Samsung j1045/j845 becomes unbalanced and stops mid cycle

For the past week and half every time I put a load of washing on whether small or medium size on either short or regular (coloured) wash the machine stops either mid way through or near the end of the wash cycle with the error message UE (indicating that the load is unbalanced). Checking the load and readjusting it stops and shows the same error message within a minute or two of resuming wash after having checked and adjusted washing. Although its displaying the unbalanced load error message the washing is very rarely tangled and off balance. Could someone please advise. Not sure if this is fixable or whether we need to look at replacing it completely. This Samsung front loader (j1045) was purchased new 7 years ago.

the loud clattering noise you hear is the main bearing it needs replaced.the main reason for the repair men doing a runner is its not an easy job and takes time and know how.if i was you i would get some estimates on this job,i would guess they will be high because no one wants to do it.Would you not consider a new machine???????anyway good luck.adrian,,,,

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?

how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

My washing machine washed a load on the medium cycle but when it is time for it to drain the water it just stop the only thing it is doing is fulling back up with water and not doing anything else on

Not sure what you are saying, I assume the water is not pumping out at the end of the wash cycle. Is the water draining out at the end of each cycle? Is it spinning at all? Is the exhaust tubing clogged? Is the pump burned out or are you trying to pump it uphill too much. If it's stopping mid wash, try advancing it manually past where it's stuck and see if it continues. I have that problem, the tank fills with water and it gets stuck at the 6 minute changeover. It will run stuck at this point indefinitely if I let it. We just set a timer for the fill time, then manually advance it past this stopping point.

Samsung j1045 washing machine

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

Washer stops mid cycle

Hi there if the washer is doing this it may be detecting it is unbalanced or has too much in it and it will stop it from spinning as if it doesnt it will fly apart when spinning, try halving the load you put in it and if that doesnt help it may be the actual balancers and you may have to get an expert to rebalance it

Samsung J845 washing machine will not spin.

could be the dampers have failed or the drum mount is broken, try a spin with no clothes, if it is spinning with noise or the drum is not running true it will need major repairs.

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?

Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
