Check the information codes of the dryer

Last Update date : Dec 08. 2021

If the washing machine fails to operate, you may see an information code on the screen. In most cases, it is not a mechanical problem. Check the codes and instructions below and try the suggestions that are given. If any code keeps appearing on the screen, please contact a local Samsung service center for further support. 

Major information codes

 

 

The first step before you do anything else in order to get the dryer back in operational mode is to unplug the dryer and wait at least 30 seconds before reconnecting it. Sometimes just doing this will help the dryer's internal motherboard reset and begin to function properly.
