Top-loading Samsung washers will not progress to the drain or spin cycle when the lid switch is not working. A Samsung washing machine that isn’t able to complete the cycle may have a broken timer or an inoperable pressure switch for the water level. A defective or malfunctioning drain pump, or shifter assembly for a top load vertical modular Samsung washer can cause it to stop mid-cycle. Excessive suds can also cause the washer to stop working before the cycle finishes. For the front load Samsung washer, a malfunctioning door lock assembly for the washer and a failed main control board, or an inoperable motor control board may cause the Samsung washer from finishing the cycle. This type of washer often signals a digital error code when the washer control detects an issue and ceases the cycle. These repairs may be able to solve your Samsung Washer Problem.

Switch the lid off of the washer: The lid switch on a top-loading Samsung washing machine is a safety switch that checks if the washer lid is closed. If the basket spins the lid must be shut. Otherwise, the machine won’t drain or spin. Some top-load Samsung models need the lid of the washer to be closed before the washer drive motor is started. An open lid prevents some top-load Samsung washers from filling. If the switch on the lid isn’t sensing whether the lid is closed change the switch.

Change the Samsung washer-shifter assembly: The bottom of the gearbox contains the shifter assembly often referred to as an actuator-in-a top-load washer. The motor within the shifter assembly shifts the drive system from spinning modes to the agitation. The shifter’s sensor will monitor the position of drive system throughout the wash cycle. The washing machine will cease if the sensor, motor or mechanical component of the assembly for the shifter fails and issue an error code. If the shifter assembly malfunctions, replace it.

Replace the Samsung door lock assembly for the washer: The door lock assembly for a front load Samsung washer is equipped with a safety switch that detects whether the door to the washer is closed along with a latch as well as a locking mechanism. The door will not lock if any of the components fail when the door is opened. If one of the components fails when the door is closed, it will not be able to open.

Replace the entire unit if any component fails: Replace the Samsung washer main control board :The main electronic control board, also referred to the mother board, governs the timing and the execution of washer component functions. It controls the drain valves and fill valves pumps, in addition to the drive motor.

Replace the Samsung washer timer: The timer often referred to a cycle selector, is the dial that is used to control the timer of a Samsung washing machine that has mechanical controls. The timer controls the Samsung washing machine’s cycle, from filling to spin. If the timer doesn’t move the washer throughout its cycle then replace it.

Repair or replace the Samsung washer drain pump: The drain pump is responsible for removing water from the Samsung washer at specific time during the wash cycle. The impeller blades, seals and bearings on the pump could wear out. A belt-driven pump can have its belt break and its pulley could shear. A humming sound during the time that you notice that the Samsung washer is flooded is a common sign of a failed pump. In some cases it’s possible to fix the pump by cleaning the debris out replacing wiring malfunctions, or replacing an impeller. You may replace the pump in cases where it’s not possible to fix or rebuild it.

Replacing the Samsung washer motor control board: The motor control board is a board for circuit control located in front load Samsung washer. It’s typically in the lowest part of the washer right next to the drive motor. It controls the speed of the drive motor and the direction it is directed to for spin and tumble actions. If the motor isn’t running then the motor control panel might require replacement.

Replace the Samsung washer water-level pressure switch: The water-level pressure switch measures the level of water in the wash tub. If the water-level pressure switch is defective, the washer isn’t filling properly. It might not fill correctly or it might overfill to the point where it spills over. Change the pressure switch in the event that it does not sense or regulate the level of water inside the washer.
