You get an error if there is something wrong with your machine, now that your washer drum doesn't turn and you are hearing a noise, the possible cause is that the belt alreadi slipped out, if you have the access of opening the back panel where you can see the inner part of the machine, try to replace yoour belt with a new one and install it, it is easy, it only take an adjustment of the bolts and screw, try not to tighten it too much.., make a little loose so that the belt can play.

How do I fix error 3 on front load washer


I recently had an E3 code appear on my Samsung B1445V washing machine. It appeared after I started a Quick Wash, it would fill with water then stop - the E3 code would later appear. Prior to it breaking down, it was making loud creaking noises for several months beforehand so it wasn't a surprise when it gave up on me.

It turned out that the drive belt had worn out and snapped. The drive-belt connects the motor and the drum wheel (similar to a fan belt in a car). When it broke the flapping belt also cut through several wires of the electrical loom from the motor. Fortunately they were colour coded and I was able to repair these.

After much searching on the Internet, I found a new genuine Samsung 1270 J5 Drive Belt on eBay for £8.44. I had it shipped out by first class post and it arrived the next day.

Extra information: '1270' is the length of the belt in millimetres, I'm not sure what 'J5' means. You might also see these belts advertised as a 1270 Poly-V drive belt - this is also ok. It's called 'Poly-V' because the belt has 'v' shaped teeth on the inside which fit in the cog of the motor spindle so it doesn't slip off. I noticed a lot of these belts were interchangeable between different manufacturers - just make sure it's the correct length '1270mm' and has several 'v' shaped teeth on the inside.

After fitting the belt (very easy - took less than 5 mins and tutorials on YouTube if required), I manually span the drum several times to make sure the belt remained on. I then tried a Spin Cycle and it worked perfectly. I felt a bit smug after as I did consider buying a new washing machine...I saved myself £££'s by fixing it.

If you do try this yourself, here's a few pointers:

1) Drain the machine on 'Drain' cycle. Unplugged from the socket and remove all hoses at rear. With a bowl handy, at the bottom right front of the machine, twist and pull out the small drain hose and remove remaining water. Then twist and pull out the filter - more water may come out.

2) Carefully turn the washing machine upside down. On the bottom there is a white cardboard liner held on by 2 screws, remove these. The electric motor is now visible.

3) Visually inspect the motor spindle to make sure the old drive belt is not tangled around the spindle. Also check the electrical wires from the motor to make sure they're not damaged.

4) It's a confined space to work in so be careful not to scratch and cut yourself on sharp metal parts inside. Place the new belt over the motor spindle then half over the drum wheel. Rotate the drum wheel and the drive belt will slip on by itself. Once it is fully on, spin the drum several times by hand from the inside to make sure the belt remains attached.

5) Put the bottom cardboard line back, turn it upright then reattached the hoses etc. Plug it back in and run a 'Spin' cycle to test.

Good luck.

It probably needs a belt. It may have been slipping so much with the bigger loads that now it is shiny

Washing machine wont spin the water out.


IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT YOU HAVE A BAD OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH. THE MACHINE WILL NOT GO INTO A HIGH SPEED SPIN IF THE SWITCH IS BAD.
