I was getting a "Temp Sensor Error", replaced the sensor and after 2 loads am getting the error again. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

The Samsung WF448 washer has an option called---SilverCare.

The hose which sends water from the valve to the SilverCare Module was known to burst.

Customers would describe to me that they're having a problem with the washer "throwing" an error message---"Temperature Sensor Error" ---every 3rd or 4th load of wash.

In addition to this---there's an erratic/intermittent water leak.

Over time---the leak from the ruptured hose has sent water splattering/running down the center/rear of the tub assy(only when SilverCare has been selected for that cycle).
The THERMISTOR (temperature sensor) plug becomes saturated each time, Eventually the pins in the THERMISTOR plug connection have become corroded.
Most owners/users use the SilverCare option on an as-needed basis---which explains the occasional water-on-the-floor complaint.

Inspect the PLUG for the THERMISTOR for corrosion.

Disconnect & re-connect the plug several times to improve the connection---add a dab of NOALOX paste to improve conductivity (available at Lowes/Home Depot).

Replace the damaged WATER HOSE if burst/ruptured.

Also confirm that the hot & cold water hoses are correctly installed (not reversed).
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
