Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but it's worth carrying this out anyway!)
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.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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!)
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.

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!

Have an E2 code on my Samsung washer and can't open the door... have tried to go through the rince again [8 minutes] but that didn't seem to help.. and so, HELP please


if there is still water in the washer then you can use awet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water. once the water is gone then you will be able to open the door.after that then you will need to check the drain hose for any obstuctions in the hoses or the drain pump itself

Samsung washer front load willnot rinse - no water coming out of hose to drain. E2 shows up


Hello,It is drain pump error. Possible solution:
• Clean the debris filter.
• Make sure the drainage hose is installed correctly.
If wont help you need to look in drain pump/wiring

Samsung b1215j code e2 lights up. any clues,


Lo M8

E2 code means it's not draining out the water properly
so look for a blockage at the pump
turn the power off to the machine
take the front bottom plastic cover off so you can access
the drain tube front right small plastic plug bout 13mm in size
get some towels and a shallow tray to catch the water
remove the small plug and drain the water ( takes age by the way )
once you've done that put the small plug back in
and then unscrew the black plastic ( they come in several colours )
pump access plug bout 50mm in size which is just to the left
of the drain tube ,, there may be a small amount of water left
in the pump but it won't be much
Once the pump access plug is removed look inside the hole
and see if you can see anything stuck in there most often
it's coins or other junk thats been left in pockets or very often
if you've kids it's going to be socks or other small clothing items
which have been sucked in to the pump
remove any blockages refit the pucp access plug
turn on the machine and put it thru a quick wash cycle
make sure it drains and spins out !!!! if not then repeat the above
procedure as you've got something else still stuck in there

good luck

E4 error after attempting to fill and get to temp


This is what I found for the E4 code...hope this helps...and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.


Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

Does not drain water and door does not open


Fault code E2 refers to a clogged drain pump.The drain pump needs to be cleared from kinks.Sometimes replaced if damaged due to the clogs.Please provide me the model number so that I can get more info regarding this and can provide you with some internal diagrams which will make it easy for you to locate the drain pump.
Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution if accepted.
