Hi

Error E1 means thermistor is open. The thermistor is on the top of the blower housing. Remove the bottom panel, locate the thermistor and replace it. It looks like this--

    Will that make my dryer shut off

  • kpleom Aug 01, 2011

    What does the thermistor do? Will it go at once or go bad little by little?

    yes

  • kpleom Aug 02, 2011

    Will a lint build up also make it shut off and give the same E1 code?

  • Daniel Scott
    Daniel Scott Aug 02, 2011

    Yes either a lint build up or a bad thermistor/thermal fuse

  • kpleom Aug 02, 2011

    I checked the lint and it was ok, when I put a load in it squeaks and then shuts off. What is making the squeaking sound.

Hello,

The E1 error code means that the electronic thermostat is the problem. With what your describing as far as it being very hot and the E1 code,i would suspect one of 2 things;

1) the thermister is bad and needs to be replaced

2) thier is a blocked/restricted vent and or excessive lint built up in the blower housing causing the heat to be retained in the dryer instead of being vented out and across the thermister where its getting a false reading and throwing up the E1 error code

We have a Whirlpool Dryer Duet. The Dryer will stop even though the clothes are not dried. It then gives us a code E1. What does that code mean? The dryer is 7 years old.


CHeck you oners manual. It should say the error codes. I believe its located on the back of the bottom panel cover. If not there, take the top panel off. Two screws on the back corner and then slide it back and lift it out the way. Check inside around the side panel. Not sure what code that may be but the manuel should be able to tell you. hopefully this helps
