Samsung washing machine clothes dryer declines to dry clothes on programs with drying out:
the drying out cycle does not begin at all. The appliance quickly reveals the FE/ FC mistake on screen;
the washing machine dryer disrupts drying out and problems the FE/ FC mistake code.
The definition of the FE error code in Samsung washing machine dryer
The FE error code (Fan Mistake acronym from English) appearing on Samsung washer clothes dryer’s display screen indicates a drying out follower error. For some reason, its turning is impossible. For that reason, the drying out procedure disrupts or doesn’t start whatsoever.
Note! This mistake is common for Samsung designs with the option of drying.
Frequently, the FE mistake indicates extreme troubles in the drying out procedure. But in some cases you can understand the error of ventilation on your own.
When does the FE mistake appear and exactly how to fix it?
There may be a self-diagnosis system failure. In some cases, the error code might show up because of a breakdown of the self-test of the washer clothes dryer. Therefore, the control module receives a false signal. After that, the self-diagnosis issues a message with an error code that is not in fact occurring.
To take care of it, switch off the washing machine clothes dryer with the Beginning/ Time out switch. Next off, draw the cable out of the socket. After 5-10 minutes activate and also start the drying out setting once more. If the FE code is false, it will certainly no longer appear.
When the reactivate of the washer dryer doesn’t help, then the FE error shows an extreme breakdown. In this instance, your Samsung washer clothes dryer requires specialist help.
|Signs of an error||Possible cause of occurrence||Repair or replacement|
|Samsung washer dryer doesn’t start the drying cycle or interrupts it in 1-2 minutes after the start. Then, the appliance issues the FE code on the screen.||There is faulty fan drying, caused by:breakdown of the starting capacitor;clogging of the fan impeller with debris;drying up of the bearing grease;breakage of the fan belt drive;breakage of the fan motor winding (the fan motor has burnt out).||Accordingly, it is necessary to do the following:replace the starting capacitor;remove debris that interferes with the free rotation of the impeller;grease the fan bearing;put a new belt on the drive.In the case of fan motor burning out, the device requires a complete fan replacement.|
|Interruption of a signal in the fan circuit. Possible reasons for the fault:Poor contact of the starting capacitor with the connector due to contamination or oxidation;the condenser has moved from its place (it often occurs during the top cover closing);there is an open or short circuit in the wiring to the fan.||To fix these failures, you have to:Clean or replace poor contacts in the place of the starting capacitor;fix the capacitor in the connector more carefully (when it fails out);Twist a broken wire in a loop or replace the entire plume.|
|Samsung washer dryer doesn’t activate drying. The fan error code lights up on display.||The problem is in a defective control module. It is about the washing machine’s brain, which controls all processes. The causes for the module failure:damage to tracks or radio elements (diodes, capacitors, resistors, etc.) of the drying unit on the module;failure of the processor.||Restoring the damaged elements on the board is necessary. For this, solder the paths and replace burnt radio parts (diodes, capacitors, resistors, etc.) If this doesn’t help to restore the machine’s operation or chip processor has burnt, the device requires complete replacement of the control module.|
