Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.

Hi.

You need to check the drain filter located in front of the machine at the bottom, behind a trim panel or a service door. If the problem occurs again the machine is faulty and must be repaired. Parts such as drain system, drain pump, pressure switch and control panel may be responsible for drain problems.

Check the position of the drain hose. Ensure that the height is as specified by the manual or you get siphoning and drain does not end.

Access the drain filter. With most front loaders this located in front at the bottom in a corner, there should be a trim or an access panel.Top loaders have an access panel at the back, or more commonly the pump is accessed from underneath, bending the appliance on one side and securing it.

The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is often in control assembly. Clean the hose and the switch. One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch.The pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either reading voltages while machine is working or reading Ohms at the switch with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.

Here a page about drain/spin problem.

Start checking drain hose and drain filter. If machine is a front loader the drain filter access is located behind the door at the front bottom side of the machine.

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

My washing machine stops working, it shows 'dE' everytime i try to start a cycle, and i dont seem to be able to find out what it is... please help


DE MEAN'S DOOR ERROR,There is a little magnet that detects if the lid is open or closed & this magnet always falls off into the machine then pumped away. (If it gets past the pump with out jamming it).you can't just buy the magnet you have to buy a whole new top & most of the time this cause's the computer to fail as well,So it could end up costing a fortune even up to the amount you could have bought a new one my advice get rid of the samsung & buy a new lg the sooner you do that the sooner you start saving money in washing machine repairs.

De error code on samsung topo loader stops working


0E - OVER-FLOW ERROR

Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.

Machine stops with SE code


That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage
