The error code E1 indicates the control senses an open thermistor either due to a loose connection or a failed thermistor. Check the thermistor connection to the control and replace the thermistor (part number 8577274) if the connections are good and snug fit.

Remove the two screws securing the toe panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and out. Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the lint duct.

Facing the rear of the dryer, the thermistor, usually black, is located on the blower housing to the right of the thermal fuse. Remove the two screws securing it to the blower housing and secure the new thermistor in place.

Connect the wires then reinstall the lint duct and the lint duct bracket. Slide the toe panel up into position to the cabinet and secure it.

Shortly after starting a load in the dryer, the dryer stops, beeps and the lighted code says E1. The grid on back wall of dryer is very hot. I am unable to find my instruction booklet. This keeps...


Hello,

The E1 error code means that the electronic thermostat is the problem. With what your describing as far as it being very hot and the E1 code,i would suspect one of 2 things;

1) the thermister is bad and needs to be replaced

2) thier is a blocked/restricted vent and or excessive lint built up in the blower housing causing the heat to be retained in the dryer instead of being vented out and across the thermister where its getting a false reading and throwing up the E1 error code

We have a Whirlpool Dryer Duet. The Dryer will stop even though the clothes are not dried. It then gives us a code E1. What does that code mean? The dryer is 7 years old.


CHeck you oners manual. It should say the error codes. I believe its located on the back of the bottom panel cover. If not there, take the top panel off. Two screws on the back corner and then slide it back and lift it out the way. Check inside around the side panel. Not sure what code that may be but the manuel should be able to tell you. hopefully this helps

My whirlpool gas dryer keeps coming up with E1 error code after drying for about 50 min, model ggw9200lwo. Any solutions to what the probelm might be?


The E1 code means there is an open thermistor. This thermistor is located on top of the blower housing. Access it by removing the bottom panel on the front of the dryer. This device is not repairable, so unless it's just a loose connection or the device is not firmly mounted, it will need to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer before you work on it!

Dryer not drying


look at the vent outside and see if it closing or even has a cover this allows cold air inside the dryer and cause it to take longer to dry

Clothes take longer to dry


The first thing to check on would be your ventillation. Check at the outside of the house to make sure you have a strong amount of airflow coming out of the vent. Should blow pretty hard. If not you need to get your vents cleaned and also make sure the duct behind the dryer is not crushed. Hope this helps. Dave www.washermd.com

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
supply connected.
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)
and Start.
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
pushbuttons.
