FIX FOR SAMSUNG 8E ERROR CODE !!!
As previously posted I had a 8E Error Code on my NEWER Samsung Top Load Washer Model # WA476DSHASU/A1 - called Samsung and they suggested it could have been the MEMS Sensor or loose wire harness connector. Replaced the Mems Sensor with a New one no change... (same 8E Error Code) so I called Samsung Tech Department again and was tranferred to the parts department for a New wire Harness. Unknown to me the parts department sent me the only Wire harness listed for my model washer.
This was the Upper harness that only Samsung had a Number for that was Wire Harness Part #DC93-00054B. When I got the Harness in the Harness did not look the same as the wire harness that I needed. Then I realized the Wire Harness has 2 parts an Upper Harness and (Lower Harness) which Samsung parts did not see on the Microfiche parts diagram. So i just happen to find the Lower Wire Harness part # on a tag that was taped to the Lower Wire harness. SAMSUNG DID NOT HAVE THIS LISTED?
I called Samsung again and asked if they had the Lower Wire Harness Part #DC93-00055C in stock (which I got part# from the Original one) they still did not have this listed on the Microfiche. So i ordered the Lower Harness got it in yesterday and installed just the Lower Wire Harness and THIS HARNESS SOLVED THE 8E ERROR PROBLEM! Since I am anal about Diagnostics I will try to post pictures of what wire went bad. But the Lower wire harness seems to be the issue when i narrowed it down. Samsung has a great machine but I think the factory workers or robots are tying the wire harness a bit too tight and causing internal breakage of wires in their harnesses when the machines go into the spin cycles.
I'll post pictures when/where I find the break in the wire Internally under the insulated wires. I might even send Samsung a detailed report of my findings with pictures and recommend corrective actions along with recommendations on a Stronger Hose Clamp that I've seen come off from bottom tub under a heavy High Speed Spin. I've already had 2 calls from customers who's laundry room flooded from the Bottom Tub Drain clamp coming loose and not being strong enough.
BOTTOM LINE THE LOWER HARNESS WAS THE PROBLEM - Part #DC93-00055C
