This fix worked for me also. I was skeptical to say the least, but I'm truly amazed now.
I have no idea why that could cause an error code, as it's just a simple relay latch.
There shouldn't be any way for the system to know it's not working properly, but somehow it does. Resistance in the coil, I suppose.
I used white artist's tape, and put a couple layers so that the actuator plate is not hitting the front stop, and a couple layers underneath so it can't be pulled all the way back against the electromagnet. And much to my amazement it fixed it.
The existing foam was still there but very thin, not much thicker than a sheet of paper so I guess that was the flaw.
Thanks again for everyone who posts on this forum.
