Troubleshooting

 My washing machine is displaying the OE error. How do I clean the drain pump?

  

cause  Cause


The 'OE' error essentially means the water is not draining from the washing machine.

As your washing machine cannot drain if the filter of drain pump is clogged, re gular cleaning is necessary in order to avoid laundry

residue being accumulated  inside the filter. It is likely the cause is a kinked or clogged drain hose or a clogged pump filter.
