    The washer fills up with water & when it goes to spin, it stops, beeps and says E6 on the display. When we change the setting to spin only, it will fill up with water to rinse, and then show E3, or will go to spin and display E6 again.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

First the 'E6'. The only Manufacturer's decode I have for Samsung 'E6' is 'water temperature rising/ falling too quickly, check thermistor'. I would go through the balancing act (detailed below) and then see if it recurs. If so it's a service call I'm afraid ;-0(

Now the dancing
Although you say it's level I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain before considering something inside ;-0)
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly!
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.
If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

SOURCE: Samsung P801 Front Loader shakes violently during spin cycle.

When the washer goes into spin cycle it is suppost to start at a slow speed and continue to increase speed (to a maximum of 800 RPM) as the water leaves the clothes. Your washer is going directly to 800 RPM which causes the washer to shake and stop giving you the E4 code. The control board that controls this speed increase must be replaced.

I had the same problem. I ended up paying $300 ($100 part $200 labour) for an authorized technician to replace the control board and that fixed the problem.

Samsung 6kg front loader (SEW-DW605WB) showing Error code E6


Hiya,
E6 is listed by Samsung as :- Water temperature rising/falling too quickly. Check thermistor.

The thermistor is the temperature sensor
, normally a probe located in the heater.
Unplug the appliance, take the rear panel off and the heater is at the bottom rear of the tub. Check the wiring to it and check the heater for continuity.

Apart from these checks you're left with replacing parts on a "fit and see what happens" basis. I'd try the heater and thermistor first.

Hope this helps.
Thanks
