DTC H1 on a Samsung washing machine

error h1 in samsung washing machineSelf-diagnosis is a great invention embedded in washing machines. The more modern the “washer”, the more accurately it can identify the cause of its breakdown and find what the mistake is. If the h1 error appears on the display of your Samsung washing machine, then you must immediately stop the operation of the "home assistant" and begin to deal with the decryption of this code. And we will help you in this matter.

Possible situations causing error H1

Let's start with the specifics of error H1. Not on all Samsung washing machine models, when similar problems occur, it is the H1 error that is displayed, in some cases, the codes HE or HE1 pop up. Remember that these codes mean approximately the same thing - you will have to check the heating element. It would seem that the difficult thing is to unscrew the back wall of the washing machine and check the heater for proper operation?

error n1 in the Samsung washing machineThe fact is that in the Samsung car, the heating element is not in the back of the tank, but in front. This means that you have to remove the front wall along with the control panel, and after that access to the heater will open. How to remove the front wall of the Samsung typewriter is described in one of the articles on our site disassembly of the washing machine (Indesit, Hansa, Samsung, AlGi, Siemens, etc.). As soon as the wall can be removed, it will be necessary to find the cause of the error H1.

  1. Perhaps the reason is that the heater itself or the thermal sensor burned out.
  2. Perhaps the Ten's circuit has occurred or one of the supply wires has not been contacted.
  3. Either the heating element and the temperature sensor are working, but the protection against overheating just worked.

Important! Each of the above reasons requires verification, and as soon as it is possible to find a breakdown, it will be necessary to fix it immediately, and then the machine will work without failures.

He closed, the heating element burned out or his wire did not contact

Having removed the front wall of the Samsung washing machine, we must remove the protective cover from the heating element, which is located directly under the hatch in a small niche. We pull out the pad and we see two large contacts in front of us, to which the wires fit. To begin with, we must visually check how well the wires are fixed and whether they are damaged. Perhaps the error is caused by this. Next, we need to take a multimeter and measure the resistance on the contacts and wires. To do this, do the following:check tena washing machine

  • remove the wires from the contacts of the heater and the temperature sensor;
  • measure the resistance of the PETN contacts, if the value of 28-30 Ohms is displayed on the multimeter display, then the heater is working, if the display shows unity, then the heater burns out;
  • measure the resistance on the wires, the device should show approximately the same value as when measuring the heating element, unless of course the wire is broken.

If a broken wire or a burnt heater is detected, you must either replace this wire or replace the heater. There is nothing complicated with replacing the wire, so we will not give separate explanations, but we will talk more about replacing the heating element.

  1. Unscrew the nut that secures the heater to the tank, it is located right in the center between the contacts.
  2. We grab hold of the Ten's contacts and start pulling it towards you, not forgetting to swing from side to side.
  3. We take out the old ten, and then take the old toothbrush and put it into the hole that has formed. Our task is to clean scale and other debris that has accumulated there from the bottom of the tank.
  4. Lubricate the edges of the hole with soap and carefully insert the new ten of the Samsung washing machine into it.

Note! Make sure that the rubber of the new PETN does not go astray during installation, and even more so does not tear.

  1. We connect the wires to the new heating element and the temperature sensor, put the protective pad and assemble the washing machine. Next, run the test wash and enjoy the work of the Samsung machine.

Burned out thermal sensor

In the vast majority of cases, the reason why the H1 error on the Samsung washing machine “pops up” boils down to damaged wires, contacts, and a burned out heater. But it happens that the heating element is working, the wires are intact, but an error still appears. In this case, a burned-out temperature sensor should be considered a possible cause. Samsung washing machine has one type of temperature sensors - a thermistor. It is installed directly in the heating element, it is not difficult to find it. We do the following:thermal sensor of the washing machine

  • we find a temperature sensor - this is a black plastic element with contacts, which stands directly on the heater;
  • measure its resistance with a multimeter;
  • remove the wiring from it;
  • gently pry it with a flat screwdriver and pull it out;
  • we insert a new thermal sensor in its place and connect the wires;
  • after these simple manipulations everything should work fine.

Important! A healthy disconnected temperature sensor should show a value close to 35 kOhm.

Overheat protection tripped

ten washing machineAll modern heating elements are equipped with protection against overheating. It works very simply. A spiral passes inside the PETN tubes. This spiral is connected to the contacts of the PETN via a low-melting element - this is the fuse. If the spiral overheats, the fuse will melt, interrupt the circuit and the PETN spiral will survive, and the H1 error will appear on the machine display.

The problem is that fuses of this kind are not recoverable and they will have to be changed when they are tripped. But there are tena with reusable ceramic fuses. When overheated, the fuse breaks and the circuit is also interrupted. How to restore the fuse and "bring back to life" the heating element?

  1. We break off the plastic rivets of the base of the heater and disassemble it.
  2. We remove the broken off ceramic element, cut it with a hacksaw blade for metal and put it back.
  3. We glue the Ten's body with some good heat-resistant glue.
  4. We check the resistance with a multimeter so that there are no surprises.
  5. We put ten in place.

Note! In places where there used to be plastic rivets on the heater body, you can drill holes and insert small bolts there, and then tighten the case with a nut. Then it will be possible to disassemble ten in case of a recurrence of the problem.

In conclusion, we note the H1 error on the Samsung washing machine, the phenomenon is quite common. Poor water, negative operating conditions, low-quality parts, all these factors contribute to the rapid failure of the heating element and its auxiliary elements. Is it possible to find and fix the problem if there is an H1 error with your own hands? Of course you can, the main thing is to follow the advice of professionals and no problem that causes a system error, you are not afraid.

    So, by the way, not all samsung washers have a heating heater under the front panel. For example wf-1500nhw. Do not bother to immediately remove the rubber - then you are tormented to put on clothes, just unscrew the back wall, 3 screws ...
