Samsung washing machine Troubleshooting. When your Samsung washing machine isn’t getting the job done, it’s time to use a troubleshooting guide to figure out what and why it’s not functioning correctly.
We’ll help you find an easy fix so that you can feel confident knowing you got your laundry clean without spending more than necessary.
Samsung washing machine Troubleshooting
our troubleshooting guide is easy to use. We start with a list of potential symptoms and then you simply review each one until you find the one that fits your problem. Once that’s done, go through the list of causes.
Samsung washer doesn’t drain
There are times when small objects or articles of clothing get stuck in the drain pump. If there is anything blocking the drain pump, you can remove it and check for obstructions.
If everything is clear of any obstructions but still noisy during the washing cycle, replace it. Older washing machines are sometimes equipped with a water pump belt which can be problematic and need to be replaced at some point.
If it looks as though it’s been worn down over time, check to see if this is the case because your washer might have difficulty draining water from that moment on starting from then on and now.
Samsung washer does not spin
The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. This assembly prevents the washer from spinning if it fails to function.
A multimeter can be used to test the functionality of the lid switch assembly to determine if it is defective. The replacement may be necessary if continuity is not present as expected.
Samsung washer doesn’t agitate
If the washer won’t agitate, replacing the agitator repair kit will solve this problem. The kit is a collection of replacement parts that are most likely to wear out and/or fail. If any of the parts are worn out, stripped, or damaged, replace the kit.
The drive block connects the transmission to the agitator. If the drive block is worn out, even though you can see that both moving parts are still moving back and forth, chances are high that your washer won’t be able to agitate because it’s lacking enough power due to its condition. Inspect this part for damage.
If it’s worn out, stripped, or damaged in any way simply replace it with a new one before putting everything back together again.
The Samsung washer is making a lot of noise
The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The outside tub bearing helps to keep your washer spinning smoothly.
If you have a defective outer tub bearing, it might be best to replace both parts as a set. The drive pulley might be worn-out, cracked, broken, or bent but if you’re replacing an old one with a new one then you’ll want to make sure the pulley assembly is compatible with your machine and has matching part numbers.
The Samsung washer won’t turn on
Try pressing the buttons on the control panel to see if the user control and display are defective. You might need to replace the user control and display board if some buttons work but others do not.
Check the user control and display board for a power source if the display is not working. You may need to replace your user control and display board if you find that there is power, but the system is not working properly.
The Samsung washer leaks
The drain pump pumps water out the drain hose. If the drain hose develops a leak, water leaks from the connection between the pump and the back of the washer.
The drain hose can leak from wear and tear or when it’s pushed too far against a wall that causes wear on the rubber material.
Water may also leak from an inside washer wear hole if there isn’t enough space behind to properly fit its parts together in order to avoid rubbing against each other. You can check your washer’s hoses for wear by using your hands to run along with them. If the drain pump is leaking, replace it.
The washer door or lid won’t lock
The washer door lock is a safety feature that keeps the washer door closed during operation. The washer door needs to be completely sealed in order for certain features like automatic water fill, unloading, and special cycles to work properly.
If the lock were to malfunction and not fully secure the washer door there can be dangers of death or serious physical harm involved if an individual were to come in contact with any of these components while they’re moving at high speeds. So it’s important this piece is working properly.
A damaged seal could also allow water to leak out onto user-accessible areas such as cabinet floors and carpeting, so you may want to check for damage as well.
The Samsung washer is overflowing
Here is a quick troubleshooting guide to help you diagnose and repair a washing machine that won’t fill with water. In some cases, the problem may be as simple as the washer hose is too low or kinked up.
Make sure this is not the case by disconnecting your washing machine from its power source, then tilt the unit away from the wall and place it on a plastic tarp to protect your floor.
Locate the appliance drain hose (located at the top right corner of most washing machine models), extend it completely, and straighten out any kinks in the rubber hose using pliers if necessary.
Check that there is no debris clogging your drain hose, then reattach it to your washer and plug it in again. If you still find that your washing machine is not filling with water after confirming that there are no kinked or clogged hoses, try unclogging the water filter next.
