Got a 3E Error on Washer/How do you "POWER 81W OFF?"

I have searched through this site and found that I can reset my Samsung Washer motor by trying a "POWER 81W OFF." I have no idea how to do this. What is "81W" and how do I access it? (I cannot find a service technician in my region, so I will have to attempt to fix/replace the motor myself.)

Please check if there is power to the motor during the cycle or if the motor is warm. If so the capacitor to the motor can be faulty as it fails to start.
If there is no power to the motor then the control panel is faulty as the relay or drive has failed within.

Samsung front loader washer Model: WF306LAW


The "3E" error code indicates that a high current is detected.
A "3E" error in a Samsung washer indicates that there is an issue with the motor. Restarting the cycle may clear the error, but a service technician should be consulted if the error code appears again.
