My front loading washer puts water on the load at the wrong time. During the final spin cycle, water is being put on the load so when it’s done the clothes are sitting in a puddle of water. It even happened once when the load was completely finished – power was off and door was unlocked but water was still coming in the tub. I had to turn the water off at the faucet to stop it. Most of the time there are no error codes but occasionally the water gets too high and it gives an OE code.

You have a possible water inlet valve issue or the control board is malfunctioning…. more troubleshooting is needed.

Is it worth calling a repairman or should I just but a new machine?
This one is 5 or 6 years old and I wash 2-3 loads per day.
A control board sounds expensive.

Jean,
Check around with appliance repair companies, even use CraigsList to find techs who are out on their own and repairing appliances, they are usually licensed and come out to troubleshoot for about $25 US Dollars.
If you find or a repair person tells you the board needs to be replaced, check on Amazon for SAMSUNG WASHING MACHINE CONTROL BOARDS.
They are usually inexpensive and will likely fix the issue.

My Samsung washing machine WF8550NHW (WF8550NHW1/XTL). Its over 5 years old. The drum shaft was replaced two years ago. Past 3 months, it keeps giving 4E when it reaches 8 mins, I just hit start and it runs fine and completes. Today, it just shuts off every few mins. I unplug and wait for a min and plug it again and it continues for few mins and shuts off again, it happened several times, after 4 hrs the wash completed, I put it in quick wash 29 mins every wash from day 1. No clue what caused the problem. I checked water flow, inlet is fine, drain is fine, filter is clean no debris. After the wash completed, I removed the cloths and tried again, within few mins it shut off, I turned it on again and the water drained. Now no clue as to what to do.

Raghul,

The Samsung Washer 4E or NF error code indicates a water inlet problem or the machine cannot feed itself with water.
Make sure the source water tap is turned on and check the water pressure.
-Turn the machine OFF.
-Turn the water tap OFF.
-Remove the water hose from the tap and dispense the water into a sink.
-Remove the entire hose.
-Check for Kinks.
-Check for Clogs.
-Check if water supply is good.
-Check, remove, and then clean the first mesh filter.
-Check and clean the second mesh filter.
-Test the unit by turning it on and by performing a normal wash cycle.

If this does not fix the washer, you may need to replace the control board if it keeps shutting off.

It now makes a horrible noise, even on gentle agitation.
The inner (steel) drum has come loose from its supporting shaft, hits the outer (plastic) cylinder.
Is it repairable?

Very loud and EXCESSIVE spin vibration.
Had to shut it down for fear of some significant damage.
NO fault codes displayed.
Not an excessive load by far.
Rearranged the load, restart with same result.
Reduced the load and STILL this outrageous vibration.

The drain hose on the new Samsung washer is very long.
Standpipe top for discharge is at height of washer.
Not draining completely.
Not spinning.
The hose has a large loop because of its length.
Is the solution to cut the discharge hose to a shorter length to eliminate the loop?

We have a Samsung Washer Model # WF241ANW. We are getting no error codes. The control board works in that all the lights change and buttons work. The problem is when the start button is pushed some clicking noise but no action. Once it did start and only ran for 1/4 a cycle than would no longer run to finish the cycle.

DIY Project Help Tips 29 DIY Project Help Tips October 6, 2016 at 9:05 pm

Doug Coates,
If the Samsung Washer has no error codes but when you go to start it only clicks, you may have a motor capacitor issue, wiring problem, or a possible bad control board that is not communicating properly.
You can test the motor capacitor to be sure it is working. If the capacitor goes out, the washer motor will not start or run.
When the washer did run for 1/4 of a cycle, did the washer make any strange sounds?
What did the washer do the moment it died out in the middle of the wash cycle?
No flashing buttons or beeping sounds?
Did the washer still have full power when it stopped mid cycle?

My Samsung top loader washer only accepts washing on quick wash but other modes gives F and doesn’t allow to start.
At first it just filled up with water (overfilled) and then drained without spinning.
From there it doesn’t start on all other modes except quickwash, all other modes gives F error code.
What could be the problem? It was fine all alone, started out of the blue. it is 3 years old.

Ally Gaydon,
If your Samsung washer door has dropped slightly, then this means the door hardware has become loose and needs to be tightened.
Try and hold the washer door upward in the correct position while you tighten up the screws.

If the screws or hardware is not loose, the front load washer may have gotten bent downward.
If this is the case, you need to remove and replace the hardware that holds the door to the washer.
