Any help????

    I have the same problem, can you tell me where the thermistor is and how to replace it? Is it a part I can find online, or do I need to contact Whirlpool? Thanks!

E1 error code is for the thermistor, try cleaning off the bottom of the thermistor, (sometimes tacky lint will coat them), if that doesn't help, just replace the thermistor.

Ran out of gas during cycle, filled up tanks now won't heat. Is there a safety switch or something?


Are you sure gas is on for the dryer?
It's possible they have an error code? Can try to unplug overnight, it may reset its brain.

Shortly after starting a load in the dryer, the dryer stops, beeps and the lighted code says E1. The grid on back wall of dryer is very hot. I am unable to find my instruction booklet. This keeps...


Hello,

The E1 error code means that the electronic thermostat is the problem. With what your describing as far as it being very hot and the E1 code,i would suspect one of 2 things;

1) the thermister is bad and needs to be replaced

2) thier is a blocked/restricted vent and or excessive lint built up in the blower housing causing the heat to be retained in the dryer instead of being vented out and across the thermister where its getting a false reading and throwing up the E1 error code

Stops frequently during cycle...get an "E1" error code


HI, This error code concerns a faulty Thermistor. The actual circuit is open. Check the wiring to this device. if it is ok and, connected properly, replace the Thermistor. it has failed in this case.

E1 comes on during mid cycle and stops the dryer from drying


replace the compressor "compressor relay and the compressor overload" that are on the side of the compressor.
location: should be in the back on the bottom behind the panel.
if you have a circuit board they may need to be replaced as well.

Dryer stops soon afetr cycle starts, E1 appears


ensure lint trap is clean and venting is not restricted or blocked.

E1 or E2 Thermistor Failure The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the error code E2 flashes in the display.

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

Dryer turns off and shoes e1 code


E1- Thermistor open.
It monitors the exhaust temperature, and cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain the desired temperature.
It could be the sensor, or electronics.

Dryer starts runs for 4min flashes e1 turns off


The E-1 error code is a thermistor error, some problem with the variable resistance.....this can be caused by over use of fabric softener sheets, which can cause lint to become tacky and coat the thermistor, or it just simply failed. Try replacing the thermistor.

Strange issue with my gas dryer and the control panel I am having a strange issue with my dryer. I have a Whirlpool gas dryer, Model: GGW9250PW0; and am having issues with the Electronic Control (mfg part 8558753). Yesterday, I went to go use the dryer and I press the "Control On" button like normal, but nothing happened. I did not get any lights or anything, yet when I open the door, the inside light comes on. I have a similar model washer plugged into the same electric outlet and everything there works fine. After researching the issue out a bit, I took off the toe panel and took off the duct-lint (mfg part W10128606) so that I could reach the wires connected to the dryer thermister and dryer thermal fuse better. I then took the wires off both of those as well as disconnected the sensor wiring harness (mfg part 3406653) and used a vacuum to clean out any lint as well as compressed air to clean off those connectors. I re-hooked all the wires back up and plugged the dryer in. I pressed the "Control On" button and all the proper lights lit up. I then pressed the "Cancel" button to turn it off, unplugged the dryer, and put the duct-lint back on. I plugged the dryer back in and tried the "Control On" and "Cancel" again, and it still worked. I then put the toe panel back on, pushed "Control On", then turned on the dryer using the "Hold to Start" button and everything worked like it used to. Here is the strange issue I am having. I ran a load in the washer and when done, I put in the dryer and tried the "Control On" button. Everything came up, but when I pressed the "Hold to Start", nothing happened. I then tried to press the "Cancel" button, and nothing happened. I could turn the knob and the different lights lit up, but none of the buttons seemed to be working. After holding the "Cancel" button for a few seconds it turned off the panel lights. I then pushed the "Control On" button again and had to press it a few times before the panel lights came on. After a little bit of playing with the buttons and knob, I was able to start the dryer. I stopped the dryer (didn&#39;t want to run it the whole time in case something is wrong) and tried to start it again. I can get the panel lights to come on, but it seems like the buttons are sticking and not fully working like they should. I don&#39;t want to have to buy an expensive part unless I absolutely need to and wanted to see if anyone can think of anything else that might be going on or that I could try before paying almost $200 for a new Electronic Control, especially if I will still have the same problem after replacing this part like some other people have reported. Thanks!
