Here are the error codes from Samsung's website:

Error Codes spacer.gif If your dishwasher is displaying an error code, please refer to your users manual for an explanation. If you don't have your users manual on hand, you can download it from Samsung's Download Center. To go to the Download Center and download the users manual for your dish washer, click here.
Common error codes caused by installation errors are:

  • 5E which indicates a kinked or bent drain hose
  • 4E which indicates that the water supply valve is closed or not fully open
  • LE which indicates a leak.
I hope that this helps!

SOURCE: My Samsung DMR57 Dishwasher gives me error code

Our unit started displaying code 9E after filling, draining and filling again. At the beginning it was enough just to restart it. Finally this trick didn't work anymore. Before calling service for out of warranty I decided to take the unit out of the cabinet and start it. Of course this didn't fixed the problem. Then i noticed where the water comes in and I took off the panel on the left side bottom. 366571e.jpg
Under the panel there is a white box that has a floater inside. The floater is pushing a lever that actuates a micro switch. I noticed that the lever wasn't moving as the machine started to fill in with water. The lever was stuck. An easy touch on the lever fixed the problem and the machine started working. 677e4ea.jpg
I will put back the washer for now but if it happens again in the next future i'll have to find a more permanent fix.

Most common error codes that are caused by installation errors are:

  • 4E. If your dishwasher is displaying error code 4E, it can be caused by the water supply valve. The water supply valve may be closed, or not fully open. Most water supply valves are not frequently opened or closed. Because of this, they may be difficult to turn. To make sure this is not your issue, turn the supply valve to the fully closed position, clockwise, and then turn the valve to the fully open position, counterclockwise.
    • Check your water pressure. Your dishwasher requires a minimum of 20 psi and a maximum of 120 psi.
    • Water filtration info.

Where is the distributary valve?


that is a very good question
i cant find a "distributary valve" for sale

lots of water inlet valves hot and cold single units


almost every dishwasher user manual and has code e8 mentioned and faulty distributary valve

why the fault
.If the distributary valve have worked for 150
seconds, and could not reach right
position during wash cycle,after the cycle is finished, the dishwasher will shut off all
loads, the alarm buzzer will ring for 30 seconds and the window will display "E8" at rate
of 1Hz in 30 seconds, and then display "E8" , drain water for 2 minutes meanwhile

Error code E8 appears mid wash, heater is working ok, machine has been hooked up to the hot water instead of cold. I have since directed cold water through water valve.


hot water form the house takes less power to bring up to machine temperature so by hooking it to cold water will increase the power consumption
call a service center and get the explanation for the error codes and that will explain what is faulty
you didn't mention the make and model of the unit and every error code appears different
for example in a fulgor milano machine code 8 is failure of orientation of distributary valve ===causes open circuit or break of distributary valve
for hoover nextra e8 is dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element===causes check water heating element/wiring--check wiring to main control module
go google and type in-- dishwashing machine error code 8-- and see if there is any site for your machine to get the error code and causes
other than that get in a service technician for a correct diagnosis and fix

Why is my machine not spinning


Well, it would help to know the make and model... on a Samsung the E8 code means the water hoses are connected to the wrong taps (i.e. the hot hose is hooked to the cold tap and vice-versa).

If it's not a Samsung, please provide more info.

Thank would guide me about this problem: my freezer frigidaire ffu17f5hwd tells me E8, referred this error


Good Afternoon edgar corro, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code "E8". An "E8" error code typically stands for a shorted thermistor this could be a possible miscommunication with the wiring harness, control board, or thermistor. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would suggest contacting a professional technician since they have the appropriate tools to pinpoint the parts needed for repair. Best of luck! -Matt

HOW TO FIX LE ERROR CODE ON SAMSUNG DISHWASHER DMR78AHS


An LE error code on your dishwasher stands for "LEaking."

There is, what I call, a drip pan on the bottom that the water is dripping into. Remove your dishwasher and take off the lower the side panels to get a look inside the drip pan. If you have water in there, try to find out where it's coming from.

If there are no signs of water, tip the dishwasher over on its side and remove the plastic panel on the bottom of the dishwasher. Once removed, you can disconnect the connector to the leak sensor (it's mounted upside-down, with 4 wires coming out of it. If I remember right, the wires are blue and red).

Flip the dishwasher back upright and plug it in and see if your LE error code pops back on. If it pops back on, then you have a bad board. If it doesn't, then you either have a leak, or the "fangs" on the leak detector are shorting out, somehow.

Good luck!

DWF614SS smeg dishwasher E8 error code


Thanks to hijoloo for pointing me in the right direction. The offending part is the diverter valve, a paddle inside blocks one of two outlets in turn actuated by a micro switch, a motor and reduction gears. Check switch for continuity with multimeter (ohms) then check motor and gears turn freely by hand. My problem was a stiff paddle due to limescale. Soak in boiling water to free off then oil cog (externally) and rebuild.
turn the washer on its side and open up the bottom black plastic plate, than disconnect the two black hoses from the white pumphouse in the middle of the washer. disconnect the connector and open carefully the housing by removing two screws and the motor. check the switch and clean the white housing. Check also if there is nothing inside the rotorhouse. after this build every thing back and hope that its running. it worked for me. succes!
