This error code you're getting means that your dryer thinks the thermistor sensor has failed or is out of range. You'll need to take the dryer completely apart to access the thermistor sensor which is mounted to the vent below the drum. Below is a link to the part you need to order and replace and there is a video at the bottom that shows you how to replace it yourself if you wanted to replace it. Also, if you have a multimeter you can check resistance of the sensor to confirm it's out of range. It should read about 10k ohms at room temperature. If you don't have a multimeter just replace it because the only other open would be a bad main control board if the wires between the sensor and board aren't damaged.
