WF218ANW/XAA Samsung Washer
« on: April 29, 2015, 12:22:44 AM »
I have a samsung washer for service and had to replace the pump motor. After doing so, I was very careful in reassembly, and for for some reason this washer will stop 11 mins just before drain and final spin. i suspect the interlock switch, even though the switch seems to operate correctly. My question, without having to go to the diagram I don't have. Could the Interlock be causing me this problem intermiitently...

Stop as in no power?
or stop as in it stalls there?
If it's stalling check the drum struts. If when you put it in spin with no clothing do you hear any clicking from the inner drum support?

Actually, there is power present. It just stops, and one time I could get it to run rinse and spin and get past 11 to 10 and then it would finish out. To tell you the truth it's pretty strange how things go on this. I found myself unplugging it and starting again, and still it will give me no code, and stop at 11 mins. I checked all connections close. I can't seem to find these symptoms online. The customer had recently had the tub replaced under a warranty they were carrying.  PCB ?

Ok replacing the tub is one item that could cause the issue that we can check off the list.

Wondering if they changed the tub struts too, should have.
I did have one that stalled at the 11min mark. Didn't shut down but just hung at the 11 min mark. Customer after waiting a few hours and it didn't finish would shut it down. Restart and put in to a spin only cycle to wring out the water.
I replaced the tub struts and the pressure switch and hose.
Did you discuss soap usage? If so what did they say?

Thanks for getting back. It did turn out to be the board. What seems to me happened was the pump failed and the board kept trying to keep the pump in activation, naturally the water went nowhere. After a time, the amperage built up enough to damage the board. After the  replacement, and the new pump, you could tell right off the machine was acting differently. All is well...
