Hi: The E6 error code relates to a faulty wash heater, but before replacing the Heater be sure to check it's wiring for continuity & also the terminals for good connection. The Element is easy enough to check with a small Multimeter, but remember to disconnect all power from the machine first.

Hello Jaytee & Specialist,thanks for the info about the Samsung washer.Since I am not a Samsung repair man,info is hard to find.A local Samsung man told me to replace the control board because there is no heater in this washer.I just did it today and will post the results after a few days to let the customer use it.Thanks again.You guys are very helpful and great! :)

Hi: Just looked at the P801 service manual & it shows that there is a Wash Heater in the bottom of the tub & that both E5/6 errors are related to incorrect water heating.
Please let us know what happens.

This is Shillion again.Thank you AJ & Specialist for giving me the info and the service manual.The P801 clearly has a heater.My local Samsung man said there was no heater in the washer.I took his word and replaced the PCB without further diagnosing.I will talk to the machine owner to find out whether I did the correct thing.It's very difficult to repair this machine without first getting the service manual.Now I am well equipped to deal with this machine.I will post the result after I confirmed the machine is good.Thanks again! ;)

Samsung P801 waher.  E6 after washing.
Tried to buy a new heater here in Canada but no longer available after 6 years old.  Samsungs email reply was  "We hope this doesnt inconveniece you but this part is no longer available" ??????  6 Years.???
After starting to analyse the problem i found the washer drain screen crammed with bobby pins and other stuff not allowing the water to drain.  According to the service manual E6 is overheating,so i know the heater is working.  After cleaning the screen it has been working great.  I think that checking the screen every few months as the manual states is a GOOOOD idea.
