Ok, this can be alot of things. What I would do is take the rear vent off and check inside to make sure an animal did not get in it and die. This would be the most likely cause as you said it sat in a garage for a few days. I would re-wash any clothes that were dried in it to be safe. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a Samsung WDJ1255C Washer Dryer. I recently moved and had the machine unplugged for about a week. I turned it back on today and it's giving me an E13 error message. Can you please help?! Ghana...


unplug for 5 minutes or switch off the breaker switch for five minutes. if the five minute reset doesn't restore the machine your MCB could be stuffed

DRYER RUNS, BUT WILL NOT HEAT


Do you have fuses or breaker? If you have fuses one fuse may be burnt out.

Refrigerator/Freezer not getting cold


Is the fan on the condenser coils spinning? (back side of unit behind the bottom access panel.)

If it is not, the heat extracted from the fresh food/freezer compartments is not being sufficiently dissipated.

As a short-term fix, you can aim a box fan (a regular ol' room/window fan) at the condenser coils.

Error when turning on machine.


I have a feeling that this has something to do with software on the hard drive. Either the software needs to be restored on it or it could have crashed. A Konica/Minolta dealer in your area should be contacted to send a technician out to look at the situation.
