Ok That works!

READING ERROR CODES

1. Non-Digital Readout Display Models: Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position. Digital Readout Display Models: Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise (3) settings from the Normal cycle option.

2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.

3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.

Non-Digital Readout Display Models:

rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position. The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid (Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.

Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash.

Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time.

The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code. NOTE: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine. A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15 Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10.

If this code would appear on a washer in the Non-Digital Readout Display Models, the four indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times.

Count the blinks and let me know so I can give you the error code meaning .

E5B, E9E, and E4A
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok The E5B is a heater fault (no Heating)

E9E is not show on that models tech sheet .

E4A program time out fault .

And if the unit is not heating the you can get both the E9E and the E4A codes.

I would test the heating element to see if it has continuity or not to see if it is good.
