That is a NO FILL OR LONG DRAIN CODE. Check and see if the unit has good water pressure to the washer and see if it actually fills with water. If so cancel a cycle and see if the unit drains out. You could have a water pump issue if it is filling and not pumping out or a fill valve issue if it is just not filling. Check it out and see
