This error can be caused by drag on the drive system. Check the drive system for worn or failed components. If the washer is making a loud roaring noise during spin then the rear tub bearing on the washer is worn out and causing drag on the drive system which is causing this error. The bearing will need to be replaced to fix it. If the bearing is ok check for articles of clothing trapped between the wash basket and inner tub.
If everything listed above checks out then replace the motor control unit.
