Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There are several different models with different control systems. Can you please double check that model number and post the rest of the characters after the WAS20160, please? The error code is likely a sensor fault but I will need the complete model to verify.

Great. Looks like error 43. Where is the speed sensor in this machine?
Expert:  Kelly replied 12 months ago.

It is built into the motor. Check the motor connections to make sure they are secure as well as the harness into the control module.
