Try the following steps

1. Unplug power
2. USING THE FINGER HOLDS ON EITHER SIDE, lock scanner cover into open position
DO NOT TOUCH THE ENCODER STRIP (clear plastic strip in front of the white vinyl band)
3. Remove jammed paper/foreign objects (check under the print head; if the print head is in the middle, slide it to the either the left or the right side, & check for paper scraps underneath the print head)
[IF WHEN THE SCANNER COVER WAS OPENED, THE PRINT HEAD IS ON THE LEFT SIDE]
4. Move the print head to the middle
5. With the print head in the middle, remove any ripped paper/foreign objects from the left corner (SINCE THE RIPPED PAPER COULD BE VERY SMALL, USE A FLASHLIGHT TO INSPECT)
6. Close the scanner cover & plug the machine back into the power outlet
[PERSISTENCE OF THIS ERROR MESSAGE OR NO PAPER SCRAPS/FOREIGN OBJECTS FOUND MEANS THAT THE ENCODER STRIP WILL REQUIRE CLEANING]
[IF WHEN THE SCANNER COVER WAS OPENED, THE PRINT HEAD IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE]
7. Plug the power cord back into the power outlet...LCD will show "Cover is Open"
8. Press Stop/Exit for approximately 5 seconds until the print head moves to the middle
9. UNPLUG MACHINE FROM POWER OUTLET
10. USE A FLASHLIGHT & TWEEZERS TO INSPECT: Remove any debris from the right corner
11. USING THE FINGER HOLDS ON EITHER SIDE, close scanner cover & plug machine into power outlet
[PERSISTENCE OF THIS ERROR MESSAGE OR NO PAPER SCRAPS/FOREIGN OBJECTS FOUND MEANS THAT THE ENCODER STRIP WILL REQUIRE CLEANING]

TO CLEAN THE ENCODER STRIP... (clear plastic strip in front of the white vinyl band)
[Markings & debris can adhere on the surface of encoder strip FROM HAND CONTACT &/OR GREASE CONTACT INCURRED FROM REMOVAL OF JAMMED PAPER]
DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE SUBSTANCES NOR ANY TYPE OF SPRAY TO CLEAN INSIDE/OUTSIDE MACHINE
1. Unplug machine from power outlet
2. USING THE FINGER HOLDS ON EITHER SIDE, lock scanner cover into open position
3. Clean both sides of encoder WITH ONLY A DRY, LINT-FREE CLOTH
DO NOT FORCEFULLY PULL ON ENCODER STRIP
DO NOT TOUCH ENCODER STRIP WITH BARE HANDS
DO NOT FORCEFULLY SCRUB ENCODER STRIP (THAT COULD SCRATCH ITS SURFACE)
4. Clean encoder strip from right to left--stopping just before the left corner
5. Clean encoder strip from left to right--stopping just before the right corner
6. Repeat steps 5 & 6 two or three times to clean thoroughly
7. After cleaning encoder strip, USE FINGER HOLDS TO close scanner cover
8. Plug machine back into power outlet.

Check drain hose is clear of any blockage or obstruction
Check wiring to drain pump
Check drain pump is not defective
Check level sensor or switch
Check wiring to level sensor
Error 4
Washing machine has detected problem with the wash heater
For this error code you need to check both the water heater or element and thermistor, the washing machine is reporting a fault on the heating circuit with this fault code but it is not capable of identifying exactly where the fault actually lies.
Check water heating element
Check heater for contunuity
Check thermistor or temperature sensor
Check the thermistor resistance
Check wiring to water heating element
Check connections to water heating element and temperature sensor
Error 5
Not drained in time allowed - washing machine fails to drain water
Check water supply is on, clear and not frozen
Check the air chamber and pressure sensor hose for blockages
Check water inlet valve
Check wiring to water inlet valve
Check connections to water inlet valve
Check the main control PCB
Error 6
Motor heat protector error or failure
The washing machine has detected an error on the washing machine's main drive motor circuit in relation to teh overheat protector within the motor itself.
Check motor connector block
Check motor carbon brushes where fitted
Check wiring
Check tacho connections
Check motor
Error 7
Motor error or failure
The washing machine has detected an error on the washing machine's main drive motor circuit but, like other errors cannot pimpoint he exact location or nature of the fault.
Check motor connector block
Check motor carbon brushes where fitted
Check wiring
Check tacho connections
Check motor
Error 8
Washing machine has detected an overfill situation
This error code can be caused by overfoaming which is a result of overloading (see this article) or by overdosing or, incorrect detergent as the pressure sensor will falsely read that there is too much water in the washing machine.
Also check the pressure sensor and that the machine has not actually overfilled with water.
Check for overfoaming or over soaping
Check the air chamber and the pressure switch hose
Check water level sensor
Check wiring to water pressure sensor
Check connections to water level sensor
Check main electronic controller
UNb
Washing machine has detected an out of balance situation
This error code is caused by an imbalanced of incorrect load in the washing machine
Check for overfoaming or over soaping
Check the air chamber and the pressure switch hose
Check water level sensor
Check wiring to water pressure sensor
Check connections to water level sensor
Check main electronic controller
