I have a new Samsung WW85K5410ww Add Door washing machine. Worked fine for the first 3 months. Yesterday I tried putting a load through and it won’t go further then the first 3 minutes. Starts to fill with water then just stops after 3 minutes. No error code showed up however after I turn it off then on again and do Smart Check, it comes up that the Add door is open. The Add Door is definitely closed, I have checked for anything that may be jamming it or the actual door but it looks fine.
I have tried unplugging the machine, different cycles, checked the hoses etc. Called Samsung and they couldn’t help me. Any ideas?

I have a front loading 9kg ecobubble wf90f5e5u4w Washing Machine. When the drum is on the ‘slow turning’ part of the cycle it does not turn.
The drum turns freely by hand and it does not give an error code it just stops the cycle.
I also slipped the belt off and the motor was not turning properly then either.
So I think it must be either the motor or the drive circuit.
The smart check function also says to check motor so I have checked connections on the motor and the main board (again it could be the motor or drive circuits at fault).
It is the induction motor type so does not have brushes it is less than two years old so a total failure of the motor seems strange (i am another who did not register the warranty so Samsung won’t honour the 10 year motor warranty).
Before spending a lot of money on a new motor any thoughts?

How could it already be having error codes when it’s so new?! And what can I do?

Erin,
Samsung Washing Machine Error Code AE6 means = Communication error between INVERTER PBA and MAIN PBA.
Check to be sure the wiring harness going to and from the main control panel outward are secure and not loose.
If all wire harnesses are tight and in place, you may have a faulty board.
Call the company you bought it from as there should be a warranty.

Samsung dryer error code 2E can usually be fixed by unplugging the washer for 10 minutes. This may reset it and clear the 2E fault code. If this does not work, you need to check the wiring harness from the mainboard outward. Be sure all wiring harnesses are secure.

I have a Samsung washing machine WF1600NCW.
I encountered “Uc” error code on display and learned that it is due to voltage surge.
I waited until normal voltage arrives and machine started to operate normally as usual.

As of late, I am encountering the OE error code that shows following problem/s as:
1) At Power On mode, while commanding programme in 63 minutes wash loaded normally with standard detergent and laundry, water comes into tub more than normally encountered before. OE error then displays in washing machine monitor leading to draining out of excess water automatically.
2) There is no water flow, while water supply tap is on, to the tub in Power Off mode.

I have also gone through for my case the following:
1) Water valve might be blinking
2a) Possibly, rubber hose from bottom of tub to the side of water level sensor might be chocked and be freed by pushing air only by aforementioned mechanics.
2b) Possibly, water level sensor is blinking.

Thanks for the reply Ian,Z.

I had already checked the inlet valves for continuity and all tested good. Since my last post, I also order a new Control board thinking that may have been the problem since there was never an error code thrown.. However, I swapped the board and the exact same issue. I can hear the pump running however something is not telling the water inlet valve to open.. it will continue to run like this and you can not pause or stop it from the power or pause buttons, the machine has to be unplugged to stop it. Im wondering now if its the control panel.

thanks

I have a Samsung HE front loader WF42H5400 AF/A2 that’s a couple years old.
For some reason, its not getting water however its not throwing any codes… it will startup and you can hear clicking but no water… I checked the water supply and screens, all good, I ohm out the water inlet valves. All good, I checked the coin filter, all clean..
and you can’t turn it off, it just keeps running like it’s waiting to fill with water. It has to be unplugged to turn it off.. I left unplugged over night and it still does the same thing. Powers up, starts the cycle however no water.
I did pull the cover off the control board and there is a red flashing light on the board however I don’t know if that’s a problem with the board or if the board is indicating a problem somewhere else in the system.

Samsung washing machine, every wash flashes ERR from the start continuously. Sometimes the wash still goes ahead regardless, other times it stalls and sits there. No error code, just ERR and constant beeping. Pressing pause can change the time of the wash for no reason. Tried unplugging but it just reverts to same. Hate any electronic washers for this reason.

