clean the debris filter usually situated at the bottom of the washing maching you will need to open the panel, you should see a rubber tube with a bung in the end you need to take the bung out in order to drain the washer, once you have drained the washer you can clean the filter by unscrewing the large black round bung. hope this helps

The display should say 5E, this means that it's not draining. unlucky for you as this means you have to replace the drain pump, wich aperently cost about $137NZ. this seemes to be a common fault. i'm not a teck, but I just had the same thing happen, lucky for me i had a warranty.
Other simptoms are the loud racking noise coming fromn the washing machine. home this helps.

Just did the above directions on my washer also.And to make things easier you can pull out the whole drainagehoses by removing 3 little phillips head screws and a couple of hose clamps.Then pull all hoses off individually and clean out all hoses and assembly a lot easier.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Samsung '5e' means 'water drain error'.
I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.
5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
