Although error codes for Samsung washing machines are typically standardised display schemes do differ considerably depending on the model. Modern machines come equipped with numeric error codes that display when a fault is detected. Error codes that start with the letter E generally refer to old models of Samsung washers.
Some codes may be listed as a group if they describe a fault related to several components that may all cause the same issue – although the exact causes of the fault may differ. Even if you don’t have the skills or the equipment to deal with any problems it’s helpful to know where the problem may lie when you speak to your appliance repair engineer.

Samsung digital inverter washing machine error codes
Digital inverter technology uses strong magnets to reduce friction in the motor, resulting in a much quieter and smooth-running appliance. Samsung Ecobubble washing machine error codes and Samsung Diamond washing machine error codes are covered by the guide below. This is only a small insight into the range of error codes – for more detailed information you should consult your manufacturers manual.
Samsung washing machine error code CE
This error code indicates that there’s a communication error between the machine control circuit board and the motor control circuit board. This may result in a water cool down issue where the temperature of the water doesn’t drop below 55 degrees Celsius during the 30 minutes after the programme has ended. The water supply will need to be checked prior to inspection of other parts.
Samsung washing machine error code Sud
When the suds are excessive during the washing cycle this is the error code that will display. The reasons for abnormal foaming include using a detergent that doesn’t suit the appliance or using too much detergent. Alternatively, this fault could result from poor water drainage, a broken pressure switch or foam level sensor. You’ll need to get in touch with a repair engineer to investigate these issues for you.
Samsung washing machine error code 4E/4C
This is a problem related to the water supply and will be displayed after around 10 minutes into the programme when the appliance detects that water is not filling the unit. Water pressure may be an issue here, alongside water inlet filters and valves not functioning properly.
The hose from the drum to the sensor may be split, cracked, or kinked blocking the water flow. And the water level sensor could be malfunctioning. Other culprits could be related to an open circuit or a faulty controller. Any defective components will need to be expertly repaired or replaced.
Samsung washing machine SE/5E error code
This indicates a water drainage issue where water is unable to drain from the appliance. This could be caused by a variety of problems – the drainage pump filter can become blocked with lint, the drain hose and waste connection pipes may be damaged or obstructed. A blockage of the sump hose may be due to a sock or small item of clothing getting stuck.
If your machine is brand new you need to determine that the plastic cap blocking the drain pipe spigot has been removed.
