Last modified : Apr 01. 2019

If your Samsung Washing Machine is displaying a SE/5E error code, it means that your washer is having draining issues.


If you would like help in manually draining the water from your washer, visit our page about Emergency Drain a Samsung Front Loader.


Below are some troubleshooting tips to help with rectifying any blockage issues.

Note: Ensure that the power is turned off and the plug has been removed from the power point before commencing any work.

  • Make sure the drain hose is positioned correctly, depending on the connection type.
  • Remove the water hoses from the back of your washer and clean the debris filter of any blockages.
  • Make sure that the drain hose hasn’t got any kinks in it and that it is straightened all the way to the drain system.
  • Check and clean the drainage pump filter and remove any blockages.

If you require more information for your washer, please consult the user manual from our Manuals & Downloads page. Otherwise, please get in touch with our Samsung Care experts on 1300 362 603 (Toll Free in Australia) or contact our Live Chat Australia team.
