Samsung washers are some of the most popular and reliable in the industry. Samsung washer UE Error Code is a common occurrence on some of its models, but it’s not as serious as other error codes. This error can happen when there is an imbalance in laundry load during the spin cycle.
Samsung, as a global company, always puts its customers first. Samsung manufactures washing machines that are energy-efficient and eco-friendly to help save our environment.
They also ensure that all of their products are safe to use without any risks or hazards involved to ensure customer satisfaction and peace of mind.
Samsung provides excellent customer service by offering 24/7 support for all their customers through phone calls or online chat so they can troubleshoot any issues at hand.
What Does The Samsung Washer UE Error Code Mean?
Samsung washing machines use the UE/Ub codes to indicate an imbalance in the drum. The letters have been used on Samsung’s products since 2007 when a fault detection system was introduced. The washing machine will send either of these codes with the system, followed by an error code.
Usually, the fault will appear on most models three minutes into the spin cycle, but it can show any time after the washing process begins.
Samsung Washer UE Error Code is displayed on the washer when there is an unbalanced load being washed. It has stopped the spin cycle to prevent any safety hazards or damage to the machine.
Samsung washing machines often experience disruption to their balancing and an Unintended Overload Error in the first few seconds of a spin cycle.
At the start of a spin cycle, the Samsung washing machine’s engine attempts to speed up the drum, but sometimes this triggers a “gear train resonance,” causing the entire machine to lurch forward or backward slightly.
How To Fix Samsung Washer UE Error Code
It’s important to make sure the load is evenly distributed during spin cycles so items don’t break or cause the machine to shake. For this reason, you should redistribute washed items by removing some and adding others; for example, add a couple of towels or use fewer bath mats. If an item doesn’t spin on its own, try putting it in with other clothes that are similar in size and weight.
If your washer doesn’t open and displays the UE error message, run a spin cycle to clear out any excess water that may be in the drum. You can do this by selecting Select the spin cycle option (either with the zero or one spin symbol) until it is set to no spin.
Remove Shipping Materials
If you’ve recently purchased a washing machine and are noticing vibrations while in use, check the manual for the location of the shipping bolts. These bolts were kept in places by workers during transit but should be removed by the customer before using the machine.
If they’re left in place, they can create noise and cause vibration and movement in the machine while in use. By removing the bolts, you can stop the vibrations and restore a smooth operation to your washer.
Balance or reduce the Load
Samsung washer error code UE (Unbalanced Load) comes up when there is an unbalanced load in the washer. Your Samsung washer could be overloaded or underweight. See the guide below for more information.
- If you want faster spin cycles and more balanced loads, always group your laundry by size and type of fabric. Washing machines use centrifugal force to wash and clean clothes, which requires that clothing be evenly distributed throughout the drum. Unevenly distributed loads can affect spin speed — in both washers with a central agitator and those that do not — and cause uneven wear patterns on clothes.
- If you overload the machine, it won’t run properly. To make sure this isn’t the issue, try running a small load of clothes. If they come out clean without any problems, then consider that you may be too busy to notice if your machine is overloaded when you’re washing larger loads — and reduce the load size accordingly.
- If your load is lighter than usual, the spin cycle will have less impact. Try adding a few towels or shirts to get a more even spinning. If you’re only washing one or two items, add a few other items (towels) to even out the load for an optimal wash.
Level the Washer
The most common cause of a vibrating washer is a machine that is not leveled. If your washer or dryer is not level, it will shake and move as the machine is moving. This shaking can result in water sloshing around the machine, agitating clothes, and causing an overall less enjoyable washing experience.
If you have a washer that seems to be leaning in one direction, it might be because it’s not level. You can find out if your washer is level by pushing down on the top of the machine and feeling for wobbling or unevenness. You can also use a bubble level to see if both sides of your washer are touching the ground equally.
First, place the bubble level in the front of the top of the machine. If that bubble is not centered, then you’ll need to adjust your washer’s feet. In most cases, this means adjusting your washer’s front feet. Some brands have self-adjusting back feet, though — so be sure to check your manual.
Faulty Shock Absorbers
If your washing machine is shaking after the spin cycle, it might be because of faulty shock absorbers. Shock absorbers are essential to make sure your washing machine can spin and shake without worrying about damaging the rest of the washer.
This is why every Samsung washing machine has at least two shock absorbers, and usually four.
If your washer is shaking, it may be time to replace the shock absorbers in the machine’s suspension system. Shock absorbers are a standard feature on most modern washing machines.
It may be hard to diagnose the problem if they’re broken, as they are inside the washer itself and difficult to trace. The result is an expensive repair bill.
