Never run into this myself. Why are you holding down the start and pause/cancel buttons together?

Does it fill with water?

Did you find the tech sheet inside?

You must have the washer in the test mode. Unplug the washer for 8 seconds and reconnect it then retry.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.

I think E6E means Error-6E
6 = belongs to the heater fault family, and may include problems caused by faulty heater thermofuse or water temperature sensor
I'm not sure about the last "E", sorry
Hope this could help

undocumented E6E error code is a bad interface control board
