The E-1 code indicates an open thermistor.  it will need to be replaced and it is usually sold as kit with the thermal cut off ( high limit ).  not a hard job.

E1 error


The fault code E1 means the electronic control detected the thermistor is open. It's either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and electronic control is broken or the connection is loose or the thermistor is indeed open. Measure the resistance of the thermistor then refer to the temperature and resistance table for the normal thermistor resistance values.

How do I take the front panel off my kenmore elite electric dryer to see if their are tech notes about my E1error code? My dryer turns off after only a few minutes displaying and E1 error code. The...


The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.

The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.

The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.

The thermistor is available from the following: www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model # in the appropriate box to get a full parts break-down and diagrams.

To access the thermistor see the image below.

Remember to unplug the dryer from power first.

The thermistor will have a black and red/white wire on it.

You can check continuity across it with the meter and if the circuit is open then the thermistor needs to be replaced.



When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

The thermistor -may- check ok when cool and freak out when warm!

Kenmore Elite HE3 gas dryer, runs ok for 5 minutes, then keeps shutting off with an E1 message. Thanks for helping. I read it might be time for a new thermistor. Where can I buy that part? Is it easy to...


First you'll want to pull off the top and try and wiggle every connection you see to the board located in back right. An E1 is a "faulty control" message a few hundred bucks for the part I recommend you use a service company they may charge 200.00 in service and labor, but you'll get at least a ninty day warrenty. And only they can switch out electrical parts ... You'll find it much less headache in the long run.

I have a Kenmore Electric HE3 dryer that displays the E1 error code. My husband is good at fixing just about anything so he wants to fix this himself. Is this the Thermistor? Where is it located?

HE3 dryer stops drying with code E1


Hi, how are ya?

The E1 is a thermistor problem. It's a little black fuse that's next to the thermal fuse on the duct housing.

It's pretty easy to fix. You need to take the bottom pannel off and then the black blower housing.

Good luck :)

I constantly got E1 Error code on my Kenmore Elite H3 GAS dryer


E1 error code indicates an open thermistor or open thermistor circuit. A thermistor is a component that relays the temperature in the dryer to the control board. If the thermistor has failed, Error code E1 will be displayed.
You need to call a repair person to fix it.

Kenmore he3


becky843,
Huuum,at your service!

With an error code.

This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems.
if they are not serious, or they are a temp glitch!




How old is the appliance?
