Question about Kenmore Dryers

Open Question

Kenmore Front Load Dryer w/steam error code E64 I believe this unit is made by LG.

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.

SOURCE: lint trapped inside dryer housing

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore Oasis dryer F40 error code

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.

SOURCE: How do I take the front panel off my kenmore elite

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!

E64 error code electrolux dryer


You have not specified Tumble dryer model so I can not say for certain that my answer is correct. Fault codes can sometimes vary depending on the platforms appliances because today some manufacturers release new models twice a year and thay have the absolutlly right to make changes and improve the efficiency of new appliances (also change fault codes).

E64 - Heater thermostat

  • Thermostat faulty (replace heater unit)
  • Heater unit faulty
  • Wiring faulty
  • Electronic board faulty.

Dryer says e64 and turns off what does that mean


Chris Polk had an answer as follows in August:"Typically error code E64 is an indication that the heater circuit is in the open position. This is not a simple DIY job; I would highly recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately. The certified technician will need to check the heater coils and connections for open circuits. Depending on the diagnosis the heater or wiring may need replacing." Good luck.

Kenmore front load model 40272900 e codes (control Error)


If the washer's full model number is 79640272900, then the unit was made by LG. Looking up LG front-load washing machine error codes will give the available codes. Here is one listing: http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/blog/2010/02/washing-machine-fault-codes/#LG . Some of these codes are also available in the manual in the Trouble-shooting section. Manage My Life has the manual as a PDF here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17952/KENMORE-Residential-Washers-L0910072?brand_name_search=79640272900 .

I hope this helps.

My frigidaire dryer is showing an e64 error code dryer works sometimes ?


The unit is displaying this code because the heater's circuit is open. A professional is needed to check the heater coils and connections for any open circuits. Replace the heater and/or wiring connected and then retest.
