I went on another site where I found out that it was a thermistor a part of the heat blower. I will be ordering it for $20 off that site and my husband will fix it.

The problem is an open thermistor as what error code E1 means. It's either the thermistor is exhibits an extremely high resistance or the wire harness connecting it to the control board is broken or cut open. Click on the link below for the detailed procedure in troubleshooting this error code.

The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.

The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.

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

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.

The thermistor is available from the following: www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model # in the appropriate box to get a full parts break-down and diagrams.

To access the thermistor see the image below.

Remember to unplug the dryer from power first.

The thermistor will have a black and red/white wire on it.

You can check continuity across it with the meter and if the circuit is open then the thermistor needs to be replaced.



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

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (

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

I constantly got E1 Error code on my Kenmore Elite H3 GAS dryer


E1 error code indicates an open thermistor or open thermistor circuit. A thermistor is a component that relays the temperature in the dryer to the control board. If the thermistor has failed, Error code E1 will be displayed.
You need to call a repair person to fix it.

I keep getting the error "E1" & the dryer turns off ...what does that mean?


I've read in other forums that E1 means the thermistor has failed. As far as I understand, it monitors the temperature of the air that is leaving the dryer and entering the dryer vent. If you're not handy, a service call is in order.

Dryer will not stay running through entire cycle or it will just stop before clothers are dry and sometimes get a E1 error message. Mostly it will just stop and clothes are not dry, times that is runs...


Most customer manuels have a code listing in the back? Have you checked to see what E1 is? It sounds like its not sensing properly. the sensor works off the vent...so the most common problem is the vent or venting. Please check and advise
