I think about 6 years old. After pressing and holding the start and half load buttons to get the error code, the code I got was 2 flashes on the start button and 5 on the end button

Tried wash cycle. Machine started but stopped while water was being added (within 30 secs?). Tried spin cycle, some water drained away but cycle stopped again after about 30 secs. Wife now home, apparently washer is 10 years old!
