Your Samsung washing machine seemed to go through a normal washing cycle, but after the signal for the end of the program, you suddenly found that the laundry was wet. What happened and why the spin stopped working? Let’s try to figure it out in this article.
What you can do yourself
To the delight of owners of Samsung say that not always the absence of spinning indicates a breakdown of the washing machine. It can be caused by the following reasons, which you can cope with yourself.
The choice of a program without spinning. Any modern machines, including Samsung, have a number of programs without a spin. As a rule, it is a “delicate” wash, “silk”, and “wool. Check what mode was originally selected. Perhaps the program is not supposed to spin.
Overloading the machine with laundry. If you put more things in the drum than it is supposed to according to the instructions, the power of the motor may not be enough to spin the drum. As a result, there is no or poor quality spinning. Try to remove some items from the machine and restart the spin.
Washing a single, but a voluminous thing. When washing a large item, such as a blanket, rug, or down jacket, the washing machine often can not spread it evenly on the drum, load imbalance is fixed, so the machine does not go to spin. Try to manually spread the thing on the drum as evenly as possible. In the future, try to give large things to dry cleaners or wash them in specialized laundries (machines installed there tend to have a larger capacity than at home).
Things are piled up “in a lump. A traditional situation – a pillowcase or duvet cover “ate” all the other things. The machine cannot place things on the drum and because of the imbalance of the load does not spin. It is necessary to manually place things on the drum.
Uneven installation of the washing machine. If the machine is not leveled, there is often a misalignment, and the laundry is poorly distributed on the drum. As a consequence, there is an imbalance, and the machine does not come out for spinning. It is required to properly install the washing machine, and adjust the feet.
One-time failure of the control unit. Sometimes Samsung machines “hang”. To eliminate the malfunction, it is required to disconnect the washer from the power supply for 10-15 minutes. If after switching on the spinning has worked normally, the matter was in a single failure, and the technique is in good order.
Possible malfunctions, requiring repair
Unfortunately, if the above tips do not help, almost one hundred percent confident you can talk about a breakdown of your Samsung. According to the experience of repair service technicians San Diego the machines of this brand with no spin, most often, fail the following units.
1. Frayed brushes motor
Graphite brushes are responsible for transferring voltage from the stator to the rotor. As they shorten, the power of the motor decreases, it is enough for low speed (when washing), but the Samsung can no longer accelerate the spin.
When the brush corners become so short that they lose contact with the collector, the drum rotation stops.
2. The drive belt has stretched, come off, or torn
The drive belt transmits the rotation from the motor shaft to the drum. If the belt is stretched, the machine will wash as normal but will not be able to obtain spin speed. If the belt is loose or torn, there will be no rotation at all.
3. The bearings have collapsed.
The bearings ensure the smooth rotation of the drum. As the machine is used, the packing loses its seal, moisture enters the bearings, and the corrosion process begins. When the bearings are destroyed, the machine’s ability to rotate the drum decreases, so if you ignore the problem, at some point the drum will completely jam or it will fall down.
4. Control module defective
Probably, some radio elements of the microcircuit are out of order, the tracks/contacts in the motor circuit are burned out or the firmware is broken.
Most often the board suffers due to power surges and moisture.
5. The tachometer has failed
This unit is located on the rotor of the motor. When in good condition, it detects the rotation speed and transmits the data to the control board. It is not uncommon for the tachometer to burn out a coil or for the magnet to unscrew.
6. Shock absorbers are worn out.
When in good condition, the shock absorbers dampen the vibrations of the washing machine. As they are worn, vibration-suppressing properties are reduced, there is an imbalance, and the machine jumps, and, therefore, can not gain speed.
7. Pressostat defective, responsible for determining water level in the tank.
It is probably stuck in the “full tank” position. Typically, pressostat failure is due to a clogged pressure chamber, pressostat hose, or a malfunction of the sensor itself.
8. The motor has burned out.
The motor drives the drum of the washing machine. Probably there was breakage of windings, so the machine no longer turns the drum.
9. Wiring or contacts in motor or tachometer circuit are faulty
The wiring becomes frayed from the vibrations of the washer, and the contacts come loose, oxidize or burn through. In the private sector, mice or rats can damage the wiring and contacts.
