Question about Whirlpool GEW9200L Electric Dryer

Dryer stops running and displays E1

My Whirpool Duet dryer, model number GEW9200LW0, stops drying clothes after a couple of minutes of being on and displays an error code E1. I have the same problem. I have checked the vents, they seem to be working fine -- I can feel air coming out of the vent on the outside of the house and there is no lint blocking it.

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 duet whirpool electric dryer keeps stoping before my clothes are dry


Make sure you are not using a timed drying setting. Use one of the pre programmed functions on the dial. These settings are meant to use a sensor and stop when the clothes are dry. If the problem continues on one of these settings, there is likely a problem with the sensor or your heating element

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The dreaded E1 error code is telling you that the thermistor on the dryer has failed and needs to be replaced

Shuts off during autodry cycle. stays on during timed cycle but clothes are wrinkled ans too hot at end of cycle.


if it works on auto but not on time you have a bad timer,it's not counting down,it's better to use auto anyway,when the clothes dry the dryer shuts off on it's own,this way your not using extra electricity,if your clothes dry in 30 minutes and it's on 60 minutes it will still run after the clothes are dry on auto it doesn't.if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,your missing a couple of letters on the model number.

My dryer starts runs for a few minutes then stops with an E1 on


clear the exhaust tube of lint and make sure you have good air flow out of house and also if you happen to keep anything on top of your dryer please i say this to all NEVER keep anything on top ot it. Clothes or stacked items on top insulates your cabinet and makes dryer run improperly. Nowadays with sensors and all, it fools your machine when you have stuff on top of it. Good Luck

Dryer will not stay running through entire cycle or it will just stop before clothers are dry and sometimes get a E1 error message. Mostly it will just stop and clothes are not dry, times that is runs...


Most customer manuels have a code listing in the back? Have you checked to see what E1 is? It sounds like its not sensing properly. the sensor works off the vent...so the most common problem is the vent or venting. Please check and advise

Error Code


I don't have a manual on the newest dryer like you have, but one of the models just older than yours has a F23 code that indicates a shorted thermistor.( temp sensor )
Since it is new you need to call for service. They will usually look up the code and tell you if it is anything you need to check but most likely you will need a repairman to repair it in warranty.
Post back if you have any questions.
