  • Note that the washer door stays locked during the Sanitize cycle’s heating phase.
  • The door lock mechanism might take a short period to disengage after the cycle.
  • Should the door switch latch be defective, consider a replacement. Replace Samsung washer door latch if necessary.

2. Washer Does Not Drain or Spin

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • Start by checking the fuse or resetting the circuit breaker.
  • Make sure to straighten any bent drain hoses.
  • Remove any kinks from the hoses to ensure proper water flow.
  • Address any drain restriction issues promptly.
  • Ensure the door is closed before pressing the Start/Pause button.

  • Check that the water source faucets are fully open.
  • To initiate the washing process, press the Start/Pause button.
  • Verify that the Child Lock feature is not activated. To deactivate it, press and hold both the Spin and Soil Level buttons for about 6 seconds.
  • Prior to filling with water, your washer will perform a series of checks, including clicking sounds for door lock verification and a quick drainage test.
  • If the washer still doesn’t start, inspect the fuse or reset the circuit breaker as needed.

4. No Water or Insufficient Water

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • Turn on both water faucets completely to ensure adequate water flow.
  • Double-check that the washer door is firmly closed.
  • Straighten any twists in the water inlet hoses to promote better water flow.

  • To restart your washer, close the door and press the Start/Pause button.
  • Keep in mind that the washer will not operate, including tumbling or spinning, unless the door is securely shut.
  • At the beginning of a cycle, your washer may produce clicking sounds as it checks the door lock and performs a quick drainage.
  • Your washer might pause or enter a soak period during its cycle. If this happens, wait a little while as it should resume shortly.
  • Regularly check the screens on the inlet hoses attached to the faucets to ensure they are free from blockages.
  • It’s a good practice to clean these screens periodically to maintain optimal water flow.

6. Washer Fills with the Wrong Water Temperature

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • First, verify that both hot and cold water faucets are fully open.
  • Check if the temperature setting on your washer matches your desired water temperature.
  • Confirm that the washer’s hoses are correctly attached to the corresponding hot and cold faucets.
  • Perform a flush of the water lines to clear any potential blockages.
  • Inspect your home’s water heater. It should be set to provide at least 120°F of hot water at the tap.
  • Additionally, assess your water heater’s capacity and its recovery rate to ensure it meets your household’s hot water needs.
  • If the problem persists, disconnect the hoses from the washer and clean the screens within them. Sometimes, these hose filter screens can become clogged, affecting water temperature.

  • Check all hose connections to make sure they are tight and secure.
  • Verify that the end of the drain hose is correctly inserted and firmly attached to your home’s drainage system.

8. Wash Load is Wet at End of Wash Cycle

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • Opt for the High or Extra High spin speed option to effectively remove more water.
  • Utilize high-efficiency detergent to minimize over-sudsing, which can affect the spin cycle.
  • If the load is too small, consider adding a few more items. Very small loads can become unbalanced, leading to incomplete spinning.

9. Washer Has Excessive Suds

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • Always use high-efficiency detergent to prevent over-sudsing.
  • For soft water, small loads, or lightly soiled laundry, reduce the amount of detergent used.
  • Avoid using non-HE (high-efficiency) detergent as it’s not recommended for these washers.

10. Detergent Remains in Dispenser After Cycle

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • Ensure your washer is receiving enough water pressure, which is crucial for proper dispenser functioning.
  • When using granular detergent, make sure the Detergent Selector dial is positioned correctly, typically in the upper position.

11. Washer Has Excessive Vibration or is Noisy

Samsung Washer Fix/Solution:

  • Place your washer on a level surface. If needed, adjust the washer feet to stabilize the unit.
  • Confirm that all shipping bolts have been removed post-installation.
  • Keep the washer from touching any nearby objects, as contact can cause additional noise or vibration.
  • Ensure that the laundry load is balanced. An unbalanced load can cause significant vibration and noise during operation.

