Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,
Ok, let's take a look at this;



You're Thermistor is open and Failing, you will need to replace it, what is the model number and I will see if I can get you a part number.



I have copied this from the manual


Thermistor Failure


The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.


You will most likely need to change the thermostat
