Question about Kenmore Dryers
Kenmore Front Load Dryer, w/steam error code E64, blackish mark on back inside of tub looks like it got too hot. Screen appeared plugged from the apparent paraffin on dryer sheets...I cleaned until it looks like new - and cleaned out trap beneath the dryer screen - to no avail. I am still getting an E64 error code and would like to know what that indicates.

SOURCE: My outdoor dryer vent leaves
i'm sorry, but that happens with all dryer vents. you might consider rerouting the vent to another location. while you're at it the vent hose needs to be cleaned out, they tend to clog up and decrease drying efficiancy.

SHUT OFF POWER AND GAS
1. Begin by opening the door removing the two screws on the left side of the door opening.
2. Then remove the screws that secure the door hinges to the cabinet. Lift off the door (may take some wiggling)
3. Grasp the outer top sides of the front panel and pull toward you.
4. Lower the front panel and lift off.
5. At each top corner remove the screw and latch that hold down the top.
6. You should be able to do the rest from here.

I had this same issue. My dryer would run and heat up but then stop and give me the f40. I measured all thermisters and everything was in range. The tech sheet stated that I needed to buy a new control board and I did. Same problem.
The solution was a loose connection on for p4. I took needle nose pliers and squeezed the connector to make it fit tight on the board and everything is working now.
Bottom line, expensive dryer with cheap connectors.

check you're thermostats for continuity, they are normally 3 thermostats, reset stats have a button on them please press, if not thermostat its your heating element

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.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.
The thermistor -may- check ok when cool and freak out when warm!

Hi gordsxbstn34 - Typically error code E64 indicates that the unit has detected that the heater circuit is open. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to check the heater coils and connections for open circuits. Depending on the diagnoses heater might need replacing and/or wiring
