If your Samsung dishwasher is displaying the error code "OC," it means that the dishwasher is overloading. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as a blockage in the dishwasher's drain hose, a clog in the dishwasher's filter, or too many dishes being loaded into the dishwasher. To fix this problem, you will need to clear the blockage or clog and make sure that you are not overloading the dishwasher.

You are here because you have a question about:

1. Check the water supply and make sure it is turned on

  1. Go to the Samsung app and open the Menu.
  2. Tap on "Settings."
  3. Tap on "Water Supply."
  4. Tap on "On."
  5. Tap on "Check Now."
  6. If the water supply is on, the dishwasher will turn off. If the water supply is not on, you will need to turn it on.

2. Check the water inlet valve and make sure it is not clogged

  1. Open the dishwasher door.
  2. Look for any debris or foam at the water inlet valve. If there is, clear it away using a putty knife or a plunger.
  3. Turn the water off to the dishwasher at the main water line.
  4. Inspect the water inlet valve for any debris or foam. If there is, clear it away using a putty knife or a plunger.
  5. Turn on the water to the dishwasher and open the door.
  6. Check to see if the water is flowing freely from the dishwasher. If it is not, check the water inlet valve for obstructions.

3. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked

  1. Open the door to the dishwasher and locate the drain hose.
  2. Inspect the hose for any kinks or twists. If the hose is twisted, remove the kink or twist.
  3. Reconnect the hose to the dishwasher and close the door.
  4. Check the dishwasher's error code to see if the drain hose was the cause of the error.

Still not working? maybe try one of these options:

  1. Clean the dishwasher filters
  2. Clean the dishwasher drain
  3. Run a test cycle to see if the error code still appears
