4E (4C) ERROR
The 4E (4C) error code indicates that the washing machine has detected a problem with the water supply. The most common reason for this error is a blocked or kinked water supply hose. Try the below troubleshooting steps to resolve.

1. Fully power off your washing machine at the mains.
2. Move the machine forward to give access to the water hoses.
3. Check that there are no kinks or bends in the water hose connected to the machine.

5E (5C) ERROR
A 5E or 5C error code indicates that the washing machine has detected a Drainage Issue. The most common reason for this error is a blocked filter or a kinked drain hose. You should also check that the drain hose has been installed properly and clean the hose thoroughly to remove any blockages that may be preventing your washing machine from draining properly.
Warning: If a cycle with hot water temperature settings was run recently, the water in the washer may be very hot. Allow approximately one hour for the water to cool before performing this procedure to avoid possible injury.
Your washing machine's drain pump is responsible for pumping water out of the main drum so that it can be drained away. The drain pump filter protects the pump by filtering the water that drains out from the drum. However, over time, lint builds up in the filter and small items such as coins, hairclips or hair can become trapped in the filter. If the filter is clogged, your washing machine may not drain properly.
If your machine is having trouble draining, it is important to check that the drain hose has been installed correctly so that the water from your machine can drain away properly. Washing machine's drain hose could be connected to the waste: either via a spigot or via a standpipe.
If the drain hose is connected via a standpipe, your washing machine's drain hose simply hooks over an open stand pipe which is connected to the waste pipe.
Follow the instructions below to check that your drain pipe is correctly positioned and installed.
If the drain hose is connected via a spigot:
If you have recently installed your washing machine, make sure that you have removed or cut off the blanking cap.
If the drain hose is connected via a standpipe:
If the drain hose is clogged or blocked, your washing machine might not be able to drain properly. Check the drain hose for blockages and clean it to ensure that the water can drain away.
Note : You might need to use a screwdriver or a wrench to open the clasp that attaches the pipe to the machine.
