Will you email a status to let me know how long it will take to analysis
Sorry for the delay.
The F:01 error code indicates a failed main control board.
From the tech information:
F:01 Primary Control Failure
F:01 flashes when there is a primary control failure.
Replace the machine control electronics.
One more minuet and I will get you parts and repair information.

Please click here to order the new control board.

If you scroll down on that page you will see to the right hand columb the instructions to install the new board.

Be sure to ground yourself properly as these boards are static sensative.

Please let me know if you have any other immediate concerns.
If not please select a positive rating at this time. Doing so will not close your question, and after you rate my service you may ask any followup questions you like. All at no additional charge.

Thank you.

Some additional information for you.
I am first getting the normal light reading that shows sensing wet then I continue to hold start button to see if its a delay due to size of load, then I get the f01 reading.
