Ok, I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

F9E1=LONG DRAIN--->If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves turn off.

Possible Causes/Procedure
- Ask the customer how much detergent they are using and if it is HE detergent. May have too much suds present causing this condition.
- Turn washer ON to verify pump operates; run the drain cycle.
- Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Make sure that wire harness connections at the Drain Pump, Pressure SW, & CCU (DP2, PR6 cavities) connectors are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
- Check continuity from the Drain Pump & CCU (DP2 cavity) connectors.
- Check continuity from the Pressure SW & CCU (PR6 cavity) connectors.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, Main Harness must be replaced.
- Make continuity test to the Pressure SW. See page 7.
- Check the resistance of the motor pump. See page 7.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Run the drain cycle.
- If the failure continues, unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
- Disassemble the drain pump from the washer.
- Check that the impeller is not detached from the motor shaft. If the impeller is detached from the shaft, is broken or has any scratches, the drain pump must be replaced.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the washer operation by performing the Diagnostic Test cycle.
See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power and wait for 15 seconds.

First thing you will want to do is remove the drain pump filter and check it for a clog, if no clog--->Measure the resistance across the drain pump terminals. If it's not 15 ohms replace the pump.

Here's the drain pump for your model:

There is a video in the part link that shows you how to access the drain pump, once you access it, you will see a handle on the front of it, just unscrew it and the filter pulls out.

Have some BIG OLD TOWELS READY, as water will gush out.

Thanks for all your help its fixed! When I unscrewed the filter it was clogged. About a month ago my wife washed my son's stuffed animals and one of the bunnies lost its ear. We never could figure out where the ear went. Well it ended up stuck in the filter.
