Samsung washer 2E error code is found mainly in old-generation machines (until 2007). It appears as a sudden stop of the equipment during washing or rinsing – at the moment of transition to the next stage.
What does error 2E mean?
She talks about the problem of draining water. Therefore, the washing machine turns off either before rinsing or before spinning, without completing the previous step. It means that:
- clogged, bent, or squeezed hose;
- the pump does not work;
- the drain pump filter is dirty;
- sewage is clogged;
- water in the washing machine froze (when it is at sub-zero temperatures in an unheated room);
- the pipe is clogged;
- there is no communication between the pump and the control module;
- the mainboard is out of order.
What to do?
In most cases, the 2E error code is easy to fix on your own. To do this, you must:
- restart the washing machine – unplug the cord from the outlet and disconnect it for 5-10 minutes, and then turn it on again so that it starts self-diagnosis and clears the error;
- check the hose – remove blockages, straighten kinks, eliminate squeezing;
- clean the filter – remove it by opening the compartment on the front of the case (usually in the lower right corner), wipe it with a brush, rinse and return it to its place;
- blow through the pipe – a short tube connecting the flexible hose to the outlet;
- restore the contact – insert the terminals into the sockets on the connection segment of the pump and the control module so that 2E error does not occur;
- to melt ice – move the washing machine to a warm room.
What to do in more severe cases?
In some situations, when Samsung had her 2E error code appears, you can try to carry out a feasible repair yourself. But if the problem is capital, it is better to contact the service department.
Drain hose blockage
Sometimes the hose cannot be cleaned due to sticky dirt that has accumulated during plaque accumulation during prolonged use, narrowing the duct and causing error code 2E. This element is easily changed. It costs about 5 $ -7 $ depending on the absence or presence of a plastic retainer.
He, too, needs to be changed. The new pump costs, based on the model of the washing machine, $ 60 -130 $. In order not to make a mistake in connecting the transitions and in the fixation points of the node, you must enlist the help of the wizards.
If the contacts are connected correctly and 2E flashes on display, check the wires that may be damaged by vibration. To do this, check the tourniquet with a multimeter, accurately figuring out the place of its break.
Damage to the control module
First, you need to solder the tracks and replace the controller. If the Samsung washer 2E error code is still displayed on the screen, the whole board is changed. Its price is in the range of $ 150 -240 $, which depends on the specific model of the machine.
