Kenmore elite He4 the dryer (front load) runs and spins, stops and displays E2 trouble code


The E2 error message indicates the control has detected a shorted thermistor. A defective/faulty thermistor can cause your dryer not to run Most likely replacing the thermistor will fix this problem.
The thermistor is normally in the back of the dryer, remove the panel to locate.
Look on the air tube for wires connection to something that looks like this.
The thermistor is located beneath the red wire oval in shape.

The dryer shuts off, keep getting an E1 code, what needs to be done


It sounds like this is a Whirlpool Duet or a Kenmore Elite Dryer due to the error code E1 being available only on this models. The problem here is an open thermistor as what error code E1 means. It's either the thermistor is exhibits an extremely high resistance or the wire harness connecting it to the control board is broken or cut open. Click on the link below for the detailed procedure in accessing the thermistor.

Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite Electric Dryers Not Starting


Measure the resistance of the thermistor and refer the table below. Normal thermistor resistance is around 10000 ohms (10K) at room temperature.

Replace the thermistor if the resistance is significantly higher (or lower) than what it is supposed to be based on the resistance table above. Check the wire harness connecting it to the control board, if the resistance turns out good, and make sure the connectors are good and the wires are intact. Replace the wire harness if necessary. Consider replacing the control board if both the thermistor and the wire harness turn out good. The link below might enlighten you further on the troubleshooting of the thermistor.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer keeps stopping indicating an E1 error. The model number is 110C82822100


Hi there,

Well the error E1 message indicates that the thermistor is defective and needs to be replaced.
Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes got rid of the error, but lately the temperature just hasn't been hot enough so the clothes don't dry. You must need to replace the thermistor for full working of your dryer. you may please follow the below steps to know how to change the thermistor -
1. Locate the thermistor on the top right hand side of your dryer. This will be a small platelet with a chip and wires coming out of it. Use your screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the thermistor on the unit.
2. Unplug the wires from the thermistor.
3. Plug the wires into your new thermistor. Replace the thermistor on the dryer and the screws holding it in place.
4. Replace the back panel of the dryer and plug your dryer back into the wall outlet.
5. Push your dryer back up against the wall and turn it on again.

Kenmore electric dryer heat stays on when door open


Sounds like your thermistor/thermostats could be your problem.
They control the heat coming from the heating coil.
Unplug the dryer.
If you remove the back of the dryer, look for the air tube coming from the blower to the drum, normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermistor/thermostats. Replace as needed.
Good luck,
Hope this helps

Check thermistor with ohm meter, make sure you unplug unit first, make sure wires are removed from thermistor or you will read ohms thru the wiring. If thermistor checks ok, the you have a relay board problem. replace power board.

Kenmore dryer 61062 stops frequently


An E1 error message usually indicates that the thermistor (see the following link) is defective and needs to be replaced. Without that part working properly, the electronic control could do unexpected things.
