Hi,

An E1 error message usually indicates that the thermistor is defective and needs to be replaced. Without that part working properly, the electronic control could do unexpected things.

Thanks.

Hi Darrell, The link below is about how to trouble shoot and fix your dryer.....I hope this helps.....CHEERS..
http://removeandreplace.com/2013/09/21/fix-clothes-dryer-heating-drying-clothing/
The most common causes for an electric or gas dryer to stop drying or heating is:
1. The dryer lint screen (lint trap) has not been cleaned (poor or restricted airflow).
2. A clogged or kinked (bent) dryer air vent hose (inadequate or no airflow).
3. Drum has stopped turning, broken drum drive belt.
4. Overheated or bad motor (possible thermal overload).
5. Thermal fuse or thermostat (could be caused from dryer air vent hose lint buildup)
6. Heating element burnt out.
7. Loose electrical plug or power socket.
8. Other mechanical issue, fault or malfunction.

My Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes.


are u saying it shuts down or just stops heating? if it shuts down u may have bad motor windings and or brushes and motor is burning out if its stops heating that is usually due to bad moister sensor, cycling thermostat ( which would not usually shut appliance off though), short in heating element, defective hi limit thermostat etc and of course u already said u cleaned lint and ducts? including the blower? if its blocked with lint u have a shut off issue

Electric dryer runs shuts off then starts again on its own


This could be a bunch of different things. #1 detach dryer vent and clean out. Try running dryer with vent not attached for 10 seconds. (Warning, lint and sand will likely come blasting out the back. Reattach and try. #2 Likely is that you have lint buildup inside. Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. Clean air path from exhaust through lint trap. Look inside or remove heater as well. You are likely overheating the dryer and the sensor is shutting it down. #3. Unplug the heating element and then run dryer. Does it shut off still? No Then the sensor on the heating element is bad. Yes then the timer is bad.

My dryer keeps shutting off after a few 10 to 13 minutes...and clothes are not drying. An element was changed some time ago. it does heat up but keeps shutting down...is it the timer or element?


Turn the breaker to the dryer completely off and back on again. Also check that nothing is blocking the venting. Remove the vent hose and run the unit if you are not sure. Make sure the lint trap is cleaned first. It probably is neither element nor timer since it is heating and quits without the timer advancing completely.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

It got too much lint in it and the heat shut off. I cleaned out the lint but don't know how to get the heat back on.


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement.
It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

restricted.

Whirlpool Electric dryer E1


An E1 Code is a thermistor fault TEST #3a Thermistor Test
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.
To access the Thermistor you will need to open the bottom front panel 2 screws the thermistor is on the exh duct (Center) check it there let me know if you need futher help
