There should be 3 screws at the very bottom of the bottom panel, Remove panel there should be a canister shaped screw top. You can unscrew that. That is your filter before the water pump. Make sure you have some towels ready. Good luck!

Clothes are sopping wet even after doing the spin cycle 3 and 4 times, water is going through hose fine it seems, it a front loader


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water is not draining.is something clogged?


Hello,

below are some troubleshooting tips that might help to solve the problem;

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

My electrolux frontload washer seems to be stuck on the "drain" cycle. It is making a loud buzzing noise and will not drain or perform any function.


Hi

Loud buzzing sound is coming from drain pump. It is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

What should I do?


Hi


Error OE means drain error, this occurs when the draining doesn't occur within 10 minutes. This happens due to clogging of drain hoses and drian filter. It can also occur when the drain pump is clogged. To check where the issue is you'll need to disassemble the washer and check for the drain pump, remove alll the hoses connected to it and clean all the debris. The pump is behind the filter screen on lower left front side of the washer. Also clean the drain filter and remove any possible clogs.

This error may also appear when the drain hose is not installed properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine. Please post back for any further assistance.
