Amana dryer ts error code

The “TS” or “tS” means there is a heating problem, such as:

  • Shorted thermistor
  • Low resistance in the thermistor
  • Clogged lint screen
  • Blocked vent system

Using a ohmmeter, check the resistance at the thermistor: it should be 10,000 ohms at room temperature and pay attention to diagnostic code 1. It is advisable to measure continuity at the PCB connection, because thus you will test the entire circuit, which includes the wiring and whatever there is at the white connector (pin#2(blue) and pin#6(red)). If the continuity does not exceed the range, the control board is faulty and needs to be replaced.

The “hE” fault code indicates a heating problem: the drier is not heating well or not heating at all. Most likely, there is an issue in the vent. Remove the vent and see if the error code appears again. If it does not, clean the vent and put it back in its place.

If the error persists even with the vent disconnected, you may need to disassemble it and check all thermostats at the vents for continuity. Use a multimeter. Test each one separately and replace the faulty one(s), which do not show any continuity. If all the thermostats are ok, there is a problem in the thermistor.

The “e5” error code signals that the thermistor on the blower wheel housing has shorted and cannot be repaired. Also, the problem may occur due to damaged wiring. Take the device apart to get to the thermistor. Check the wiring. If all wires are intact, check the thermistor for continuity using a multimeter. If it reads 10k ohms at room temperature, it is ok. If not, replace the thermistor. If the thermistor reads well, the main control board needs to be replaced, which will cost you more than a new thermistor.
