Derf, E1 means an open thermistor. If this is a front loader, remove the lower panel by removing the 3 screws on the bottom panel. The thermistor will be sitting right behind the blower housing next to a white thermal fuse. The thermistor is the black one. If this is a standard model the lower panel should open by sliding a puddy knife on the two clips and pulling foward. The thermistor is in the same place as a front loader. Your part number should be 3976615. An easy job. Don't forget to kill the power to the unit when repairing...Good luck.

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

What does F-1 mean on a Duet front load dryer? Our dryer's lights will turn on but, the dryer will not start up. At first we thought the control panel was locked out. But, it wasn't.

The "F-1" error code means a failure occurred with the electronic controls.. This could mean that wires are broken, the electronics shorted out or a manufacturer's default error shut the washer down.

Prevention/Solution: The electronic control panel needs replacement. Find your dryer serial number and search for the part online. This is a lengthy job that usually requires a repairman unless you have dealt with and repaired dryers before.

If your dryer was purchased within the past couple of years, the dryer could be covered under the warranty. Visit the Whirlpool customer service page for more information or Whirlpool-Duet-Dryer-fault-codes

Hope this helps.

Electric dryer keeps stopping

Most likely, the operating thermostat has failed, and the high limit thermostat turns off the dryer when it gets too hot. When it cools down, it will start again.

My whirlpool dryer just beeps when you try to start it. The panel is lit up the door is shut, push start and it just beeps...any idea what the problem is

To unlock the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold the End Of Cycle Signal button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off.

NOTE: When the dryer is running and Control Locked light is on, the dryer can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If holding doesn't unlock the feature, it is likely a faulty interface. I am having the same problem with my Whirlpool dryer and it is the interface, but it seems that a lot of people are able to correct the issue just by pressing the End of Cycle button for 3 minutes.

Here is a link to parts, numbers, and prices from Sears:
