Samsung washer error codes: 1E and E7

These error codes indicate a problem with the water level sensor. To fix the underlying problem causing the code, locate the pressure hose system, then inspect it for any signs of blockages, splits, or general wear and tear. If you can’t find any damage, it’s recommended by the manufacturer to replace the pressure sensor. If you do find damage to any part of the pressure hose system, try to repair it. If that doesn’t work, replace the sensor.

Samsung washer error codes: 3E, EA, and EB

These error codes indicate a problem with the motor. To remove these codes, check for an open or short circuit within the wiring of the motor. Also,check if a connection has come loose and tighten it.

Samsung washer error code: 3E1

This code means the motor is overloaded. To solve this problem, make sure your washer isn’t overloaded with laundry. If that isn’t the problem, you need to check that the hall sensor terminal is properly connected. If that also seems fine, you may have a printed circuit board (PCB) fault that needs to be repaired by a qualified technician.

Samsung washer error code: 3E2

This code indicates a motor driving error. To fix this error, you need to replace the motor PCB.

Samsung washer error code: 3E3

This code means a problem exists with the quiet-drive motor. This is caused by either a defective motor hall sensor or PCB connection. It may also be caused when the cover isn’t properly on the quiet-drive motor. Check each of these components and repair or replace them if necessary.

Samsung washer error code: 3E4

This code means there’s a problem with the quiet-drive motor caused by the PCB housing terminal becoming disconnected, a faulty PCB, or another fault within the quiet-drive motor. Check each of these components and repair or replace any that may be faulty.

Samsung washer error codes: 4E and E1

Both of these error codes mean you have a water supply issue. To resolve the underlying problem, check the water pressure and that the water supply is turned on. Also,make sure the water hoses are not impeded from supplying water to the washer. If those components are fine, check the water inlet valve. If it’s defective, replace it.

Samsung washer error codes: 4E1 and 4ED

These codes mean the water temperature isn’t right. To fix the problem, make sure the water hoses are connected to the right taps.

Samsung washer error code: 4E2

This code means the water temperature is too hot for the selected wash cycle. To fix the problem, make sure the water hoses are connected to the right taps.

Samsung washer error codes: 5E and E2

These codes indicate a drainage error. To fix the problem, make sure the drain pump filter isn’t blocked and the drain hose isn’t kinked or blocked.

Samsung washer error codes: 6E

The 6E error code means the water heater has a problem. To fix the problem, check the water heater with a multimeter to ensure it has continuity. If not, replace it.

Samsung washer error code: 8E

This code indicates an overcurrent error. To fix the problem, turn your washer off for 30 seconds before turning it back on again. If that doesn’t work, the inverter motor windings need to be inspected.

Samsung washer error code: 8E1

8E1 indicates a MEMS sensor error. To fix the problem, check that the connections on the MEMS sensor are attached correctly. If not, replace the sensor.

Samsung washer error codes: 9E1, 9E2, PH1, and Plo

These codes indicate a power error. The underlying problems causing the error codes can be fixed by checking the power supply voltage, ensuring the connections are attached correctly, and that the noise filter and fuse are not defective. If any of those components are faulty, replace them.

Samsung washer error codes: AE, 13E

These codes indicate a signal communication error. Check all the connections on the main PCB and the sub-PCBs. If you find a fault, repair it.

Samsung washer error code: bE

bE means the motor TRIAC has shorted. Turn the power off and on to fix the problem. If that doesn’t work, replace the PCB.

Samsung washer error codes: bE1 and12E 

These codes mean a power button fault exists. Press the power button down for at least 13 seconds to fix the problem.

Samsung washer error codes: bE2 and 14E

These codes indicate a control button fault. Press down any button except the power button for 30 seconds to fix the problem.

Samsung washer error codes: bE3 and 18E

These codes mean a switch error is present. Check the relay for faults.

Samsung washer error code: CE and E8

These codes indicate a cooling error during a wash cycle. To fix the problem, make sure the water hoses are connected to the correct taps and if that doesn’t solve the problem, check the heater temperature sensor to ensure it is working correctly.

Samsung washer error codes: dE and Ed

If you see these error codes, the door isn’t closed properly. Make sure nothing is obstructing the door from closing.

Samsung washer error code: dE1

This code means the door lock switch isn’t working. Check that the door is closed correctly. If that doesn’t solve the problem, check the door switch. If the switch is faulty, replace it.

Samsung washer error code: H1

This code means the water temperature is incorrect. To fix the problem, check that the water temperature sensor is working correctly. If the sensor is okay, check that the pressure switch is working, and the hoses are connected to the right taps.

Samsung washer error code: HE

HE means the water temperature is not correct. You will need to check the water hoses to ensure they’re connected to the right taps. Also, the sensor might not be working properly, so you may need to check that.

Samsung washer error codes: HE1 and E5

These codes mean the water heater has a problem. Use a multimeter to check the water heater resistance. If the heater is faulty, replace it.

Samsung washer error codes: LE, LE1, E9, and 11E

All these codes indicate a water leak. Make sure the drain hose is not positioned lower than the base of the washer.

Samsung washer error codes: OE and E3

These codes stand for overflow error. It means your washer has too much foam in it, which is usually caused by adding too much detergent. To solve the problem, turn the washer off for 30 seconds, then turn it on again. This should activate the drain pump. Once emptied, start a new wash cycle.

Samsung washer error code: OF

The OF error code means your washer is overflowing with water or the water level is too high. Check the water inlet valve to ensure it is working correctly. If not, replace it.

Samsung washer error code: Sud 

The Sud error code means your washer has excess suds or foam. This error should resolve itself during the wash cycle. If it doesn’t, drain your washer and start a new cycle. Make sure you don’t use more detergent than is required.

Samsung washer error codes: UE and E4 

These codes mean the load isn’t balanced. To solve the problem, open the washer and move your laundry load around to make it more balanced. If that doesn’t work, you may need to remove some laundry – especially heavy items like towels.
