Error Code

Condition

DIY advice

EH1, EH2 or EH3

Voltage supply problem

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and measure the voltage supply at the wall outlet using a multimeter. If the voltage isn’t between 208 and 240 VAC, have an electrician repair the problem.

Possible parts

Ex21 or Ex22

Condensate drain pump failure

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness between the condensate drain pump and the main electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness connections are okay, check the pump and drain hose for a clog or restriction. If the drain path is clear, replace the condensate drain pump. If the problem continues, replace the main electronic control board.

Possible parts

Condensate drain pump, Main electronic control board, Wire harness

Ex31 or Ex32

Humidity sensor failure

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness between the humidity sensor and the main electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check the humidity sensor and replace it if damaged. If the wire harness connections and humidity sensor are okay, replace the main electronic control board.

Possible parts

Humidity sensor, Main electronic control board

Ex45

Door open

Check/Repair

The main electronic control board detects whether the door is open. Close the door if it’s open. If the door is closed, unplug the dryer and check the wire harness between the door switch and the main electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the door switch. If the problem continues, replace the main electronic control board.

Possible parts

Door switch, Main electronic control board, Wire harness

Ex51

Drive motor failure

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the drive motor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the main electronic control board. If the problem continues, replace the drive motor.

Possible parts

Drive motor, Main electronic control board, Wiring harness

Ex52

Drive motor thermal cut-out tripped

Check/Repair

The thermal cutout trips when the drive motor overheats. Overloading the dryer can cause the motor to overheat. Remove some of the load if too large or heavy. Allow the motor time to cool off and restart the dryer. If the dryer isn’t overloaded, unplug the dryer and remove the load. Spin the drum by hand to check for drive system friction. If you detect excessive friction, check all drive components and replace any damaged parts.

Possible parts

Drive system components

EX53

Motor sensing circuit error

Check/Repair

The main electronic control board detects an internal error in its motor circuit. Unplug the dryer and replace the main control board.

Possible parts

Main electronic control board

Ex54

Jammed drive motor

Check/Repair

Overloading can prevent the motor from running. Remove some of the load if too large or heavy. If the dryer isn’t overloaded, unplug it and remove the load. Spin the drum by hand to check for drive system friction. If you detect excessive friction, check all drive components and replace any damaged parts.

Possible parts

Drive system components

E57 or E58

Inverter board is drawing excessive current

Check/Repair

The inverter board supplies run voltage to the drive motor. Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the inverter board and the drive motor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the drive motor.

Possible parts

Drive motor, Wiring harness

E59

No drive motor tachometer signal

Check/Repair

The inverter board supplies run voltage to the drive motor. Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the inverter board and the drive motor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the drive motor because the tachometer is a component of the drive motor and isn’t available as a separate part.

Possible parts

Drive motor, Wiring harness

E5A

Overheated inverter board

Check/Repair

This error can be caused by continuous dryer operation in hot ambient conditions. Allow the dryer to cool and then try to restart the dryer. If the code appears under normal operation and conditions, unplug the dryer and replace the inverter board.

Possible parts

Inverter board

E5H

Motor voltage is too low (below 100 volts)

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the drive motor and inverter board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the inverter board.

Possible parts

Inverter board, Wiring harness

E5C

Voltage supply is too high (above 240 volts)

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the voltage supply using a multimeter. Supply voltage shouldn’t exceed 240 volts. Contact your electric company is supply voltage is too high. If supply voltage is okay, you’ll usually need to replace the inverter board.

Possible parts

Inverter board

E5d or E5E

Communication error between the inverter board and the main electronic control board

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the inverter board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. A faulty line filter can also cause this error code. The line filter eliminates interference from the power supply. Check the wire harness connections between the line filter and the main electronic control board. If all wiring connections are okay, you may need to replace the line filter, main electronic control board or the inverter board.

Possible parts

Wiring harness, Line filter, Inverter board, Main electronic control board

E5F

Inverter board failed to start the drive motor

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between main control board and the inverter board. Reconnect any loose wires and replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the inverter board. If the problem continues, replace the main electronic control board.

Possible parts

Wiring harness, Motor inverter board, Main electronic control board

Ex62

Shorted compressor

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main control board and compressor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness connections are okay, you’ll probably need to have the compressor replaced. A service technician should do this repair because it involves recovering and recharging refrigerant in the sealed refrigerant system.

Possible parts

Compressor, Wire harness

Ex63

Compressor not operating

Check/Repair

Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main control board and compressor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged.
