SOURCE: Machine stops with SE code
That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage

here is the most common cause for this problem, according to the Samsung repair guy that was here to fix mine today.
On these washing machines it is possible for some debris (in my case it was a small screw from my packet) to make its way passed the drum and into the pump. Once this happens then the impeller of the pump becomes restricted or completely blocked which will result in the above mentione symptoms.
On some machines the pump is on the front, on others at the rear of the machine. In my case it was at the rear, removing the rear panel will allow easy access to it. Have a bucket ready, when the hose is removed from the pump the water will be draining from the machine. 3 bolts and a hose clamp on the inlet and another on the outlet hose. Disconnect the electrical plug from the pump and you can remove it from the machine for cleaning. A very easy job, requiring little skills and not much in terms of tools. (make sure machine is UNPLUGGED from AC outlet)
Remove obstruction(s) from pump and reinstall in reverse order of disassembly. The guy says these pumps are really tough so if you hear it buzzing, trying to go while it's jammed it's a good sign it will work. If not, replacement will be necessary.
Cost me $140. Could have been worse I suppose. Advise: Empty pockets BEFORE washing clothes...

It's an over load error. Don't put alot of laundry in the drum.
Copy and Paste from the service manual
- Motor overloaded due to too much laundry (Nonsensing)
- The motor hall sensor terminal is not connected.
- PBA fault
- The motor driving error from the PBA is weak.
: Unstable relay operation, etc.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
First is to empty the water out. This can be done by following my (complete) general guidance notes below for checking the drain motor lint tray/filter and the motor.
'nf' means NO FEED and what happened afterward indicates that the water feed control valve is malfunctioning, initially not opening for water to be fed but then sticking open.
So follow these notes, particularly those in capital letters, to find how to empty the washer, and to check the state of the filter which is needed on a regular basis anyway ;-0)
Next will be a call to a service engineer to sort out the suspect valve.Sorry ;-0(
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.
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!

E3 is an overload error
and indicates that the washer motor is not running properly. You can take out
some clothes and then restart the cycle by pressing the START/PAUSE button.
After this, if the error appears again then check the motor connections, if
everything appears fine then the motor should be replaced. Hope this
helps...please post back for further assistance.

Close the washer and press the START/PAUSE/Cancel
button to remove error displayed and restart the cycle. If it doesn't work, it means that
the valve at the water entry needs to be replaced..
Hope this helps..
