It fills and drains but will not spin or agitate.

Try this:
With the machine in the OFF position. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds. Then go to the spin cycle and see if she wakes up. Yall might have to do it several times before it resets.

It is right on top of the motor.However just ohm the two wires coming from the mode shift to the motor. That will probably explain your problem.

There are pictures and a video on this page that will help.

Clearing the code may put it back to work but you need to note which error the motor has just in case the problem comes back.

I almost forgot if the light isnít blinking your fuse is blown or the motor is bad. The page I posted above tells how to check the fuse.
