Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one who will assist you today. This error is actually the thermistor code.
Display Fault/Error Codes
Display Description Trigger Action Taken
tS Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed The Thermistor resistance is very low. Check for:
- Clogged lint screen.
- Restricted vent system.
- Check Thermistor resistance.
- Check for diagnostic code 1
Also if you want to test your thermistor even though I know this is the problem it can be tested this way.
Here is a video on how to replace it and I can also provide the service manual if you would like
So are you saying you have already replaced the thermistor and it did not solve the problem? Just so we are on the same page.
I just got on if you give me a few mins. I can call.
I do apologize about the delay if you would like I can call. I do have a question first. Did you try unplugging the dryer at all. If you have not lets try unplugging it for a few mins. and then plug it back in and lets see what happens.
What I am thinking is that it just needs reset since you have already replaced what needed replaced. So lets try and figure out together how to reset the dryer.
Let me see if I can find if here is a special reset for your dryer. Bare with me one more moment.
Clearing Diagnostic Codes
To clear the diagnostic code list press the
keypads together for 3 seconds while
viewing the list. The cycle count for each diagnostic
code will be reset to 0, but not the machine cycle
This should clear your code. Please do let me know if this works .
Are you still with me?
Just trying to see if that worked or not?
the sensor sends a signal back to the control by way of resistance. So, either the signal it is sending is bad or the control is unable to interpret it. If the sensor is new, there is an issue with the wiring between the sensor and the control or the control is faulty. The key is to measure the resistance of that sensor at the control so it reads through the wiring harness. If it tests good at the control, then the issue is with the control.
give me just moment and I will shoot you a link.
Its part number 3 in this diagram and here is the link for the part you will need to order.
