samsung wf600w2bc E1 error 1 sec after On it.


Recommended Posts

I bought this last 2017. when I start the program, this code comes after 1 sec, so its very fast.

pump is fine, if I put water inside machine, it will pump out. what did I do.

1. clean water intake

2.clean filter I even took out all hoses behind filter.

I did google it, and they talk about a water level pressure, I dont know much about that.

but maybe someone knows, because this error comes after 1 sec, and first thing it do after on it, its let water out, and spin a few times not 

letting water in. I can attach a video if nessesary. 

a technical guy who want to fix our machine said its solenoid-controlled valves, and he can change that, but its expensive

or he said maybe he can repair the motherboard if the valve isnt defect.

Hello. The error code E1 is often used by many different manufacturers to indicate that the washing machine has timed out on fill. The problem is that it shouldn't be possible for a washing machine to decide that the washing machine is not filling with water in one second. So I would consider the possibility that this error is not indicating the real issue. Unfortunately, error codes are sometimes just wrong.

If you have checked that there is a water supply, by running the fill hose into a bucket, then the fault is obviously on the washing machine somewhere. But, unless by any chance it can detect that a water valve solenoid is open circuit, it's not possible to tell that it isn't filling until it times out. This normally takes a minute or so. Essentially what it does is it energises the water valve, and then starts a timer. If the pressure switch hasn't activated after a minute or 2 then it times out and produces an error code.

You could unplug the washing machine and test the water valve(s) with a continuity test meter. The resistance is very high though, so you would need to ensure it is on the correct range. On some meters, the reading almost looks open circuit.

If the water supply is definitely there, and the connections in the water valves are okay, and the water valves are not open circuit, then you have a difficult fault. I would be sceptical about repairing the main PCB. Unless by any chance this guy is very proficient at electronics. Washing machine repairers do not repair PCBs. There is no information on them, and no spare parts for them within the white goods industry.

I would also not recommend fitting a new PCB. It could of course be a faulty PCB, but they are expensive, and if it does not fix the fault you have wasted a lot of money.

everything is checked now If the water supply is definitely there, and the connections in the water valves are okay, and the water valves are not open circuit, then you have a difficult fault. looks like PCB, I even tried with another sensor switch.

I can also borrow a PCB and try with that, but you said if that does not fix it, meaning, its not sure its PCB? so what it could be besides that?

It could well be the PCB, but they are expensive to buy and there's always a possibility it's a weird connection fault somewhere, or a pressure switch fault, or even a communication issue between the pcb and control panel. If you can try a different one for free that's great, as long as it's exactly the same pcb.

I am surprised there is not a business there for someone these days to fix or specialising fixing  washing machine PCB's in the UK in this day and age - something like a "post off & receive back repaired" washing machine & tumble dryer PCB repair service. 

say (and I don't know if this is the case) that its just one or 2 components (a burnt out cap or resistor or relay for example) and instead when a PCB goes kaput its either source another (whole) PCB replacement and if the replacement PCB is no longer manufactured, then that's it chuck away the machine and buy another new one! 

i am not mainly into the electronics side of things personally not being able to read resistor values etc but if i was i think I would be offering such a service (if I knew electronic work) for the simple fact it does not look like there is any such firm willing to take on such repairs service. I remember years ago having a gas boiler which did not spark to light up the boiler - I sent away to some such firm they had it 3 days and repaired it , posted back and boiler worked for about another 3 years 50quid or something the repair cost, a couple of resistors and a capacitor replaced on the board if i remember correctly  - if however I were to order a brand new PCB it would have cost around 300 quid I think it was for a new PCB for the boiler.

There is Andy, if they are still going. They are called QER repairs.

Looks like they may no longer be around 😐️ I found a similar company but they say its a minimum £50 charge even if they dont repair it, and that many white goods pcbs are uneconomical for them to repair. 

It's a ludicrous situation.

isnt it just - there should be a lot more companies offering the service , for trade and the public - it would certainly save a lot of washing machines and that ending up in (landfill I was gonna say but its recycling depot these days) 
and should be no-fix no fee or just a low checking charge, that would put a lot of people off for a start 50quid minimum charge. 

There should be appliance scrap yards as well .... like a car scrapyard , but with washing machines, tumble driers , fridges, freezers dishwashers and all items like that, stripped of all useful stuff/parts then put on shelves and then the metal shell (if no good) crushed and sold to metal recyclers

For sure. I once thought about opening a white goods appliance scrap yard with shareable workbenches. I still believe they would work but not the gambling type.

now you will be wondering 'I wonder if it would have taken off' 
I couldn't see why it wouldn't - what with a good website and offering online ordering and everything categorised on the website and a facility for people to collect from the depot as well - and offering a reconditioning parts service where people buy a part and then send back their old part for exchange , like they used to years ago for car's for radiators and alternators and a local pick up and dispose of white goods rather than people having to drop them off to the tip. - then set up some arrangement with the local currys and independent electrical shops to collect their white goods they take back from their customers . 
There is so much potential there I reckon to make it work and profitable.

it wasnt the PCB, so I have tried with everything now, so I have no idea what it is.

someone have a clue?
