Error codes


Samsung Washer Fault Codes
4E WATER SUPPLY ERROR Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.
5E WATER DRAIN ERROR 5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drainerror can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
oE OVER-FLOW ERROR Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.
UE UNBALANCE ERROR Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.
HE WATER HEATER ERROR HE, HE1 is displayed if the water temperature rises by 7 C or more in 1 Min or by 2 C or less 20 Min after heating process has started. The error can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF.
1 E WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR * Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz High Level = 15.00 Khz

If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is aPRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.
cE ABNORMAL WATER TEMPERATURE ERROR e.g. If the water temperature is 50 C or more, during a Delicate or Wool cycle.

At the time of initial water supply, if the water temperature is not appropriate, the display will show cE. This error can be cleared by POWER SWITCH OFF.
11 E WATER LEAKAGE ERROR Water Leakage error occurs when the water drains naturally, (by leakage) after the washing program starts.
tE THERMISTOR ERROR This error occurs when the Thermistor circuit is abnormal or a voltage of O.2v or below or, 4.5v and over is detected. This error can be cleared by POWER switch OFF.
3E MOTOR RESTRICTION ERROR Hall Sensor is sensed every 5OOms. 1 second after motor starts to work.

If data of hall sensor is less than 2 (2RPM), the Washing motor will stop at once.

During Washing and Rinsing when a motor restriction is sensed, the motor stops and then proceeds to the next water -flow action. If the motor stops working and this happens in one direction ten times, "3E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating. when a motor restriction is sensed. the motor stops working and then returns to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing cycle. After ten times, "3E" Error isdisplayed, When the motor Is told to stop because of an operating function. no error is shown.

Power 81W OFF can clear the motor restriction error.
8E OVER CURRENT ERROR IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).

IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.

If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.

If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

My washer tub acts as if the load is unbalanced . but i tried it empty it does it also. it worked fine before we moved this week model number LAT 7304AAE


Does it start at all or go into unbalance straight away? It is possible that the lever which engages the unbalance/lid switch has come out of the switch mechanism and it is continually indicating unbalance even when there is nothing wrong. The easiest way to check is to undo the two screws on the front and remove the panel by pulling the bottom forward, then undo the two 10mm bolts inside underneath the top panel. You can then lift up the top panel and reach the lid/unbalance switch and check that the metal lever is properly activating the switch.

What's the purpose of the tub displacement sensor


To detect excessive wash tub movement and shut down the wash cycle. Here is a copy of my post from a real DIY forum;

Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down.


Here ya go.....in this post I discuss the issue related to unbalance error codes DC and UC;

Your FAV6800A or FAV9800A is going off balance with DC or UC unbalance error codes during spin cycle and you see/hear the wash tub banging around at the start of Spin Cycle of the wash cycle or a Spin Only cycle. If this is the condition the TDS (Tub Displacement Sensor) is working as designed and signaling the Control Board properly of an unbalance wash load condition.

The Control Board receives a varying D.C . Voltage from the TDS sensor and if the out of range D.C. Voltage limit continues the Control Board will halt the Spin Cycle and try to redistribute the wash load. If you are interested I will show you how to monitor the TDS input to the Control Board with a DVM.


The Control Board then starts the Spin Cycle again. If the wash tub/basket out of balance condition continues the Control Board will attempt another redistribute of the wash load. After several attempts (4 to 5 I believe) the Control Board will shut down the Spin Cycle and send a error code DC or UC to the LED display of the FAV6800A, my machine type. And I believe a text statement to the LCD screen of the FAV9800A machine i.e. something like "Unbalance Condition" I'm not sure what the text message is.


If you need help open a post in that repair forum and I will try help you through your issue.

Getting a UE code on LG front load washer


Hello there
The UE ERROR CODE
UE - Unbalance switch error Unbalanced load is sensed three times during a spin operation. Open lid. Rebalance laundry load and close lid.
· Check wiring harness
· Check unbalance switch
· Check circuit board Normally this turns out to be the unbalance switch that has failed and needs to be replaced so i would have this checked first.
If you have a warranty on this machine still you should be able to use it ok?
Hope this is very helpful or you.
Best regards Mike

I have a KENMORE WASHER MODEL 11020894990.The slow spin comes on and works fine but when it stops to begin the faster spin it makes a klunk klunk noise and will not spin.


Well the klunk-klunk is the Break grabbing, to stop it, as it is detecting, what it thinks, is some sort of Unbalance or Overload, or detecting a motor fault, etc, real or not, and is shutting itself down because of this.

My duet washer wont work it is lit at control locked whats this mean


A sensor inside has probably detected a problem. Usually it has something to do like too long to drain(something in pump) or suds detect (wrong/too much detergent) unbalance/overload), Motor sensor error and stuff like that. I have a manual HERE

My Maytag Neptune TL FAV6800AW Washing Machine is receiving the dC error code on every load. It sits at 12 minutes remaining and attempts to spin several times before throwing the codes.


Hello zacas6,

dC/uC unbalance errors are caused almost all the time by a Clutch malfunction. Take a look this post and see if you want to DIY the repair. I will help you through the process.

I would also check the Tub Displacement Sensor. This a thru the lid check and you get a feel of how to enter Service Mode.

Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.
It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.


a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”


b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.


c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


e. Press Hand Wash.


f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


I have some additional info if you decide to remove the Clutch in the machine if you are going to DIY.

Squeeking and banging and LL display code


Run the machine through the cycles without anything in it. If it still does it, lift the top and look down between the basket and the tub for any objects that might have jumped out of the basket and into the space. Fish out anything that's in there. If there is nothing in that space, you need to either tighten or replace the snubber. It's a piece of rubber, held against the tub by a piece of metal. It keeps the tub from bouncing around.
