I am having the same problems with my dryer shutting off and displaying an E1 error code. I have the dryer serviced a couple years ago and was told the dryer is fine but that the room gets too hot and it causes the dryer to throw an E1 code. A service tech I spoke to last week said that the amount of heat in the room should not cause this problem. I currently only dry my clothes at night and have a fan blowing at the dryer to try and keep it cooler but it still throws an E1 code. I don't seem to have this problem as much in the winter as much. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

** my dryer shutting off and displaying an E1 error code. **

That failure code is suppose to indicate a problem in the temperature thermistor (see the following link) but could also be caused by a problem in the wiring to it or in the electronic control it is connected to.

** I have the dryer serviced a couple years ago **

For this exact problem??

** was told the dryer is fine but that the room gets too hot and it causes the dryer to throw an E1 code. **

I can't see how that could cause it. Being in too cold an area can cause the sensing circuit on some model to shut down prematurely but no error message would usually be displayed.

BTW. Is your dryer not properly vented to the outdoors? Otherwise the room shouldn't heat up substantially. Most of the heat generated by a dryer is blown outdoors.

** A service tech I spoke to last week said that the amount of heat in the room should not cause this problem. **

I agree.

Thanks for the feedback, DanO. It's greatly appreciated. It sounds like the thermistor is fairly easy to replace. Is it worth buying the part and doing it myself?

It is usually one of the less difficult repairs to achieve, yes.

That is something you will have to decide. I would imagine service in most areas would run $75-$100+ on top of the part cost. What's your time worth?
