Washer won't Start Wash Cycle, display flashes "Err" 3 times then shuts off.
Also, won't do a Spin Only cycle with empty tub.

If I unplug washer for 30 minutes (or longer) then it will resolve the "Err" issue.
I'm not able to view stored error codes and not able to clear error codes using the Tech Sheet.
The Wax Motor on Door Lock Assembly shows 1500+ Ohm's.
I'm getting 115 VAC on Wax Motor Wire Harness connector and 115 VAC on Door Lock Assy. 4-Prong Wire Harness connector.
Therefore, I need the Service Manual (if available) to help with troubleshooting.

To show the error code.



Reading Error Codes - Affinity Models
1. Press and hold the SELECT and CANCEL buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset control. The buzzer will
sound 1 time and “rES” will be shown briefly in the display.
2. Immediately after, rotate cycle selector knob 2 turns counter-clockwise to the third position from the top, and
then press and hold the SELECT and CANCEL buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds. The control will enter Field
Test Mode, the buzzer will sound 3 times, and the digital display will alternate between “Fld” and the firmware
revision number (ex. “r03”).
3. Rotate the cycle selector knob 2 turns counterclockwise. The error code will appear in the digit display.
Troubleshoot problem by using chart on next page.
To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.
To clear code, press the SELECT button. Code will be cleared when mode is exited.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the SELECT and CANCEL buttons for 6 seconds.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic
control.
E24 Control NTC
Short
Circuit
Control thermistor or its wiring is shorted.
Remove wires from control thermistor. Measure resistance of thermistor. If
reading is not 50 K (± 10%), replace thermistor. If reading is within 50 K
(±10%), check wiring between thermistor and electronic control. If good,
replace electronic control.

120V on gas models, replace electronic control. If meter reads zero, remove
power from dryer. Disconnect wire going to NO terminal on the relay RL2.
Reconnect power and measure voltage drop between terminal COM on relay
RL2 and neutral. If meter reads zero, wire between incoming line and relay
RL2 is open. If meter reads 120V, check the rest of the heater circuit.
