Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So this error is a very bad error code because it means that your motor control board isn't communicating with the machine control board. One of the boards is defective or the wires are not securely plugged in. You'll need to order and replace the control board in order to fix the issue. The motor control board is located below the tub mounted to the floor below the tub. Just remove the 3 screws coming in from below the lower front panel and then the lower front panel will remove so you can see and replace the motor control board if you wanted to replace the part yourself.
