Samsung washing machines are gaining in popularity. Now over 30% of our service calls are Samsung Appliances. We see the Samsung washer 2E error code fairly often. We’ve fixed this washing machine error code as well as many others.
You can read below to find out which part is most likely the culprit and what you can try to do to fix it before any washer parts are ordered. If you’re handy, you can make this washer repair yourself without having an appliance repair technician come to your home.
How To Fix Samsung Washer 2E Error Code:
1. Unplug the washer for 2-3 minutes:
Unplugging the washer for several minutes may possibly clear the 2E fault code. If the fault is a glitch or software issue with the control, then unplugging it might just work. It’s a free option so why not try it right? Leave the washer unplugged for several minutes. Ideally 2-3 minutes. Leaving the washer unplugged for several minutes will allow the capacitors on the control board to discharge completely. Once the capacitors have completely discharged the control has been reset.
2. Check wiring connection:
The error code indicates an issue with the main PCB control board that we know. A loose or shorted wire connection at the main control board could cause this error to be displayed on your machine. Double check each and every connection. If this was my call, I would remove each wire one at a time and plug it back in making sure the connection was tight and secure. If any connection is loose, or shorted, make the necessary repair to the wire connection and test the washer by running a quick cycle.
If trying the above options does not clear the 2E error from the display, the main PCB control board is going to need to be replaced to fix the washer for sure. If you’re handy, you can do this. The repair is more time consuming than difficult.
How To Replace Main Control Board:
The main control board on Samsung front load washing machines is on the back bottom. The main board is in a plastic case. The case is usually yellow in color although some I believe have a white casing? I don’t know for sure that’s what I’ve been told by other appliance repair technicians. The control board case is mounted to the back of the washer with several small Philip head screws. Removing each screw necessary the control assembly will slide over and pop out of the grooves on back.
Once out you can remove the control cover and have access to the plug and play wire system that Samsung uses. The plug and play wires have small tabs on the end. Depress the tab and gently lift up and the wire will come off the connection.
There should be enough wire length to swap each wire over one at a time. If the wires are not long enough, you can take a picture of the wires plugged in. That way you can revert back to the picture to verify proper wiring on the main computer control board. On a normal service call this is a common occurrence. Especially on newer products that I’m not very familiar with. It just ensures the wiring is correct and the job is done right.
