Hey There,
I see you need some information on error codes. While your waiting for an expert response an option you have is going to Sears Home Services and having a technician take a look at your washer. I attached the link below. Hope this helps!!

I could find no specific error code as you describe. I am including a wiring diagram and instructions on how to enter the diagnostic cycle to display any stored error code.

I suspect the problem is with the thermistor but try bringing up the stored error codes and see if the problem doesn't become more noticeable.

If the dryer is running but not heating then the relay on the control or thermistor are the most likely causes.

Try bringing up the error codes first and then proceed. With additional details I can most likely assist you further.
