Ex51 Drive motor failure Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the drive motor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the main electronic control board. If the problem continues, replace the drive motor.
Drive motor, main electronic control board, wiring harness
Ex52 Drive motor thermal cut-out tripped The thermal cutout trips when the drive motor overheats. Overloading the dryer can cause the motor to overheat. Remove some of the load if too large or heavy. Allow the motor time to cool off and restart the dryer. If the dryer isn’t overloaded, unplug the dryer and remove the load. Spin the drum by hand to check for drive system friction. If you detect excessive friction, check all drive components and replace any damaged parts.

Ex54 Jammed drive motor Overloading can prevent the motor from running. Remove some of the load if too large or heavy. If the dryer isn’t overloaded, unplug it and remove the load. Spin the drum by hand to check for drive system friction. If you detect excessive friction, check all drive components and replace any damaged parts.
Drive system components
E57 or E58 Inverter board is drawing excessive current The inverter board supplies run voltage to the drive motor. Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the inverter board and the drive motor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the drive motor.
Drive motor, wiring harness
E59 No drive motor tachometer signal The inverter board supplies run voltage to the drive motor. Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the inverter board and the drive motor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the drive motor because the tachometer is a component of the drive motor and isn't available as a separate part.
Drive motor, wiring harness
E5A Overheated inverter board This error can be caused by continuous dryer operation in hot ambient conditions. Allow the dryer to cool and then try to restart the dryer. If the code appears under normal operation and conditions, unplug the dryer and replace the inverter board.
Inverter board
E5H Motor voltage is too low (below 100 volts) Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the drive motor and inverter board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire connections are okay, replace the inverter board.
Inverter board, wiring harness
E5C Voltage supply is too high (above 240 volts) Unplug the dryer and check the voltage supply using a multimeter. Supply voltage shouldn't exceed 240 volts. Contact your electric company is supply voltage is too high. If supply voltage is okay, you’ll usually need to replace the inverter board.
Inverter board
E5d or E5E Communication error between the inverter board and the main electronic control board Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the inverter board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. A faulty line filter can also cause this error code. The line filter eliminates interference from the power supply. Check the wire harness connections between the line filter and the main electronic control board. If all wiring connections are okay, you may need to replace the line filter, main electronic control board or the inverter board.

Ex62 Shorted compressor Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main control board and compressor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness connections are okay, you'll probably need to have the compressor replaced. A service technician should do this repair because it involves recovering and recharging refrigerant in the sealed refrigerant system.
Compressor, wire harness
Ex63 Compressor not operating Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main control board and compressor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness connections are okay, you'll probably need to have the compressor replaced. A service technician should do this repair because it involves recovering and recharging refrigerant in the sealed refrigerant system.
Compressor, wire harness
Ex64 Compressor sensor circuit failure Unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections between the main control board and compressor. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness connections are okay, you'll probably need to replace the main electronic control board.
Main electronic control board, wire harness
Ex71 Temperature sensor failure Unplug the dryer and measure the resistance of the temperature sensor using a multimeter. You should measure about 5,000 ohms of resistance at 77 degrees. If not then replace the temperature sensor because it's defective. If resistance is okay, check the wire harness connections between the temperature sensor and the main electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wire harness connections are okay then you'll usually need to replace the main electronic control board.
