DIY advice

tE

Defective thermistor (temperature sensor)

Check/Repair

Clean the lint filter because a clogged lint filter can cause this code. Check the exhaust vent system for a clog or restriction and clean system if blocked. If the lint filter and exhaust vent system are clear, unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the thermistor and the electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, measure the thermistor resistance using a multimeter. You should measure around 10,000 ohms of resistance at room temperature. Replace the thermistor if resistance is off. If thermistor resistance is okay and the wire harness is intact, replace the electronic control board.

Possible parts

Thermistor, wire harness, electronic control board

dE or dF

Door switch failure

Check/Repair

If you’re attempting to start the dryer with the door open, close the door. If the door is closed when the code appears, unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the door switch and the electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness is okay, replace the door switch.

Possible parts

Door switch, wire harness

Check/Repair

Press all the buttons on the control panel to free the stuck button. If the stuck button can’t be freed, replace the user interface control.

9E1

Electronic control board error (over voltage)

Possible parts

Electronic control board

Electronic control board error (communication problem)

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections on the electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the electronic control board.

HE

Heating error (gas and electric dryers)

Check/Repair

For gas dryers, make sure the gas supply cut-off valve for the dryer is fully open. If it’s an electric dryer, see if a house circuit breaker for the dryer is tripped; the dryer won’t heat if a leg of the 240-volt power supply is off. Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the electronic control board and the heater. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. For an electric dryer, check the heating element for damage and replace if broken. For a gas dryer, have a technician check and repair the heating system.

Possible parts

Wire harness, heating element
