It sounds like you have definitely determined the vent through your house is not a problem which is great because that's the first thing to check. But that crushed vent could have caused back up inside the dryer. You'll need to take the dryer apart and make sure the vents inside the dryer are not blocked especially the area under the lint filter. If that all checks good, then you either have a bad control board or you have a bad thermistor sensor which is what checks the temperature of the dryer and gives a signal to the board to tell you if there is a clogged vent. If you have a multimeter you can remove the thermistor and test resistance and it should be about 10,000 ohms at room temperature if it's good. If not, then replace it. If it checks good, then replace your main control board. To look up any parts, you'll need the full model number which is located on a sticker just inside the door way.

Yeah, it sounds like your thermistor is working correctly. Possibly you have a newer model with a different thermistor. Either way, if the vent isn't clogged and the thermistor checks good, your control board is just bad and unfortunately the control board would need to be replaced. The only other option would be the wires between the board and thermistor if you wanted to trace them back between the board and thermistor to make sure they aren't damaged.
ok good luck again.
I'm not sure what else could cause this problem so I'm going to opt out and if someone else has an idea they will reply.
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am APPLIANCE-HVAC GURU one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please allow time for me to respond, sometimes I get the questions or responses late so please be patient as I have no control over the site issues. NOTE, I have nothing to do with your payment to the site and did not receive that money. The only way to credit me(APPLIANCE-HVAC GURU) is to make sure you are rating my post not another techs when finished...Thank You!
Can you get me the complete model number off the unit?
Ok do this
Press and hold the “cancel” and “start pause” buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to show the last error code recorded. The error code will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers. NOTE: E00 means no failure code experienced. Let me know what code comes up/
The CE code is a communication code between the user interface and control board. Normally when you get this code there is an issue with the control board on the unit. The interface boards do go bad as well but the board is more common, basically they are not communicating as there is a primary hardware failure on one of them. There is no 100% test to do, to determine which one so I would order the parts from Repairclinic.com as you have a 1 year full return policy if any issues on any part installed or not. The main control is part #809160310 and the interface is part #137237100, if you have noticed an issue with the knob or buttons not working all the time then I would lean towards a bad interface.