You most likely have a faulty door locking assembly.
Here is a page to show you what to do in your situation about the Samsung washer DC error.

To open the Samsung washer door if stuck or locked and the mechanism is faulty, Samsung front loaders have a small door located near the base that you can open and inside you should find an emergency pull release for the machine door.

DIY Project Help Tips 24 DIY Project Help Tips July 1, 2016 at 6:04 pm

Carl C,
Error Code PE on Samsung washer means = The control board is not detecting that the clutch motor is working properly.
Usually there are not many control boards bad and the clutch motors are reliable.
The problem is MOST LIKELY in the wiring.
You will need a multi-meter to check the ohms and continuity.
Test voltage going to the clutch.
Voltage should be 120 vac.
Check resistance through wiring harness to be sure the wiring is secure and not damaged.

DO THIS:
Unplug the washer.
Check the wire connections between the clutch motor and the main electronic control board.
Check for loose wires or replace the wire harnesses if damaged.
If the wires check good then disconnect the clutch motor wire harness and measure the resistance between terminals 1 & 3.
It should measure around 2,000 ohms.
If you measure infinite resistance then replace the clutch motor.
If the clutch measures infinite resistance it is broken.
Parts that need checked or replaced: clutch motor & wire harness.

I’m having this same problem. When I measure resistance at the wiring harness going to the stator with the machine unplugged I do not get a reading at all. Nor do I get anything close to 2000 ohms when I check resistance at the stator it self, just a very low reading…?

My Samsung washing and dryer motor is not working and display error code 8E.

Reply

DIY Project Help Tips 27 DIY Project Help Tips June 24, 2016 at 9:30 pm

Mr OLUWASEYI,
Samsung Washer = 8E = OVER CURRENT ERROR

IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).

IPM: Integrated power module.

The IPM controls the motor.

If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately.

However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500 ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.

If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, “8E” Error is displayed.

During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error “8E” is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800 rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily.

Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

Le/1E/Ie/lE Error Code
If you see the words/letters “LE”, “Le”, “1e”, “1E”, “le”, “lE”, “Suds”, “SUDS”, or “sUDS” on the display, it is an indication of “oversudsing” or a water level error. This is almost always caused by using too much bleach, softener, detergent or non-HE detergent. However, this could mean there is an issue with the water level sensor.

The Samsung error code D5 or DS is the same. The D5 error is actually DS. The code means the Samsung washing machine thinks the door is open or unlocked during the cycle. The door has to be checked to be sure it is shutting or closing correctly. Is it getting properly closed? The problem is related to faulty door locking assembly. You will need to check the door switch to confirm it is faulty. Let us know what you find.

I have a Samsung top loader –Model number WA50F9A8DSP/A2.

The water comes on to fill the tub when the start button is pressed and stays on through out the cycle. So even when the machine is spin drying the water is still running. Water goes off at the end of wash cycle and the drum is filled with water. The correct sequence for the past few years should be press the start button then select wash mode then hit start and the door locks and the machine starts the cycle and water shuts off once filled.

Yilian Turcios,
It is most likely a 5E error code and not SE…. 5E error means clogged debris filter… Samsung Front Load Washers have debris filter access panels located on the front of the unit. The filter is housed inside of the drain pump to prevent the drain hose from being clogged. If not cleaned regularly, unpleasant odor, draining, and filling issues will arise hence the 5E error code. Clean the filter and the error code should clear.

Dana,
Samsung washer 4E error code means a water inlet problem or the washing machine is not getting water. Make sure the source water is turned fully on and check the water pressure.
Is your washer getting water? Is it turned on both HOT and COLD? Fully open? If so is the water inlet where the water goes into your washer clogged? Turn off water and remove hoses to be sure there is no clog.
If the washer IS getting water and the hoses are not crimped and the water inlet is not clogged, let us know and we can assist to troubleshoot further.

