As you know 3E error code is a Motor tacho fault detected ... with the washer unplugged remove the back panel and check the motor wire harness connections. You can remove each wire, one at a time and then make sure each connection is tight and the wires are not burnt...usually the problem is solved after you have checked the wire harness... if all these appears fine then this indicates a possible motor failure ... let me know how it goes

Hello Kevin,disconnected all spade terminals all seem to be clean and good connection and no cables burnt etc.
Before checking the cables the drum seemed to have stopped turning !
I have tried machine on rice and spin,every 3 seconds water enters machine for 3seconds and stops and so on maybe 5 times and that's it ,also machine twitches every time water stops !! What now !!

OK their is a hall sensor located at the back ... you can check that as well... if all the connections and this sensor appears fine the motor will need replacement
