Hello,

Actually, it does run for a split second then shuts off with PF (Power Failure) on the display. I've taken the unit apart, cleaned everything, the vent is only 3' long and goes directly outside. The model # is gleq2152eso, I've retrieved code(s) but E9E is the prevailing one I'd say and isn't on the TS list. I've done my reading and everything points toward the thermistor which reads 45.6 ohms, wires to the panel or the panel itself...the wiring looks good going to the panel. I'm hoping that there's some other issue that I can check. Partly due to the panels cost of $177 and the fact that it's out of stock on the Repair Clinic site!  :dry:

Thanks, KC

The error code E9E indicates that low voltage is being detected at the control board of the dryer.
This could be caused by the following:

1) The electrical power supply to the dryer is bad. Check the dryer outlet for proper voltage.

2) Unplug the dryer and check the wiring of the dryer outlet plug. A loose wire on the terminal block could cause this problem.

3) If you are able to safely access the control board in the console, check the red wire that connects to the heater relay on the board. (NOTE: The dryer should always be unplugged when accessing internal components.) A loose wire or burned connection in this area could result in this error code.

4) A failed control board could cause this problem.

5) Make sure all connections have been checked throughly before replacing the board,

Thanks very much for the replies, I should have mentioned in my first post that I metered the voltage to the 220 outlet and it's fine. As far as the link to the panel goes, I had found that already but as I mentioned earlier, it's out of stock on the Repair Clinic site...

I did find the red wire scorched at the panel connection. With this in mind, there was the smell of wire burning when I noticed that it had stopped in mid cycle, that's when I unplugged the machine. Will this confirm the need for replacing the panel, or is there a part of it that I can change out? What would have caused this part to burn? It worries me because I have been known to stick a load in it and run out the door!

need to also measure for 120 between each Line and Neutral at the Outlet
and at the Dryer Terminal Strip
 

... I did find the red wire scorched at the panel connection.

at the Dryer Terminal Power Strip ?
may have been from bad / loose / connection...
that may be your "low voltage detected" problem

The outlet reads 120.8/120.8/241.6 and the scorched wire is at the terminal on the circuit board.

Nice picture

heat / melted, looks like from bad / corroded connection,

either on the Controller, and / or on the wire terminal.

Probably won't be able to clean that connector good enough..

May or may not be able to clean the wire connector.

May have to replace the Controller,

AND the Terminal on the Wire.

Thanks! This is what I'm thinking but should I try cleaning these contacts? Maybe a little dielectric grease on there? Or should I even try, considering the fire hazard? I have 14ga wire and can replace the burnt wire myself unless you see an issue with that as well.

you could try ..

OR possibly replacing the Terminal on the Board (soldering)

OR, possibly solder an extension "jumper" wire, w/Terminal, directly to the Board

Thanks heaps for the speedy responses! I've taken the circuit board out of it's housing and I'll consider that but I think it may be a little beyond my capability!  :kopkrab:

So, you think the cause was just poor contact at that terminal? Also, I've found a re-manuf. panel, would you trust that? It'll save me about 40 bucks from the least expensive new one I've found.

Provided the terminal block at the rear of the dryer and power cord are not damaged, could be a bad neutral at the circuit breaker.

Remember when I said "...but I think it may be a little beyond my capability!   :kopkrab:..."

Never mind, I shouldn't ever underestimate my talents lol!! I took another look at the relay and there's only 4 pins so, while I'm not an expert here, I do  have some tools and a little mechanical inclination.

Solder iron fired up and relay removed...

photobucket-6605-1374267122443_zpsa838f7

A quick search for "Potter and Brumfield part# T9AS1D22-12" pulled up several results of the part, ordered thru Newark

http://www.newark.co...537483461|plid|

and the shipping was 3.78 times the cost of the (damn) part...which was....... $3.78.....I thought that was ironic.

Anyway, I'll post results when I solder the relay in and stuff all the parts back into what was my dryer...

Just wanted to drop a post by y'all and thank you for your help. I soldered in the new start relay, repaired the wiring, put everything back together and "voila" I'm back in business!
