Samsung B1113J "error code EA"

Called samsung support they said this error msg was to do with the 'auto sensor'. I would like to know where the auto sensor is located?

    Both wires that are connected to the brushes seem to be fine, I had a look around at some of the other wires and they look good too. Has for the first reply; both red wires are showing 150 ohms. It seems I'm still at a loss. Thanks for the help.

A Tech I called said auto sensor was the tach on the motor.

Check for proper resistance across pins 3&4 at the motor plug (2 red wires). Should be 150 ohms.

If proper resistance, could check connections at board and board itself.

Though I wonder what the error would be if the motor wasn't turning and this looked like an error with the tach. Would this this be an EA error too?

    Update: I ended up calling a repair guy to come and fix the EA error on my Samsung B1113J. He found one of the wire connection terminals on the motor had cooked at the connection to the brushes (not at the big white plug). Probably due to a lousy connection. He soldered a wire with a male connector end on it directly onto the old brush connection tab (which was half melted away). He plugged the old wire into the new wire and this worked like a charm.

    The EA error comes because the motor never turns and the thing times out.

    He accessed the bottom of the unit by pulling out from the wall and tipping the unit backwards against the wall. Careful it doesn't come all the way down though!

    So my Samsung B1113J has gone on the fritz again. Same problem (I didn't actually note the error on the display). Won't turn after the water has filled. I am really tied up at work so I have called the repair guy to come and fix it. I wish I could remember who did it last time.

    This washing machine is really a piece of junk. This is the 4th time it has needed repair in the seven years of ownership. My mom's Maytag ran for about 35 years and then she got rid of it just to upgrade to a front loader.

    Modern design/manufacturing practices are pathetic. The way items are designed to fail is contributing to our ever increasing waste of energy and resources.

I suspect your problem is solved one way or another but here is what was wrong with my machine for the benefit of other readers. I also had the EA error code.

One of the brushes for the motor was stuck and wouldn't keep contact with whatever it is called that it is supposed to keep in contact with. I removed the motor, removed the brushes and found that one of them would not come out all the way. Even pulling on it didn't get it to move so I pushed and tapped it and then it sprung out. I gave it a few swipes with 600 grit emery cloth and it would move freely after that. I put it all back together and jumped around for joy when the drum started turning after it filled with water.

I hope this helps someone else because Samsung wasn't very helpful and when they finally referred me to a repair guy that would come to see the machine, he said he didn't know what the problem was and suggested replacing the motor and the computer board which was very expensive. He said I would be better off buying a new machine. I didn't know what I was doing and the repair took less than 1.5 hours including getting ready and cleaning up afterward.

    Samsung front loading washer temperature sensor problem

    It may not be your temperature sensor or thermistor. If you have a tE error code on your Samsung washing machine, first check the wiring. My Samsung washer had three visits by the repair tech. and new parts ordered again and again. I looked on a British web site and two people said that it turned out to be wiring broken in several places. Sure enough, I found a broken wire. Technician didn't look for that. Hope it's as easy for you.

    Can't get rid of E1 error on a Samsung front loader washing mach.

    E1 : washing machine has exceeded a check time for fill, heat or empty.

    Common causes for this are fill and empty problems, heater fault (or the wiring
    to it broken), water pump open circuit (although that would stop the water draining too) Pressure chamber blocked or pressure tubing pipe looped below the pressure bottle, or a sticking eco ball in the sump hose (sludge and grease build up)

    This error code is generic and vey common.Since you have tried the remedies.Try getting checked the internal wiring damage by professionals.I hope certainly hope the problem lies there.
