F1 is a very straight forward error for these dryers. It means that your main relay power control board mounted to the left side wall above the dryer drum has an internal short. Try to unplug the dryer for 60 seconds and see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work, you'll need to order and replace the control board to resolve the issue. You'll need the full model number located on a sticker just inside the door way to order the correct part but below is a video that shows you the process if you wanted to do it yourself. The board is usually about $200-250 I'll warn you in advance.