    Was looking how to calibrate this Model not finding any information thinking that would help

    Also cleaned filter.
    Nothing appears to be clogged.
    Ideas to try?

    Hello, our Samsung front load HE washer, WF210/220 is slowly filling with water after the wash cycle has stopped. This happens only sometimes and others it stays dry between cycles. We have cleaned out the Debris Filter at the bottom and it is still doing it occasionally. Is there a shutoff valve that may be getting stuck? Any suggestions?

    My model # wf42h5000aw
    Please let me know if you found a solution to this problem.

  14. We recently purchased a Samsung Front Load washer and dryer from a third party. The washer is SuperSpeed Steam VRTplus and the dryer is a MultiSteam VentSensor, sorry but I do not have the model numbers with me at this time. The dryer door was damaged a little in the move and I think that is why it is sort of leaking? When it runs on any cycle it gets really hot and water is on the floor around it. If the door is closed there is water everywhere (walls/top of dryer/floor). We originally thought it was the washer and had a service person come and look at it yesterday, they ran the washer and no leak. Then last night I washed a load of clothes and no leak but then when I tried to dry them with the laundry room door closed there was water everywhere. Can we just replace the door or door panel?
    Also, now neither machine will complete a cycle. The washing machine will get down to a 2 and then just keep running (no error code) won’t go any lower. When I pause the load and rearrange it goes up to 7 but then only down to 2 and will not end. The dryer gets down to 5 and then goes back up to 25 this is on delicate/more dry setting. Please help! We really like this set but need them to workl

  15. My samsung vrt steam front loader washer shows the error code t3. We unplugged the washer for about 10 min, then plugged it back in. Still shows error.

    Samsung front load washer with error code 5E means that the water is not properly draining out of the washer.
    Something may be clogged, jammed, or blocked and thus preventing water from draining out of the washer.
    Check filter for debris, check drain hose for positioning and possible clog, and be sure your washer is level.

  45. I have a WF60F1R Samsung front loading washing machine. One cycle which is two hours long and at the 1 o’clock position on the selection dial is is not showing the segments of display rotating CCW. The cycle worked just fine the first time I used it.

  47. I am unable to change the water temp on the display panel. It was fine yesterday today it is stuck on an icon showing a water level marker with an asterisk above , there is no display code showing, please advise if you can. Many thanks

  48. My samsung front load washer will dispense the detergent. WE use liquid HE. However when the washer is done I have a softener water mix filling my softener cup. I’m not sure if the softener is getting in the load or not. Not a single other problem with this washer. At first i tried raising the front of the washer about 1/2 a bubble on the level even though the manufacturer says to leave it level. This did not help so i put it back to level. Any suggestions.

  49. My machine stops midway through a cycle with the time distorted. It won’t finish a cycle it just stops with the “alarm” chiming.

  50. Our WF330ANW/XAA 01 front downloader does something similar. Our magic number is 28 minutes. Machine seems to work fine until the countdown timer reaches 28 minutes. No error codes.

  51. My washer machine not spinning, code nf. I am using some device for make water very clean but not using hot water. If my washer runs just with cold water can be that problem?

  52. Washer is showing error code fl. Door is locked but washer will not start and makes a clicking sound. Cannot get door open.

  53. Samsung wf42h5600aw/a2
    Runs down to 10 minutes in spin cycle and resets to 18 minutes over and over.
    -already replaced shocks all 4 – door lock and computer board. What else can cause this?

  54. Samsung model wf210anw/xac 01. Message from my tenant:

    There seems to be two issues;
    First of all, the compartment you put your liquids in, especially the fabric softener,
    always fills up with water during the cycle and remains in there till the next time you use it.
    The second and more troubling issue is there appears to be an issue with the timer. You set the cycle you want eg. it shows 27 minutes. The machine will not count down properly and it may still show 25 minutes, a full 10 minutes after it starts to cycle. So a supposed 1/2 hour cycle can take an hour to run. It’s very erratic. The clothes are still coming clean, I think, but taking forever.

