Question about Samsung Washing Machines
My washer will not drain and it makes a weird sound. I need a technician to come to my house. Do you know the nearest one available?
If there is a drain issue, sometimes there is an obvious solution. Check the drain hose for any kinks, as well as checking any lint filters in or on the drain hose. Is there a lint sock on the end that's full? Perhaps the drain line itself is plugged. You will want to make sure that the house drain system is not backed up or plugged. Always make sure that the washer drain hose is above the level of water in the drain tub. Some Whirlpool/Kenmore washers make use of a side-check valve near the tub outlet which may get clogged. A standpipe should be at least 1 1/4 inches in diameter, and never seal a drain hose into a standpipe. This can lead to back-siphoning. You also want to make sure that the standpipe is less than 96 inches in height.
Pump problems show various symptoms. Sometimes the pump will lock up and seize. If the motor is running, it will continue to try to turn the pump. In the case of belt-driven pumps, the belt may break or burn through. The pulley may shear off. If there is enough tension on the belt, and the motor continues to try to turn it, you may wind up with a seized motor as well. The pump itself may have seized bearings, be jammed by clothing or another object; or the impeller blades may be broken off. The usual fix is to replace the pump.
If you think your pump may be jammed, drain out your tub and remove the hoses. Look inside the hoses and see if there are any obstructions. Feel around inside the pump inlets for anything that may be jamming the pump itself. You can also use long-nosed pliers to feel around inside the pump for any items that may be causing a jam. If you haven't found a jam, and you still believe there may be a jam in the pump, you can completely remove the pump from the washer and inspect it more closely.
Occasionally, transmission gears may become worn, or some other internal part may go bad. Some older washer models have an electric-mechanical shifter. If it won't shift, it's best to call a professional appliance repair person to address this issue. If your transmission is leaking oil, there are really only two options at this point, either run it until it dies completely, or replace it now.
A heavy wash load may cause some thumping sounds as a spin cycle starts, but if it continues, your load may be unbalanced. Open the washer and try to balance the load
Check to see if the washer is level from front to back, and from side to side. Check to see if the floor beneath the washer is sturdy and stable enough for the fully loaded washer. Is the load unbalanced? If your washer load is unbalanced, stop the washer, even the load out, and restart it.
An unbalanced load is the usual cause of this, but the leveling legs being extended very far can play into the washer walking around. Many times a front loading washer and dryer just seem to vibrate a lot. There is a fantastic product called Shakeaway that will really reduce vibrations and vibration noise
