I've read in other forums that E1 means the thermistor has failed. As far as I understand, it monitors the temperature of the air that is leaving the dryer and entering the dryer vent. If you're not handy, a service call is in order.

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

The problem is an open thermistor as what error code E1 means. It's either the thermistor is exhibits an extremely high resistance or the wire harness connecting it to the control board is broken or cut open. Click on the link below for the detailed procedure in troubleshooting this error code.

The dryer shuts off, keep getting an E1 code, what needs to be done


It sounds like this is a Whirlpool Duet or a Kenmore Elite Dryer due to the error code E1 being available only on this models. The problem here is an open thermistor as what error code E1 means. It's either the thermistor is exhibits an extremely high resistance or the wire harness connecting it to the control board is broken or cut open. Click on the link below for the detailed procedure in accessing the thermistor.

Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite Electric Dryers Not Starting


Measure the resistance of the thermistor and refer the table below. Normal thermistor resistance is around 10000 ohms (10K) at room temperature.

Replace the thermistor if the resistance is significantly higher (or lower) than what it is supposed to be based on the resistance table above. Check the wire harness connecting it to the control board, if the resistance turns out good, and make sure the connectors are good and the wires are intact. Replace the wire harness if necessary. Consider replacing the control board if both the thermistor and the wire harness turn out good. The link below might enlighten you further on the troubleshooting of the thermistor.

What does E1 mean?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Can you possibly double check that model number and reply post. I ask because the "E1" error should only pertain to those models which are condensor (non-vented)... "WTL" dryers.

The error indicates either a blocked drain hose or a failed pump. This from Bosch...


E1 Pump failed

(WTL 5400condensationdryer only) Pump failed.

Check voltage at and wiring to pump.

Turn off dryer, measure pump resistance (110 - 136 ?) and replace faulty pump.

Also - Following items apply only to the WTL (Condensation Electric Dryer) models

Cycle is interrupted and ''E1'' appears in display• Condensate hose is blocked in some way. Turn off dryer and check hose.

I'll watch for your reply and try and help you move forward in any manner I can.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

E-1 CODE


Hello there
This code can sometimes be the e-1 or sometimes the e-2 here is the descrioption of what it means
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.Dryer thermistor assembly

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!
