Washing machine would have moved due to uncontrolled spinning which came as result of overload! try unloading few clothes and make sure you washing machine is at level!

SOURCE: DOOR WONT OPEN

I'm afraid I don't have a solution, just the same problem. Exactly this has just happened to me and I don't know what to do. Calling out an engineer will be too expensive and in the mean time, I can't do any washing. Have you had any success yet?

SOURCE: door is locked

The first thing I would try (if you haven't already...?) is to "reboot" the machine by unplugging it and waiting about a minute or two. Then plug it back in. This should hopefully clear the computer from hanging in the same spot, not letting you get to your laundry. If not, if you have a manual handy, try looking for a master reset function. It usually consists of holding two or more buttons in for a few seconds to reset the computer warm.

I hope this helps! :)

4e on my samsung front load WF42H5000AW


A 4E code indicates your machine is not sensing that it is filling. The corrective action is to check that water supply is on and has adequate pressure, hoses are not kinked, and that filters on the inside end of the water valve are not clogged.

My washer gets a 4e message.we have checked the hoses cleaned out meshes.has real good water pressure.it gets the 4e only when it's fixing to wash. if I put it to rinse and spin it will.


Your washer should have a solenoid valve for the cold and hot water. The valves open to allow the water in the drum and will fill the washer according to the load being washed (small, med large, etc.) If the washer does not reach the required level in a measured amount of time, it displays the 4e code. It is possible that one of the solenoids is not completely opening, therefore restricting the flow.

Kenmore he4 error code 4E, Light is burnt out and just makes beepin noises, i have unpluged it what should i try next?


From what you described it sounds like the door switch is faulty. In the test mode when you saw the 4E you should also hear a beep when opening or closing the dryer door.
Here is a link to the replacement part.

Door wont open on washing machine zwf16581w at the end of the cycle


The door is designed to stay shut at the end of a cycle usually for about 4 minutes, even if you switch the machine off at the mains. Other than that you probably need a repair.

Washing machine not functioning...the service engineering has come and claims that the digital switch board is short circuited and gone and replacement would cost 2700/-Rs.....The machine stopped in...


Hi Nandita from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is a VERY difficult situation for us at FixYa to REMOTELY diagnose your symptoms. The service engineer is actually there looking at, and testing, the machine!
I will explain what the 4E and DE normally indicate and what normally to do about them ;-0)

4E Water supply error. (should clear pressing star/pause button if everything is OK)

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

'DE' stands for Door Error.(should clear once the door is closed properly)

There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(


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

2008 Samsung front end loader develops a 4E error


When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.


Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.
