Error "E3" on a Bosch front loader means there is a problem with the door. Either it is not closed properly (user error or a blockage) or the locking mechanism has a fault. Check to see that there is no object shoved in the latch hole (our 2yo just did that) preventing the door from closing properly. If it is not that, a technician is advised. I tried to get into the machine to fix out issue but could not get to where the issue is.

Bosch Error Code E3 on a front loading washing machine is a door fault.. Check to make sure that the door is closed properly if this fails you could have a faulty door latch and will need someone to repair it.. Good luck

SOURCE: I have a bosch WFR 2460 washer. Er:15 error code.

You need to check and clean pump filter, normally located behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom front of washer right hand side.
If no filter found there remove rear panel of washer, and clean pump from rear of washer.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: I have E3 error code on a Bosch washing machine

"E3" on a Bosch Maxx means the door is not closed properly. Either there something preventing it from closing properly (blockage) or there is a fault with the locking mechanism.

SOURCE: Bosch 500 washer won't finish rinse cycle. Flashing error code13

Timed out on drain cycle, basically you either have an outlet blockage or something is trapped in the pump, you can check the pump by opening the bottom right flap on the front panel,manually emptying the w/m and checking the pump filter for coins etc. Also, check the outlet isn't blocked.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: We are getting error code E3. What does this mean

Looks like you have either a stuck drum (does not spin) or an electrical fault that make the washer think the drum is not moving.

From a 2006 Technical Bulletin:

E3: Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)

Specifically, it could be:

1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause.
2. Hall Sensor (integral part of motor) fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.

Unless you are really overloading your machine you likely have an electrical fault, or a failure in the drive train--especially if the problem is intermittent. Probably time to call in a technician.

The error code E3 means that the door isn't registering as closed, even if physically it is.
This is usually due to a faulty door interlock switch..
Check it physically to see if it has any heat damage or has come partially unplugged.

Error e3


Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that your Electrolux washer is displaying an "E3" error code while it is spinning. However, it appears "E3" is an invalid error code. It is possible that the error code is missing characters? I suggest resetting your washer. You can do this by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, and your washer continues to display "E3" I would recommend contacting a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

Never see the e3 error code

Service Manual for the FAV6800A/FAV9800A page 13 Google ""16022808.pdf"" to find.

error codes start on page 13. Any other info on the failure. Do you know what part of the machine wash cycle you were in with this error code.

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.