  55. The control panel on my Samsung VTR front load washer turns on by itself and sometimes changes the cycle by itself too. Washer still works but this is annoying.

  56. Richard Ivan Chijioke

    My Samsung front loader washing machine started stopping at middle of operation and when it was confirmed that the PCB was bad it was changed but it started malfunctioning, the numbers no longer display correctly. Hope to get assistance.

  57. Dis assembled washer to replace arm assembly. Got everything back together and plugged it in and has no power outlet is good. Is there a reset button for the computer? Repaired a ground wire in the front that was damaged when removing the tub.

  58. My Samsung WF350ANW/XAA will not respond to any commands. The entire panel is illuminated (every button is on and the timer says 88:88) but no buttons are responsive to touch. I have tried cycling the breaker, unplugging for extended periods of time but no change. I made sure the drain pump was clean and not jammed. I replaced the door switch and even the main PCB panel but still no difference. As soon as I turn the power back on, the panel immediately lights up again and is unresponsive. I have verified all resistance tests are within specifications according to the tech service manual but since the panel is unresponsive I can’t enter service mode. I also don’t have any fault codes that I can tell since the panel is lit up like a Christmas tree. Any ideas of the next steps would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  59. Ours is doing the same thing. Spins down to 10 minutes or so and then resets and starts the rinse spin all over again indefinitely. The washer is less than a year old.

  60. Samsung FRONT LOAD VRT

    On quick cycle or any other cycle, machine shakes violently during spin but will go to the 7 min mark then stays @ 7 mins, we have to manually move to rinse & spin to get excess water out. 1 load takes like an hour + where should be 25 minutes. Legs are ok. Should we replace or is this a LESS expensive fix.

    Its $75 to get guy to come & look @ but on top is anything that needs to be fixed, so if going to be a couple hundred might as well buy another maybe?

  61. My Samsung Model# WF409ANW/XAA was stuck at 19 minutes for 3 hours during the wash cycle. I turned the washer off. I restarted the wash cycle and the washer filled with water but the drum would not turn, it would just vibrate like it was trying to turn, but will not. I put it in the spin only cycle and got the same thing. I turned off the breaker to the washer for 10 minutes and still got the same thing. I remove the inspection plate off the back and could see the motor on the back of the drum. It would try to turn and was turning itself. I am getting no codes. The washer will pump all the water out of the drum.

  62. Our Samsung Front Load Washer will not fill with water in the Normal setting but works in all other settings. There are no error codes. Model # WF363BTBEUF/A2.

  63. Turned samsung eccobubble on starts filling with water then programme stops..
    Turned it off at the mains put it back on stil the same.
    What is going on..
    Checked drain for fluff et ok…

  64. Clint Jorgensen

    My bubble wash vrt plus 10kg has a fault where it will not commence cycle. It drains then it fills and flushes the detergent tray but then will chatter the drum ie like it attempts the turn but applies the drum brake at the same time. Will do this for half hour before coming to a stop. During this time the time counter drops a couple minutes at most. It does not finish the cycle or do anything else. It doesn’t matter if the drum has a small or large load or any load at all it does the same thing. I have ran the calibration sequence many times and it is most times unsuccessful at even completing that doing the same chatter motion with the drum and then draining over and over. The drum spins very freely by hand however so it isn’t a belt or bearing issue and on the odd occasion it does complete the cycle as normal it turns the spins and does everything with smooth precision. I have replaced the main pcb for new in the top rear of the cabinet and the problem remains the same. I am thinking of replacing the front display/touch panel next.

    On the quick wash or delicate cycle, it adds a little water then counts down for 3 min, stops and waits. No error code….it does nothing. It is just stuck. On normal cycle, it adds water, and runs for 3 min then tosses the clothes forever but the minutes never change. It is just stuck.
    Why is it sticking at this point? We just had a repair man come. I paid $350 to fix it. He fixed the spin part of the cycle but not this..????

