    Default Kenmore Elite HE3 "E1" code

    Model Number: 110.82822101
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hi Jake,
    My usual response to a flashing error code is to call the repair man but I'm going to take a stab a home repair. The dryer may never dry again after I'm through with it. . .

    MOD: 110.82822101
    SER: MM4224495
    TYPE: DADT-ELE-2406028-EL54

    E1 shows up repeatedly frequently and the clothes never seem dry after 1 cycle of drying like before. From reading some on the forum I know this indicates that I need to change the thermistor (what the heck IS a thermistor, and it seems buried deep in the bowels of the dryer. Will I EVER be able to reassemble the dryer after I change the thermi-majiger?!)

    Will you tell me what exact thermistor I need to buy for my dryer and send that fancy instruction manuel for replacing the part?

    Hi Sandra,

    Yes, E1 means:
    Thermistor Failure. You will need to replace this.

    Here's the one for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer part#8577274 is RepairClinic item#1181075

    Unplug your dryer first!

    You would need to take off the lower front access panel under your door, then take off the duct assembly#45, by removing the two #32 screws, and remove the #2 screw at the very bottom of the duct assembly with a bracket#11 attached to it, remove that one also. Then your thermistor is #42 on the blower housing, next to your thermal fuse#59.
