Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn

My Whirlpool Dryer (model no. LGR4634EQO) is no longer heating, or getting hot at all. How can I troubleshoot it??


Hello.

suggestions about things they can do to troubleshoot commonproblems.

Instructions
    • 1 Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen ifthe clothes are not dry after a drying cycle completes. Remove the lint fromthe lint screen and replace the screen. The dryer ought to dry more efficientlyafter the lint screen is cleaned.
    • 2 Open your home's breaker box if the dryer is notturning on or no indicator lights are visible on the front panel. If theswitches for the dryer in the breaker box are flipped to "Off," flipthe switches over to the "On" position.
    • 3 Remove some of the clothing in the dryer or drysmaller loads if you notice that the clothing is wrinkled when you finishdrying a load. Larger loads cause the clothing to wrap around one another whendrying, increasing the likelihood of wrinkles.
    • 4
Pull the dryer unit away from the wall and checkon the position and arrangement of the exhaust vent. An exhaust vent that ispinched between the wall and the appliance or an exhaust vent that is kinkedcan't allow air to flow through it properly, making it difficult for theappliance to dry properly.
    • 5
Make sure the door is closed if the dryerdoes notrun. Also check to make sure that you hold in the "Start" button forat least a second. Pressing the button for less than a second may not give thethe dryer enough time to recognize the button has been pressed and that itshould start.

Thanks for using fixya.

Hi and welcome to fixya,

This problem can be caused by poor air circulation inside. In order to efficiently remove lint from clothes, load the dryer 1/2 of its drum capacity. It also helps putting fabric conditioner sheets to prevent clothes from charging static electricity which can attract lint..

Hope this helps,

EI or E1 appearing


E1 is an open thermistor. The thermistor lives on top of the blower housing. Get to it by removing the bottom quarter panel. Get to it by removing the bottom quarter panel.

Clothes seem to take longer to dry and I keep getting an E1 error code on my Whirlpool duet dryer. Model #GGW9209LW0. Dryer is about 8 years old. Lint is not an issue.


The error code E1 indicates the control senses an open thermistor either due to a loose connection or a failed thermistor. Check the thermistor connection to the control and replace the thermistor (part number 8577274) if the connections are good and snug fit.

Remove the two screws securing the toe panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and out. Remove the hex-head screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the lint duct.

Facing the rear of the dryer, the thermistor, usually black, is located on the blower housing to the right of the thermal fuse. Remove the two screws securing it to the blower housing and secure the new thermistor in place.

Connect the wires then reinstall the lint duct and the lint duct bracket. Slide the toe panel up into position to the cabinet and secure it.

Dryer starts runs for 4min flashes e1 turns off


The E-1 error code is a thermistor error, some problem with the variable resistance.....this can be caused by over use of fabric softener sheets, which can cause lint to become tacky and coat the thermistor, or it just simply failed. Try replacing the thermistor.
