Samsung Washing Machine: Interpret Error Codes

Whether brand new or serving you for years, if your Samsung washing machine has a digital display unit, you must have surely seen the funny error code messages at some point.

Modern Samsung washing machine has a display panel that shows the 'time for wash'. But if your machine is in trouble it helplessly displays an error code message to convey to you that something is not right. Let us try to interpret these Error Codes so you instantly know whats wrong with your washer man (i.e washing machine) and can help it better and quicker.

Samsung Washing Machine Error Codes & Solutions

  1. Error Code: 5E

What it means: that Water does not drain. If the water does not drain in 15 minutes, a buzzer will sound, and the 'remaining time' indicator will show this ‘5E’ message.

Cause: This may be due to following reasons:

  • The drain hose is not down and perhaps hanging on the hook at the side or back of the machine
  • The drain hose may be badly clogged with cloth fibers or other materials

Both these issues cause the water to be pushed back into the washing machine and the machine is programmed to give out a warning buzzer and display the Error message.

Solution: Inspect the hose and if it is not down, bring it down so the water can drain away conveniently

2. Error Code: 4E

What it means: If the water supply is not finished in 1 hour or there is no change in the water level 4 minutes
after the water supply has started, the buzzer rings and “4E” is displayed on the remaining time indicator.

Cause: Water is not supplied. This could in turn be due to multiple reasons so check from those listed below-

  • Is the water tap opened?
  • Is the water cut off?
  • Is the water supply hose or hose connection clogged?
  • Is the water tap frozen?

Solution: Solution lies in the problem statement- make the water supply to the Samsung Washing Machine in tact. The machine will be back to work!

3. Error Code: UE or dE

What it means: -Spinning does not work

Cause: This may be due to below reasons, so do check-

  • Is the laundry spread out evenly in the washer?
  • Is the washing machine set on a sturdy flat surface?

Solution: Stop the machine, open and readjust the clothes by spreading them evenly and untangling any big items. Make sure the Samsung Washing machine is placed on an even surface. If the error persists despite these remedial actions it is time to call an Expert.

4. Error Code: 1E or 0E

What it means: Water is overflowed

Solution: Restart after spinning. If the error sign still indicates, call an Expert from 247Around team

5. Error Code: CL or dE

What it means: This indicates that a Child Lock error occurred. The error message blinks and the water drained with an alarm sound. Draining cannot be stopped. ‘CL’ or ‘dE’ is the error message displayed on the panel.

Cause: This function is to prevent children from drowning when falling into a wash tub.

Solution: When draining is complete and you turn the power off and then on, the washing machine will operate normally. To clear ‘CL’ display, after draining is complete, close the door of the Samsung washing machine turn the power off and then on.
