Door won't close/lock
Just had the same issue. The latch, which rotates up and forward, is spring-loaded towards the rear. If 'tripped' to closed position, it cannot rotate back down until it's carrier/hinge slides slightly forward. I bent a sturdy wire into a long 'U', then bent both ends down (~3/8in) and slightly outward to hook over the latch-hinges and pull both sides gently (its plastic) forward, while rotating the latch downward with a small screwdriver. be careful to keep what appears to be a brown plastic button raised, if it pops down from above the latch. Yes, having 4 hands would help, but the 'U' wire can pull from behind the two outer edges with one finger. Once the latch rotates down, release tension on the 'U' wire and extricate it - problem solved.

MY SAMSUNG WASHER HAS AN ERROR MESSAGE THAT SAYS E3 AND IT WONT SPIN
I did an internet search on your error code. I found the following for a 3E code (as opposed to the E3 code you mentioned)...I kept looking and eventually found something for E3:
3E code - Motor tacho fault detected
Can also be caused by be main PCB
If the motor tacho signals are inputted less than 2 for 2 seconds after main drive motor started, this error will occur.
- Check motor
- Check motor tacho
- Check all connections and blocks to the motor
- Check connections on the main control module
- Check main control module
The "E3" error indicates that a Samsung washer's motor is not running properly. The cycle can usually be restarted by pressing the "Start/Pause" button. However, if the error code appears again, you should contact an authorized service technician.
Hope this helps.

Model WF7700N6W1 - front loader - smell? Rubber seal inside door peels back a bit to reveal buildup of gunk between seal and inside frame? retaining water here?
Ok, nothing to worry about. You have bacteria growing in your machine. Clean out the slime from the door seal using a soft cloth and soapy water. DON'T use any harsh chemicals such as bleach !
Remove your detergent drawer (if possible) and clean it thoroughly - a dishwasher will do this very well. Disconnect your machine from the power supply and clean thoroughly inside the space where the dispenser drawer was, using a toothbrush or larger nylon brush and a soft, soapy cloth.
Using liquid detergents all the time can cause a build up of residue over time, which gives the bacteria and mould somewhere to grow. So try a hot wash cycle (without a load) using a powder detergent intended for whites. Washing powders contain brighteners and chemicals which are hostile to mould and bacteria.
Finally, leave your dispenser drawer and loading door open every night to allow fresh air to circulate through the entire machine. This will reduce the number of cleaning occasions needed.

Samsung WF337AA Front Loader
Hi Ya, I had exactly the same problem with my washer. 7E means that the water supply has stopped or is too weak. So I unscrewed the water hoses at the rear of the machine (turn water taps off first) and removed the little filters from the inlets on the machine by **** them out with a small screwdriver.. I then cleaned the filters out with a small brush and hot water, refitted them and HEY Presto!! All fixed.
Good Luck Greg NZ
