Under the machine :)

You have to pull the machine out and take off the side & bottom panel to do this yourself

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : Ok I am just about to take the side panel off
KevinWhiteJA :


JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : Hi just taken the side panel of and you can see the way the water flows and in there I can see a bit off hair from my dogs

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : ok I am just about to if you look from the side I can see water laying on the tray
KevinWhiteJA :

Yes please clean it and make sure everything is dried up

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : Ok will do
KevinWhiteJA :

alright let me know how it goes..I am waiting

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : Right I have turned the machine up side down and it got plastic bottom I don't know how to undo it
KevinWhiteJA :

On the floor of the machine is a circular device and inside this is a float & the switch....if this float rises, it makes the switch and generates the error code you have and turns on the drain pump. You have to check this item to ensure it's not stuck up, activating the switch.

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : I am stuck taking the bottom panel off I can't see no screws
KevinWhiteJA :

but is everything cleaned now and have you checked for all possible leaks ?

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : I have turned it on it side and a lot off water came out but have not taken the bottom panel off because I can't see how to
JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : But have cleaned all the water up
KevinWhiteJA :

it just comes out...try to take out the screws in there

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : Screws out off where sorry
KevinWhiteJA :

if the bottom panel has screws in there you can take it out or just try to take it off

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : Ok it has no screws and can't see how to take no clips or any think
KevinWhiteJA :

ok then this model would not have the screws...just make sure everything is cleaned now and plug it back to check if it works fine

JACUSTOMER-5nx4ppc7- : ok will do
