Why Doesn’t My Samsung Washing Machine Work At All

If your Samsung washer isn’t responding, start by ruling out the obvious. Is it unplugged? Did the circuit fail? To test whether the electrical outlet is the issue, plug a hair dryer or another device that is electrical into it. If the hair dryer does not work, the wiring within the outlet is at fault. Repair the electrical outlet with an electrician.

If the hair dryer works then there is some wiring issues within the washer. Take these steps for checking the wiring in the Samsung washing machine:

  1. Unplug the Samsung washer and examine the power cord for damage. If the power cord has been damaged, replace it.
  2. Make sure that the wires are connected to the main control or timer board. Connect any wires that are loose.
  3. If your Samsung washing machine has digital displays, verify the wiring connections between the control board that controls the washer and the board for the user interface.


Connect any loose wires to the user interface

If the wiring connections are okay, you may have to replace the control board as well as the user interface board. Before replacing control components it’s best to ask an Samsung service technician examine the Samsung washing machine control boards and user interface boards. Testing the controls usually requires live voltage checks. We don’t recommend that you do a live voltage test on your Samsung washer, because those tests are dangerous.


Replace the Samsung washer’s main control board:

The main electronic control board, also known as the mother board, is responsible for the timing and execution of the washer component functions. It is responsible for the fill valves as well as the drive motor, and the drain pump. Replace the Samsung washer’s timer. The cycle selector, also referred to as a timer, is the dial that you can use to control the frequency of the Samsung washing machine with mechanical controls. The timer causes the washer to go through its cycles, starting with the initial filling and ending with the its final spin. Replace the timer if it fails to advance the washer through its cycle.

Replace the Samsung washer’s user interface board

The user interface board has buttons that are used to configure the wash cycle. Replace the user interface board in case one or more of the buttons don’t work. In the end it is clear that a Samsung washer that doesn’t work at all can be a traumatic and overwhelming problem to resolve.
