F17 seems to be an Inlet valve error. In one of your updates, you say you only have cold water hooked up. Can/have you hooked up the hot water also?
A tub and bearing job is very extensive as you now know. You have almost laid you hands on every component of the machine. I would be checking each and every connections to make sure none are loose. Are you getting full 120VAC from the outlet you plug the machine into?
