First of all check your drain filter (at the bottom on the left side) to make sure it’s not clogged.

You might need to drain water from the drum manually first and only then open the drain filter.

If you hear kinda rattling noise coming from the pump, that’s mean drain pump coming to the end, because drain motor impeller coming off from the motor shaft and slipping off.

Water not filling up the washer.

There are two common things that could happen.

One of them is faulty water inlet valve, second is water tap being OFF.

You need to remove the top cover on the washer and check water inlet valves for continuity with a multimeter.

Don’t forget to unplug the machine.

If you will get ZERO continuity that means the valve is defective.

Just make sure that hose connected to the sensor properly attached and not being detached from the sensor and from the drum at the bottom.

  1. have a Samsung Washer WF210 ANWXAA.

    Error code is P3 02.

    Will not start. no water in drum. Quick test mode says everything works.

  2. Any idea what JO (or J0) 12 error is? Previously got AE6 and replaced the main control board but not i get this new error. Thanks.

  3. Our washer has a 3E error code that comes up. Under it it says A motor problem. too many suds are detected during the wash session. the unit if put on hold until the amount of suds have been reduced. The unti will then go back to operating. when it finishes washing the’End’ and ‘suds’ codes will blink in turn. We did some googling and 3E says that the halls sensor could be the culprite so we replaced that but it didn’t make a difference. we try any wash cycle and it will start, it will drain water out, it will pump in water, start to aggitate the cycle and then just stop. It will sit for a few minutes then get the error code. The motor seems to work becuase it does aggitate and the drum moves easily and freely. We have tried flushing a ton of water through the drum as the pump will pump out.
    We are wondering if its the water level pressure sensor? Or can we check something else for detergent build up?

  4. I’ve Samsung washer WF435ATGJRA/A2 — suddenly stop working. got AE error and I could not power off with power button so I unplug AC power code and now washer does not power up — don’t see anything on display. When I press power button there is click sound but don’t see display power up.

    • 3C2 error code – motor problem, motor wiring, motor speed sensor (hall sensor) or motor control unit. This kind of issue is not easy to diagnose and fix.

  5. I have a Samsung Washer WF210 ANWXAA.

  9. Hi Eugene
    I have replaced the inter door lock on a samsung washing machine wf431abp after it was displaying the error code de1, however the code still shows.
    On the original interlock I opened it up and everything looks OK.
    I have tested it on a multi meter against the new part and the readings are the same.
    I have also checked for damaged or burnt wires at the door lock end and they look fine.
    What else shall I look for ?
    Many thanks

  10. 8C error code still showing after replacing hall sensor and vibration sensor. What else could it be? Samsung MODEL WA52J8060AW/A2

  11. Sounds like you know your stuff. I have a Samsung VRT Model #WF210AMW/XAA. It doesn’t fill with enough water. I checked inlet lines, inlet valves for continuity and blew through water level sensor hose. Is there a way to test water level sensor or just replace it
