Question about Samsung Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Samsung 13kg fully automatic washing machine WA13V5. It gave an error message 5E and stopped working. The book says the error message stands for the water does not drain. The filters are clean. What can the problem be? Could it be the pump? How can I test it? Thanks

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
To test the pump see near the end ------->

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the 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!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I want to know what de code stands for on a SAMSUNG WA13F5S2UWW 13KG WH T LOADER Washing Machine


The error code is presented when a "child lock" error has occurred--you will see either "CL" or "DE". You can clear the error after the washer drains. This error condition prevents a child from drowning if he or she should fall into the tub. After the washer drains and the alarm has sounded, close the door, turn the power off, then back on. This instruction set comes straight out of the user manual. This user manual can be found at http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201408/20140828102900808/F500S_GOOD_DC68-03273M-02_EN_FA_NQ_20140512.pdf

I have a Samsung front loader. It has been stopping with the error code 5E (filter problem ) for a few months now. Turning the machine off then on again after 20min gets it going again. The fault always...


Hello,
The 5E error mean:
Pump won’t empty - not draining
As usual with these error codes for not draining the first thing to do is check the pump filter but, on Samsung washing machines, the drain pump itself is often faulty. You can find how to fix this problem on youtube, just text it "Samsung washing machine 5E error".
