Why Won’t My Samsung Washing Machine Advance To The Next Cycle?

An unresponsive Samsung washing machine could be a frustrating experience, especially if it fails to progress to the next cycle. The issue could leave you with a pile of damp clothes that are in dire need of cleaning. Understanding the possible causes of the reason your washer won’t proceed into the next cycle could save you time and money by avoiding the needless repair or replacement. We will discuss some common reasons your Samsung washing machines may not advance into the next cycle, and give some advice on how to get it back in normal operation.

The type of washer that you are using will determine the reason a Samsung washer will not move to the next cycle.

If the lid switch on a top load Samsung washer is broken and the washer is not able to move to the drain or spin cycle. A Samsung washing machine that won’t complete the cycle may have a damaged timer or an inoperable pressure switch on the water level.

A bad shifter assembly, or a failing drain pump can cause a top-load vertical modular (VMW) washer to stop mid-cycle. The washer can also stop mid-cycle if there’s excessive suds.

For a front-loader the door of the washer may be damaged. A broken lock assembly, a malfunctioning main control board, or malfunctioning motor control board could prevent the washer from finishing the cycle. When the washer detects a problem, this type of Samsung washer can send an error message in digital format to the computer. The cycle is stopped.

These repairs could help you solve your Samsung washer problem

Replace the Samsung lid on the washer

Top-load Samsung lid switch on the washer is an safety switch that will check whether the lid is shut. The lid has to be shut when the basket spins; if the washer incorrectly senses that the lid has been opened, it won’t spin and drain immediately after washing.

Top-load washers require that the Samsung washer lid is closed before the motor that drives the washer can start. A lid that is opened prevents certain top-load washers from filling.

If the lid switch doesn’t detect whether the lid is shut change the switch.

Install the Samsung washer shifter assembly

Mounted on the bottom is the shifter unit, also known as the actuator-in-a top-load washer. The motor of the shifter assembly shifts the drive system’s settings between spin and agitation mode. The direction of the drive system is monitored through a sensor that is mounted on the shifter. The washer will stop when the sensor, motor or mechanical components of the shifter assembly fail and send an error code. Replace the Samsung shifter assembly in the event that it malfunctions.

Change the Samsung washer door lock assembly

Samsung’s front load washer lock includes a security switch to determine if the door of the washer is shut and also a latch. If one of these components fails while the door is open, the door won’t close; however, if one of the components fails when the door is closed, the door will not open. Replace the entire unit if any component fails.

Replace the Samsung main control board of the washer

The main Samsung electronic controller board, also known as the mother board or mother board, is responsible for the timing and execution of the washer’s component functions. It is responsible for the fill valves as well as drain pumps, as well as the drive motor.

Change the Samsung washer timer

The timer — sometimes known as a “cycle selector”is the dial that you can use to control the cycle on the Samsung washing machine that has mechanical controls. The timer manages the Samsung washer’s cycle from filling until the final spin. If the timer does not move the washer through its cycles then replace it.

Samsung washer drain pump may be replaced or repaired

The Samsung drain pump drains water from the washer at time that is appropriate for the wash cycle. The bearing of the pump can become stuck, the seal can fail, or the impeller blades might break. The belt-driven pumps can fail, the seal could fail, or the pulley can be able to shear. A damaged pump may create a hum in the event that the washer gets filled. You can repair the pump in certain cases by removing obstructions from it or replacing a seal or fixing wiring problems. If the pump isn’t repaired or rebuilt, then replace it.

Replace the Samsung washer motor controller board

Samsung’s motor control often referred to as the circuit-control boards, is situated in front-load washers. It’s normally located at the bottom of washers next to the drive motor. It is responsible for monitoring and controlling the drive motor’s speed and direction for the spin and tumble actions that occur during the cycle. If the motor doesn’t run it’s possible that the motor control board may require replacement.

Replace the Samsung washer water pressure switch

The Samsung water level pressure switch is used to measure the water level in the washer. If the pressure switch for water level is damaged, the washer will not fill correctly. It might not fill in any way or overfill, even to the point of overflowing. If the pressure switch isn’t able to precisely detect and regulate the level of water inside the Samsung washer, it is time to replace it.

In the end, a Samsung washing machine that isn’t advancing to the next cycle may be a difficult issue which can cause disruption to the routine of your laundry. Understanding the possible causes and solutions for the issue will allow you to identify the issue and restore your machine to normal functioning. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple fix like a clogged hose or a more complex problem that involves the control board, diagnosing the issue could help you save time and money in the long-term.
