The E1 error code indicates an open thermister.

Do not

attempt to jump across the thermister. The thermister is not a switch it is more like a resistor that reads & responds to temperature & changes value to regulate the heating element.

I have a link for you follow on this same exact symptom. The link will cover access, testing & replacing the thermister in your Kenmore dryer.

Remember to

disconnect power

before attempting access.
