Were is the Thermistor Located and is there a way to trouble shoot it to see if it is bad? Thank You
Answer It is located on the blower wheel housing assembly. You can test it with a multi-meter, it should read around 10,000 ohms at room temperature.

The dryer runs and heats fine for 5 or 10 minutes, shuts off, and gives a E1 code. Is it the thermistor?
Answer Hello Al,
As per the tech sheet on your model, “E1” flashes if the thermistor is open. Be aware that the circuit in the control can be at fault since it interprets the information sent to it by the thermistor. So, if changing the thermistor does not correct the issue and the wiring is found in good condition, the control 8566150 is suspect.
Control panel lights up and allows me to select cycles and load size, etc. but when I push start it does not run and F01 flashes.
The model number listed is not showing up as a valid model number. If this is on a dryer then the most likely cause for the F1 error code will be the control board for the unit.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN E1 AND F1 CODES ARE FLASHING AND DRYER WON'T RUN.
Answer Hello Laurie. Cycle Control Unit (CCU) Problem. • Verify all connections to and from the CCU. Replace if needed.
My dryer recently stopped heating, although the drum still worked. After reading your posts I purchased a Thermistor from you guys (fast shipping) and just installed it per your video (great tutorial). After 1 minute of running, the E2 Error code appears. Everything I read states that code means you need a new Thermistor? I have checked the connections a number of times on the newly installed part and everything looks great. Any thoughts??
You will want to test the thermistor at the control board connection to make sure that there is proper resistance. The reason to do a the control board would be so that you are testing the wires as well. At 70 degrees the thermistor should read 11.5K to 13.5K ohms. At 80 it would be between 8.5K and 10.5K ohms. Also test the exhaust thermistor as it could be faulty as well. It is possible that the wiring harness could be bad also. If all checks ok then the issue will be in the control board.