  71. Over the temp setting on my samsung wf50k7500a washing machine, there are 6 symbols. The one which looks like a drum with a diamond was flashing along with the word end at the end of a cycle, but the cycle did not end? When I hit Start/Pause it ended. Why didn’t it end on it’s own?

  72. Samsung front load washer model #WF209ANW/XAA–grinding noise of metal on metal during spin (bearings?) along with excessive vibration; excessive movement of drum back and forth, front to back, by hand. (New shocks installed in 8/2017) Any suggestions???

    When a Samsung washer gets the error code 4E, this means the washer does not receive water.

    SAMSUNG WASHER ERROR CODE NF or 4E = No Water Feed = Washer Not Filling.
    This means that there is an issue that is preventing your washer from receiving water into the water inlet valve.

    Here is a page to help you with fixing the Samsung washer error code.

The washer spins at a medium speed, it will not go to the fast spin to get all the water out of the clothes. The unit just stays on 10 mins. and just spin at the medium speed. I eventually have to turn it off because it stayed on 10 mins for over an hour. Can someone help me please?

  81. Hi our Samsung front loader will sometimes, lock after a cycle for a long period of time… Hours, to be exact. Once in a while it will unlock itself after the cycle ends. Recently the temp inside is, always hot. Any idea what the issue could be?

  84. My Samsung Eco Bubble Washing machine sounds like is not working even if the sound button is on.

  85. Had a plumber come to the house and he used a hydro-jet machine to clean the drains and now the red light flashed.

  86. Have a Samsung eco bubble front loader that after 2 years of washing has developed a problem that does not produce an error code, except that we note that the cycle selection light and symbols on the panel are flashing, whereas before they were static. The machine takes in water and drains ok but the drum either does not start rotating or stops after a short time into the cycle. It looks as though it wants to turn but cannot move more than a few cms. When emptied it turns by hand easily. The bottom filter is clean, no pipes are fouled and the machine has stood unplugged overnight. Any ideas???

  87. Shelina Khanum

    Hi I have a Sumsung ecobubble washing machine and the front dial to change the settings of the wash is not working and the child lock keeps flashing.

    None of the other buttons are working either. The buttons make the usual sound when I press it but doesn’t change any of the settings (I. E from 40 to 60 temp).

    Please help urgently!

  88. I have a Samsung WF42H5600AW front loader washing machine. When I set the wash to type to “Normal” it will do the quick initial drain but when the water is supposed to start it will cut off and then back on repeatedly and never start the cycle. I can change the wash type to any other on the dial and it will work just fine.

    So what’s going on and do I need to call a service tech? Is this an easy fix?

  89. I would love to see and update to this post if you have any luck. Mine started doing this exact thing last night. Realized after 3 hours the same load had been in an infinite loop; spun and rinsed roughly ~4 times at least.


  91. My washer was working fine until recently.
    Now Water is coming out the soap tray area all hose are connected correctly and I can’t seem to find a problem what can I do?

  92. My samsung washing machine stops in the middle of washing and the display icons blinks (no code). The washer turns a few cm, then a click sounds, and it falls back down.. What can be wrong?

  93. When the cycle is done, the washer turns itself off. The door is locked. I have to turn the power on to get it to unlock. Also, when I first start the load of laundry, the door locks, then unlocks, then locks again. Your help would be appreciated.

  94. DIY Project Help Tips

    Remove the “TRAY” by pushing a small strip and pull out.
    Wash it out with hot water in sink.
    Reinstall into your Samsung washer and it should now be unclogged.

  95. Put powdered detergent in the “liquidity only” section – now it is clogged. Liquid soap will not enter the cycle. How do I clean this?

  96. Mine does the same at 1and a half years. For $75 a repairman came and said to do self clean with vinegar. No results. I have been in touch with Samsung. I want to know if this is a problem which can be solved or do I need a new washer. I am still working on this.

    If you watch closely you will see water added before the minutes jump back.

    My washer is the same model.

