HELP!,   Im seeing two fault codes F7-E5 and F5-E1 not sure what to do next , the washer will first get stuck on sensing for a long time ,sometime water wont fill .eventually after powering on and off it will fill then  ,start to move through the cycle only then  just not do anything at all with the timer not moving eventually making it all the way through until the very end . Ive had to turn the knob to the drain cycle to get it to drain already .

Lift up the washer top panel and you'll find a tech booklet in a ziplock bag at the top left front of the washer cabinet.  The tech booklet will tell you what the error codes mean and give some troubleshooting tips. 

The F7E5 error is commonly a shifter fault.  The shifter is on the bottom of your machine and is easy to change.
