Hi my name isXXXXX have been an appliance repair tech since 1992.
Let me pull the service manual and i will be back in a few. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you solve your issue with the washer.

Appliance Parts :

The best way to determine the fault of the washer is to run a test mode.

The laundry washer must be empty and turned OFF.
Press the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons simultaneously.
While continuing to hold spin speed and soil level, also press the POWER BUTTON.
The buzzer will sound twice. Unit powers on.
Release first three buttons. Press START/PAUSE button once to enter test mode.
CAUTION! Test mode procedure change.
Push the START/PAUSE button ONLY ONCE at High Speed Spin.
When the drum is rotating at high rpm, never push the Start/Pause button repeatedly.
Unrepairable damage to the main board could result.

Hi Rick, I got it into the test mode (all lights one) but went to push the START/PAUSE nothing happend. also got a F8 code

Appliance Parts :

Ok let me pull the F8 code up

Appliance Parts :

Need to change the water valve, which comes into two parts:
5220FR2006H, and part# XXXXX
You should be able to remove the rear screws to the top, slide the top off and remove the water valve.
There is where the fill hoses connect to. Do a google search for best pricing or go to to order the parts. Thanks!
