My Kenmore HE2 dryer frequently stops and displays the code "PF" but with no power failure.

My Sears Kenmore HE2 dryer (Model 110.87562601) has not been working properly ever since I acquired it with the home I purchased in November 2009. The original owner of the dryer purchased it in September 2007. The dryer frequently stops and displays the code message "PF" which stands for "power failure". This often happens several times during a drying cycle, which means I must constantly return to the dryer to press the power button and then the start button to restart the dryer. The "PF" message occurs without a power failure in the home, as evidenced by other appliances working properly. A licensed electrician tested the outlet in the spring of 2010 to verify that it is working and is providing the proper power to the dryer. The only way I can assure that the dryer will run the full cycle is to place it on extra-low heat on a timed cycle instead of automatic. This increases the drying time significantly. How can I fix this problem? Thanks for your help!

No it's probably an EXCELLANT piece of machinery! Just need a skilled repairman to take a look at it! It's probably the thermister , located in bottom section of dryer on the heat vent metal cylinder shape tin duct, it's where the red & black wires are not blue & blue wires , try that , first & foremost unplug dryer before working on it or taking it apart. Test out the thermister with a meter ohms as well as conductive
