A code E1 flashes the dryer shuts off and the clothes are still wet


The fault code E1 means the electronic control detected the thermistor is open. It's either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and electronic control is broken or the connection is loose or the thermistor is indeed open. Measure the resistance of the thermistor then refer to the temperature and resistance table for the normal thermistor resistance values.

Take the top off the dryer and inside you'll find the "tech sheet." It has instructions for removing the front panel and locating the thermistor.

Whirlpool duet dryer runs and heats well for 4-5 minutes then shuts off. it has a light that flashes E1. what is the problem??


E1 THERMISTOR OPEN "E1" flashes if the thermistor is open.

Check your wire connections on your thermistor and your control board. If they (connections) are good you should replace your thermistor. If you would like more detailed instructions in performing the "THERMISTOR TEST" post back here and I will find you a manual or find a way to scan you mine. Or, you can merely remove the top of your dryer and inside you will find the TECH SHEET giving you detailed instructions on this test and many more.

An E1 Code is a thermistor fault TEST #3a Thermistor Test

exhaust temperature using the thermistor, and
cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain
the desired temperature.
Begin with an empty dryer and a clean lint
screen.
1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
2. Set the following configuration:
➔ Door – must be firmly closed
➔ Press Control On
➔ Press End Of Cycle Signal (Louder)
➔ Press Start
3. If after 60 seconds, E1 or E2 flashes in the
display and the dryer shuts off, the thermistor
or wire harness is either shorted or open.
➔ Unplug dryer or disconnect power
➔ Check wire connections at the machine
control electronics and thermistor.
To access the Thermistor you will need to open the bottom front panel 2 screws the thermistor is on the exh duct (Center) check it there let me know if you need futher help
