Hello, this is Dave. This usually only happens if the control thinks the washer could be overfilled. If the water was turned off and it ran this will happen. Plug it back in and let it run for 12 minutes and if it was just water that was turned off it will reset. Let me know what happens.

I assume the washer is okay now but please let me know.
