My top loader washing machine shows SE. Please assist.

I has the same 5E mistake with my Samsung washing mashine.
5E looks like SE on the screen, but it is 5E.

This is what the manual says:
5E - Your washer is not draining. It can
also mean that the unit senses a
small clog while draining

Do the following:
1) Turn off the unit and turn it on again.
2) Select only the Spin Cycle.
3) Press the Start/Pause to drain the water.
If it still does not drain, call for service.

Wat is the SE or 5E stand for on the Samsung washer and dryer combo

The 5E code indicates a water drainage problem.
Check the pump filter for blockage and debris.
Check the drain hose and waste connection for kinks and blockage
After everything checks out, select the spin cycle to drain water

DW80F800. What does 5E error code indicate?

Hello. Straight out of the service manual for your dishwasher...the 5E error comes from the low level switch not being detected within 3 minutes during the drain cycle...possible causes...clogged drain line, broken wire on the drain pump, defective drain pump, bad ECS, bad main board--in that order. Absolutely make sure there isn't something jammed in the drain pump that could slow it down or jam the impeller. Also, those drain brakes can be a real problem with mold/mildew gumming up the inside--once mold grows in these things, you MUST replace it--I've tried the cleaning route--it just comes back. I hope this helps you.
drain pump--DD81-01527A
main control board--DD82-01139A

I have a Samsung front loader. It has been stopping with the error code 5E (filter problem ) for a few months now. Turning the machine off then on again after 20min gets it going again. The fault always...

The 5E error mean:
Pump won’t empty - not draining
As usual with these error codes for not draining the first thing to do is check the pump filter but, on Samsung washing machines, the drain pump itself is often faulty. You can find how to fix this problem on youtube, just text it "Samsung washing machine 5E error".

Did you leave out the complete model number?, If you haven't yet check your water supply, If you changed to or have the auto stop flood hoses some washers cause them to activate.
The wires may be disconnected on the water valve(s) or a valve went bad or the main board went bad, You can use a meter to check that there is voltage going to the valve(s) when you start a fill cycle, Also some washers use a flow meter that checks water flow.
