    Hi just read your posting.It is nice to see someone respond with lovely comments as you have done.Now on your machine the Error code you indicated is called COLD VALVE FAULTY.This means either your cold valve coil is faulty,or the wiring to the cold valve is faulty or the control module is faulty.I can guide you throe the testing of each component if you would like.But unfortunately you need an electrical test meter so we can test the cold valve.Do you have or can borrow one ?Please reply on how you would like to proceed and I will help you as much as I can.Once again thank you for the lovely comments.As I help people for free your comments are appreciated.Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi just received your last posting.Now at the back of your machine ,up top ,you will see 2 screws.Undo the screws with a PHILLIPS HEAD screwdriver.By the way turn off the power at the outlet before you do any work on the machine,Do not want any accidents. Once the screws are removed lift the top panel gently away from the machine as it still has the display wiring attached to it.Rest the top panel on the lid and look to the left and you will see the water valves.There are 2 types of water valves for this model.The 1st type is 2 single valves that are clear in the body of it and have a beige coil.The 2nd type is colored mainly blue for the body and is a double valve.Could you please reply and tell me which valve type you have and when I receive this information I will guide you in how to use your new electrical test meter.Looking forward to helping you further.

I just had that problem. Do you have any water inside the washer? if you do drain it. Try running the diagnostic mode to drain the drain pump. then unplug the machine for 10 sec. then run the machine, that should take care of the problem. You'll find the service summary behind the control panel.
