Update front load washer WF45K6200AW/A2. I was notified I achieved the rank of Astronaut for my contributions to the community. My only contributions are what did not fix my washer’s rinse and spin issue. I replaced cold and hot water inlet valves, main control board, pump and pump asymbly, pressure (water level) switch, checked level, checked drain, tried empty load, calibrated multiple times, checked voltage. None of these attempted solutions solved the issue. I have decided to limit my loss to what I have already incurred and take my Astronaut rank and and seek out a new washer ( not Samsung).
First time on the forum. My WF45K6200AW/A2 is having a similar problem and I'm hoping someone from Samsung can contact me with a solution. I have done all the maintenance in the manuel and recalibrated multiple times. In all settings it gets stuck in the rinse spin cycle, timer counts down, then goes back up and repeats. I've even manually put it into spin only and it still repeats the spin cycle multiple times. It does not show any error codes. The unit has been upstairs in a drain pan for since Jan 2017 and worked fine until July 2018. I have also done all the Smart Clean sessions. I have a Lowe's extended warranty, as the unit is out of Samsung warranty, and had a tech out to look at it earlier this month (Aug 2018). He said to take it out of the drain pan. Did this and the problem started again after a few loads. I'm not sure if this is a bad sensor, motherboard, timer, or another parts issue. Just looking for some guidence. I have the warranty to pay for repairs but would like to know where to start as this problem seems to be ongoing and unsolved.
I definitely understand your concern. You would need to proceed with service as this issue requires service. As the unit is under an extended warranty, you would want an authorized technician to perform the service. Thank you for being a loyal Samsung customer and welcome to the Samsung Community Forum.
Can you elaborate on what the possible fixes may be? It doesn't seem like anyone posting here has had success. I just want the best chance of this being resolved and knowing where to look may help.
If the washer did not cost so much I would find the situation with the DC error code funny. Sad a representative from Samsung states "I would not be able to make that determination." when hundreds of people are having the same problem. My next step is a complaint to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, referencing this thread along with a quote from an authorized Samsung technician of $389.95 to fix the problem. Find it interesting a company has a known problem for years and will not fix the problem (not that they can't. They won't).
I recommend everyone who has had or is having this problem contact the Consumer Product Safety Commission. With the thrashing that occurs prior to stopping leaves a safety concern to any individual near the washer or your laundry room (in my opinion).
The springs on the suspension rod are shot. Go to this video first to learn how to remove the top and then go to this video to see how to repair the spring by clipping an old radiator hose around it to keep the spring from compressing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25kVSQqNq2Q and then go to this one to see how to easily repair the spring using zip-ties and an old radiator hose. It worked on mine and was a very simple to accomplish.
Mine done the same thing will go through every cycle but does not spin. They replaced everything in my washer and still didn’t work my washer was only a year an half old at the time. The only things that has not been replaced is the shell the wiring and the computer in it. They literally replaced motor rotor direct drive assembly tub I mean everything would love to find someone to fix it I have a lg now and I hate it
Number of things,for a washer to not spin out.
Broken door latch (if door doesnt lock)
Bad computer board
Clogged clean out filter (left hand side of front load washer,careful, will dispense a lot of water.
Sensor where the rotor is at sometimes causes it.
Unfortunately Samsungs and Lg washer are manufactured closely the same,also lasting 2-5 years speaking from experience,I have a old school washer and dryer,never looked back.
