Found error code list on internet. stated that the 7E code was a faulty Thermistor or a few other possibilities. also found instructions to test Thermistor and clear error code. unplugged dryer plug to reset error. removed panel to access thermistor on blower duct, started dryer and ran until 7E error reappeared. removed one wire from thermister and using a volt/ohm meter. checked the resistence through the two post of thermister.
should read between 100-50 ohm. 100ohm=room temp and 50ohm=180 degree F (approx) replaced with new Thermister and problem solved.
