I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.
This is a common problem on this model and unfortunately, there is nothing you could do other than unplugging the unit for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turning it ON. This would usually reset the error code. If the problem still remains, then it is either bad thermal sensor or whole digital controller.
If you wish to repair, revert and i would be glad to provide few more inputs to the diagnosis.
I wish i could have a better solution.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Check for ice build-up in and around the freezer fan where the blades are, if you can see ice in there (some times it may look like white foam but dont be fooled, it will be ice), the fan will be hitting it, defrost the freezer and check defrost element, (you will have to dismantle freezer section to get to it but reletively simple job) disconect from mains first. Good luck

This requires system repair, replacement of drier, triple evacuation, and weighed in refrigerant charge.
May also need to change the compressor oil depending amount of moisture absorbed.
This is a timely and costly method which must be performed by EPA Certified Technician.

That unit is surprisingly clean. It may have had the fan module that you can see in picture, replaced and whomever replaced it, did not put the lug back on or it was not there with the newer unit.

Clicking sound is overheat at the compressor. There is a device called a Clixon that is cutting and restarting. Remove covers and clean the condenser grill with a vacuum cleaner and brush.

these units are usually set up to have the beater rotate in a clockwise direction facing front. If they get stuck, it is usually due to excessive wear or the hexed end has been lubed and has created a suction seal in it's counter part. Try rotating the beater in a counter clockwise direction while holding the drive wheel pulley stationary. Be sure to unplug unit first. this has worked for me in the past but can be very difficult at times.

Too high of water pressure letting in more water then it can drain off. Try turning down the water first
