If you see this error code, please, do the following:
- Disconnect the washer from the mains socket, wait for a couple of minutes (3-4 minutes are enough for PCB capacitors to discharge) and connect it again. The error is often cleared this way (resetting). If the code is gone, it has occurred due to a power surge, glitch, software problem, etc.
- Make sure the connections on and around sensors’ are ok. The error could have occurred because of loose or dirty wiring. Also, moisture can affect the molex connector and lead to poor contact. As a result, the board will not read the sensor’s signal, and the error code will appear on the screen. The problem can be solved by simply cleaning the molex connector’s end. Also, this may happen to the temperature sensors’ wiring. Follow the wires that lead from the sensor to the board using a multimeter. If there is one without continuity, the whole harness needs to be replaced.
- Run the diagnostic mode on your Samsung washer and check the actual temperature against what the sensor is going to show. If there is a great difference, there sensor is out of order and should be replaced. Diagnostic procedures may differ from model to model (see model numbers). Refer to the ASK Matt tab in the upper part of the page or share your model number and let me explain. The temperature sensor should read about 50-57kΩ at room temperature (about 70F) from the orange and white wire (on CN 3).
