Question about Samsung WE356A5W Washer/Dryer Laundry Pedestal
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?
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?

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.
