The TS code means the thermistor is shorted.


A restricted vent or the wrong vent hose can cause the early demise of heating parts on a dryer. Be sure you do not have foil duct on back...use the semi-rigid type instead. The instructions that come with the dryer are pretty clear in this regard.

This part is located on the blower duct inside the cabinet.

Hello i got a maytag dryer model #mde6700ayw wont run and give me a code t5 what can ii do to fix that problem


I believe that your code is actually "tS" vs t5. TS is a shorted thermistor

From the repair manual.

tS = Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed

{The Thermistor resistance is very low}.

Check for:

- Clogged lint screen.

- Restricted vent system.

- Check Thermistor resistance.

- Check for diagnostic code 1


The thermistor is item 50 this link: PN 35001191
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174648&diagram_id=28603393#d28603393


The thermistor has to be shorted to the chassis to get this code.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a Whirlpool gew9868kl3 dryer. The dryer only clicks when you try to start it. I did the diagnostic check on it and I do not come up with any errors. I did however find two things during the check...


one of 3 things can be wrong 1) make sure on an electrically heated element dryer that you have 240 volts,because if not either the timer or motor wont turn and it will not heat without 240 volts,2) if you can hold the start switch in the start position and you can hear the motor running then its a broken belt and there is a switch on the idler pulley tensioner bracket to stop the motor so if the drum wont turn the unit also wont heat to protect against overheating clothes starting a fire. 3) if no sound then either the motor switch is bad or there is a wire off the motor start switch which is very common due to vibration

Dryer has a t5 error code and won't start.


There should be two or three screws at the back holding the top on. Take these out and slide the top back and off. Inside should be a service tech sheet that will tell you what the code means and what to replace or check. Once the top is removed it shouldnt be hard to see how it is disassembled.
