Hi, unfortunately this is a common issue on these units. The error code indicates a shorted control board. You can try to unplug the dryer for 2-3 minutes but I doubt it will reset it. 99% of the time the control board on the top left of the dryer needs to be replaced. If you're handy, you can make this repair. Let me know if you want the part number for the board. It's roughly $150.I work on the honor system here at Just Answers.
