I have been getting constant E1 codes on my Whirlpool GEW9200LW1 dryer. I have verified the vent is clear. I checked the thermister and ohms look good. The only way the dryer will run is in the timed cycle at low heat. At medium and high heat settings the dryer will shut down after 5 min. Same situation in automatic cycle. I noticed that the dryer is extreamly hot inside after it shuts down.
What else could cause the E1 code? Any help would be appreciated.

The thermistor is directly related to E1 error code. There are different resistance levels at different temperatures. I would try this thermistor test and more than likely I would replace the thermistor
The machine control electronics monitors the
exhaust temperature using the thermistor, and
cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain
the desired temperature.
Begin with an empty dryer and a clean lint
screen.
1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
2. Set the following configuration:
➔ Door – must be firmly closed
➔ Press Control On
➔ Press End Of Cycle Signal (Louder)
➔ Press Start
3. If after 60 seconds, E1 or E2 flashes in the
display and the dryer shuts off, the thermistor
or wire harness is either shorted or open.
➔ Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
➔ Check wire connections at the machine
control electronics and thermistor. See
Accessing & Removing the Electronic
Assemblies, page 7, and figure 8 for
thermistor location.
➔ If wire connections are good, remove the
two wires from the thermistor and replace
the thermistor

Just because the thermistor checks good @ room temp doesnt. Mean it stays within tolerance as it heats up...
replace it.
