When I was clothes, they come out stained with the "gunk" around the door seal. I have tried to clean this seal, but it is difficult to clean completely. Do you have any recommendations?

Answers

Answer: 
I apologize for the frustration you are experiencing. There are many factors that can cause an issue such as this. Different minerals in the water or a home water softener system can change the quality of the cleaning. The amount of detergent used is a main cause of poor cleaning performance. Due to the amount of water used per cycle in the High-Efficiency unit, the amount of detergent has to be reduced. Our recommended amount is generally 2 TBSP. The unit does not use enough water to rinse out the clothing properly if too much detergent is used in a cycle. This can cause and odor as well as leave the clothing looking dingy. It is imperative to maintain the unit by following the cleaning instructions in the owner’s manual. In addition front load tub cleaners are available at your local store.

Answers

Answer: 
The OE Error can mean that the drain hose is bent or clogged or the drain filter is clogged. Has the drain filter been cleaned recently? Items caught in the drain filter can prevent proper drainage. Furthermore, if the filter has not been cleaned recently, build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through drain hose, then lay a towel down (to catch water) and remove filter. Clean thoroughly and restart the machine. Is the drain hose installed properly? If the drain hose is not installed properly, the unit will not drain properly. Make certain that the drain hose is installed no more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine. Refer to Owner’s Manual for additional information regarding the OE error.
