The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wbrrkqqwkwbqsdgxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/kdkftbfkwxkfsqdgqsg/1/1303472/5961857/image5668img-or.jpg

From the service manual....

"C1 = Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit.

If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current
limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and
display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for
instantaneous current limit trip.

Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current
draw greater than 5.55 amps
at the motor windings.

Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps
instantly at the motor windings.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or
motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem."

Error codes


Samsung Washer Fault Codes
4E WATER SUPPLY ERROR Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.
5E WATER DRAIN ERROR 5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drainerror can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
oE OVER-FLOW ERROR Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.
UE UNBALANCE ERROR Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.
HE WATER HEATER ERROR HE, HE1 is displayed if the water temperature rises by 7 C or more in 1 Min or by 2 C or less 20 Min after heating process has started. The error can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF.
1 E WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR * Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz High Level = 15.00 Khz

If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is aPRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.
cE ABNORMAL WATER TEMPERATURE ERROR e.g. If the water temperature is 50 C or more, during a Delicate or Wool cycle.

At the time of initial water supply, if the water temperature is not appropriate, the display will show cE. This error can be cleared by POWER SWITCH OFF.
11 E WATER LEAKAGE ERROR Water Leakage error occurs when the water drains naturally, (by leakage) after the washing program starts.
tE THERMISTOR ERROR This error occurs when the Thermistor circuit is abnormal or a voltage of O.2v or below or, 4.5v and over is detected. This error can be cleared by POWER switch OFF.
3E MOTOR RESTRICTION ERROR Hall Sensor is sensed every 5OOms. 1 second after motor starts to work.

If data of hall sensor is less than 2 (2RPM), the Washing motor will stop at once.

During Washing and Rinsing when a motor restriction is sensed, the motor stops and then proceeds to the next water -flow action. If the motor stops working and this happens in one direction ten times, "3E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating. when a motor restriction is sensed. the motor stops working and then returns to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing cycle. After ten times, "3E" Error isdisplayed, When the motor Is told to stop because of an operating function. no error is shown.

Power 81W OFF can clear the motor restriction error.
8E OVER CURRENT ERROR IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).

IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.

If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.

If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

HOWEVER, the UK White goods website says:

E8
Temp too high on low temp washesNormally this will be the wash temperature thermistor or NTC that's faulty, please contact us if you need the thermistor with the model and serial number.

What is erro code 6e on a samsung washing machine


Don"t worry too much about the error code, press pause, and then press pause again, the cycle should continue. If the counter does not countdown, ideally,as long as your washing is in the machine for 30-35 mins that should be ample time, then press pause and put your dial on the final cycle from rinse to spin, if this does not work, try picking a longer wash cycle, leave for 30-35 mins, then press pause and fast-track to your final stage of rinse to spin, Good Luck!

Cycle Signal Volume


Try this, with power off press spin for five seconds on and five seconds off until 88 appears in the display. After this either it will start with a c1 or it will flash an error code, write down the code and within five seconds press spin again to advance so auto diagnostics will start, if your display is bad F 2 will pop up quickly.

Message on screen 8E, Motor won't start on spin cycle. Model no Q1435(C/S/V)


This is what I found:
11. OVER CURRENT ERROR - Display shows 8E .
- IPM fault signal (that is caused by the overload of MICOM INT0 during motor action) is sensed.
IPM : Integrated power module. , IPM controls motor.
- If the fault signal (low signal) happens to be sensed even one time during cleansing/rinsing stage,
the motor stops immediately. However, during dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed
when the number of signal is more than 6 for 500ms.
- During Cleansing or Rinsing
When the overload is sensed, the motor stops immediately and then proceeds to the next water-flow action.
If the stopping of the motor working is happens in one direction ten times,
"8E" Error is displayed.
- During dehydrating
When the overload is sensed, the motor stops to work at once and then feeds back to the initial
stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing.
When the feed back is continuously happened 2 times, "8E" Error is displayed
During the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing.
When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily.
-Power S/W Off can clear the overload error.
in short: imbalance problem
In a german forum one guy solved the problem by replacing the motor electronics. I am currently experiencing the same problem. I keep you posted.

Washer will drain druning the initial spin but not during the final spin


LD is a Long Drain code. You mentioned that there is an initial drain so this could be due to some lint or debis caught up in the drain line or drain tank. You will have to remove the black drain line and inspect to make sure all is clear. If you hear a humming noise while the cycle is in the drain cycle, your pump gears could be stripped. If this is the case - the pump will need to be replaced.

The C1 code is a motor current error. The source of the problem might be the motor, but will take more detailed electrical troubleshooting to find out.
