Motor stopped or not starting

Check/Repair

Overloading can overheat the drive motor, causing a tripped thermal protector. Reduce the load and allow the motor to cool off for 30 minutes before restarting the dryer. If the dryer won’t restart, remove the load from the dryer and see if the drum turns freely by hand. If not, unplug the dryer and examine the drive system. Replace any damaged drive components. Check the motor wire harness. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the drive system and wire harness are okay, then you may need to replace the drive motor.

E71 or E72

Outlet thermistor failure

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the outlet thermistor (temperature sensor) wire harness connections. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness is okay, check the resistance of the outlet thermistor using a multimeter. You should measure around 5,000 ohms of resistance at room temperature of 70 degrees. Replace the outlet thermistor if resistance is off.

Possible parts

Outlet thermistor, Wire harness

E73

Inlet thermistor failure

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the inlet thermistor (temperature sensor) wire harness connections. Reconnect any loose wires. Replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness is okay, check the resistance of the inlet thermistor using a multimeter. You should measure around 50,000 ohms of resistance at room temperature of 70 degrees. Replace the inlet thermistor if resistance is off.

Possible parts

Inlet thermistor, Wire harness

E74

Drive motor relay failure

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the drive motor wire harness. Reconnect any loose wires. Replace the drive motor wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness is okay, replace the electronic control board because the motor relay on the electronic control board is defective.
