Question about Whirlpool WGD9200S Gas Dryer
The normal cycle should run 48 minutes, but ends up getting shortened to 22 minutes because the machine determines that the load is dryer than it is. Error code P39. I think it was a power outage, but am not sure. I am going to unplug for a minute and then repower. Otherwise, do I need to run more diagnostics?
It is the moisture sensor system, it is not sensing the wet clothes. Open the door, inside you should see a part with 2 metal bars that is around 3 inches long, clean these bars with a mult purpose cleaner. Sometimes fabric softner sheets and detergent builds up on this so that the machine cannot sense the moisture. Hope this helps.

“E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.
The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
and off to maintain the desired temperature.
1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
the lint screen is clean.
3. Close the dryer door.
4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
shorted or open. Check the wire connections
at the thermistor or the machine
control electronics board. If wiring checks
okay, replace the thermistor.
6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
heat using the More Time or Less Time

SOURCE: Dryer turns off in 10 minutes.
To check the moisture sensors. Make sure the dyer is plugged in and all controls are set to off. Next to get into the diagnostic mode press more time, less time, more time, less time, all within 5 seconds. Now all indecator lights on the console are lit up with 88 in the " time remaining" display, if the test mode has been entered. Now this how to check the moisture sensors. Open the dryer door. You may hear a beep sound and the software revision number will be displayed on the console. If this happens there is a short in the moisture sensor system and the moisture sensors need to be checked and probably replaced. If this doesn`t happen,locate the moisture sensors on the face of the lintscreen housing and lay a wet cloth or towell across them. You should hear a beep and the software number will be diplayed on the console. If this happens then the moisture sensors have past the test and your problem is even deaper into the electronics and may reqiure a technician to trace this problem down.I hope this has helped you.

This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.
