SOURCE: Samsung front load washer keeps getting E7 and E3

E3 - MICOM is attempting to drive the motor but is not getting any
response signals from the hall sensor. Visual check shows
motor is not running. (Locked, Defective Hall Sensor or
Overload)

Im not locating an E7 error. Did you mean 7E?

This information may or may not relate to your washer since you did not provide a model number.

SOURCE: At the middle of my load there was stop with code symbol E3

E3 is that the machine can't see that the motor is spinning. Could either be a loose connector at the motor or a loose hall-effect sensor. this might be a fairly easy fix for a repair tech,

SOURCE: 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.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. There are many causes of Error 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.

3. A poor connection – Check wire harness connector to motor. Unplug connector and pull on each wire. If a wire connector comes loose from the plug, bend locking tab up as illustrated.

NOTE: If a locking tab is not properly seated in the plug connector, the terminals will not fully engage as the connector is plugged into the Motor Terminal Block. Inspect the terminals on the motor side of the connector. Straighten any bent terminals if they exist. Recheck the harness side of the terminal block if any bent terminals are found. Bent terminals can indicate a problem with the locking tab inside the plug. Reconnect harness plug to Motor Terminal Block. Run washer through a quick service cycle (wash and spin) to check motor operation. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: my 27 inch front load

unplug and remove rear access panel to the motor pulley,remove the 6 3/8 inch bolts and the large center bolt holding the stator brake cover on,unplug the "Hall-Sensor" at the bottom of the stator,it has a plug with 4 wires coming out of it,this component senses motor speed and tells the computer how fast and which direction of motor rotation,when this component goes defective it tells the computer the motor isnt turning and is locked,replace it and it again will work

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

Maytag may8700aww washer with e3 code


This worked for me for the E3 error code: Turn the machine off and then on. Enter the Service Mode by pressing the Chime and Exrta Rinse keys for 3 sec. Display the Diagnostic Codes by pressing the Rinse and Spin key. Clear the codes by pressing the Delay and Chime keys for 3 sec. Turn the machine off, unplug and plug in the power cord. This dumps the memory. Evidently, if it gets full, it causes problems with the programming and messes up the cycles.
