Reason in the safety thermostat
The clothes remain wet when the thermostat is triggered. You may have overloaded the washer with laundry, as a result, the electric heater overheated and protection worked. You can solve the problem by dividing the clothes into several parts and drying them alternately.
A faulty TEN fan also causes it to overheat, causing an error code. How to troubleshoot? Replace the fan.
