no thank you
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 8 days ago.

08 is part of model number.

Timing fault may be due to faulty condenser pump and/or motor that will need replacement.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 8 days ago.

The condenser pump at the rear of the appliance may be clogged or faulty.

OK no problem.

You're welcome and Good Luck.
