    Dryer keeps shutting off, flashes "E1". Sometimes I'll hit start as it flashes and it restarts. Sometimes finishes cycle. Sometimes not. I notice it shuts off more as the load is wet/heavier. Any suggestions??

I have model # GEW9250PW duet front loader dryer and keep getting a code E1


This is a failed thermistior error code.

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. See

Accessing & Removing the Electronic

Assemblies, page 7, and figure 8 for

thermistor location.

? If wire connections are good, remove the

two wires from the thermistor and replace
the thermistor.
the part number is 8577274 you can remove the lower panel in the front to change the part.

A code E1 flashes the dryer shuts off and the clothes are still wet


The fault code E1 means the electronic control detected the thermistor is open. It's either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and electronic control is broken or the connection is loose or the thermistor is indeed open. Measure the resistance of the thermistor then refer to the temperature and resistance table for the normal thermistor resistance values.

Troubleshooting Error Code E1 on Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet Dryers

The dryer keep saying E1


Hi, Error E1 indicates a 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.
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.

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.

Duet error code e1


Whirlpool Duet E1 Error

E1 is an open thermistor. The thermistor lives on top of the blower housing. Get to it by removing the bottom quarter panel.
The quarter panel is right there in front, down at the bottom, below the door. Look closely and you'll see two screws. Remove them and the panel comes right off.

Whirlpool duet dryer runs and heats well for 4-5 minutes then shuts off. it has a light that flashes E1. what is the problem??


E1 THERMISTOR OPEN "E1" flashes if the thermistor is open.

Check your wire connections on your thermistor and your control board. If they (connections) are good you should replace your thermistor. If you would like more detailed instructions in performing the "THERMISTOR TEST" post back here and I will find you a manual or find a way to scan you mine. Or, you can merely remove the top of your dryer and inside you will find the TECH SHEET giving you detailed instructions on this test and many more.

Cheers
