If you are using the wrong soap the washer will pop up with this error. you are only to use HE soap. If that is not the problem if you take the bottom panel of there are three screws. the first thing that you will see is a trap that is white that is you pump catch. twist it of and check if there are any sock or anything. if this doesnt work you more than likely need a new pump.
watch what you have in your pockets and especially baby socks . check the rubber seal to make sure after your wash that there is no socks or small objects because they can make there way into your pump.

Player does not read disc-code HO3

I followed a few, of the already suggested answers. The first one I tried was to open up the back and use compressed air to blow out lint, food crumbs and dog hair that had found there way into the machine. This seem to have worked just fine. Now the machine is working, much to my daughters delight.

First thing is to remove the 2 screws from the console, they may be hidden in the front or bacl of console. After removing screws, lightly push the base of the console towards the front of the washer and pick up. This will expose your lid switch connection. Using a jumper wire, jump out the black and white wires then try advancing your washer into spin/drain. The culprit will usually be the lid switch assy.
