SOURCE: Error E1

I went on another site where I found out that it was a thermistor a part of the heat blower. I will be ordering it for $20 off that site and my husband will fix it.

SOURCE: Sud and F35 error in my kenmore elite h5 steam

I got the f35 and suds code repeatedly and my clothes weren't washed, I ordered from Sears the analog pressure switch that regulates the water coming into the washer and the codes went away, the part is esitmately $125.00 including shipping but you have to order from the Sears parts department.If you print a diagram of the washer it is #38 in the diagram and is easy to replace. You can install it yourself and as a female I did not call service to do it.

SOURCE: what is error code e1?

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!

Kenmore Elite stops early and flashes e1. How do we corect this Thanks Todd


The electronic control detected the thermistor is open. 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.

Has a E1 code


If I remember correctly that means the thermistor is shorted or open on a Kenmore elite model. You can take off that bottom front panel and should find the tech sheet which will inform you what the code means.. The thermistor is located behind the lower panel, then behind that black duct which 1/4 inch screws hold it in. Remember to take the lint screen out before duct can be removed fully. Then once duct is removed you'll see 4 wires connected to 2 different thermostats. White one is thermal fuse and the black one on the right is the thermistor. Unplug power or shut off breaker before going any further. Hope this helps
