Samsung Washer Dryer Error codes

These error code explanations can help you diagnose a problem with your Samsung Washer Dryer.

Flashing numbers and letters mean something has gone wrong with your Samsung Washer dryer. But what? And, of course, you can't find your Washer dryer manual. It could be something simple that you can fix yourself and avoid a service call. You'll find a list of common repair issues and suggested resolutions for Samsung Washer dryer models here. Or, it could be serious enough that you should step away from the Washer dryer.

This list will help you decipher the codes and make an informed decision. And, if your Samsung Washer dryer starts flashing error codes, head over to this list to decipher those as well.

LO or FL

Door lock error

Issue:
Door lock error
Advice:
Once the washer dryer cycle is complete if the door fails to unlock after seven tries, you'll get the LO or FL code. Begin by unplugging the washer dryer and force open the door. Check the wiring connections to the door lock/switch and tighten if needed. Forcing the door open may damage the door lock/switch which is often made of plastic. However, it is simple to replace and much less expensive than calling a technician.

ds

Door is not locked

Issue:
Door is not locked
Advice:
If the washer dryer won't start and you see "ds", the washer dryer door is open and the lock is malfunctioning. Use the diagnostic test mode to check the door lock/switch assembly. If that shows the lock is is defective, replace it.

dc

Unbalanced load

Issue:
Unbalanced load
Advice:
The dc code means the load has been detected as unbalanced during the final spin. The basket won't spin over 150 rpm when unbalanced and this code is displayed. Cancel the cycle or just let it end. Redistribute the load and respin. If this doesn't solve the problem, there may be damage to the suspension system. Check those areas for any wear and tear including metal or plastic shavings on the floor of the washer dryer interior.

Sud (F70)

Too many suds

Issue:
Too many suds
Advice:
Using a regular detergent or even too much high-efficiency (HE) detergent will produce excessive suds. This extends the length of the cycle, leaves your clothes sticky and soiled (dirt redeposits) and leaves your washer dryer stinking! Allow the suds to settle and move to the spin cycle. Rerun the clothes using no detergent and then clean your washer dryer.
