Check if the water has been turned off and if the taps are open. Look behind the machine. Make sure that the hose is not obstructed, kinked or kinked. If everything is in order, remove the top cover and check the inlet valves for integrity using a multimeter. Ring the electrical circuit, check its continuity.

The appearance of such codes obliges you to pay attention to the drain hose and the water level sensor. The hose is most likely clogged or loose on the drum, causing the sensor to incorrectly read the remaining water inside.
Move the washing machine away to access the hose. Disconnect it. Look inside and make sure there is no blockage. If it is, blow out the hose or connect it to a faucet and apply water pressure.
Replace the water level sensor in the machine. It is located under the top cover of the case, has a round base. Before carrying out any work, disconnect the equipment from electricity.
OE, 0E, OC, 1OC, 10C, 0C,
The water level in the drum is out of specification. There are two reasons:
- The valve that opens when water is drawn in and drained is out of order or works with restrictions.
- Non-working pressure switch.
If you did not turn on the machine, and water still appears inside, then the inlet valve does not fulfill its function to the fullest. Its normal position is closed. To make the codes disappear and not appear again, replace the intake valve or repair.
Inspect the sensor that detects the water level. Look at the reliability of the drain hose to it.
SUd, Sd, 5d, 5UD, SUdS, 5Ud5

The error indicates that the washing machine cannot properly distribute the load inside the drum. The occurrence of codes is accompanied by a knock. Codes also appear when the machine fails to complete the process of drying things.
Load things correctly. No need to collect them in a lump and shove them. Place inside in turns so that the laundry is evenly distributed. Do not exceed the amount of things. Look at how many kilograms the machine is designed for and stick to these parameters.
