My Repair & Advice
After extensive reading online about similar issues, I determined that replacing the Actuator was worth a try. The part arrived at my home in less than 24 hours after ordering - seriously!
I drained any extra water using diagnostic mode, then tipped it forward on a 2x4 to get access to the bottom. Replacement was a breeze, and washer working perfectly now!
