Does the burner turn off as well? is the dryer vent clear, if u have not checked do so, clogged/obstructed? dryer vents cause an overheat and quickly trip the thermal limiter

    If your air flow is good, then the problem is your thermistor, I have changed many of these before due to this problem.

    Here is a new thermistor you can order:








    The thermistor is just to the right of your thermal fuse on the blower housing.

    Look at this parts diagram:
    http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImageP...&...
    #42 is your thermistor, #59 is your thermal fuse

Hi I have a kenmore elite oasis dryer. And all of a sudden it only will run for about a minute and then it shuts off. I tried turning it back on again and it does the same thing. Then after the third time...


The first suggestion I have for you is to simply run an Air Fluff cycle with no heat.

If the Air Fluff cycle runs okay then the problem is most likely with the thermistor.

You can try to run the dryer with the vent hose off and see if there is a difference.

Ok
E2 means the control board has sensed problem or shorted thermister. Located on blower housing.

Turns off after a few minutes


sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

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.
