It can be upsetting when our appliances do not work properly. One place I always check for the error code meaning is the owner's manual. I attached the link for your dryer below. I also found a similar question and added the link to the expert post. This may help while you wait for the expert answer.

On something like this you will need the test mode set up instructions & error code list in order to know the correct failure codes & type of action to take. Please see the image provided for the test mode instructions & error code list. Once we know the error code we will have a direction to head into. I suspect a thermister or wiring problem with this type of symptom. Be sure to

disconnect power

before attempting to remove panels or service the unit.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Thanks, Dave.. Solved the problem. The L2 at the buss connection was corroded. Consequently, voltage under dropped. I installed a new 30 amp breaker pair into an open panel slot to support the dryer load and that put it right.
