Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! That error means that the electronic control cannot detect the sensor that monitors the balance of the tub. There are several things that can cause that error, including a faulty sensor, faulty control or a wiring issue. See the attached page from the service manual. Are you abel to perform electrical testing and disassembly on this complex machine?
