Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 25 days ago

I'm not sure how your washer is acting but the 1st error code isn't an error. When all 5 flash it just means it's in diagnostics and ready to show error codes. The second set of flashes means that your door latch has failed. So if your error code is accurate, your lid latch assembly will need to be replaced.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 25 days ago

ok well that's what the error code says is wrong. Why are you pulling up error codes? What is the washer doing?

Half full of water won’t start to drain out
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 25 days ago

Hmm, I'd remove the drain pump below the tub and make sure it's not jammed with debris. If it's clear, re-install everything and see if the washer will drain and spin without water inside it. If so, start a new cycle. If it still won't drain and it stops again, replace the drain pump.
