My Samsung front load washer will not start and throws a code that looks like 6E and it will not move from the cold position


Sud= The unit has sensed there is too many suds in the unit it will flush and pump out for 5 min and restart on its own..This is caused by too much soap use..
From the book :
SUD Code=
If too much detergent was used:
—Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
—Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,
pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle.

Just had the same issue. The latch, which rotates up and forward, is spring-loaded towards the rear. If 'tripped' to closed position, it cannot rotate back down until it's carrier/hinge slides slightly forward. I bent a sturdy wire into a long 'U', then bent both ends down (~3/8in) and slightly outward to hook over the latch-hinges and pull both sides gently (its plastic) forward, while rotating the latch downward with a small screwdriver. be careful to keep what appears to be a brown plastic button raised, if it pops down from above the latch. Yes, having 4 hands would help, but the 'U' wire can pull from behind the two outer edges with one finger. Once the latch rotates down, release tension on the 'U' wire and extricate it - problem solved.

Mine was the door lock switch, $80. and about 20 mins. working like a champ.

If during the spin cycle, the error code could be an error with the printed circuit board assembly of the washer. This means that the temperature readings are incorrect and the error will continue to display.

E6 error code indicates that the water heater is heating water too fast. Press the power button once to clear the error and finish the cycle before repair.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

6E mean Water heater not functioning. Check heating elements. You can find all error codes here: http://www.samsung.com/my/support/skp/faq/1033803.

All the best !

6e fault is saying that the temperature is not high enough, this is most likely a malfunctioning temperature sensor or an issue inside the electronics.
