Repairman1981 :

The code is coming from the moisture sensor under the lower drawer

Repairman1981 :

You need to kill power, remove the lower drawer

Repairman1981 :

and remove the cover over the board

Repairman1981 :

Take the mounting screw out. DRY VERY well and use a hairdryer to evaporate any left over moisture on the board

Repairman1981 :

Once dry the code will be gone and you need to diagnose why it got wet in the first place

Repairman1981 :

Can be as easy as a cup or plate that was up too high and the lid closed on it rather than the lip of the drawer, or could be as complicated as a lid motor not running

JACUSTOMER-7yod7l75- :

How do you remove the drawer?

Repairman1981 :

there are tabs on each side at the bottom behind the panel

Repairman1981 :

Press in and pull the drawer otu

Repairman1981 :

Repairman1981 :

Repairman1981 :
