Washer Repair / Samsung front loader 8e
« Last post by Krokokot on September 18, 2017, 07:13:18 AM »
Hello, I have a Samsung front loader from 2014, yesterday it began stopping abruptly while initial fill in, and then after I press the play/pause button once it starts filling again and then stops again. On the second time after the initial start, when I press the play/pause button it eventually displays the 8e error. Do you know what to fix ? I followed the FAQ and disconnected the washer from the mains for 30 sec and then ran another program - same.

You will see 4 tabs to line up. Some might be broken or damaged
 No problem just push back on with some force. The bolt will hold everything together.

It sounds like it thinks the door is open...  try putting it in self clean, if it just says door open and then cancels the clean cycle then the problem is either the door switch not engaging, possibly door switch being broken, wiring to the switch or possibly a bad board..   ran into the wall oven version of this once where the pin in the door switch wiring harness wouldn't properly engage with the board... oven thinks the door is open so won't heat, the lights stay on and pressing the light button does nothing because on this model that only turns the lights on when the door is closed...

Thanks.

When reconnecting the top and bottom, do I need to use a similar amount of force?

You have to carefully stand on both sides of the bottom of the agitator and yank up on the top half. Sometimes it takes several tries. Be careful not to damage the fins on the bottom of the agitator.

Any codes show up? Based on your description it sounds like a control board.

A few times I've found it to be the connecting wire harness. The contact points sometimes.  I'll use a file and clean the little metal contacts and bend them out so it has a tighter fit.

Washer Repair / Can't separate top half of the agitator from the bottom half
« Last post by giants1 on September 17, 2017, 05:08:40 PM »
The top of the agitator spins freely CW and CCW.  I removed the 7/16" bolt easily, but I cannot separate the top from the bottom.  I see a rubber washer still in the center of the shaft. When the bolt was in place, it surrounded it.

The agitator assembly spins with the lower half of the agitator.

I can clearly see that the agitator dogs are worn and need to be replaced, but the top is too deep for me to use my hand or a tool to pull out the agitator dog assembly.

Please help.  Thanks!

Heya,
Getting back into the trade after about a year away. Have about three years in the field and another three working behind the parts counter.

Thanks  :)
