During the rinse cycle, I think, I'm getting a message of an alternating f and h on the control panel. Is this an error message and what does it mean? Also, can you recommend a website where I could download an instruction manual for this machine?

If the unit was working fine before bearing repair, then I lean toward wiring issue. Do a visual inspection of the water valve and all the wires to it. One might have been put in wrong place. If wiring is correct, then maybe a bad water valve. The water valve has multiple solenoids and the one for rinse might be bad. I still think its a wiring issue. Good Luck!
E3 Error: Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual check shows motor is not moving. (Locked, Hall Sensor fault). The hall sensor is a circuit in the motor. the motor will need to be replaced. Here is a link to the motor.
I hate to say it but it sounds like the controller. I used to have one that had a similar problem that was fixed with a diverter and a controller. Another year or two later it was doing the same thing, so we just replaced it. Just a warning.
OVER CURRENT ERROR – Display shows 8E.
IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, “8E” Error is displayed.
During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error “8E” is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power SIW OFF can clear the overload error.
would advise calling a tech... hope this helps.
