Tami,



I will assume you have a Kenmore model number 110.82826101 electric dryer. The thermistor as discussed above should have a red/white wire and a black wire. I am including the wiring diagram for this model in the image below. This diagram includes the colors. At the thermistor it does not matter which wire goes on which side.



If you still need help with this issue please include more details in a reply to this post. I will be happy to assist you further.

My husband checked the wires and now cannot remember where the black goes and where the white goes. I cannot see from the diagram above because it is in black and white, but if anyone can tell me, that would be great! Thanks, Tami

The E1 error code is a thermistor open error. I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking the wiring connection of the thermistor to the electronic control board. The thermistor attaches to the control board on the P2 connector (red/white and black wires on pins 5 and 6). The image below shows the procedure for accessing the control board in this dryer. If the connection is okay, pull the connector off the control board and check the resistance through the red/white wire and black wire with a volt/ohm meter (with the dryer still unplugged). You should measure about 10K ohms (10,000 ohms) at room temperature. Make sure that your meter is set to the proper range. If you read infinite resistance (open), then you could have a wire harness connection problem between the control board and the thermistor. Check the resistance across the leads of the thermistor (with at least one wire removed from the thermistor). If you measure normal resistance (10K ohms) at the thermistor, then you will need to repair the wiring connection between the control board and the thermistor. If you do not get a reading of about 10 k ohms you need to replace the thermistor.

If you measure the proper resistance through the thermistor circuit at the connection to the control board (red/white wire to black wire on the P2 connector), then the electronic control board is bad and will need to be replaced.

Hello,
I find the best place for an explanation of error codes is the owner's manual. I did not find one for your dryer online. I did find that someone else asked a similar question. Here is what the expert posted. I attached the link below. Hope this helps!
