Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just answer
How old is it ?
and do you hear a hum from the bottom of the washer ?
Hi Kevin - it's about 4 years old
When the OE light flashes and it doesn't empty there is a humming noise -sounds like it's coming from the control panel
OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water....if you have already cleaned the drain pump filter, drain hose and the drain pump assembly then it is the drain pump that is bad and will need replacement
you can also pull the washer out and then take the drain pump out to clean it
Is that easy to get out?
Yes you will have to disassemble the washer
sorry I mean remove the cabinet cover
then separate the pump hose, the bellows and the circulation hose assembly from the pump assembly
to remove the cabinet cover the top cover has to come off
then the front cover should be removed
are you willing to do this yourself ?
Yes. We live in France and if we call out a technician it costs a fortune, so we will give it o go now.
OK, give me a moment I will tell you how to remove the cabinet cover
With the Unit unplugged...1. Unscrew 7 screws on the Rear Frame.2. Disassemble the Rear Frame.3. Pull the Control panel forward.4. Disconnect connectors.5. Unscrew 5 screws.6. Disassemble the controller assembly.
after this you will have to remove the top plate
To remove the top plate1. Open the Lid.2. Unscrew 4 screws.3. Disassemble the Lid Assembly.4. Pull down the Dispenser by pushing hooks.5. Put a hand into the dispenser hole and hold the top plate.6. Push backward using an opener and lift the top plate.
Then after the top plate is removed1. Unscrew the 2 screws from upper side of the cabinet cover.2. Unscrew the screw from filter cover.3. Put a flat (–) screwdriver into the both sides ofthe filter cover, and pull it out.4. Unscrew the 2 screws from the lower side of the cabinet cover.5. After this you can easily remove the drain pump assembly
or if you just want to clean it you can remove the two screws as I said earlier from the lower side of cabinet cover and then pull the filter out and then clean the drain pump & hose assembly as much as you can

OK. We cannot get the front panel off because of the rubber door seal.
then you will have to take that off as well, there is a screw in there to remove it...or you can try another method that I have advised you
