Whirlpool Electric dryer E1

Dryer keeps shutting off, flashes "E1". Sometimes I'll hit start as it flashes and it restarts. Sometimes finishes cycle. Sometimes not. I notice it shuts off more as the load is wet/heavier. Any suggestions??

    my whirlpool duet dryer keeps shutting off, flashes E1 sometimes I can hit start and it will come back on but other times I have to push cancel and restart. Sometimes it doesn't show sensor the dampness of the clothes and just stays one sensoring. I had a repair man out and he thought it was the breaker swithch in the breaker box ... had that checked out and it is not the problem. He also had us take off the dryer vent from the back of the dryer and it is still doing the same thing.

    Can you help:(

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

This is a failed thermistior error code.

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.

2. Set the following configuration:

? Door - must be firmly closed

? Press Control On

? Press End Of Cycle Signal (Louder)

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. See

Accessing & Removing the Electronic

Assemblies, page 7, and figure 8 for

thermistor location.

? If wire connections are good, remove the

two wires from the thermistor and replace
the thermistor.

Whirlpool 6 cycle dryer keeps shutting off. it will start back up and run, sometimes it will finish the load and most times it will shut back off in 5 to 20 min.


vent is restricted, disconnect vent tube run dryer. Clean out your restricted vent tube with a leaf blower and make sure it is not kinked or too long, this should help Tim:

Dryer stops soon afetr cycle starts, E1 appears


ensure lint trap is clean and venting is not restricted or blocked.

E1 or E2 Thermistor Failure The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the error code E2 flashes in the display.

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

ERROR CODE E1 MODLE #GGW9200LW O


E1 error code is for the thermistor, try cleaning off the bottom of the thermistor, (sometimes tacky lint will coat them), if that doesn't help, just replace the thermistor.

Dryer starts runs for 4min flashes e1 turns off


The E-1 error code is a thermistor error, some problem with the variable resistance.....this can be caused by over use of fabric softener sheets, which can cause lint to become tacky and coat the thermistor, or it just simply failed. Try replacing the thermistor.
