Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.
This indicates a long frain.
Here is the code translatoion:
Fault is displayed when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on for 10 minutes.
• Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged? Check tub sump under impeller for obstructions.
• Is the drain hose height greater than 96"?
• Check pressure hose connection from tub to main control. Is hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?
• Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7: Drain Pump, page 17.
One moment and I will post page 17 for you.
The pump is accessed from the back of the unit.

Thanks. 1 other question. My machine is a XW1 model and the manual is for XW0, Does that matter? It has caused problems when ordering parts.

One sec and I'll find out. I dont think it does. The diffrences are cosmetic and features (e.g; griddle instead of burners, warming oven, etc.)

No it doesnt make any difference.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

OK but you're talking ovens instead of washing machines. Please explain.

Sorry. It was a bit hectic when I posted that. Darn neighbors were going at it again.

I did look it up on the tech site and there is no difference.

Sorry about the confusion.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

So, it doesn't make any difference on the washer stands. Just want to be certain.

Not sure what you mean by washer stands?

Are you talking about pedistals that the washer sits on?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I don't know where that stands came from. I must have gotten in the juice early last night. I just want to be certain there is no difference as to parts and repairs between the X0 and X1 washer models.

LOL I know the feeling. No, no difference.
