Just recently my Samsung Dishwasher got error code 1E or IE on the display. Every time when i turn the power ON to the dishwasher, this error code 1E shows up right away, flashing and beeping.
I tried to reset dishwasher by turning breaker OFF for 15 minutes, but it didn’t help, error still there.
Then i called to the service technician. He came to my house and diagnosed dishwasher. He was not able to solve the problem on his visit and recommended to me to replace the main control board on his next visit.
The control board was replaced after a while, but it didn’t fix the problem. Any suggestions what else could be?

1. Dishwasher Temperature Sensor failure. This is may caused by:
- Temperature Sensor Failure, when it’s not sending “proper readings” to the control board. And control board “thinks”, that the water in the dishwasher too hot.
- Temperature sensor dirty and require cleaning. When a calcium build-up “wrap” sensor around, then the sensor unable to measure the temperature of the water and therefore will not send correct readings to the control board.
