When a problem comes up with your dishwasher, understanding Samsung dishwasher error codes can help you troubleshoot issues that you may have with your dishwasher. Models with a digital display will display an error code when something is wrong with a particular part of your dishwasher. Samsung dishwasher troubleshooting is something you can do on your own without being an expert in appliances.
Samsung Dishwasher Troubleshooting Codes
Below are some common Samsung dishwasher error codes and the steps you can take to solve the problem:
You’ll see this code if you have a Waterwall model and water is not flowing through the filter from the water supply.
Inspect the fine filter that is located at the bottom of the dishwasher.
Remove any food particles that may be clogging the filter and try to run a normal cycle.
You will see this error code if your pump is not operating properly.
Solving it could be as easy as restarting your dishwasher, which reengages the pump.
If doing this does not cause the error code to disappear, contact our Support Centre for a service call.
High water temperature:
Dishwashers have a temperature requirement for the water they use. This error code indicates that the water is too hot for your dishwasher.
Make sure the temperature of your hot water does not exceed 176 degrees Fahrenheit.
If adjusting the temperature does not clear the code, place a service call through our Support Centre.
Water supply error:
This error code means that the pressure and temperature of the water flowing into your dishwater do not meet the requirements of your Samsung dishwasher.
To check if water is coming into your dishwasher the way it should make sure that the water supply is on.
Note that flood-safe hoses are not a good fit for Samsung dishwashers and therefore should not be used.
If the water supply is on and the error code still persists, contact the Support Centre to request a service call.
There is something preventing the dishwasher from draining
First, check the drain connection at the sink.
If everything looks fine, check the drain hose for any debris that needs to be removed.
Also, inspect the filter and the sump in the tub and clean if necessary.
Waterwall reflector error:
This means the reflector is restricted and unable to operate freely.
Inspect the reflector to ensure that it is in the correct position.
You’ll also want to check to make sure the reflector is not clogged.
Low water level:
This error code means that there isn’t enough water in your dishwasher for it to operate.
Remove the dishes from the dishwasher and try to run a normal cycle.
If the error code is still present, place a service call with us.
Access Point Mode:
This tells you that your dishwasher is in Access Point Mode and is trying to connect to a mobile device.
If you are not trying to achieve this, simply turn your Samsung dishwasher off and then back on again.
One of the buttons on the panel is stuck.
First, turn off the dishwasher and then press each button on the panel one by one. This can help identify the faulty button.
Then, turn the dishwasher back on.
If the error code is still present, request s service call through our Support Centre.
