Samsung washer error codes

Samsung Washer Error Code H1, HE

Error code meaning: Water temperature issue

These errors, all related to temperature issues in your washing machine, can sometimes be traced back to the sensors detecting excessively high temperatures. While you might consider tackling this problem by checking the sensors yourself, it’s important to exercise caution. These issues can be quite complex, and DIY solutions may not always be advisable.

In Samsung washing machines, a unique design feature places the heating element in the front of the tank rather than the rear. This design requires you to remove the front wall, along with the control panel, to access the heating element. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to investigate the root cause of the error.

  1. Heating Element or Heat Sensor: It’s possible that the heating element or the heat sensor has burnt out, leading to temperature irregularities. In such cases, replacing the faulty component may resolve the issue. However, it’s crucial to have the proper skills and tools for this task.
  2. Cable or Supply Wire Short Circuit: Check for any signs of a short circuit in the cable or one of the supply wires. A short circuit can disrupt the heating process and trigger these errors. If you’re confident in your electrical troubleshooting abilities, you can attempt to identify and repair the issue safely.
  3. Overheat Protection: In some instances, the sensors and heat sensor may be functioning correctly, but the washing machine’s overheat protection system has been triggered. This can occur due to various reasons, including issues with the heating element itself or a blockage in the water flow. Investigate the appliance thoroughly to identify and address the root cause.
