In most cases this error is caused by a pinched or stopped up water level pressure switch hose. Remove the top off the washer and examine the pressure hose for kinks, clogs or tears. The hose is attached to the pressure switch and the washer tub.

Either the pressure switch or the control board is faulty and needs to be replaced.
