Error Code E3

I keep getting this code. I bought this from Lowes as a floor model, what should I do next?

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Unplug the dryer take the top off and check your connections from the control to the user interface make sure nothing is loose and the connections are tight. If that checks out I hope you have a warranty because if not to fix it you will have to replace the main control and possibly the interface control. If need part information give me your model number in our live chat.
