(Note)b means flat, not sharp. And yes, there is a B# (sharp), but not in common terminology.

There's more than one diminished scale. That's the whole-half diminished.

E WH is E - F# - G - A - Bb - C - Db - D#.

OP..

WH dim: 1 - 2 - b3 - 4 - b5 - b6 - bb7 - 7
HW dim: 1 - b2 - #2 - 3 - #4 - 5 - 6 - b7

Bb means the "same" thing as A#. A (Note)# is enharmonic (sounds the same) as the next Note flattened.

Edit - So basically:

A - A#/Bb - B - C - C#/Db - D - D#/Eb - E - F - F#/Gb - G - G#/Ab

Those are the notes in basic terminology. As you get a bit further into theory, you get into double sharps and double flats and when to use which.

E WH is E - F# - G - A - Bb - C - Db - D#.

OP..

WH dim: 1 - 2 - b3 - 4 - b5 - b6 - bb7 - 7
HW dim: 1 - b2 - #2 - 3 - #4 - 5 - 6 - b7


But, if you take the formula this dude gave:

W-H-W-H-W-H-W-H


Then, apply that to E

E F# G A Bb C Db Eb
 W  H W H  W H  W


Oh, sorry. =D
