Error 4e in a Sumsung washing machine

Error 4eAutomatic washing machines with electronic display are no longer new. Information that appears while working on a small screen can be very useful. Indeed, in addition to the duration of the wash and the temperature of the water, machine manufacturers have included error codes in the program. We will deal with one of these errors - error 4e in the Samsung washing machine.

Error 4e Description

Error 4e means that for some reason the washing machine is not picking up water. This is easy to understand: you can’t hear the sounds of the accumulating water, and through the glass of the drum you cannot see the flow of water. Error 4 e in the Samsung washing machine can occur both at the very beginning of washing, and during rinsing, when soapy water is already drained, and clean water does not flow.

In some Samsung washing machine models, such an error is indicated not by the 4e code, but by the 4c ​​code.

Causes of occurrence

The occurrence of such an error can be caused by the following reasons:

  1. Lack of cold water.
  2. A foreign object is stuck in the water inlet valve.
  3. When connecting to the water supply, an error occurred in the connection of hot and cold water.
  4. There is no water pressure, there is no pressure in the water supply.
  5. The hose is not connected to the detergent container.


The first thing to do is open the cold water tap and make sure that it is not turned off.

If water is supplied to the apartment, but the machine does not start washing, showing error 4e on the screen, then it is necessary:

  1. Check the tightness of the tap and valve through which water is supplied; there may be a leak. Leaking water is usually the main cause of this error.
  2. Check with what pressure the water is supplied through the hose.

When the water pressure is strong, the cause may be a clogged inlet filter. It is enough to clean or replace it, and try to start the washing machine again. If the error 4e appears again on the screen, then the matter is in the internal details of the washing machine, which requires a call to the master.
