ERROR DECISION BASIS = WATER LEVEL dose not rise to the set level in within 30 minutes.
NO INLET lamp blinks
CAUSE FOR ERROR OCCURRENCE = Water faucet is closed?
Water supply is interrupted.
Inlet V/V is clogged with dirts.
Connector has bad contact to the inlet valve.
BLUE 6-pin connector has a bad connection at the main board.
REMEDY = Open water faucet. Wait until water supply is resumed.
Clean or replace filter.
Correct the connector contact.
Same as above

ERROR = DRAINAGE
ERROR DECISION BASIS = Water is not completely within 12 minutes. (0E)
CAUSE FOR ERROR OCCURRENCE = Is the drain hose located properly?
Drain hose is folded or clogged due to freeze or dirt.
Defective drain pump or the BLUE 3-pin connector to the main board has a bad connection.
REMEDY = Drain hose properly positioned at 0.9 ~ 1.2 m (36 ~ 48 inches) above the floor.
Make sure the drain hose is not plugged with a foreign object.
Check drain pump motor contact. Replace the pump if necessary.

ERROR = UNBALANCE

CAUSE FOR ERROR OCCURRENCE = Laundry in the INNER TUB is filled unevenly.
Washer is tilted.
REMEDY = Load the washer as evenly as possible.
Adjust the leg.

ERROR = LID OPEN
