Unplugged for 30mins, tried the rotating the drum thing and even took clothes out.  The pump is pumping fine,when it activates.  OE code is always the code displayed when trouble arrives

So I guess the answer to your question of what's next would be...

Most likely your problem is with the water level pressure switch.  The part number is AP4445151

I really doubt it's anything with the control board.

Did you do the water level frequency check? When you press the "SPIN SPEED" button and "SOIL LEVEL" button the water level frequency should be above 246. If it be below that number find the small tube going to the control and blow it out. Get rid of the sediment in the air bell and reconnect tightly. Pump out water and retry.

I have taken the taken a wet vac and cleaned out the pump and also the little drain hose in the front of the machine.  The littlr drain hose was completely clogged with sediment but is now clear.  The pump is also clear.  where is the air bell located and how do I clear that?, I would imagine that is my next step

That is the thing that the tubing attaches to at the base of the tub. As the tub fills the air pressure inside the bell expands and pushes against a bladder up inside the main control. When the correct pressure is reached then the switch makes the jump to light speed and  throws the power over to the motor; all systems is go. So what goes wrong? Sediment gets in there and clogs up the tube. The control ain't getting the propah pressure reading and is having a hissy fit. Yank of the tubing up at the control and blow through it to release any sediment then securely reattach the tubing and drain the machine so it can get a fresh readin and know what the water level is. After clearing and reattaching the tubing and draining the machine unplug that motha fer a spell so it can meditate on workin correct.

When I did the test the 1st time it was mid-cycle.....when I did it the proper way, as your instuctions indicated,  it was 266 on the reading.  so now Im totally lost as to what the issue may be.  Gremlins perhaps?

You must have an issue with the controls. Unplug them and check for corrosion reconnect them and retry.
