Question about Whirlpool WGD5900S Gas Dryer
Remove the back from your dryer and locate your thermal fuse (a football shaped white thing) mounted to the blower housing (below the lint screen and to the left of where your vent connects).
With the dryer un-plugged disconnect the wires to this device and connect the ends of the two wires together and make sure they are not touching any thing metal, plug the dryer in and try it again.
Chances are this is your culprit. Part number is 3390719
DO NOT leave it by-passed as it is a safety feature.
DO check your vent for restrictions that may have caused this to blow.
DO Let me know if this does not solve the issue or you have any other questions!

Hello barnessursula - Typically error code E5E indicates that there is a communication problem. Base on the intensity of the issue, I suggest contacting a professional technician to accurately repair the unit. Technician will need to check the wiring between the main control board and the speed control board. Depending on the diagnoses and if the wiring is bad, it has to be corrected. However, if the wiring is good the main control board will need to be replace or if the problem is not corrected, the speed control board will need replacing.
