Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, the error code is a water inlet problem. Make sure the water is on and pressure is good to the valve on the washer. Next check the screens on the valve where the washer hoses connect. Sometimes sediment can clog the screens.
Based on the error code it sounds like you have a water valve issue. Do you see water in the bottom right now? You can unplug the machine for 2-3 minutes but that usually does not fix this issue.
Unplug the washer and remove the top. You can reach down to the bottom of the door lock and pull on the manual unlock loop on the bottom of it. You can at least get the comforter out for now.

It looks like this med7000ago that's the number you initially gave. The sticker is usually around the door jamb?

Sorry its the c41250041 the other number was on some paperwork
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 2 years ago.
The model is right next to that number I believe. It should start with several letters. The other model number is ***** a dryer I believe.
