Hi Lisa,

My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. When you emptied the water did you get the machine to pump it out on a drain? Have you checked the drain filter to ensure it is clean and not blocked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi it's a washer/dryer, I used the drainage tube at the bottom to drain it out, it's not clogged I've checked that

The drum is stuck

Can you move the drum by hand? The machine should display and error code if the drum stops spinning do you have any error codes?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I can't move it by hand and there is no error code

Thank you

It is a direct drive drum so you may not be able to move it by hand. Could you put the machine on a spin and let me know if the drum moves at all even if only slightly.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it's not moving at all not even slightly
Expert:  carlday1 replied 1 year ago.

Could you leave it on the spin to see if you get an error code.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
will do will let u know
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just keeps flashing and trying to spin, will leave it a while longer to see if I get a code, could the drum be stuck on something, I can normally move the drum by hand round

Error code 3E
Expert:  carlday1 replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry but I was expecting error 3E I suspect that either the motor or the motor tacho are to blame. The tacho is an item on the motor that works out the speed of the motor.

Would you want to repair the machine your self?

Here is a link on error 3E and things to check
