Kenmore dryer HE3 code E1
Dryer will only run for 2-3 mins on any cycle before shutting down. It throws a code E1. Any ideas?
frank, E1 is a Thermistor error. First of course disconnect the power. Then remove the lint filter screen. Remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the toe kick panel. Pull the toe kick panel out at the bottom, pull down, and remove the panel. Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two screws from the lint duct and remove the duct. You'll find the white thermal fuse on your blower wheel housing, right beside it is the thermistor. Replacing it should eliminate E1. The Whirlpool part number is 8577274 and in the attached image the part is located at position 42
He3 dryer control board burnt out replaced it got E1 code have replaced all sensors and new motor still E1 code anyone help
You ever get this figured out. I'm having the same issue
After all your work is complete, whatever you have done and whatever the problem may be, perform a factory rebooting. I don't know but it may be similar to a vehicles check engine light in that it comes on, you and your mechanic fix the car and all its problems but the check engine light may stay on UNTIL it gets reset. Could be a similar situation w/the dryer.
Can we get a parts list to go along with the schmatic?
Your instructions helped me figure this out. Thanks for helping save the money I would have spent on a new dryer!
Sorry it's a thermister code. Check your wiring continuity to and from it. Could be a bad part.
Replaced it twice still e1
E1 can mean thermistor, but can also mean you didn't reconnect the 8-pin plastic connector/wire harness (not the ribbon cables) to the control panel that runs from front (where ribbon cables connect to it) to back (where power supply comes in) along the left side of the machine. Between the power supply cables, the ribbon cables, and the front panel and back cover, there's a lot of tension on the metal cover for this electronic panel. When removing it, the electronic connections can disconnect before you get a chance to do it, and you might not notice the wire harness w/8-pin connector coming up from the front left of the unit. Fail to reconnect it and you'll still get an E1 error, but the thermistor (especially if you've already replaced it) isn't likely the problem.
BTW, you can replace the thermistor without removing anything more than the lower front cover. It's fairly accessible right behind the lint trap to blower cover. Please, please, please turn off circuit breaker and unplug the unit first.
I replaced the rollers on my HE4. Not a difficult repair at all but it did require a bit of teardown of the machine. I buttoned everything up i it was as smooth as the day we bought it. I started a load in the dryer and went to get a beer to congratulate myself. Not two mins into the cycle....E1 error code. I remember changing the coil and thermistor last year. I was !#^&@@. Fearing that I was going to have to tear this thing down again AND break out the multimeter, i decided to look it up here. Five screws later and there was the 8 pin connector...hanging loose. Buttoned her back up and it's running like a charm.
@kelvinlewis1 Same thing happened to me. Was getting the e1 code. Changed the thermistor and nothing changed. Was so defeated. Then googled and say this post…..and boooyah!!! That darn connector is so easy to miss!
Thank you so very much!

I have the same problem after changing my electronic control board that I purchased from amazon. initial problem the unit would not heat up no flame or igniter glowing. after checking all items like thermal fuse and thermistor, gas coils i found heater relay not closing on electronic control. numbers all match up thinking my new electronic control may be bad.

Check the heat exhaust for lint clogs and the outdoor lint screen on the side of the house or what have you. Mine hadn’t been unclogged when I replaced the thermistor and burned out the new one. Use a vacuum and screw driver or hanger to get everything unclogged. Just a warning, be prepared for an animal to be caught in the outside part of the vent 0.o
