Samsung Top-Load Washer - DC Error Code
« on: September 10, 2015, 03:31:23 PM »

I keep getting a DC code with my Samsung washing machine.  It is level.  I've added clothes and taken away clothes.  I've crammed the sides of the drum with foam.  Nothing works to stop the dc code.  I even ran it empty and it stopped with the dc code.  Help !!

The washer was two years old in July.  I don't know whether to try new rods or a that sensor thing.

Push down on the bottom of the basket and see what kind of resistance it has. If it bounces a few times, you need new suspension rods.

I've seen this DC error code a few times and new suspension rods usually take care of the problem.

one out of 10 will suspension rods do the job. Take it outside and get a sledge hammer and fix it. This piece of junk might if you are lucky work okay for 2 and no more than 3 years and then the headackes come

all that sensor does is stops washer from spinning. So the customer better stand by the machine cause it is going to be doing it all thru the wash believe me this is a piece of junk. Sears and other warranty companys replace the units so as to not mess with this error code no more it is nortorious. Like i said 2 lucky if 3 year life span .
