Error Codes for the Samsung Dryer

These Samsung Dryer error code explanations can assist you in diagnosing a problem with your dryer.

Error Codes for the Samsung Dryer

Your Samsung tumble dryer is not functioning properly. Why? Well, there are codes on the display console that tell you why, but you’ve misplaced your user manual, so you’re stuck guessing.

This chart will assist you in deciphering the Samsung dryer error codes and may even allow you to save money by avoiding a visit from one of the company’s repair technicians.

The first step, before doing anything else, is to unplug the dryer and wait at least 30 seconds before reconnecting it. This will allow you to get the dryer back into working order.

Occasionally, simply performing this procedure will assist the dryer’s internal motherboard in resetting and resuming proper operation.

FE (Federation of European Communities)

The letter ‘F’ in this case stands for frequency. The code FE indicates that your dryer is experiencing a ‘Frequency Error’ in the power supply. There are two possible explanations for this:

First and foremost, the area in which you live lacks a reliable and consistent supply of electricity.

Because of this, the electricity that is delivered to you is unpredictable — it can be strong at times and weak at others, for example.

Your dryer will be able to tell if it is weak because it will be deprived of sufficient power. You will receive a FE message as a result of this.

Another possibility is that the power frequency sensor in your dryer is faulty.

Your power company may be supplying the required frequency (60 Hz), but your dryer is sending the FE error message because of a damaged or malfunctioning frequency sensor, according to the manufacturer.

Make contact with your repair center as soon as possible. They can assist you in determining the root cause of the FE error message and in determining the appropriate course of action.

HE [Gas Dryer Heating Error]

The letter ‘h’ stands for the word ‘heat. hE is an abbreviation for ‘heating Error.’

This indicates that either the heating system on your dryer is not producing enough heat or that the heat sensor (thermistor) is not accurately sensing heat in your dryer.

Regardless of whether your dryer’s heater is powered by gas or electricity, have your repairman look for any of these problems.

It is possible that the problem is caused by a fault in the gas supply, which restricts the flow of gas to the heater coils.

Check to see that the gas supply cut-off valve is fully open before proceeding.

In the event that your dryer is powered by electricity, your repairman will first check to see if the dryer’s circuit breaker is closed.

If it is left open, no electricity will be able to flow to the space heater. But then he’ll have to figure out what electrical problem is causing the circuit breaker to trip in the first place.

If the wiring is faulty or damaged, he will also replace that portion of the system. In addition, if the problem is with the heat sensor, the repairman will replace it free of charge.


‘oD’ is an abbreviation for ‘over Dry.’ Typically, when this occurs, it indicates that the dryer did not detect that the clothes were already dry when it was turned on.

One of two things happened: either the moisture sensor failed, or something else was causing it to misinterpret the moisture level inside the dryer.

If a moist object or film becomes stuck on the sensor, the sensor may believe that the dryer tub still contains a significant amount of moisture.

It may as a result send an incorrect oD error message to the user. Check the moisture sensor and wipe it down with a clean cloth.

If the oD error continues to occur, contact your local repairman. It’s possible that your dryer requires a new moisture sensor.

If the thermistor registers a normal resistance reading (10,000 ohms), the error message is most likely caused by faulty or damaged electrical wiring in the circuit.

Having a better understanding of how to read and understand these Samsung dryer error codes will also help you better understand how your dryer is being troubleshooted and repaired by your repairman. Never attempt to complete the task yourself.

Voltage Erroneous Readings (9C1, 9E, 2E, 9E1)

This code displays when there is a voltage problem that is being supplying to the dryer machine.

If you receive this error, make sure that the dryer is connected to a separate circuit and not an extension cord.

It is important to double-check that the power cord has been properly installed and that the correct voltage is being supplied if you are using an electric dryer.

If you take a model out of the country where it was originally purchased, you may encounter this error because power grids and their regulations differ from country to country.

DO – Open the Door.

When this code is displayed, the solution can be as simple as closing the dryer door tightly against the dryer itself. However, in order for the dryer to function properly, the problem may necessitate a little more attention.

Starting with the door switch/lock, clean it thoroughly to remove any lint or residue that is preventing it from closing properly. To clean the connectors, apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a cotton swab and wiggle it around.

They must make complete contact with the dryer in order for it to work. If that doesn’t work, try the following:

Unplug the dryer and inspect the door lock/switch circuit for any loose or damaged wire connections by removing the plug. If any wires are loose or disconnected, they should be reconnected, and if the wire harness is damaged, it should be replaced.

