water is connected

The machine will need to just time out to clear that error. It may take up to 30 minutes but if you just let it run, it will time out and reset. You have to let it just run, though. There is no manual reset.

it's okay that there's no water in the tub? it won't burn motor or anything? There are no other lights on at all except that one.
Expert:  Kelly replied 11 months ago.

It is just the pump that is running and there is always water in it, so it will not damage it at all.