  97.

    my inverter direct drive top loading washing machine is 3 years old and is not completing the full cycle, it starts the cycle then stops and gives a IE error message..it is a WT1101CW MODEL..S/NO 403PNEBON004. every now and again it washes a full cycle after numerous false starts..what can be the cause of this. please help….frustrated.

  100. Deanna Castello

    Washing machine will start the cycle, run for about 30 seconds then stops. No error code displays. No alarms sound. Simply does not ‘run’ through the actual cycle. Still indicates original wash time. Door opens fine. No locks are on.

  101. Hi. The drum in my front loader is hard to turn by hand. I pulled it apart and checked the bearing on teh direct drive motor, and it seemed fine. I put it back together and then the drum would spin fine by hand – maybe spin around 3 or so times after giving it a pus. Then i ran a drum celan wash, and after that the drum was tight to run by hand again. The machine is quiet load. Is it normal for the drum to be tight to turn by hand? I couldn’t find anything jammed between the inner and outter drum when i looked through the heat element slot. Is the drum ALWAYS suppose to spin freely by hand? That is, if you give it a push should it spin around a few times Currently it only spins about 1/5th of the way after giving it a push by hand.

  102. Hi Mandy – we have this problem as well. Machine was new yesterday, we’ve done three washes and now it has the same problem as you. Did you get a solution from anyone?

  103. Jason Larkins

    We have a Samsung WF42H5000 front load washer with VRT.
    Approx 3 years old and has worked fine until this past weekend.
    Spin cycle spins and drains but the clothes are wetter than they have been previously.
    The time gets down to about 6 minutes then jumps back to 12 minutes, then gets to 6 minutes and jumps back to 12 minutes again and repeats that until you stop the washer.
    Loads are the same as they have been, detergent is the same as it has been. No excessive vibration.
    Filter has been cleaned. any ideas or suggestions as to what may be going on or how to fix it?

  104. My Samsung WF203ANW/XAC does the same thing …sounds like a jet engine when it gets going in the spin cycle…I’ve been told it is the bearing but I think not because I have allowed this to go on for months with no affect on the washing machine…I believe it is the electrical motor that drives the belt that drives the tub…any thoughts?

    My Samsung WW12H8400EW/EE will not start any sykle.
    The drum won’t rotate. It moves on centimeter back and forth. But won’t go. It can work fine half sykle and then trouble again. I can film the problem if that helps and send on mail.
    Is it motor or main board trouble. No codes in display. If I leave the machine it goes on pause in program.

  107. My Samsung washer just died, what I mean is I lost power on the front display, I check the the plug circuit breaker and checked out good, the door is locked, my wife washing clothes when it just stopped, can you help me?

  108. Same thing happens to me. Don’t know if the drain is plugged somewhere or not. Have you found out what is causing it?

    Daniel kaufman,
    If your Samsung washer LED screen has NO POWER, you most likely have the board unplugged possibly from vibration.
    Unplug washer, remove panel, check to be sure the main control board wire harness is plugged in and secure.
    If it is, the board may be dead and you need to remove and replace.
    Troubleshoot with a multi-meter before ordering a new control board.

    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.

    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.

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

  142. 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.

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.

    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?

    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.

  174. I tried to start a load, but it wouldn’t fill with water. A red light on the led display has come on and I don’t know what it means. It is a circle with a line through it. I stopped and restarted several times and it now works, but the red circle remains. There are no codes being displayed along with this red circle.

    Ian Dyer,
    Samsung Front Load Washer Error Code 3E = indicates a drive motor tach fault.
    1 – Unplug The Washing Machine for 5 minutes
    2 – Check Wire Connections On the Drive Motor
    3 – Check Wire Connections On the Control Board
    4 – Check the Hall Sensor

  177. My Samsung Eco bubble front loader washer is showing error code 3E. Restarting the cycle brings up the code at the “spin” section of the cycle at each of 2 attempts. Any thoughts as to what is the problem?