If the door switch has been damaged, it should be replaced as soon as possible. These door switches are simple to replace and are significantly less expensive to purchase than a service call from a technician to perform the work.

Troubleshooting Common Samsung Dryer Error Codes

Error Codes for the Samsung Dryer (1)

If you have a problem with your Samsung dryer, newer models display an error code to let you know the nature of the issue. This handy guide outlines the meanings of the main Samsung dryer error codes and gives you advice about how to solve them. Thankfully, most of the error codes are simple to resolve and do not require a technician.

This Guide CCovers All Major Models of Samsung Dryers, Including:






















Please note: If your Samsung dryer does not have a digital display, it displays error codes as flashing lights instead. You can find out which error codes the flashing corresponds to by consulting your user manual.

Voltage Error Codes (9C1, 9E, 2E, 9E1)

This error code comes when a problem with the dryer’s voltage supply arises. To solve this issue:

  • Check the dryer is on its own circuit and not utilizing an extension cord.
  • Make sure the power cord is connected properly and that the right voltage is being delivered.
  • Because electricity grids and their rules differ from country to country, you can encounter this error if you take a model outside of the country it was marketed for. For example, if a British dryer is being used in the United States, it won’t work. If this applies to you, you need a voltage converter to fix the error code.

Door-related Error Codes (dC, dE, dF, do, d0, 1 DC, 1 dF)

These error codes concern the door, the latch, and the sensors that determine if the door is properly closed. This may occur if the door does not latch, close, or stay closed.

Verify that the door is closed and locked properly, that no laundry or other items are stuck between the door and the opening, and that the latch is firmly fixed.

If the code cannot be fixed or if you see obvious damage to the door or latch, you may need to replace the latch mechanism.

Jammed Button Error Codes (bE, bE2, bC2, 6E, 6E2, 6C2)

This displays if a panel button is stuck or is being pressed continuously.

If you encounter this error, turn off the dryer’s power before manually pressing and releasing each button on the control panel while moving your finger back and forth to touch each button’s edges.

You might need to replace the control panel if any buttons are broken or if the dryer’s error code reappears after turning on the dryer again.

Temperature Error Codes (tS, t5, tC, tO, t0, tE, tE3, tC5, tCS, 1 tC, 1tC5, 1tCS)

These show a problem with the sensors used to monitor the temperature.

The most frequent reason is a heat-trapping vent system or clogged lint screen in the dryer. To fix the problem, clean the vent system, lint screen, or both.

If this does not clear the error code, you may have to look into replacing the temperature sensor.

Heating Error Codes (HC, hE, HC4, 1 HC)

This indicates that the dryer is becoming overheated.

The most frequent reason is a heat-trapping vent system or clogged lint screen in the dryer. To fix the problem, clean the vent system, lint screen, or both.

Low voltage can sometimes be the root of the problem, which manifests as the heater not getting hot enough. You can check the voltage of your dryer with a multimeter to determine if this is the cause of the problem.

Communication error codes (AC, Et, AE, EEE, AE4, AE3, AE5, E3, 1 AC)

This error code means that the internal parts of the dryer cannot communicate with one another. To clear this code, the dryer should be turned off for 60 seconds before being turned back on.

In most cases, this should clear the error code, but if it does not you need to hire a professional to investigate further.

Frequency Error Codes (FC, FE, 1 FC)

These codes indicate that the power source frequency is incorrect. Try restarting the cycle to resolve this. As with the codes that indicate communication errors, if this code is not easily cleared, it requires a professional to investigate further.

Vent Blockage Test Result Error Codes (Clg, Cl9, Cg, C9, C80, C8o, C8, C90, C9o, Ct)

These codes appear only after a Vent Blockage test has been performed. You may choose to perform this test if you suspect that your vent is obstructed. The following is a list of the meanings of each individual code:

Clg, Cg – The vent has become obstructed.

C80, C8 – Approximately 80% of the vent is blocked.

C90, C9 – Approximately 90% of the vent is obstructed.

C1, CL1 – Laundry has been detected within the drum.

Ct – The dryer is either below freezing or above 104°F.

Other Common Error Codes

If the dryer displays error code that is not on the list, the problem is usually with the dryer’s sensors and components.

Here are a few examples:

1 AC7 – Electronic Control Error

3C – Motor Error

1 AC7 – Electronic Control Error 3C – Motor Error

HC2 – Gas Ignition Failure

If you receive one of these or any other errors, turn off the dryer for 2–3 minutes, then turn it back on and restart the cycle. If this does not work, consult your user manual for specific troubleshooting steps.
