20 Most Recent Samsung WF520ABW Washer Questions & Answers

The SUD error indicates an excessive amount of soap suds in the wash. It will be difficult for the machine to rinse / spin all the soap out during the cycle, and may need to be run thru the cycle again (do not add any more detergent!).


Stop using regular detergents! Front loaders specifically call for "HE" (High Efficiency) detergents as they require less detergent and clean better with the reduced amount of water in these machines. Look for your favorite brand and select the one with the distinctive HE logo show below:


Use only the amount as directed on the bottle - do not use too much. Clothes should come out clean and soap free - and the SUD error should no longer appear - if it continues - double check the amount of detergent you're using as it is probably still too much.

Good luck!

sounds like the drain pipe is too low resulting in Syphoning of water lift pipe above 24 inch floor level, this should cure...

LE1 is a low water error code. Does the water pump sound like it's trying to work/making some sound? Check around the base of your machine for water leaks. Make sure the water outlet hose isn't crushed, kinked or blocked and is routed above the base of the washing machine. If you suspect a blockage you can try to reverse flush it by unplugging the machine, fitting your garden hose into the drain hose and turn it on for a short period, then try to get the washer to operate. If the error code is still present you may need to drain the water out of the machine and remove the water pump from the base as there could possibly be an obstruction or foreign matter in the pump housing or the pump itself has failed.

This can only be because the drain pump is constantly working. Otherwise the machine would literally fill-up with water.

Turn the machine off & unplug it for an hour.
Then turn it back on & see if it's reset or if it gives you an error code.

I'd suggest that it's probably a failed control-board, but it's unusual to not get a fault/error code from a modern machine, when it has a fault.
Best of luck.
