It's a up side down F backwards 3

I was told by a service tech this was referred to as the Key code?

I am looking to repair this is it a possibility that the main board is at fault.

The LE the l should have a small line through the vertical the manual says to call service tech. I did that they told me it was the thermistor and would cost 200 to repair I decided to order the part and replace it myself cost 19 dollar and 1/2hr my time. But it is still the same.

Not sure if i trust the technician or it was coincidence. Any help would be grateful.

I think the error code that you are receiving is a "tE" which indicates a problem with the thermistor. There are a few things that we see cause the tE error. It can be caused by a broken wire at the thermistor, a bad connection at the main control board, bad thermistor, bad control board, or a wiring problem. Let me know what you find.

"tE" I have replaced the thermistor twice the first time the machine work for awhile. did weeks washing then went to use it again and the code came up replaced second thermitor and this time tE code comes up. Will look into control board?

Yes I would inspect the wiring, and if that is good then I would replace the control board.
