The Duet manual referenced below will help you with diagnostics.

It is not an error code but a project ID code and it appears when the Start button is pressed during the Diagnostic Mode. Redo the activation of the Diagnostic Mode then do not touch any button after "88" is displayed. Error codes will be displayed if there's any.
The Diagnostic Mode cannot be used to test a fault in the heating circuit when the dryer does not heat up. Actual test of the heating circuit components such as continuity testing or resistance reading is necessary to determine fault. Disconnect power then remove the front bottom panel to access the heater housing. Once the panel is off, test the continuity of the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat. You can simply bypass them if you have no tool for testing continuity. Join the wires of each together and insulate them properly then plug in and start the dryer. Replace both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. If not, take the heating element out and closely inspect it for any broken coil. Replace the heating element if it has broken coil part. Never attempt to repair the heating element, you have to replace it.
