Does anyone know how much it costs to fix a samsung dishwasher that shows e3 code? Is it a big fault or simple fix?


you may have a problem on the draining system. Previous cycle not fully drained and holding off the new cycle.
remove the drain line from its discharge position and hook up a 5 gal container for it to drain in ( maintaining the necessary height for the anti syphon loop )
Select programme 7 which should allow the drain pump to kick in straight away
You should be able to hear the pump running at the bottom of the machine and observe a discharge from the hose.
The chances are the pump needs removing and cleaning.
or - the drain line where the machine discharges is backing up and not allowing a free discharge.

My dishwasher(samsung DW7933LRABB) wont fill, it will drain if i put water in the tub. supply is on.


You either have a bad water valve, or a bad case-brake assembly (in which case you should have an error code or blinking light on your console).

You may need to check the drain valve at the bottom of washer for blockages. Pull the chord at the base and let water drain out into a flat tray with towels around. Then open the drain valve to check blockages. Usually pieces of wire and hair clips and coins.
Try to run a rinse cycle after shutting the door. See if it clears the water.

Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Samsung 'LE' decodes as 'natural drain/water leak error' whatever that means!

Drum not filling up with water, it's draining straight out.


That means that the drain pump is always on.
That can happen because of a faulty or stuck water level switch (the one with floating sensor), because of a faulty drain pump solenoid, or because of a faulty pump.
