Question about Washing Machines
CE refers to :-
CE communications - Error If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes and the unit beeps once.
Some common causes of "CE" errors include:
·Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.
· Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.
· Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a "CE" error will occur.
· Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
·Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
Check all the check points above mentioned. I believe the above one is self explanatory.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have seen shorts in the lower wire harness causing the board to blow, inspect or test for continuity in the lower harness. Also, see if the fuse is blown on the board, this will be because of a short. Let me know what you find.

CE error stands for “Communications Error” and refers to a broken
communication between the timer control board and the motor control unit.
If replacing the main control board did not help, then test wiring harness to motor control unit, and then test and eventually replace MCU.
There is a fuse on the motor control board and , if it blows the board may be faulty.
