L2 means that your dryer thinks it's only getting 110 volts instead of 220 volts. First, flip your breaker off to the dryer and then back on to see if that reset the issue. If not, pull the dryer forward and remove the back access panel where the power cord connect to the back of the dryer itself. Make sure none of the wires going to the terminal block where the power cord connects are shorted or burnt out. Now if all that checks good, you need a multimeter to test power between the 2 outside power wires. You should have 220 volts between the 2 outside power wires on the power cord coming from your house. If you do, the main board inside the dryer has just failed and would need to be replaced.
