That code usually means RPS sensor, it is not sensing the drum turning. Check to see if the tub turns freely. Here is the link to the tech sheet.

drum turns free and if you are in manual test mode and spin drum by hand the wash, rinse, and spin indicators all light up. washer is only year and half old. I pulled motor cover off and all looks good not sure what to do now. thanks

I've had to replace motor controller/RPS on these washers. I would call Whirlpool and explain situation, see if they will do anything for you. The old squeaky wheel gets the grease.
