Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.

I have worked with a number of folks on FAV6800AW clutch issues and feel that your problem is related to the clutch. It could be an issue with the Tub Displacement Sensor but because you machine is terminating the spin cycle with a dc error I feel the TDS is working as designed but we can do a quick check. Take a look thru this post and see if you or someone you know has the basic mechanical skills to drop the clutch out of the machine and inspect the upper and lower clutch roller bearings and the clutch spring. If they are not rusted beyond clean up and the clutch spring is not broken you may get yourself back in service with little cost. Post back if you have further questions or need help in troubleshooting your dc errors. This is a quick test to see if the clutch is binding due to roller bearing friction; Lift your lid and with one finger can you rotate the wash basket CCW (counter clock wise) with very little force? I do it with my pinky.
When the clutch malfunctions due to dry or rusted roller bearing or a broken clutch spring the tumblers rotate slowly in spin cycle and toss the clothes around while the wash basket attempts to spin up. The load goes unbalanced, the wash tub starts making exaggerated excursions and the Tub Displacement Sensor signals the control board to try again to redistribute the wash load, I believe the process is 4 or 5 times. After the last try the control board terminates the spin cycle with a dc or UC error. Does this sound familiar? In spin cycle the tumblers will rotate maybe a half turn at the most at the start of the spin cycle and no more as the clutch engages the spinner shaft rotating the wash basket CCW. You do not fail with an empty wash basket because you are not tossing and clothes around while the wash basket is spinning up. You can redistribute the wash load till the cows come home and you will continue to fail with dc or UC errors to the display. Some folks have gotten their spin cycle to complete by loading the wash basket up with a load of wet towels, who wants to that. Read the post I refer you to and the links of folks that have done clutch maintenance or have replaced the clutch as in that post. To have the clutch replaced by a repair service would be in the ball park of $300+. You or someone you know can do this it’s just a tight work area. I will help you thru this if you decide to take on the maintenance.

Remove the tray and check the proper operation of the solenoid for the door.
