I don't see either of those error codes. try this ,

To clear the diagnostic code list, first enter the

Service Mode by pressing and holding the Chime


and

Temperature keypads for three seconds. Next, press and hold the Sensor Dry Level and Time


keypads at the same time for three seconds while viewing the list. This will clear the diagnostic code


list. Finally, exit the

Service Mode by pressing and holding the Chime and Temperature keypads


for three seconds.

see if the error code comes back.

okay well it looks like this is a control board issue. that last error you got doesn't even come up in the tech sheets which means the control is throwing out false codes.
