That is an error code of 8-1, meaning that there is a problem with the draining.

  1. Is there water that has not drained out?
  2. How is the drain hose connected to the home's plumbing?

No problem with drain. I am a retired plumber/plumbing inspector, Seattle

So no water hanging around in the tub still, it has all been drained out?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
All drained

Can you please turn the breaker off for at least 5 minutes and then turn it back on? Does the error return?
