Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

My samsung front loader wf7708n6w washer is displaying an error message 5e. I have drained the machine numerous times, and checked the debris filter but there is nothing there. The red coloured drain pump bit will spin, but not freely, and when the cycle runs there is a tapping noise when it gets to drain, i think there may be something semi blocking the pump. Can you advise if this is somethign i can access myself?

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".

Samsung p1453 will not drain or spin


5E (or SE error) is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle.

The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

7kg 1045 front loader, says SE or 5E wont drain, will open fill and wash but not draining


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
5E is a water drain error and occurs when the water level frequency does not show changes. First clean the debris filter located at the bottom of the washer and then turn the unit back on after 15 minutes. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Samsung B1245 front loader


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.
