I doubt it. The thermister changes in resistance with temp change. The resistance is monitored by the brain. E-1 usually is an eprom error most times. Your tech sheet lists errors and what to try to fix that. It is located in a jacket inside the kick plate where you access the heating element under the drum. You could have some wax buildup on the sensor strips located below the filter inside. The strips are also monitored for resistance changes associated with dampness of clothes. No dampness means no resistance so the brains thank the clothes is dry and shuts off the program. Purty clever I must say. Try cleaning the junk off the sensor strips is what I would do, so that moisture can be monitored easier fer the brains of the outfit.
Hi E1 is a thermostat/thermal fuse failure error which means that the thermal fuse has gone bad and should be replaced. I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if bad replace it as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back with its model no for further assistance. Daniel
try two things. first, run it empty without the lint filter installed. if it gives you the same error message, install the filter, but disconnect the flexible duct connected to the back of the dryer. try it again. if it still wont work, you will have to get it serviced and cleaned out. if it works with the ducting removed from the back, your dryer duct is clogged up. check your yellow pages for dryer duct cleaning. The lint filter error message is just your machines way of saying it is not getting enough air flow. It can be caused by a clogged duct also.
First you'll want to pull off the top and try and wiggle every connection you see to the board located in back right. An E1 is a "faulty control" message a few hundred bucks for the part I recommend you use a service company they may charge 200.00 in service and labor, but you'll get at least a ninty day warrenty. And only they can switch out electrical parts ... You'll find it much less headache in the long run.
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 can understand your frustration. i have reviewed the information that i have from Bosch and they indicate that the lint filter indicator light should only come on as a reminder but should not shut off the dryer.
here is my recommendation and also a question:
the dryer is shutting off due to the fact that it's overheating. it's a safety precaution from the manufacturer and it's built in to prevent the lint collected in the lint filter, since it's highly flammable.
check the venting in the back or side, wherever it was installed.
the vent tube is often the cause for the dyer to stop functioning.
if that turns out to be okay, the dyer is equiped with a sensor on the heater. it is possible that it's opening due to the heat generated by the dryer that has nowhere to go.
An E1 Code is a thermistor fault TEST #3a Thermistor Test The machine control electronics monitors the exhaust temperature using the thermistor, and cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain the desired temperature. Begin with an empty dryer and a clean lint screen. 1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power. 2. Set the following configuration: ➔ Door – must be firmly closed ➔ Press Control On ➔ Press End Of Cycle Signal (Louder) ➔ Press Start 3. If after 60 seconds, E1 or E2 flashes in the display and the dryer shuts off, the thermistor or wire harness is either shorted or open. ➔ Unplug dryer or disconnect power ➔ Check wire connections at the machine control electronics and thermistor. To access the Thermistor you will need to open the bottom front panel 2 screws the thermistor is on the exh duct (Center) check it there let me know if you need futher help
