After 8 years of almost daily use I got my first error code on the washer. After a little googling around it seemed as though it might be as simple as clearing out the filter. I followed these simple steps and everything seems to be back on track again:
- Unplug the washing machine.
- Remove the panel on the front by removing three screws at the very bottom. You will probably need to tilt it back to get a good angle on them.
- The pump is in the center and has a plastic handle that can be unscrewed to remove the filter. As you unscrew it water will come out. Be ready with some towels.
- Look amazed at the dirty filter.
- Clean the filter.
- Put it all back in.
I did a small load with the front panel off just to make sure there were no leaks before I put it back on.
