Sounds like you have described this fault.
43.(00101011) Phase 1 to 6 - OOB Switch Fault The Motor Control Module has found that the signal returning from the out of balance switch indicates that the switch is permanently on or the harness to it is disconnected.
Primary Source: Mechanical.
Action: 1.Check that the out of balance switch is free to move.
2.Check that no harnesses are blocking switch movement.
3.Check that the switch operates correctly when activated. Replace the switch if suspect. 4.If the out of balance micro switch shows signs of corrosion, replace the switch and switch harness, and fit a condensation kit to the console area if not incorporated in the top deck.
5.Check that the SmartDrive is level and also that the bias spring is in place.
Secondary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the harness to the out of balance switch is connected correctly. The terminals should be connected to the normally closed position. If the harness terminals show signs of corrosion, then fit a new harness and switch.
The switch is located under the main computer. To get it out first unplug machine from the wall, then you will see two screws on the top back of display console take them out and remove console. Now you should see the main computer dissconect and remove, once out you can now get at the out of balance switch. Carefully remove it by pushing the tabs back one at a time again be very careful here as the tabs can break very easily. Once off unplug it from the wiring loom and then source yourself a new one.

Most waashers rinse with cold water and if your cold water screen on the valve is plugged and it can't let water in it may cause your problem.
