    Take the detergent tray out and give it a good wash?

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    then you are in a more informed position than the clairvoyants on here who are trying to imagine what you have done, which washing machine it is, and what a basket with two lines looks like

    Make a solution of 1 to 1 vinegar and water and warm it up a little.

    Take the detergent tray out and let it soak in your solution for a couple of hours.

    Remove and scrub clean with something like an old toothbrush.

    Rinse off.

    If scale still there, repeat with neat vinegar.

    I think the 'DIY not' forums have people that understand error messages.

    Or if it isn't that forum, google 'what does samsung washing machine error message mean' or similar. There's definitley a forum out there.

    typicaly the standard symbols on the tray are

    2 lines main wash
    1 line pre wash
    other softener. (often a flower type symbol)


    which model washer.

    is it new one with auto detergent or and old model?

    Samsung codes are normally 2 letters/numbers.

    If you put powder where there should be liquid its likely a pipe is blocked. If you remove the tray can you see a blockage?
