Not sure but you can go to Google and type in "E2 whirlpool duet dryer" and it should tell you what the code means

    Dryer not working. failure code E2

    The electronic control board detected that the thermistor located on the blower housing is shorted (zero resistance). Either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and the electronic control board has a short circuit or the thermistor is indeed shorted.

    E2 is flashing on my whirlpool duet dryer whats this mean

    Code E1

    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.

    Take the top off the dryer and inside you'll find the "tech sheet." It has instructions for removing the front panel and locating the thermistor.

    E-2 error code on whirlpool duet dryer

    “E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.

    The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
    and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
    and off to maintain the desired temperature.
    1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
    supply connected.
    2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
    the lint screen is clean.
    3. Close the dryer door.
    4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
    or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
    and Start.
    5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
    after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
    the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
    shorted or open. Check the wire connections
    at the thermistor or the machine
    control electronics board. If wiring checks
    okay, replace the thermistor.
    6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
    the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
    7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
    tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
    heat using the More Time or Less Time
