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!

I had the same issue with two new dryers. The rep on the phone said nP can also indicate a power issue. It turned out one of the wires in the outlet had broken off. Rewiring the outlet solved the problem.

Hello - From what you are describing, if the dryer only heats up sometimes but provides a gas odor, it could possibly be a defective gas supply or igniter. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the fuse for the dryer. Turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If it proves to be ineffective and if the issue continues I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. Keep in mind since it is such a complex unit, the technician will likely verify that it doesn't have a defective sensor, control board or high limit thermostat.
