Error e3


Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that your Electrolux washer is displaying an "E3" error code while it is spinning. However, it appears "E3" is an invalid error code. It is possible that the error code is missing characters? I suggest resetting your washer. You can do this by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, and your washer continues to display "E3" I would recommend contacting a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

I got an E3 flashing, what does that mean. The


Okay; This will essentially be a Hall Sensor fault. The Error code (E3) Is issued when the Motor control board is attempting to drive the motor (during the spin out), but is not seeing any tachometer response readings. The Hall sensor monitors such movements to relay the necessary rotation information to the Motor control board. When the Hall malfunctions, the MCB will assume that the motor is "locked" and it will issue the (E3) code.

The necessary actions are to replace the Hall sensor. Here is a picture of the Stator(Motor) and Hall sensor.

Click here to access the service/repair manual for your unit. This manual will help you disassemble the affected area. You will first need to remove the rear access panel, before gaining access to the affected section. Once the rear panel is removed, focus on page 33-34 to help with removing the stator so that you can replace the damaged hall sensor. Please allow time for the manual to download, due to its size.

  • Once you have replaced the defective Hall sensor, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

E3 code error.


“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

Pitney Bowes Copier - C180 - Error E3


Sorry it took so long. Your copier probably is similar to a Toshiba E series. The error code is paper jammed in the bypass section.

Use this link as a lookup to the error codes

Use 4501 under Toshiba to find the error codes.
