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

A code E1 flashes the dryer shuts off and the clothes are still wet


The fault code E1 means the electronic control detected the thermistor is open. It's either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and electronic control is broken or the connection is loose or the thermistor is indeed open. Measure the resistance of the thermistor then refer to the temperature and resistance table for the normal thermistor resistance values.

Troubleshooting Error Code E1 on Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet Dryers

I have a Whirlpool GEX9868JQ0 Electric dryer. Rvery time I use it ,it will stop within a few minutes and display E1. It takes me a long time to dry clothes, having to re start the dryer over and over. ...


The electronic control detected that the thermistor is open as indicated by the fault code E1. It's either the connection between the thermistor and the electronic control is broken or the thermistor is indeed open. Troubleshooting and repair is an easy task can be one in a couple of minutes. Make sure to unplug the dryer before attempting any repair work.

Remove the dryer's back panel to access and check the thermistor. Remove the screws securing the back panel then pull the panel off the cabinet and locate the thermistor on the blower housing.

Check to make sure the wires are snugly connected and there are no signs of bad contacts or corrosion. Disconnect the wires if there's no issue found with them and the connections then tape the wires together or jump a wire between them.

Put a few load of wet or damp clothing, plug the dryer in then start it. Error E2 should appear on the display to indicate that the thermistor has been shorted. It signifies that the electronic control and the wire harness are all good and the thermistor is indeed open. Replace the thermistor with part number 8577274.

Simply unscrew it from the blower housing, install the new one, and transfer the wires from the old to the new one. It actually doesn't matter to which terminal the wires should go since the thermistor is not polarized.

Feel free to update us about the development of the troubleshooting and repair should you have further questions.

Note: This advice is outlined for the purpose of troubleshooting without the use of a volt-ohmmeter. Simply check the resistance of the thermistor if a volt-ohmmeter is available. Refer to the table below for the correct resistance reading.

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.

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.


First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout

Dryer shuts off prematurely


The E1 code is a replace control panel code and a good way to check a sensor is to open the door with a empty machine and at the top of the opening there is a switch. Press it and start the dryer, watch the indicator for the sensor then get a wet finger and hold it across the two silver bars in the dryer, if it senses then maybe it is a mixed load or how is the machine leveled? I will lower the machine toward the sensor for better contact because after 3-5 passes the machine will assume the clothes are dry. If the sensor doesnt read then there is a question with the two mov varistors attached to a pig tail before the sensor. Here is a link to see what they look like.

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.
