I have this problem frequetly - it's an easy one to fix! Just press the programme button which changes the programme setting you want (on my built-in GSX4756 it's the last button on the right) and keep it pressed in until the beeping stops. Then start it again (will probably be on the rinse programme if it's like mine).

SOURCE: i am recieving an SE

I'm getting the same message too. I turned it off for awhile and I had a technician come out and take a look. My drainage pipes are all clear (SE code can mean that drainage is not working properly). He suggested that I get a "Samsung" tech out to take a look at the circuit board/electrical issue. Want to know the crazy thing? This is my second dishwasher that Samsung replaced....all the same electrical issue.....and just last week someone called me to see if I wanted to buy an extended warranty on it. Hmmmm.....do they know that this a piece of junk? It was an expensive dishwasher too.....doesnt clean any better than my cheap model did and it sure has a lot more problems in this first year than the whole 5 years that I had my other dishwasher. Can you tell im disgruntled?
I would love to hear if there is a simple fix to this SE problem.

SOURCE: SE error code on Samsung dishwasher

5E code. If your dishwasher has been running fine for awhile then throws a 5E code chances are it could be the pump or a blocked hose or filter but chances are its not. 1. Does the code come on after it has gone through the wash cycle and released the soap dispenser? or 2. Does the code show afer 1 or 10 minutes of running without the wash cycle completing, soap dispenser still closed?
Number 1 is easy to check just diconnect the drain hose and run the hose into a bucket to see if the hose or filter is clogged or pump is working. These machines only use about 2 gallons of water and the pressure is very low its easy to do in a bucket. If number 2 occurs, its not a clogged hose or filter or pump issue the machine is not even cycling.
If number 1 checks out ok you have water flow but shuts down and number 2 has occured, its your Case Level Sensor its the electronic solid state float, DD94-01006A its either sticking due to water impurities or its bad.
Its actually pretty easy to trouble shoot or fix. You have two choices but the machine has to come out. The sensor is located behind a metal plate on the lower left side ofthe machine. You can;t miss it it looks like a float, has a black float inside a clear plastic housing and some wires going to it. You can pull it out and clean it (The float should go up and down with no sticking at all). Or just buy a new one $35.00ish and put in. Also check the inlet hose to the float make sure its clear and clean DD67-0057A.
There is one catch to this that can cause lots of grief if ANY water at all comes out of the float while changing it. If any water gets in the bottom of the catch basin underneath, the very very sentive probes will detct it and throw a LE code and the washer will not work. that is not a big deal just need to pull the basin off and dry it out. The smallest amount of water can cause the sensors to react since its a protection system.
Samsung dishwashers are very quite and wash extremely well but there technology and engineering sucks along with their warrenty and repair manuals there are no manuals for the home owner or much for the repair guy.
That float will have problems again and again and again either its dirty or broken and will cause another 5E code situation.
Side note; food grinders in a dishasher are stupid! All dishes places in a dishwasher should be rinsed! A domestic dishwasher should not be used as a disposal. It makes your house stink and tons of bad bacteriea will grow in places you do not want it to, not to mention they are not made to work like you would think.
Best dishwasher with the least trouble, easy to fix, easy to dignose, easy to work on, good manuals, few problems, good warrenty, best built, quite running, washes great, very well engineered is BOSCH.

How to fix samsung dishwasher code se


The code is 5E
If your dishwasher is displaying error code 5E, It can be caused by a kinked drain hose.
If the drain hose is kinked, there will be an excessive amount of water in the bottom of your dishwasher after a cycle has been completed.
In order to access the drain hose you need access to the back of the dishwasher. If your dishwasher was recently installed, contact the installer to move the dishwasher and inspect the drain hose.
If the drain hose is not kinked, but your dishwasher is still not draining, service is required.

Fixing 5E or SE error code on Samsung model Dishwasher


Our 13 month and very expensive Samsung dishwasher model DW80F800UWS stopped working and displayed error code 5E or SE if you don\'t know they all start with a number (which I did not). After 2 weeks of pain with "repair man" an fixed it myself and I wanted to share my success story.



This dishwasher uses an optical sensor to detect how much water is in the tub body. Older dishwashers use a simple float but Samsung had issues with these sticking open so they must have switched to the solid state sensor at some point. Believe it or not if the sensor gets dirty with gunk from food the sensor false reads that there is still water in the tub and shuts down with error code 5E. The sensor is removed from the right side access panel (when looking at the machine from the front. Its a small round clear plastic sensor held in with black plastic clip. Take it out and clean off the gunk. Re-install and wham bam thank you mam!! Your wife will think your a genius!! total cost of repair is Zero...yes that right ZERO!



Part number for this sensor is DD32-00003A and you can use the Sears website to see the diagram and location. Here is the link

I wish I would have done my homework first as I had a failed service call before I fixed it myself! Cost me some money I hope others can avoid!

Samsung Dishwasher model DW80F800UWS with Error code 5E or "SE" error code.


The 5E error code on this Samsung dishwasher means a drain error. Most often this is caused by a clogged drain hose, or some foreign object getting caught in the drain pump impeller. But it can also mean you have a bad ECS sensor. If this is Greek to you, then you should probably call a professional dishwasher repairman.

Dishwasher goes to se display during cycle


That's actually a 5E error code. The 5E error code on most Samsung dishwashers means a drain error. Most often this is caused by a clogged drain hose, or some foreign object getting caught in the drain pump impeller. But it can also mean you have a bad ECS sensor if the drain pump and hose are okay.

Samsung error 5e


The SE (or actually 5E) error code means "drain error". Most often, this is caused by a blocked or clogged drain hose, or something hard getting inside the drain pump that is blocking or impeding the free operation of its impeller. If all that is okay, then you may have a bad ECS sensor.

What does samsung dishwasher error code se


SE (or 5E) on a Samsung DishWasher means Drain Error - Water not draining. Check the drain pump and drain hose for an obstruction; If that's okay, you will probably need to replace the ECS sensor.

Machine stops with SE code


That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage
