LONG DRAIN: If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes without reaching reset level in pressure sensor, the valves are turned off and the drain pump will stop running. NOTE: Suds can cause delays in draining. Washer drains for 4 minutes, pauses 5 minutes, then tries again for 4 additional minutes of draining. F9E1 will display if washer does not drain. (Normal drain takes less than 2 minutes)

Possible Causes:
Verify that the drain hose is not blocked or kinked.
Make sure drain hose is not sealed into drain pipe.
Make sure the drain hose height does not exceed 96" (2.4 m).
Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
Check connections from tub to air trap, air trap to pressure hose, and pressure hose to pressure sensor.

The washer is draining completely, but the pump runs long past the tub is empty, until it displays an error code.. I doesn't over fill as far as I can see. So I think the pressure switch is working..

Then either the drain pump or control board is faulty and needs replaced.

I've cleaned the lint trap, there was hardly anything in it. I get the error when I run empty with just water.

Id say this is the control board faulty.