With 4E (water inlet) problems note that there can be 2 filters on the water inlet. One in the hose at the tap end and another inside the hard plastic pipe on the washing machine end. On my WF7700 front loader, the one inside the machine end is pulled out for cleaning by a little blue tag. Both filters can be largely blocked at the same time. DF

I have a Samsung WA45H7000AW/A2 Washer Top Load, giving a 4E error, and I have done the following:
Checked to make sure the hot and cold are getting good pressure.
Made sure the hoses have no leaks, kinks or clogs.
The HOT and COLD are turned on and fully on.
Replaced the water inlet valve.
I tried different washes from Quick wash, normal wash, to rinse and spin. All fail.
I have also completed a successful calibration on it.

The washer starts, locks the door, begins the pre-wash (spray and spin drum), starts to fill both hot and cold. Gets about 10 minutes into the cycle with about 2 1/2 inches of water in the tub and then it throws a 4E error. Immediately it dumps the water and it takes about 10 minutes before you can power the washer off from the 4E error.

What else can I do?

DIY Project Help Tips 67 DIY Project Help Tips April 21, 2016 at 10:05 pm

Kirk,
If your Samsung washer gets the 4E error code, have you made sure the Water Hose Mesh Filters are clean? The error code 4E does mean the washer is having issues getting WATER supplied to it. This error will be released using Start/Pause button and the washing machine will restart and attempt to fill with water again.

If you replaced the water inlet valve and you still get the 4E error code, there is still some type of water supply issue. It may sound simple but check the Mesh Filters as this is one of the main reasons a Samsung washer will get the 4E error.

You may want to check the wiring coming from the Pcb and pressure switch and check the connections. Try opening the washer and clean the pressure bowl and pipes that run to the pressure switch.

Samsung WF206BNW/XAA is not washing or spinning.

Tony,
If your Samsung front loader is not washing or spinning, at what point do you experience an issue? Does the washer fill with water? What exactly happens when you press the wash button and try to wash?
Many times the door lock on a front loading washing machine will go bad or have a wiring issue and cause the washer to NOT WASH. Have you checked the door lock to be sure it is working properly? Here is a picture of the door lock for the Samsung WF206BNW/XAA washer. Can you explain in more detail what is happening with your washer so we may assist?

I have a Samsung top loader washing machine for just over a year. I put it on the quick wash cycle and it fills with water but just about to spin and the UE error code jumps up and stops. Not sure what the problem is?

Natasha,
The Samsung washer UE error code is telling you that the laundry load is not balanced. Try to redistribute the wash load as per the recommended chart here. If the door remains locked and the machine is displaying UE error, please run a drain program – select the spin button until it is on NO spin – either spin symbol with line or a zero.

ERROR CODE 8C ON SAMSUNG ACTIVE WASH WHAT DOES IT MEAN CANNOT FIND IT IN THE MANUAL.

Natasha Estrada,
The 8c or 8e error means there is a connection error. The problem is on the washing machine main circuit board. This usually means a new control board is required to fix the washer. Check the connections to the control board to be sure everything is connected secure. If so, a new control board will be needed to fix your washer.

It now drains. However, the spin is slow and the slipping noise is still occurring. Is a belt accessible which I may check?

Randy G,
You will have to open the washer up and check what is causing the slipping sound. If the spin is slow it may be a speed sensor or a part binding up in the washer itself.

Unless there is a malfunction in the display light, it is “HC-76”. It originally appeared during the “Rinse” cycle. It would not drain completely but continued to the “Spin” cycle and would slowly turn clockwise and counter clockwise. At this point the is when I could hear the noise which sounded as if something was slipping. I did not smell any type of burning. It seems to go thru its cycle, however, the time display is at a slower than normal rate.

Check the drain pump to be sure there is no blockage. Also check the drain filter and drain hose. If there is a drain blockage the washer won’t drain properly and therefore an error will appear and the washer will NOT spin.

I have a Samsung washer (Model #WF330ANB/XAA01) which I have had for 5 years. I have been experiencing problems draining and spinning. It displays “HC76” which is not mention in the manual. I have run several of the modes and cleaned out any clogs as instructed. When I attempted to run a cycle, the drum will not rotate. It makes a sound as though something is slipping. I removed the back of the unit but without removing any further I do not see anything. Can you assist me?

