That's F7E5. I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

Go into diagnostics and clear the error codes. This is very important since most complaints start with the lid lock on and blinking, or the unit will not start and spin.

If, when in diagnostics the codes are F7E1, F7E5, or motor speed codes, then chances are it is a motor, capacitor, or shifter related issue. Once the codes are cleared, put the washer into a manual diagnostic test and run the HEAVY AGITATION; if
after 15‐20 Seconds the motor runs then you can rule out the motor, capacitor, control, and most likely the wiring harness connections (although still check the BK wire from the shifter to the control). Remember, the timing wheel only turns in the
transmission during the spin cycle.

Next, while in Manual diagnostics, try to get the unit to spin; if the motor hums for a split second and then shuts down with the lid lock blinking; go back into diagnostic codes and look for shifter or speed sensor errors.

This is proof that the shifter/sensor assembly is the issue because the optical sensor is not reading the motor speed.

Here's the shift actuator for your model:
W10913953 Actuator


Video Included in part link.

Let us know what happens.

What was the problem with your washer to begin with?

When I would do a load it would not spin all the water out of the loads. I tried smaller loads and it still would not spin out the extra water.

Would it drain the water fine, but just not spin to get all the water out of the clothes?

If that's the case usually the shift actuator is the cause, and also the cause of the F7E5 error code.
