Samsung Washer Error Code 3E, 3E1, 3E2, 3E3, 3E4

Error code meaning: Motor defect

The Samsung Washer Error Code 3E and its variants (3E1, 3E2, 3E3, 3E4) typically indicate a motor defect. Here are steps to troubleshoot and potentially address this issue:

  1. Restart the Washer: Begin by turning off the washer and unplugging it from the power source. Wait for a few minutes, then plug it back in and restart the machine. Sometimes, this can clear minor glitches.
  2. Check for Overloading: Overloading the washer can strain the motor. Make sure you’re not overloading the machine with too many clothes or heavy items.
  3. Inspect the Drum: Ensure there are no foreign objects, like small articles of clothing or loose items, stuck in the drum that could obstruct its movement.
  4. Run a Spin Cycle: Start a spin cycle to check if the drum spins smoothly. If you notice any unusual noises or resistance, it may indicate a motor problem.


If the error code persists after attempting the above steps, it’s recommended to contact Appliance Repair Los Angeles at 323-792-1970. Our expert technicians can diagnose and address motor-related issues with your Samsung washer efficiently.
