8577274--- part number. you can find it behind the lower access panel, you then see the lint filter housing.(3)screws remove it and right behind there it mounted next to a thermal fuse, easy enough to do a few screws a couple of wires. turn off power as they are LIVE wires.

Dryer will not start get an error code that looks like a t5.


It is actually error code "tS" which stands for thermistor shorted. The control interprets it as an extremely low resistance which is a result of a the dryer overheating. Locate the thermistor on the blower housing and replace it. Click on the link below and refer to the parts diagram then look for item number 27(thermistor).

I have a Samsung Gas dryer DV337AGW/XAA. I have an error code that looks like a capital E with the top bar left off and 5. Went through the troubleshooting check list and no fix.


The error code is actually tS which means thermistor short circuit is sensed. The thermistor is located located on the blower housing and it requires the removal of the front panel to access it. Check for clogged lint screen and restricted vent system if the thermistor is found shorted or open then replace it.

Click on the link below on how to remove the front panel and get to the blower housing then locate and replace the thermistor with part number 35001191 or DC32-00007A.

I've located the thermal fuse on the blower housing and there is no continuity. Next to it is the drier thermister and I have no continuity there either. If I replace the fuse where do I go from there?...


The thermal fuse is blown open due to the thermistor being open (no continuity). The thermistor is a negative temperature coefficient resistor in which the resistance varies inversely with the temperature. Since the thermistor is open (infinite resistance), the electronic control board "thinks" the dryer temperature is too low. It then activates the heater relay continuously which makes the dryer overheat and blow the thermal fuse open to stop the motor which eventually turns off the heating element. Replace both the thermal fuse and the thermistor and it should your problem. They are manufacturer part numbers 3392519 and 8577274, respectively. The part numbers AP3132867 and AP3919451 are used only by www.partselect.com.

Kenmore elite evenflow with auto temp control starts drying and after a couple of minutes gets an E1 error code. Does not appear to over heat and is not on long when it errors. Does it on all settings.


E1 code indicates a thermistor failure. You will need to replace the thermistor. Remove the lower panel to access the thermistor. It looks like the picture below...

Replacing Thermistor on Kenmore 11078062801 dryer


Disconnect power then remove the screws securing the rear panel to the cabinet as shown.

Once the rear panel is off, you'll see the exhaust along with the thermal fuse on the blower housing as shown.

Simply unscrew the thermistor if it needs to be replaced and screw the new thermistor in place then transfer the wires from the old thermistor. If your dryer has the inlet thermistor that needs to be replaced, do the same as the outlet thermistor above.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer keeps stopping indicating an E1 error. The model number is 110C82822100


Hi there,

Well the error E1 message indicates that the thermistor is defective and needs to be replaced.
Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes got rid of the error, but lately the temperature just hasn't been hot enough so the clothes don't dry. You must need to replace the thermistor for full working of your dryer. you may please follow the below steps to know how to change the thermistor -
1. Locate the thermistor on the top right hand side of your dryer. This will be a small platelet with a chip and wires coming out of it. Use your screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the thermistor on the unit.
2. Unplug the wires from the thermistor.
3. Plug the wires into your new thermistor. Replace the thermistor on the dryer and the screws holding it in place.
4. Replace the back panel of the dryer and plug your dryer back into the wall outlet.
5. Push your dryer back up against the wall and turn it on again.

Kenmore elite, model 110 60952990,stopped working after I tried to dry a pair of sneekers. It doesn't do anything when the power butten is pushed. Thank you.


The thermal fuse (part number 3390719) is blown causing the motor not to run. This thermal fuse is located on the blower housing beside the thermistor (part number 8577274) and it is wired in series with the motor thereby cutting power to the motor when it fails. The failure of the thermal fuse is due the failed thermistor; these requires both the thermal fuse and the thermistor to be replace.

Access to the thermal fuse and the thermistor for replacement or testing requires the removal of the lower front access panel which is secured to the front panel by two retaining clips positioned about three inches away from the sides. Pry the clips to release it and remove the lower front access panel. The thermal fuse and the thermistor can now be accessed.

Using a volt-ohmmeter, check the continuity of the thermal fuse which is to the left of the thermistor. Replace the thermal fuse if it reads open together with the thermistor.

Remove the mounting screws and mount the new parts in place. Disconnect the wires from the old failed parts and connect it to the corresponding component. Reinstall the lower front access panel back into position.

My GEW9200LW0 electric dryer will stop after a few minutes and flash E1 code. Is it most likely a faulty thermistor? How do I know the correct part # to order?


HI, the thermistor is the culprit in this situation. the actual location of the affected part is inside the unit, on the blower housing(mounted on the backside). The part number is (3976615)

E-1:=(Failed Thermistor)

SIDE NOTE:-The manufacturer has replaced part number 3976615 with this item, part number 8577274. 8577274 may differ in appearance, but is a functional equivalent to prior parts including 3976615.
