Help! 4E error code


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I’m a girl who has no idea about this stuff, so forgive my clueless-ness as I describe my issue. 

My Samsung top load washing machine has been giving me a 4E error code for a couple of weeks. I moved in to a new rental home about 2 months ago. The washer worked great in my old house and worked just fine up until a couple of weeks ago. 

A technician came and looked at the machine. He said the error code had something to do with the fact that my home doesn’t have a “hot water inlet hookup to the washing machine” or something along those lines. He wasn’t much help, and I felt extra stupid and didn’t ask many questions. 

So basically I’m wondering... do I need to get another washing machine that’s less high tech? Another brand? Certain kind? Somebody help please!

Hi. Is it a hot and cold washing machine? If so and you only have a cold water tap plumbed in for a washing machine whoever connected it up should have mentioned this. You can use a hot and cold fill washing machine with just cold water but you need to connect a y-piece and split the cold water into 2 supplies so both water valves get a water supply. 

It’s pretty straight forward. Read this article for more information Washing machine is hot and cold fill but I only have cold water tap
