Does the washer ever even attempt to fill? Try COLD WATER ONLY, then HOT WATER ONLY and see if it try's to fill.

What type of fill hoses are you using? if they are those "flood prevention" type hoses they will not work with front load washers.

I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below--->F8E1--->NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING WASHER OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED
The washer does not detect water input after 13 minutes of filling.

Possible Causes
• Is water supply connected and turned on?
• Check for blocked or kinked inlet hoses.
• Low water pressure or blocked hose screens.
• Check for proper drain hose installation. Is water siphoning out of the drain hose? Drain hose must not be more than 4.5" (113 mm) into drain pipe.
• Check connections from tub to air trap, air trap to pressure hose, and pressure hose to pressure sensor.
Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?

• See TEST #6 (Water Inlet Valves) on page 17.
• See TEST #7 (Pressure Sensor/Switch) on page 17

I was at a customers house in Blythe, CA. a couple years ago and had this exact same error code F8 E1 and I cleaned out their air dome and blow through the pressure switch hose, and they haven't called back since. Try that on yours first too.

Here's the air dome for your model:
