"CA" is an Average Current Limit alarm or error. It's an indication that the you may have a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Overloading the washer can cause this problem. Press Pause/Cancel to clear the alarm. If the problem persists, then I would suspect one of the causes that were mentioned. I hope this may help you.

The whole cabinet comes off on this washer. Too remove you need to remove 2 screws in console. These may be in back on the right and left ends of console or may be in front on each end. If you can-not find them they might be hidden under plastic end trim. They are located in front of console on both ends. To remove pry them up from the inner lower edge and peel towards outside of washer. Then remove screws and shake console back and forth while pulling up. Console will hinge back.
Remove to gold colored clips with screwdriver prying at front. Make note of the position of these clips. Unplug lid switch harness and pivot cabinet back and off. The usual spot for a leak is the pump. Check for stain coming from area on pump where motor shaft enters. The pump can be removed by taking off the 2 clips. Also check small diameter hose that enters side of wash tub in back side. Make sure this is attached to tub.

The most likely thing to cause the code and the leak is the water pump. If the shaft seal on the pump leaks, the water gets into the drain pump motor and shorts it out. The code is telling you there is a high current/amp draw at one of the motors.
You can see if the pump is leaking by tilting the machine back, removing the screws that hold the bottom to the front edge of the machine and looking at the pump. If the pump is leaking, you will need a new pump and possibly a new motor control board.
Post back if you need further instructions and we will walk through the repair.

open the door though, put your hand around the rubber boot assy, run *** all around looking for small tears, and or holes, if so replace it. only other thing to do is remove the lower access panel and watch it spin a load and youll be able to detect where te waters coming from

probably rubber hose from tub to pump broke, access from back or bottom, (cabrios are open bottom) pump in rear. there is a recent bulletin about tub ring not channeling water from dispenser completely into tub
