Hi Betty, f8 e3 error code means the machine is reading a water level that is too high. This can be caused by over sudsing or a bad drain pump not pushing enough water out. First thing to try is cleaning the machine. They are available at most grocery stores. That should get rid of any excess detergent in the machine. Then run a load of laundry and see if the error code clears. If that doesn't clear up the problem,I would call your local repair company and have them check the drain pump. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: I got an E3 flashing, what does that mean. The

Okay; This will essentially be a Hall Sensor fault. The Error code (E3) Is issued when the Motor control board is attempting to drive the motor (during the spin out), but is not seeing any tachometer response readings. The Hall sensor monitors such movements to relay the necessary rotation information to the Motor control board. When the Hall malfunctions, the MCB will assume that the motor is "locked" and it will issue the (E3) code.

The necessary actions are to replace the Hall sensor. Here is a picture of the Stator(Motor) and Hall sensor.

Click here to access the service/repair manual for your unit. This manual will help you disassemble the affected area. You will first need to remove the rear access panel, before gaining access to the affected section. Once the rear panel is removed, focus on page 33-34 to help with removing the stator so that you can replace the damaged hall sensor. Please allow time for the manual to download, due to its size.

  • Once you have replaced the defective Hall sensor, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

Its flashing E3 and chiming. and stopped washing


Hi

E3 is an overload error and indicates that the washer motor is not running properly. You can take out some clothes and then restart the cycle by pressing the START/PAUSE button. After this, if the error appears again then check the motor connections, if everything appears fine then the motor should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
