Samsung F/L WF42H5000AW/A2
« on: July 22, 2020, 05:14:57 PM »

This unit won't run.  The display board lights up but it won't change cycles.  The selector knob will spin but the indicator light stays on one setting [ie. Heavy Duty]  Hitting the start button the drain pump will "sometimes" kick on for a few seconds.  The code that comes up is AE6.  A communication error between the main and sub board.  Has anyone had a situation like this?  Before I replace the main or sub board I'm hoping that someone can assure me that changing one of those boards will cure the selector board problem.  Thanks

Can any of the Samsung loving techs on here help me identify the sub board on this washer.  It has 3 boards.  The main, inverter and Sub. Is the sub board what other companies call the user interface?  Can anyone help me figure out how to determine which board is bad?  Thanks
