The Sharp e1 problem is a timer that is pretending to demand that you clean the filter. It stops the machine every 720 hours and forces you to do a procedure to get it to go away.
There are 2 possible procedures.
1) Unplug the machine. Hold down the power button while you plug the machine in and wait for a beep about 5 seconds long. Let go of the power button. Unplug the machine. Plug it back in.
2) Unplug the machine. Hold down the mode button while plugging the machine back in and waiting for a beep of about 3 seconds duration. Let go of the mode button. The machine will start. Turn the machine off by pressing the power button. Resume trying to use the machine normally.
If these don't work, the "demand to clean filter" timer is broken and you will need to buy parts to repair the machine.

I have a G.E. window air conditioner that kept giving me the E1 error code and would not allow the unit to turn on. After much frustration (and no results from following various tips on internet forums) I decided that I had nothing to lose by taking the thing apart. After all, it was way past the warranty period.
Make sure the unit is unplugged before doing any of the following.
When I took off the cover (not the front grill, but the metal cover over all the internal parts) I found a small black envelope stuck to the top of the styrofoam inside the unit. What an inconvenient place to find what the error codes mean! It obviously means they don't want the average customer to know any of this. "E1" means a short or open circuit, unit inoperable.
With that in mind I noticed that the black two conductor sensor wire was broken. This is the wire that leads from the sensor on the front fins to the control circuit board. After soldering it back together and wrapping it well with electrical tape the unit works perfectly.
If you don't wish to try soldering the wire, it can be unplugged from the circuit board. I would not be surprised if you can order a new sensor (with wire and plug attached) from a G.E. parts supplier.
By the way, this particular G.E. 6100 BTU air conditioner was manufactured by Samsung electronics.
