I presume that after it has "cooled" it starts and runs again? If so, the air circulation, perhaps the vent is clogged and needs cleaning. The high heat protection device is "cutting out" when the temperature gets too high to prevent disasters.

It could be a high limit overload, but the cause may be a blocked air vent. You can remove the dryer vent in the back and see if the problem stops, this will tell you if the vent is blocked or not. Ryan

My dryer runs about 30 minutes and then will shut off. After you give it a minute to it will turn back on but when it is in constant use it happens very frequently. It doesn't matter what heat setting it...

sounds like the safety thermostat (Hi Limit Thermostat) is cutting your dryer off. This usually happens because of hi heat (higher than normal) which is caused by clogged exaust.
Check your dryer vent to ensure that is is completly free of lint. Clean the lint from the lint trap all the way to the output of the exaust outside your dwelling, ensuring the dryer has a unobstructed flow of hot air.

The error code E9E indicates that low voltage is being detected at the control board of the dryer.

This could be caused by the following factors:

* The electrical power supply to the dryer is bad. Check the dryer outlet for proper voltage (120 volts AC).

* Unplug the dryer and check the wiring of the dryer outlet plug. A loose wire on the terminal block could cause this problem.

* If you are able to safely access the control board in the console, check the red wire that connects to the heater relay on the board.

(NOTE: The dryer should always be unplugged when accessing internal components.)
A loose wire or burned connection in this area could result in this error code.

* A failed control board could cause this problem.

lets start simple on this,first check your dryer vent for obstructions(mainly lint build up,)also check the weather flap (where your unit vents to the outside)this should swing open when the unit is in operation.either one of these can cause excessive heat build up in the unit.(this will cause the thermal limit switch to shut the unit down)thus keeping you from setting your clothes on fire.hope this helps,thanx for using fix-ya
