Question about Whirlpool Dryers
SOURCE: whirlpool duet dryer shuts off
E1 is an open thermistor. The thermistor lives on top of the blower housing. Get to it by removing the bottom quarter panel.Does the E1 error represent failure of the thermistor,
The quarter panel is right there in front, down at the bottom, below the door. Look closely and you'll see two screws. Remove them and the panel comes right off. Some pics at this link:

The 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 in 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 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.
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 duct.
Remove the wires from the terminals of the thermistor when measuring its resistance. Remove the two-hex-head screws securing it to the blower housing when replacing it and install the new one. Reassemble in reverse order of the disassembly steps.
