About 2 years model #wtw7000dw0

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

My name is Mike

Hi Mike, can you tell me if you recently moved into the home or have made any recent changes to the washer or its configuration?

no phone call

That is an automatic offer. Just ignore it.

no changes made

Ok, Typically, this error means that you are not getting enough water. Have you checked the inlet hoses to make sure they are supplying enough water? Also, if your drain line is too far in the hole in the wall, it can siphon the water out as it fills. This will keep the washer from getting enough water. Sometimes the drain line gets gunk around it in the wall and needs to just be pulled out and put back in.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Lastly, if those items check out, what is left is an inlet valve. Often, the inlet valve gets debris caught in it. This will restrict the water flow. In this case, you would have to replace the inlet valve. Would you like the part number for that in case you need to replace it?

I will check all of that but my washer doesn't seem to fully drain. At the end of a cycle my clothes are dripping wet

That is probably because the washer is giving an error due to low water flow and quitting before it spins and fully drains the water out. If you are sure the error code is F1E8, then you have an "insufficient water" issue.

Here is a link to a video for replacing a water valve on a Cabrio. It isn't your exact model because a video will not exist for it. It should be about the same though.
