LG portable ac (LP0910WRN) has E1 code and wont turn on. Do I need to replace thermistor?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Kenmore Elite Gas Dryer: Dryer does not dry clothes completely, even when I set the times for 80-minutes. I usually need to set the timer an additional 60-minutes resulting in 2-hrs + 20-minutes of dryer...


    • 1 Check the dryer's fuse if the dryer's drum operates but does not heat. The fuse may not be working properly if there is a break inside. If it happens to be broken, replace it with a new fuse.
    • 2 The dryer's heating will not function properly if the timer does not work. Fix a bad timer by disconnecting the leads from the motor and setting the Volt-Ohm, or VOM, to RX100. Clip off the probes onto the leads. If the timer is set on infinity, then it needs to be replaced.
    • 3 If the drum is no longer spinning, first check to see if the motor pulley is working correctly. If it is not, then it will need to be replaced. Once everything is dissembled, take time out to clean out the compartment with a vacuum to remove dust and lint.
    • 4 If the dryer still is not functioning, then the dryer's belt may be broken. To fix the dryer's belt, you'll have to replace it with a new one. Line up the replacement belt with markings on the drums seen on the damaged one. Wind it around both the motor pulley and the idler pulley.
    • 5 The roller also could be damaged if the dryer still continues to not work. Fix the damaged roller by removing the tumbler to gain access, then remove the retaining clip on the roller by sliding it off. Reverse the process to install a new one
    • 6 If the dryer is not working at all (when you turn it on by the switch and it still does not work), consider replacing the terminal block. Use the VOM to check for voltage at the terminal block. Use extreme caution as the power needs to be on to run this test. Call an experienced electrician for help if need be.
    • 7 If the dryer is not working still, test to see if the dryer's switches are working properly. Set the VOM to RX1 and get rid of one of the leads to the switch, clipping the probes to the switch's terminals. When the reader is switched to infinity, press the start button. If the reader does not switch to zero, then the switch is bad and needs to be replaced by a professional.

Hello,

I have seen that in those dryers before and it has always been the motor that is causing it to start without engaging the start switch.

broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

Installed new motor on GE dryer. Have power, but does not start


There is a broken belt switch by the idler pulley. Make sure that its clicking and closing when you move the idler up and down. If the idler is out of position it will not actuate the broken belt switch and the unit wont run. You could also bypass your door switch to eliminate that as a problem. Hope this helps _MJ_

CHECK THE FOLLOWING--

Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
