I see you posted a question a while ago, do you still need assistance?

Assuming you do still need advice, what is the model number of the Samsung washer Andrea?

The nature of the E3 suggests a communication fault, has the washer recently been moved?

Hi James , thanks for replying . The washer has only been moved a matter of inches where it currently resides , not from a different room or house move . It’s been in the same place since we bought it . Model number is *****Thanks , Andrea .

I don’t know what happened ... couldn’t get back to PayPal screen

Ok, its unlikely to be a lose connection if it has been moved but the fact it was moved and this has occurred around the same time would give me sufficient suspicion to say its worth removing the lid with the power off and checking the connections between the main PCB inside and the motor, it may just be a case of re-seating the connections.

That said it could also be (and from experience normally is) a faulty PCB, but with it only be a year old its unusual to go as they normally last a good 5 plus years.

Hi Andrea, not sure what you mean about the PayPal screen, from what I can see everything is ok this end.

Expert:  JamesI replied 24 days ago.

Now, in order to verify your washer comes under the 24 month warranty, can you please advise me of the serial number and the FD number which should be on the label along side the model number provided.

Great give me a short while to look up the warranty status

Expert:  JamesI replied 24 days ago.

Hi Andrea,

Some good news, I can confirm the washer is still under warranty, and the repair should be covered. To get a repair under warranty please call 0330(###) ###-####/a>, selecting option 3 and 3 again.

They will ask for the model number above and the serial number shown in the picture (under the bar code), and can then book you in.
