Hi, when a dishwasher goes into overfill mode it usually means that the bottom tray has water in it that operates a float connected to a microswitch. Open the bottom panel and soak up all water then check to make sure the float is down completely.then restart dishwasher. Why it has overfilled is another problem. It could be a faulty pressure switch,pressure switch hose may have a hole in it, water valve may be faulty. Too much soap or wrong soap can cause too many suds and hence overfill.Also if rinse aid is spilt when filling. Or seals leaking. etc.

hi Judi.
this is what i found.

If your Samsung washing machine is displaying a E4/error code on the control panel after completing the spin cycle and the clothes are still wet, we've got the solution for you. This fault is most commonly caused by an unbalanced washing machine load.

Samsung trouble shooting

The E4 is an error code. What the washing machine "is trying to communicate" to you is that it has detected a load imbalance at the clothes being washed; thus it won't be able to spin at full speed. Maybe it stops waiting for you to distribute the clothes more evenly. See more about error codes at

Error code FL flashes and my calypso washer keeps beeping. Won't start just shows the code.

FL error - Flood condition

"FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lock condition in order for "FL" to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Hope this helps.

E4 is an error code indicating a problem with the water inlet valve or the electronics that control the inlet valve. Error codes do not necessarily indicate the problem directly.

Here is the service manual (with diagnostic procedures) for your machine:

Hoover HNL7166 'Start Delay' light flashing

Hoover (Nextra series) washing machines

The 'Start' & 'Pause' LED's will flash together to indicate the error code. You have to count the flashes within each 15 second period to get that error code. The start and the pause LED's will flash together at 1Hz (i.e 1 flash per second) within that 15 second time frame, then will continue and show again within another 15secs and so on.

1 Flash = Interlock fault
2 Flashes = Fill time-out
3 flashes = Drain time-out
4 flashes = Overfill fault presure pipe blocked
5 flashes = NTC error
6 flashes = faulty control board
7 flashes = Motor jammed
8 flashes = Tacho fault
9 flashes = Motor triac on module board
10 flashes = Prog Selector or wiring fault

Sounds as though the drain is blocked partially. E4 is the overfill code. Try cleaning out the drain.
