Hello there and welcome to Fixya :
This is a fairly common problem with these whirpool dryers.
I will provide you with the 7 most common things to look for
which contribute to the symptom Dryer won't stop are listed below. Check or test each item and watch any available videos. If you are still unable to solve the problem you may need to do additional research and troubleshooting.
Show all parts for model GEW9878LW0 For the symptom you selected, these are the most common parts or causes, ordered by the likelihood of fixing the symptom.
othercausesandconditions.jpg Air Flow Problem The most common problem when a dryer is slow is when the vent is clogged. If the dryer is slow, check the vent from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house. If that is clogged, clear it completely and test the dryer. If the dryer is slow after the vent is cleaned, clean the internal ductwork of the dryer. This will require some disassembly.
blower-wheel-694089-00918612.jpg Blower Wheel

Item # 686172
The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft.

Item # 528055
The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

Code 5


Hi

The error is describing a tS code. It is an indication that the thermistor is shorted. The thermistor is the temperature sensing device used on this dryer. Before replacing the thermistor check for a clogged lint screen or dirty vent pipe.If these are clear and you are still getting the code the thermistor would need replaced, the resistance of the thermistor should be about 10K ohms at room temperature.

The thermistor is located on the blower housing in front of the motor.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Please do get back to us for further query.

Dryer runs for 10 seconds amd then stops. code t5 comes up


That is actually a Ts error.

Thermistor Short Sensor

The Thermistor resistance is very low.

Check for:

- Clogged lint screen.
- Restricted vent system.
- Check Thermistor resistance.

I have a code poping up when i start the drying cyle the code is E5 but when it showes the code yhe top bar of the E dose not show so im guessing its an E


I believe you are describing a tS code.

If it is tS showing it is an indication that the termistor is shorted. The thermistor is the temperature sensing device used on this dryer.

Before replacing the themistor check for a clogged lint screen or dirty vent pipe.

If these are clear and you are still getting the code the thermistor would need replaced, the resistance of the thermistor should be about 10K ohms at room temperature.

The part number for the thermistor is 35001191 and is located on the blower housing in front of the motor.

Hello i got a maytag dryer model #mde6700ayw wont run and give me a code t5 what can ii do to fix that problem


I believe that your code is actually "tS" vs t5. TS is a shorted thermistor

From the repair manual.

tS = Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed

{The Thermistor resistance is very low}.

Check for:

- Clogged lint screen.

- Restricted vent system.

- Check Thermistor resistance.

- Check for diagnostic code 1


The thermistor is item 50 this link: PN 35001191
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174648&diagram_id=28603393#d28603393


The thermistor has to be shorted to the chassis to get this code.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

HE4 propane dryer wont heat, how do I get the codes display?


Sounds like a clogged exhaust duct or vent. If not venting properly, most dryers will turn the heat off, for safety reasons.
Go for the easy fix first. Before removing your exhaust ducts from the dryer, look for any kinks that may cause blockage. Clean out the duct of any lint or water that may have accumulated. Check the vent on the outside of the house and make sure that its not clogged and opening properly.
