We have an Kenmore Elite Dryer(model#11070072191) That will not accept commands and gives us an E1 error code. Also if it does run it constntly beeps. Any sugesstion to fix this problem would be appreciated.

Sorry, the S ears parts web site took me to a listing for a dryer model 110.7007210 when I entered your model. It doesn't appear to have a listing for your model for us to see how it was actually designed.

"E1" on electronically controlled Kenmore dryers indicates the control thermister is open (defective) and needs to be replaced. It could possibly just be caused by a loose wiring connection to it but a thermistor failure is much more likely.

You can see the thermistor which is mounted on the dryer blower housing of the dryer at the following link:

I did finally find a listing for a Kenmore dryer model 110.70072991 (note the 99). Please double check your information.

E1 on that model does indicate a failed thermistor as well and does use same thermistor as was linked to above:

- Kenmore 110.70072991 Dryer Thermistor


The dryer will not run without an operational thermistor circuit, as a safety precaution. One (or more) beeps will usually occur to indicate a problem that needs to be tended to.
