Did you find a solution to this? The same has just happened to me....

The "FL" code indicates that the washer failed to lock the door, which would prevent the machine from running. If this happens again, close the door tightly and restart the cycle.

SE is actually 5E and means that the water has not pumped out of the machine in the time period allowed. It can be caused by a blockage so check the pump by taking off the black cover at the bottom right hand side on the front of the machine, be aware that if there is still water in the machine this will let it all over the floor. There should be a smaller white plug, twist this and pull and a small hose will come out to allow you to (slowly) drain the water.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Water spewing out indicates that either the filter requires cleaning (!) or the drain motor is jammed/malfunctioning. This first then guidance for your detergent tray.

Detergent tray
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which is causing water to overflow into the dispenser drawer so it needs a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD ;-0)
-------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
Please score these advices accordingly ;-0)

Good luck!

Found the solution a while back, forgot to post it. It was no malfunction. The problem was casued by the stupid child safety lock that we had inadvertently turned on (two buttons simultaneously pressed on front panel). Pressing the power button did not unlock this safety mechanism, for some reason.
Samsung contacted by phone, but refused to help...
