Samsung ww22K6800AW/A2 8C1 or BC1 error

Recommended Posts

I have a 2 year old samsung ww2k6800AW washer.  it's the 24" front load.

When start button is pushed on any cycle, the drain pump activates for a few seconds, then nothing happens.  no errors, just silence.  water does not start to fill, and tumbler does not move. 

Funny thing is when I first plugged it in (after it was unplugged for about a week) and tested it, it ran through a quick wash cycle ok.  Then when I did a self clean cycle, it stalled with 7 minutes left, and hasn't worked since.

When I enter diagnostic mode (delay 17H), the AS appears for a few seconds then either 8C1 or BC1 (not sure which it is).

I entered a chat with samsung support and they said it is power switch related, and said to unplug and plug back in after 60 seconds.  this did not fix the problem.

I did find something that said it's mems sensor related, but it was for a completely different washer.

thanks for any help.

forgot to mention that I have a service manual for this washer, and it doesn't show a 8C1 error, but there is reference to an 8E1 error which is a mems PBC check detected error

not sure about 8c1 but 8c is usually the MEMS sensor

Same issue. 8C1 error code. Replaced MEMS sensor and the control board. Issue continues. Any other thoughts or suggestions. Washing machine used for THREE weeks only
