5E is a Drain Error Code.

This can be caused by a clogged filter in the washing machine or a blocked drain line in your house. There can be a few other reasons, but these are the most likely.

If you would like to try to repair it yourself, then follow these instructions:

UNPLUG the washing machine. Repeat, UNPLUG the washing machine!!!

Check the filter in the back of the washing machine on the bottom right-hand corner. Place a shallow dish under the filter. Loosen the filter to drain out the water. Remove the filter and clean it out. Look at where you removed the filter and you will see the water pump impeller. Make sure it can move and isn't locked up. Remove any debris from the impeller.

Replace the filter, and plug in the machine. Try a short wash cycle.
Check for leaks around the filter.

use a putty knife to remove the front panel , you can remove it by pushing the putty knife into the 2 black tabs between the top and front panel. from there you can get to the drain pump . inspect by taking the hoses off the pump and remove debris. If nothing found replace the pump. hope this helps, let me know

Wat is the SE or 5E stand for on the Samsung washer and dryer combo


The 5E code indicates a water drainage problem.
Check the pump filter for blockage and debris.
Check the drain hose and waste connection for kinks and blockage
After everything checks out, select the spin cycle to drain water

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".

Samsung washing machines water drains continously


The drain hose is too low, you need to lift the height of the drain hose as it is siphoning and won't be able to fill to the required level.

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.
