This means 'Power 'Failure'.
This could be from the circuit breaker being tripped and then was reset, wall outlet issue, or possibly if the cord was replaced then the screws conecting the wires to dryer may not be tight. Make sure dryer in unplugged before checking connections.
Some homes have an energy management system where higher energy use appliances are given a priorty so they all cannot run at same time so keeps your electric bill lower.
For example, the water heater and a/c system would be wired to override the dryer so if both these were runnng and then you turned on the dryer, the control unit would shut power down to dryer within a short time.
Hope this helps.
Does it shut down completely? If it does, and the timer ceases turning, your problem may be a blocked vent pipe or Lint buildup.Your high limit switch is designed to kill power to your heater coils and sometimes the motor in case of overheat.
You have 3 thermostats. By the description of the problem it sounds like it needs a new high limit thermostat. All 3 thermostats and the heating coil can be checked with an ohm meter. Also check the ground on the heating coil. It could be grounding it's self out.
