Question about Washing Machines
The machine control ("main computer board") is attempting to drive the motor but not detecting any tach response from it. The E3 fault code appears when the rotor or the drum is locked or the Hall Sensor is faulty. But the intermittent behavior of the problem suggests a loose wiring connection. Check the harness that connects the Hall Sensor and the motor to the machine control and make sure the connections are snug fit and not corroded. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connectors and terminals. Replace the wiring harness if necessary or if it is badly corroded.
Indicate the exact model number of the washer if the problem is not addressed above for further advice.
