This top load washer has intermittent problems with spin. Sometimes it will work thru cycle and then start to vibrate/shake badly just before or at start of spin. Then it will stop, the clothes can be adjusted to balance load, then you can start again and it will finish cycle. I tried to run diagnostic. Standby mode then press
"temperature, soil level, spin speed" in succession 3 times. All lights blink then stay on. Then press soil level again, then start to begin automatic test cycle. The problem is that the display should show C00 before pressing start. It shows 000 blinking, and when start is pressed it does not seem to go into test mode. Am I doing something wrong? Additionally, 2 error codes came up F2 E1 (display keypad issue???) and F7 E5 (shift actuator issue). This is a relatively new machine. S/N C83374338 (does this indicate age of mfg?) Does someone have the tech sheet for this one? Any advice appreciated. Thank you.
