Okay great, this is a problem with the flow meter (water)

but before you do anything else or replace anything I would check the drain pump trap for obstructions, remove the bottom panel under the door this is an access panel, there are three screws underneath close to the floor, remove those and you will see this once you take the panel off,

get some towels ready and turn the trap counterclockwise and pull it out, clean it real good and reinstall it, try the machine again, if it runs your all set if not you need to replace the flow meter, you can order the flow meter at, this will take care your issue, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
