I am getting the f8e1 error frequently but not with every load. The pressure incoming on both hot and cold is good, the hoses are not kinked, the filters are not clogged, & the drain is not clogged. The washer takes forever to fill. I read that there was a similar problem with model # WFW96HEAW0. I run the diagnostic but does this model have both the inlet valves and the diverter valve?
Thanks!

F8E1--->NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING WASHER OR PRESSURE SENSOR TRIP NOT DETECTED--->The washer does not detect water input after 13 minutes of filling.

If you have plenty of water pressure to the machine, and the water inlet valve screens are not clogged, then the problem is the water inlet valve itself.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model:
W10599356 Valve
