Re: e-2 error code on whirlpool duet dryer
“E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.
The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
and off to maintain the desired temperature.
1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
the lint screen is clean.
3. Close the dryer door.
4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
shorted or open. Check the wire connections
at the thermistor or the machine
control electronics board. If wiring checks
okay, replace the thermistor.
6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
heat using the More Time or Less Time
How knows what the heck was going on I swear that is what it said and I am positive about the model number. After I changed the thermal fuse it showed an E6 and when you pushed temp. it was an E7. After all that it was the door switch. I finally found a service manual and it helped alot more than the tech sheet. Thanks guys for all your help. I get kinda lost without my hubby!

The first thing you need to check is your vent system. If your dryer vent is clogged with lint, the dryer has a hard time expelling the moisture.
Then, if the vent is clean, try using a timed drying cycle instead of a sensor cycle. If your clothes get dry using the timed cycle, then you might have a sensor problem.
Also, make sure your wash machine is properly spinning out the clothes. I saw that once before where the customer thought the problem was with the dryer, but it ended up being their wash machine's ATC switch adding water at the end of the spin cycle.
The alarm code is displayed by a repeated sequence of flashing of the ANTI-CREASE/END OF CYCLE LED (0.4 seconds on, 0.4 seconds off, with a pause of 2.5 seconds between sequences). The buzzer emits a series of ,bips" in synchronization with the flashing of the LED.
ANTI-CREASE/END OF CYCLE LED: indicates the first number of the a alarm code
START/PAUSE LED: indicates the second number of the alarm code
Now you must count how many times the LED lit up and we will know the fault code.
Typically error code AD indicates that the Auto Dry option has been selected. Typically when using no heat in any Auto Dry cycle will result in long drying times and/or wet loads at the end of cycle. I would suggest selecting another option or resetting your dryer. You may either unplug it or flip the household breaker off for approximately ten minutes. Turn your dryer on then select a normal cycle. Your appliance should resume normal operations. If this problem persists, your dryer may possibly have a faulty heating element, blower assembly or a communication problem with the control panel. This is not a normal DIY job. You may want to connect with a local servicer to determine the exact diagnosis. I hope this helps explain the error code you are receiving.
1. did you read the manual? 2. did you run a trial initial full cycle without clothes? 3. remember some factory stuff in the machine must have discolored your load. Now run a dry cycle again and try the same load.
This sounds like it is on a permanent press cycle. When it says end the clothes are dry.
Having said that....... If it is NEW this is a warranty repair. The moisture sensor is most likely the culprit causing the end of cycle trigger pre-maturely. Check around the moisture sensor for anything like bobby pins, straight pins, toothpicks (i.e anything foreign. Check the 2 strips and along the edges thoroughly for any foreigen matter.
If it is 2nd hand the moisture sensor is probably bad and passing false dry signals to the control. Again check for foreign debris before even thinking about replacing parts.
If you find nothing then before you buy parts there is a test for the moisture sensor. Just respond here and we can go from there.
The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.
If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time. Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)
To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
sounds like an air flow problem meaning the dryer is not exhausting the hot air. Best way to check is to disconnect exhaust tubing from dryer and run a cycle. If the clothes dry normally the vent to the outside is plugged. Hope this helps
From the AskMe Appliance site:
"I would first check the thermal fuse located on the back side if the blower housing. Unplug unit and disconnect 1 wire from the thermal fuse. If no continuity, replace and unit will run fine. It normally blows because of clogged blower housing or clogged vent hose."
A bad thermistor can cause intermittent problems so make sure all connections are tight and that the device is securely mounted. You could try jumping it out and running the dryer but only if you are standing right there watching and you are sure the vent line is clear.
Have the vent system from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house cleaned. If the dryer can't push air out, it can't bring air in, and the clothes won't dry. Another condition you might be seeing is moist lint developing around the gasket on the inside of the door. That's a sure sign the airstream is restricted somewhere.
Problem solved! We read on here about someone else addressing the AF code by removing the back panel and fixing the pully that had come off. Belt was fine, with pully back in place dryer now works perfectly again. Thank you for saving us so much time and money!
