The most typical error codes for Samsung dishwashers are:
OE/OC/0C/oE – Water Overflow Error
This error occurs when the dishwasher has too much water in it. That can mean there is an issue with the main power board assembly or water intake valve. Examine the sink connection, filter, sump pump, drain, and drain hose. Remove any obstructions. Replace the inlet valve or power board if the water fills up even after replacement.
1E/IE – Clogged Filter Error
This signal indicates that the filter is not allowing water to pass. A Samsung technician should be contacted if the issue continues. Clean the fine filter at the bottom of your dishwasher to make the necessary repairs.
HE – Water Heater Error
Examine the heater’s primary power board assembly and wire connections. Replace the heater if it isn’t working. The main power board can be an issue if the heater is working correctly. If broken, replace.
HE1 – Thermistor Error
This signal indicates that the dishwasher’s internal temperature is either over 176°F or below 175°F. That may be the result of a jammed heat relay on the main power board or a thermistor that has to be changed if it’s broken.
Flashing “Heavy” – Water Leak
There is a water leak if you notice the word “heavy” flashing on your digital screen. Check the drain pipe, then tighten it or replace it.
LC/LE – Water Leak Error
Examine the tub, drain pump and hoses. It indicates that the drain hoses or pump are broken, resulting in a water leak under the dishwasher. Replace any broken components.
IE/1E – Clogged Filter Error
When the water in the dishwasher is not getting through the filter at the bottom, this error number is frequently encountered in waterfall machines. Clean the filter to repair. Contact a Samsung service agent if the code persists.
bE2/BE – Control Panel Button Stuck Error
The control panel’s button that is stuck is one. To locate and remove the stuck button, press all the other buttons first. Replace the control panel if the problem continues to exist.
CE – Communication Error
The dishwasher and control panel cannot communicate. The dishwasher should be shut off and restarted to repair. Get in touch with a Samsung service professional if the issue persists.
PE – Half Load Error Code
This error number denotes a problem with the motor assembly, sump pump, or diverter assembly. That happens when it is in half-load mode and the diverter assembly, which controls the spray arm, is not functioning. Examine the wiring harness and tighten any loose wires. Delete any damaged components.
3C – Pump Operation Error
This error signifies the water pump is not operating. It will probably need to be replaced if turning off and restarting the dishwasher does not fix it.
3E – High-Temperature Error
The water is boiling, according to this code. Verify the machine’s water temperature setting to ensure it is set to less than 175F. There are many different types of Samsung service technicians we have to contact them.
4C/4E – Water Supply Error
Six minutes after turning on the dishwasher, if there is no water in the tub, this code will illuminate. It might be a sign that the water entry valve is broken. Check that the inlet valve screen is clear and the water supply cut-off valve is entirely open. To ensure the valve is connected correctly, examine all the wirings. The water input valve should be changed.
5C/5E/SC/SE – Water Not Draining Error
This code denotes either an excessively sluggish or nonexistent water drainage. Examine and remove any obstructions from the sump pump, drainage hose, filter, sink connection and drain. In case the issue persists, replace any damaged parts.
7E – Waterwall Reflector Error
When the material reflector is obstructed and immobile, this error happens. Ensure the mirror is correctly placed and the component is not stuck. Verify that all the packing tape has been removed from the new equipment.
9E – Low Water Level Error
If it is not enough water in the dishwasher, this occurs. Dishes that have become wet should be emptied once you open the dishwasher. Ensure that your machine is level and that all the connections are tightly attached. If broken, replace the wire harness or water level sensor.
An error code may only be seen as an actual code on models with a digital display. For models lacking shows, flashing lights will be used instead. See our guide to deciphering the code if your dishwasher is not functioning correctly and the lights are flashing.
Before trying to reset the dishwasher or clear the code, always run the proper troubleshooting. Otherwise, the problem causing the error won’t be fixed, which might make it recur or damage the dishwasher.
