Hi - the out of balance switch has activated this will be found under the lid right side if you bend lw enough you can see it hanging by a lever - it may have activated from the previous cycle - it needs to be freed - put it outside of the bowl and be sure its free to operate - if not it needs to be removed and replaced.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

So if you were to count from left to right then lights 3,5,7,and 8 would be on correct? If these are the correct lights lit your machine is giving you an error code the motor controller 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.
check that the out of balance switch is free to move
check that no harness is blocking the switches movement
check that the switch activates properly when activated replace if it does not
if the switch shows signs of corrosion replace the switch and the harness and fit a condensation kit
check the level of the machine and also the bias switch
check the harness is connected correctly
and finally if all seems good with the switch it states to replace the motor control module if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
