Welcome to Justanswer … my name is Kevin and I will help you today!

Can you unplug it and remove the drain pump filter located inside the lower front flap.

Then clean it completely and let me know how it goes.


Please IGNORE the PHONE CALL request.

Just put the machine through a rinse and spin cycle, and it seems to be ok, emptied the water no problem.

OK, do you still get same message after cleaning the pump ?

Can you unplug it and remove the drain pump filter then tip the machine forward by around 45 degrees.

Reconnect everything and plug it back.

Let me know if you still get same message.



Do you have any other questions regarding your appliance ?
