Hi


Error code E6 means the water is not draining due to suds or due to kinked drain hose. Check if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine then you'll need to check the drain pump and drain filter. Access the drain pump and drain filter by removing the back panel or front kick panel. Trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub, you would now see the drain pump, disconnect the hose from the pump and clean the pump and filter. Please be aware that there would be lot of water when you'll remove hose from the drain pump. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

Hi,

Unfortunately, this is a common problem in this machine. There are many reasons for the same. The main problem is - There are hardly any person who is aware of these machines. So, make sure you would call the right person who have experience working on these models. This is a tough job, i would rather recommend a technician.

More often this is a problem with bearing.However, i cannot comment as i am unable to diagnose the machine myself.It could be a problem with cam as well. As these are German models, i do not think, you could easily get the service manual as well.

I wish i could had a better solution.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Can you tell me what e6 on the display means as the machine wont work when this shows


Not sure of the make/model, but with Samsung washing machines that usually means 2 things. If you get it when entering the spin mode and the system stops and displays the code, the water heater is heating too quickly. Press the power button once to clear the code and finish the cycle before repair.

If you get the E6 during the spin cycle that can mean a problem with the main controller board.

You can keep resetting to get past that code but if you continue to get it during a spin cycle or part of the laundry where hot water isn't used, then usually that controller board is bad.

Good luck.

What does E6 mean on a baumatic bwm70


E6 on the bwm70 means that there is a water sensor level error. You can try resetting the error code to see if it comes back on by pressing and holding the the power on, start/stop button, or unplug the washer, wait 30 seconds and try again. If you still get the E6 code, your washer will need to be serviced

Showing E6


You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Door open error shows even when door is securly closed. Is most likely a faulty door latch and lock mechanism, or sensor. Any suggestions to repair without calling in an expensive repair person?


here is a website that has the parts break down. it should be a striker and door switch/lock that are the problem.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5151098&diagram_id=1238997

check to see if the door striker is ok it has two prongs on the door that go into the machine.
when the door is closed the striker goes into the switch.
hope this helps
