Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Ok the meaning of the error code and the corrective actions are listed below.

If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a
current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby
mode and display either “CA” for average current limit trip, or
“CI” for instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2-second average of
current draw greater than 5.55 Amps at the motor windings.
Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 Amps
instantly at the motor windings.
➔ This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal
protector, or motor controller.
➔ Overloading the unit may cause this problem.
■ Press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.

If a shipping company moved the washer they may have installed some packaging around the tub to prevent it moving. If not the motor may have been damaged or the suspension in the move.

Please remember after "ACCEPTING" you can come back at any time for additional assistance if needed.