Randy G,
First, please recheck Samsung washer error code. Is it HC or HE?
Does the washer fill and drain as normal EVEN THOUGH THE DRUM WILL NOT ROTATE?
At what point does the error code HC76 appear?
Do you smell any type of electrical burning smell or rubber burnt smell?
Does the washer go through the cycles or stop and will not run.
Please give more details so we may assist further.

Your Samsung washer is NOT DRAINING = ND.
Check the drain hose for bends, check the drain pump for clogs, check front filter and clean if needed (filter on front depends on model number of your Samsung washer).

I get a PC code and washer stops working. If I calibrate the machine before every load it might finish the cycle. The machine is only a month old. Installers were back a second time to verify that the machine was level and connected properly. Called Samsung and they have no idea what the PC code means. Everything I can find tells me to check clutch. Any help will be appreciated.

Bob,
We would call the appliance company we bought it from and either demand a new machine or a skilled repair person to come and repair. Why are you working on a one month old washer? PC error code does not show for Samsung in our database. Are you sure it is PC? Also, what do you mean you have to “calibrate” the washer before each wash? Can you give us the model number of your Samsung washer?

Samsung washer model #WF209ANWAR/XXA. I’m getting E3 error code. Checked the wires and they are all in place. Even unplugged it like one website said to do. I don’t know what else to do or what would need to be replaced. My husband was the one to look up the code and what to do to try to fix it. But he is not home and I would like to know what to do next?

DIY Project Help Tips 85 DIY Project Help Tips October 1, 2015 at 6:49 pm

Angel,
The 3E error code means a drive motor tach error. If you have already unplugged for 3 to 5 minutes and that did not help… Check the wiring on the drive motor and on the control board. Make sure they are secure and tight. IF so proceed next by checking the hall sensor. The hall sensor is in the back of the washer. It monitors the speed and tub direction. The sensor can be out of range or it could also have a bad wiring connection.

DIY Project Help Tips 88 DIY Project Help Tips September 21, 2015 at 9:16 pm

Thomas,
Do you believe the machine is actually seeing a true unbalanced wash load or the washer is sensing a false unbalance? Is the issue constantly happening or is it every now and then? Are you overloading the washer or washing large items like blankets or towels? Here is a Samsung washer DC error video to let you see what Samsung suggests.

Just replaced the pump in my Samsung front load washer 2 months ago. It worked fine and then we moved and now it’s throwing an E2 code. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

DIY Project Help Tips 90 DIY Project Help Tips September 8, 2015 at 8:59 pm

Alison,
If your Samsung washing machine is flashing or displaying the E2 error code, the control panel is most likely needing to be replaced. This error code indicates the computer senses a stuck or shorted key on the keypad. The key pad is actually a user interface PCB control.

Our Samsung washing Machine WD8602R8W is not working. It is not showing any error code. When we push the button to start it, it’s stuck and shows the sign of a lock (not the child lock) simply the photo of a lock. Will be pleased if someone can guide to solve the problem.

Is the door locked and will not open? You may have a door locking mechanism fault. Check wiring harnesses and test door lock with meter. Have you tried unplugging the washer for 5 minutes?

I have a Samsung with yo the 5E error too. I have checked and cleaned the debris filter an have the drain hose now going directly into the tub. A bit of water comes out the drain hose as it tries to drain but I suspect not enough. Still getting the 5E error when I try a rinse and spin.

Either get a new drain hose or reposition it and secure it so this does not happen. If the drain hose is NOT the issue, you may have a clogged drain pump. Check drain pump for debris.

I can’t open the door to get my wet clothes out of the machine

MKS,
You may have a water inlet problem or the machine cannot feed itself with water. Check to be sure both hot and cold water is on. Check for kinks. If this is ok, you may have an issue with the water inlet valve. Check to be sure all wiring harnesses are tight and secure. Does your washer fill with water? Does the washer display the 4E error code at initial start of wash cycle?
