3E == overcurrent detected at the motor.

Open the control panel, there you will find a tech sheet that explains how to put the machine into service mode and what to do while in service mode to track this down. Once on service mode, you can cycle through and retrieve all diagnostic codes. You will also find serveral other diagnostic service notes. Read them and follow the instructions to test the motor, motor control, and main control board.

Washer fault code 3E what does it mean


during washing and rinsing when a motor restriction is sensed, the motor stops and then proceeds

to the next waterflow action. if the motor stops working and this happens in one direction 10 times,

the error code 3e will be displayed.you should be able to clear the error code by turning your washer

off and on. or powering it down and then powering it back up. good luck!

As soon as the machine is on an error message of 3E appears and the machine stops


3E - MOTOR RESTRICTION ERROR
Hall Senior 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 is displayed, 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.
