Question about Whirlpool Dryers
fault code 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 below for the normal
thermistor resistance values. Replace the thermistor if the measured
resistance is not within range of the table.
Check the continuity of the wire harness if the thermistor resistance is good and make sure the connectors are fully inserted. Replace the harness if it is broken (no continuity). The problem lies in the electronic control board if no issue is found in the harness and the connections.
The thermistor is located on the blower housing and can be accessed through the toe panel. Shut off the gas supply if your dryer is gas type and disconnect electrical power to the dryer. Remove the two hex-head screws from the bottom flange of the toe panel then pull the panel down and off the cabinet.
