Try unpluging your dry for about 5 minutes. Sometimes it just needs to reset itself.

Frigidaire Gallery model GLEQ2170KSO dryer turns off within a minute.


Hello allisonarena - Try reprogramming the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or defective door switch. I would recommend connecting with an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further and to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Lights


Hi Brian - I understand that your dryer lights are turning on when not being in use. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn on the dryer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the lights continue to flash. If the issue persists, then it could possibly be a communication error with the main control board, or a potential wiring failure or faulty door lock assembly. I would recommend contacting a qualified service technician to further assist you in diagnosing this issue.

Hello Kenneth Joynt - Often when a dryer will not stop running, it is because the unit may have a potential wiring failure, faulty timer, or a communication error with the main control board.

If issue persists, I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Runs for 5 minutes then lights flash


Hello guysmith2146 - Try reprogramming the dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit and select a normal cycle. Have you recently cleaned the lint screen/filter? Otherwise the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or defective door switch. I strongly recommend contacting a local professional to proceed further, should all troubleshooting measures fail. You can often locate qualified servicers by visiting the manufacturer directly.

Ok
E2 means the control board has sensed problem or shorted thermister. Located on blower housing.
Replacing thermister should solve the problem. This picture should help.DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING

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.

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
pushbuttons.
