this error occurs when the computer thinks there is water in the tub after it has tried to drain, also suds will cause this error, if you are using too much detergent or the wrong kind is could cause build up of suds in the washer, you should be using HE detergent and no more than a tablespoon or you are using too much. Try to run a load of clothes in the washer with no detergent added if you see suds then you know you are using too much soap because the soap is not rinsing out of the clothes.

However if the problem is not too much detergent then it will be either the pressure switch hose or the pressure switch itself, you will need to remove the hose and see if its stopped up, if not replace the pressure switch if you are positive that too much detergent use is not the issue.
