    I have already replaced the thermistor Why am I still getting an E5 error

  • Kevin Lang Jul 31, 2011

    cleaned vent and replaced thermistor and still getting t3 error code

  • Kevin Lang Jul 31, 2011

    I have done everything you have suggested but the dryer will not run at all. If it is the control panel what part would I need to order? Thanks for our help.

  • Kevin Lang Aug 01, 2011

    Hi Macmanus, I am sorry for the confusion , I assumed that the dryer would not work, when it gives you an error code. Let me fill you in from the beginning, first we got a HE error code and the dryer would not run, after trying to turn it off and on we got the T5 code and the dryer would not run. I have replaced the thermistor and I still get the error T5 code. Is there a chance it could be the thermistat or a thermal fuse or do you think at this time it is the control panel?

  • Kevin Lang Aug 02, 2011

    Macmarkus, When I turn on the dryer everything looks normal until, you push the comntrol knob to start. The dryer display reads T5 and the machine will not start. I checked the thermistats and they look fine is there anything else to check? Thank you for your patience.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Amana dryer, (as you may or may not know this model is built by Samsung) and it is displaying a e5 error (actually looks like a e5 error, but it is indeed t5 but that's because of the digital display)...it is actually a "temperature sensor" error, hence the "ts".

As described in the service manual from Maytag...

"tS" Dryer Thermistor Short Sensed - The Thermistor resistance is very low.

Check for:

Clogged lint screen. (remove and wash under hot water & mild soap...a old toothbrush works well for scrubbing)

Restricted vent system.
Check Thermistor resistance...10000 ohms @ 77°F/25°C
If you've replaced the thermistor already, that leaves either poor air flow due to clogged lint screen or clogged exhaust somewhere else along the line. Here's what I would suggest you try. Remove the lint filter (clean it as mentioned above) and unfasten the vent from the back/side of the dryer, whatever the case on your machine. Run it through a cycle without a load and post back with the results.

I can send you the service manual if you think it may help you move forward,(It says Maytag, but those are Amana/Samsung as well) but you'd need to provide an email address for me to attach it to. It is a "pdf" and 9.9mb in size.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for replying. I want to make sure I understand what you've done exactly, you said you've changed the thermistor, I get that, but as for cleaning the vent.

    Does that include cleaning the lint screen I alluded to by way of and old toothbrush (something to gently scrub the fine screen) hot water and mild soap ?

    As for the vent being "clean", I don't care about that ("clean" sometimes is irrelevant) Did you run the unit without the lint screen and vent entirely disconnected ?

    I must amphasize how critical it is to do so since I see this overlooked quite often and it can certainly cause the thermistor to be erratic...depending on the size of load, type of material and moisture to extract.

    If this is the case and you've done so. I would suggest you double check that thermistor (even if new) for the ohm reading values it should have.

    You'll need an ohm meter obviously and to check the values make sure at least one wire is removed for a true reading, which is approx.10K @ around room temp.

    If all these things check ok then you're looking at a faulty control which is giving the false reading...not the thermistor and air flow.

    Also to be clear, the thermistor you intsalled was #35001191 and looked like this right ?


    I'll watcxh for your reply and try and help you moving forward in any manner I can. Good luck.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

    Hi,



    From this side of your post it's obvious 2 experts are involved here, myself and one other. While I accept one getting as much info as possible to find a solution, it also leads to confusion in my experience. Since I cannot see any of the other dialog I do not know who you are replying to,myself or them. To this point there was never any mention the unit wouldn't operate...just the fact of the error and you had replaced the thermistor. If I knew the unit was not even operating I would not have suggested almost all of what I said...especially about running a cycle. Removing a lint screen, vent etc. Is not going to make it run. If you are indeed replying to me going forward please address your post as such "macmarkus" an then I will know it is for me.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

    Hello again,

    Thank you for replying once again and provided this additional information. Depending on the error codes which are present, that rarely will stop the unit from starting or "attempting" to start...again depending on the error.

    The initial "HE" (or "EH") followed by the tS indicates the issue originated with a heating error hence the "HE".

    With this additional info. I would suggest checking the other thermostat's for continuity before declaring and issue with the controls.


    If these all ohm out according to the given values, then I'd consider moving towards checking the control, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there...if necessary.

    The other thing I should mention just to be sure it isn't overlooked. When you say the unit won't operate. Does this mean the control has a display as per normal yet if you push start nothing happens ?

    If that is indeed the case, make sure the belt is on the drum and motor pulley...and hasn't come off thus preventing the unit from starting by way of the "kill switch" on these units.

    If on the otherhand, there is no display at all that can be related to the failed PCB/control board...again not to get ahead of ourselves. I'll need you to verify these symptoms if present or not.

    I'll watch for your reply once again and good luck.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

Hi
E5 is a thermister failure error which means that the thermister has gone bad and should be replaced. You can check if for continuity if it tests open then replace it else replace the control board. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Thanks for rejecting the solution......anyways as stated earlier if the thermistor is fine then the issue is with the heater relay on the control board that is bad and should be replaced.

  • Daniel Scott
    Daniel Scott Jul 31, 2011

    Please check this diagram....if you have also tested part no 11, 13 (thermostat) , part no 27 (thermistor) and the door switch (part no 19 in this diagram) also tests fine then replace the control board ( manufacturers part no 35001269)

    This is the part that has to be replaced.....control board

The E5 error code is only referenced by a technician. More than likely it refers to a circuit board problem. Only solution is to have it replaced by a technician.

I have an Amana NED7200TW suddenly stopped working. Power is on, panel lights up. replaced the thermistor still will not start. no error codes come up. What else should I look at?


How about the fuse right beside the thermister? Did you maybe remove a wire from it by accident while replacing thermister?

If the element is fine then you have a sensor problem. there are only a few of them. Best just to replace them all. They usually all come in one pack anyway.

Check to see if your thermistor is bad by measure the resistance. It should be 10K Ohms at room temperature.
If it's bad, replace it BUT you have to CLEAR to error code.
1. Enter to Service Mode by press CHIME and TEMPERATURE keys for 3 seconds or until 3 beeps are heard.
2. Access Diagnostic Codes by pressing WRINKLE PREVENT. A d will be displayed. Rotate the CYCLE SELECTOR KNOB in either direction to read it.
3. Press SENSOR DRY and TIME keys for 3 seconds to clear it.
4. Power OFF to exit Service Mode

Dryer will not start get an error code that looks like a t5.


It is actually error code "tS" which stands for thermistor shorted. The control interprets it as an extremely low resistance which is a result of a the dryer overheating. Locate the thermistor on the blower housing and replace it. Click on the link below and refer to the parts diagram then look for item number 27(thermistor).

I get hE code....after the dryer has been on for a few minutes? is it the thermistor or the coil? if it is the thermistor where is it in the machine?


HE is abbreviated as Heater Error. It could also mean you have a Restricted vent or your thermistor is fried that you need to replace thermistor. you can bypass the thermistor for test purposes by taping the wires together. it is located on the blower wheel assembly, this is a fire safety feature and should never be operated in the bypassed mode. Safety First, unplug before opening.

here are some generic pictures of opening a dryer. once it is verified that the thermistor is the problem, Untape the wires and replace them

T5 error code comes in my amana dryer ned 7200tw


That is actually a Ts error.

Thermistor Short Sensed

The Thermistor resistance is very low.
Check for:
- Clogged lint screen.
- Restricted vent system.
- Check Thermistor resistance.

Thermistor is Item #27 HERE
