    I don't think the problem is in the pipes or such. Machine should flush the compartment with shower. My problem seems to be that the shower comes in only one of three compartments. Any idea where to look the solution?

I had the same problem. It was the solonoid for the cold water inlet. The conditioner solonoid also has since gone. Replacement dual cold water / conditioner inlet part was under $30 from Stokes

Samsung Washer,less than year old. Not every load and not every item but periodically something will come out with stains not previously on the item.


Hi,

This is common, if the machine does predominantly COLD washes.

Over a period of time, there is a build up of soap scum (washing powder/fabric softener etc) inside the machine, caused by using excess soap powder/detergent.

To recitfy this, fill the empty bowl (no clothes) with a solution of HOT water & CITRIC ACID (found in the baking isle of your grocery shop) on HI Water level. Set the machine to wash cycle, then drain.

Fill again with same solution, but leave solution inside the bowl overnight.

Drain next day, then follow with 1 single HOT wash (no clothes) on HI water level again.

The scum should be gone...

The hot flush should be done at least every 6 months, but this can be dramatically reduced if you use less soap powder (Samsung machines do not require as much powder, as do other machines)

I read about liquid detergents and fabric softners not being the best to use in the machine so I used powder for the first time the other evening and the smell seemed to ease a good bit. its not gone fully but I will continue with the powder and see how I get on.

WASHES BUT WILL NOT SPIN


Hi,
if it,s 7 years old. you,ve had your moneys worth. Scrap it and buy a new one.
as a repair solution, Check that the machine is emptying.
And that the pump has,nt got a coin/badge or anything else wedged in it.

Fabric softener compartment problem.


I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help
