You rely on your dishwasher to work properly. Therefore, it can be frustrating when something goes wrong. Fortunately, a Samsung dishwasher has a built-in self-diagnosis system that may be able to help you solve the problem.
For example, you may notice a Samsung dishwasher error code 7E. If you notice a 7E error code, what does this mean? There are several possible causes of a 7E code on your Samsung dishwasher.
What Causes a 7E Error Code?
The Samsung dishwasher has a unique waterwall system. If there is something wrong with this waterwall system, then you will see this error code.
Because this waterwall system is a relatively new technology that has been patented by Samsung and installed in their latest models, it can experience issues from time to time. Because this is a new piece of technology, the 7E error code it's not something that is commonly seen in their systems.
7E and E7 Are Not the Same
Importantly, there is another error code, called E7, that could be confused with 7E.
These two codes are not the same. If you see a 7E error code, this is a sign that something is wrong with the waterwall system. The washing machine is having a hard time dispersing water. If you see an E7 error code, this is a sign that something is wrong with a thermostat.

What To Do When a 7E Error Code Appears
If you noticed this error code on your Samsung dishwasher, there are a few steps you should follow to look at the appliance motor just like a technician might. These include:
- First, you should disconnect the dishwasher from the power source.
- Then, wait approximately 10 or 15 minutes.
- After this, plug the dishwasher back into the power source.
- Then, see if the problem goes away.
If the problem is still there, there may be an issue with the control panel, the water source, or the electronics of the dishwasher that require a more in-depth fix.
Steps To Follow if the Error 7E Code Is Still Present
If the error code has not gone away, take a closer look at the dishwasher load. There may be something inhibiting the movement. You should take a look at knives, frying pans, utensils, and dishes that may be blocking the waterwall system. If this happens, you need to remove everything from the waterwall system itself.
After this, you should read start the dishwasher and see if it works properly. If the waterwall system it's still having issues, a few steps include:
- You could try to raise the washer bar of the dishwasher
- You may want to turn the water reflector in the dishwasher
- You may want to remove and reattach the washer bar and water reflector
If you follow these steps, you should completely reset the waterwall system, allowing it to function properly. This should remove the error code.
Other Possible Causes of this Dishwasher Error
There are a few other reasons why you may be noticing this error. These include:
- There could be a faulty sensor in the dishwasher or waterwall system
- The sprinkler might be having some problems
- There could be packing tape that is blocking the movable element
- The electric vane motor controlling the water wall system could be broken
If you are experiencing these issues, it may be a good idea to reach out to a professional who can help. That way, you can figure out if it is worth it to repair the part, replace the damaged part (such as a new sensor), or replace the dishwasher entirely.
