Both the old and the newer fashions of Samsung washing machines display error codes often. These codes do not entirely signify serious problems, but rather, they signify small issues that you can correct on your own. This guide will highlight the principal error codes and what they mean.
- Error codes 3E1, 3E2
They show a motor load problem or a motor system fault. To solve it, reduce the amount of laundry in the washing machine. Also, connect the halt sensor well. You can try to correct the loose parts, although the ideal solution would be to replace the entire motor system.
- Error code 4E1, 4E2
They signify a problem with the water supply temperature. To solve them, inspect the water supply system to identify any clog or blockage that would prevent the flow of water. Also, confirm if any cracks are interfering with the water supply. Check the water hose too and ensure it’s in a good position.
- Error 5E
It shows that the draining system is at fault. To solve the problem, inspect the entire draining system to remove the clogs. If the filters are old or damaged beyond repair, replace them.
