Jon : Hello again.
Jon : The he error code for your dryer is just a temp error. It thinks the dryer is not heating properly
Jon : Usually it is just the thermistor in the dryer that needs to be replaced. Quick cheap fix.
My wife thinks the same,,she hates the dryer and says it also has a moldy smell
Where is the thermistor located?
Jon : Give me about an hour to look up the parts info. I'll get back to you here with it so you can order it. Then I'll get you the steps to install it yourself. All so you can save a lot of money rather then having a repair company do it for you.
Jon : The thermistor is in the front if the drum. But I will look up the driahtams for your model and get back to you for sure.
ok thank you, XXXXX XXXXX work soon and will check back later tonight
Jon : My kid woke up crying so I have to get back to you in about an hour. Sorry.

Jon : now let m get you the steps you need to gt to the thermistor.
ok i am waiting
Jon : Sorry
Jon : frst you need to unplug the machine.
Jon : then you need to pull the dryer out a bit from the wall to access the screws onthe top of the back panel
Jon : Sorry
Jon : forSorry for this dryer you don't need to access theback you can remove the front panel.
Jon : to do this you will need a putty knife
Jon : stick the putty knife inbetween the top and front panels of the dryer. And feel for the clips that need to be pushed in.
Jon : there are two clips, one on either side of the front panel that hold the top and the front panel together. The clips are about 3-6 inches I from either side of the front panel.
Jon : so stick the putty knife in and slide it towards the middle of the dryer starting at one corner.you should feel the clips.
Jon : when you hit the clip remove the putty knife and push it into the clip front the front. You will be depressing the clip in and will have to pull the top of the dryer up at the same time. Once both clips are pushed in you can easily remove the top panel and fold it back towards theback of the dryer.
Jon : with the top panel folded or hinged back you will see the two screws holding the front panel to the side of the dryer cabinet. Remove this se screws then openthe door and remove the two screws onthe front frame of the panel. The door and entire front panel will come off.
Jon : with the door and front panel off you will see the drum and the lint screen inThe bottom middle of the cabinet. Just behind that lint screen onthe blower housing you will see two thermostats. The more oven looking thermostat is the thermistor.
Jon : Just remove the screw holding the thermistor to the blower housing and replace with the new one.
Jon : then close the whole thing up going in reverse order.
Jon : let me see if I have a video I can show you.
Jon : Cant find the video link right now. I'll keep checking if you need me to but may have to wait until the morning. Please let me know if you have any troubles getting to the thermistor and ill help more.
