After you have col­lect­ed all the dirty things in the house, placed them in the drum, added deter­gent and con­di­tion­er, start­ed the wash­ing process and wait for the work to begin. How­ev­er, the liq­uid does not enter the com­part­ment and error 4E flaunts on the screen in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine. Such an error can occur both at the begin­ning of the wash­ing process, and at the time of the oper­a­tion. It is not uncom­mon for an error to occur dur­ing the rins­ing process.

Those mod­els in which there is no dis­play, error 4E in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine occurs as fol­lows: con­stant­ly burn­ing tem­per­a­ture indi­ca­tors. Among oth­er things, an alarm occurs in the form of con­stant­ly flash­ing rinse and spin indi­ca­tors. More infor­ma­tion about the error sig­nal val­ues ​​for machines with­out dis­plays can be found on the man­u­fac­tur­er’s web­site or in the man­u­al that was includ­ed with the wash­ing machine.

Error code 4E in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine dis­plays a prob­lem at the water intake stage. In the event that the Sam­sung wash­ing machine does not pro­duce a set of liq­uid with­in 2 min­utes from the start, or if it could not col­lect the required amount for the entry lev­el in 10 min­utes, then the com­mand device issues an alert and the oper­a­tion is sus­pend­ed or does not start at all.

We fix error 4E on our own

error 4e in samsung washing machine

  • The first step is to check the pres­ence of water in the tap, as it could sim­ply be turned off and because of this you get an error 4E in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine.
  • Then check the mech­a­nism that reg­u­lates the process of sup­ply­ing liq­uid, which can be closed and sim­ply does not sup­ply water to the wash­ing machine.
  • In the case of using an aquastop inlet hose, you need to make sure that it does not have any mechan­i­cal defects. It is pos­si­ble that the hose was dam­aged, which result­ed in block­ing the flow of flu­id into the machine. A sig­nal ele­ment will help you make sure of this, which warns of a leak, if the sys­tem still works, then its col­or will change to red. In this case, you just sim­ply need to replace the hose.
  • Check the fil­ter, made in the form of a small mesh, for block­ages in it and clean it if nec­es­sary. It is designed to clean water from dirt par­ti­cles, scale and bro­ken pieces of rust in pipes. The fil­ter is locat­ed at the junc­tion of the hose and the machine, just before the inlet valve. You need to turn off the water sup­ply to the machine, then unscrew the water sup­ply hose and care­ful­ly remove the fil­ter mesh using pli­ers. Then gen­tly, using a small nee­dle, clean and rinse it under strong pres­sure. The sec­ond solu­tion to the prob­lem is a solu­tion of cit­ric acid, in which it is nec­es­sary to place the fil­ter for a peri­od of 30 to 60 min­utes, after which all the scale should dis­solve and after wash­ing, you will get a clean mesh.
  • If the error code 4E in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine occurs for the first time, you need to turn it off for up to 15 min­utes, and then recon­nect it. The com­mand device may have failed, and a sys­tem reboot may be required to return to nor­mal.
  • You will need to check the ser­vice­abil­i­ty of the cables and con­tact fields that go to the inlet valve that pumps liq­uid into the Sam­sung wash­ing machine. They could move away or oxi­dize, to elim­i­nate this mal­func­tion, it is nec­es­sary to bring them to their orig­i­nal posi­tion or clean the con­tacts.
  • If the E4 error in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine man­i­fests itself in the form of a set and instan­ta­neous drain­ing of water, you need to make sure that the drain is installed in the sew­er in a qual­i­ty and cor­rect man­ner.

If, after car­ry­ing out all the above meth­ods, the 4E error in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine has not been elim­i­nat­ed, it is best for you to turn to pro­fes­sion­als who can eas­i­ly iden­ti­fy the caus­es and fix the prob­lem.

Malfunctions that require specialist intervention

Let’s talk about mal­func­tions that are very dif­fi­cult to fix with your own hands and it is bet­ter to turn to spe­cial­ists:

  1. The wash­ing machine shows signs of inop­er­abil­i­ty, for exam­ple: water does not fill. This may be caused by a mal­func­tion of the inlet valve, due to which the flu­id sup­ply is reg­u­lat­ed. If it mal­func­tions, it does not open, and the water sup­ply stops.
  2. Dur­ing the wash­ing or rins­ing process, error 4E is gen­er­at­ed — this may be caused by the inop­er­abil­i­ty of the com­mand device, which is respon­si­ble for con­trol­ling the oper­a­tion of the wash­ing machine.
  3. After the start of the wash­ing process, no water is sup­plied. This is due to the fact that the relay, which is designed to mea­sure the water sup­ply, is out of order. The most com­mon rea­son for this is:
  • his block­age;
  • dam­age or dis­con­nec­tion of the relay dur­ing trans­porta­tion or improp­er oper­a­tion.

To elim­i­nate error 4E, it is nec­es­sary to clean or replace the pres­sure switch pipe.

In this arti­cle, we exam­ined the caus­es of the 4E error in the Sam­sung wash­ing machine and the actions that must be tak­en if they occur. If you are not con­fi­dent in your abil­i­ties, then we strong­ly do not rec­om­mend that you under­take repairs, and the best solu­tion for you, in order not to dam­age any­thing else, is to con­tact spe­cial­ists who know their busi­ness.
