Dryer shuts off after 5min (code E1)


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.

Good Luck!!

Change a 3 prong plug to 4 prong


Is it an electric dryer or gas dryer? If it's a 120 volt gas dryer, then no, you need to keep it on a 3 prong cord. If it's an electric dryer, then yes it is possible to install a four prong plug onto it. Although it isn't recommended.
The main thing you need to know is which wire is ground. From the machine, it should be the green wire. On the plug, there should be on prong that is slightly longer than the other 3. The ground has to be the first one in the wall receptacle and the last one out. So the slightly longer one is where the green ground wire needs to be wired in. The other two wires are both power so it doesn't really matter which prong you wire those wires at.
Once again I'll remind you that it isn't recommended to convert 3 to 4 prongs like that. Just be careful and make sure you aren't touching any live wires.

I don't have the same plug as the one on my kenmore 70 dryer


Hi, You can either change the outlet or change the cord. Easiest would be to get a new caord. Make sure you get the right one. There are two different ground posts.
One is straight and one is L shaped.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Conecting a 220w plug into a standar wall plug


If you are using an elctric ( not a gas) dryer then never try to plug the power cord of that drywr into a 220VAC wall receptacle. It isn't rated for the appropriate current that the dryer requires..However if yiou have a dryer that operates the contro system and is NOT a Gas dryer than you will need the proper plug end that matches the receptacle on your wall. Most harware stores should carry the right plug. I do not know what country you wrote your problem from and there are different power grids throughout. In general though, if you do have the right plug that matches your wall receptacle and it has 3 prongs... the two side prongs are normally the power and the disimilar prong is ground.. Can't help you with any additional details without knowing what you are confronted with..
