Re: E-1 light

I have a Kenmore He electric dryer and the error E1 started after about 10 minutes and dryer shut off, I took some online advice and took the dryer lint trap apart and vaccummeed out very thorough and put dryer back together and it works like new. Sears wanted $200.00 to repair, It's a easy do it yourself fix and don't trust Sears.

Frigidaire affinity LEQ6000ES2 error code e68...dryer will not start

Good Afternoon David,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# LEQ6000ES2, is showing you an error code of E68 and will not start. I also see that you have changed the thermal limiter. Looking at what the E68 error code means, a key or button stuck, there could be something else causing the code to come up. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance, determine what is causing the E68, and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Haier HMS 800TVE - it shows error 1, I tried with door closed properly but not success.

Did you check the information available to see what the error code #1 means. That info comes on a paper insert hidden somewhere in your machine or on the back.
It would be helpful if you stated what problems you are experiencing with this machine...not starting, starts and stops...

Frigidaire Affinity Front Loading Electric Dryer. In about 5 minutes of starting the dryer, an error "Ad" shows in the window above the start button. Then the dryer stops and the lights under the "Ad"

I believe that code means auto dry. Lets make sure the lint and dust is clear from the machine. Check all of your wiring out well since is generally a cause. You may ave to replace the thermistor. Have you gotten any other code along with this.

Shortly after starting a load in the dryer, the dryer stops, beeps and the lighted code says E1. The grid on back wall of dryer is very hot. I am unable to find my instruction booklet. This keeps...


The E1 error code means that the electronic thermostat is the problem. With what your describing as far as it being very hot and the E1 code,i would suspect one of 2 things;

1) the thermister is bad and needs to be replaced

2) thier is a blocked/restricted vent and or excessive lint built up in the blower housing causing the heat to be retained in the dryer instead of being vented out and across the thermister where its getting a false reading and throwing up the E1 error code

My bravo steam dryer is showing an F1 code, and I can't get it to start

this is a control board issue, you may be able to clear the fault using these steps:

1) Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

2) Plug the dryer back in or turn the breaker back on.

3) Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.

4) Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

If it will not clear then you will need to replace the control board, Good Luck Tim
