Question about Samsung DC97-14875A Flange Shaft Assembly Clothes Washer

Open Question

What metal is the Samsung DC97-14875a Flange shaft made of?

I want to know what metal the flange shaft is made of because of 2 major problems with the flange itself. The 1st being the flange shaft has many voids which allows soap and debris to build up in the voids. This cause 2 problems and a possible 3rd. The 1st problem is the soap and debris never dries out. The old 1 I removed has been out for over a week and is still wet. This causes pitting and corrosion of the shaft which causes it to fail in 2 1/2 to 3 years. The 2nd problem the gunk that collects in the flange makes your clothes smell bad, almost like that hamper smell. The 3rd possible problem is the gunk that gets trapped in the flange may not distribute evenly which could cause you washer to go out of balance. So what I'm trying to figure out here is what kind of metal it's made out of so I can waterproof it. the 2nd step will be to back fill in all the voids with Waterproof silicone to prevent future gunk build up.

How much detergent are you using? Try using less detergent and softener in your loads. Too much detergent can leave clothes smelling similar to a wet dog, like you described.

SOURCE: Samsung Washer makes the clothes smell like mold

This can happen with any front loading washer, regardless of the manufacturer.

One of the first things to do is make sure you're using the He (High efficiency) laundry detergent and only use a small amount, about 3 tablespoons or less. The trick is to not use so much detergent that you start getting a buildup in your machine. Also, if you have heavily soiled clothes, pre-treat them instead of adding more detergent to your wash cycle. This alone will result in better results.

Also, be certain the washer is properly leveled in all directions and to make some slight changes in your wash day schedule.

By making sure the washer is properly leveled, it will operate better and help minimize odors, as the spin cycle will get more water out, etc.

The other tip, that has really helped in our house, is to do all the hot water (whites) as the last load. Since we do use bleach when we wash our whites, along with hot water, the washer's last load will have had the best sanitizing cycle run through it before being left for the next load another day.

With the bleach and hot water, the washer gets a nice clean disinfecting wash which helps eliminate odors, germs, excessive soap, etc. and leaves the washer fresher. By doing this, we don't have to purchase other (more costs and expense) additives to run through the washer to attack the odor causing germs and gunk.

What good is a more energy efficient washer if I have to always run a special tablet/liquid cleaner in it each week without any laundry in that wash load? Seems wasteful to me to be doing an "extra" wash just to wash the washer. So I'm not a proponent of having to always use another product every week or month to have a washer work like it should.

However, if you've got an existing (smelly/moldy) washer presently, I would recommend that you use a produce called Whirl-Out, which will help dissolve the buildup that your machine currently has and get it clean again. Then you can follow the steps above to keep it from causing you issues in the future.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hello there:
please follow these simple steps
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  1. Step 1 Balance your washing machine. Standing water breeds mildew and mold. A washing machine that isn't level to the ground stands a higher chance of not draining completely. Take a level and place it on the top of the machine along the front from side to side and then again along the side from front to back. If the machine is very off, you can adjust the feet to compensate or add something under one of the feet if it is not flat against the ground. Portable washing machines are especially prone to have standing water because they are moved around and not leveled each time.
  2. Step 2 Promptly remove your clothes at the end of a wash cycle. If you regularly leave the damp clothes in the washing machine for an extended period at the end of the cycle, you will have mildew in your clothes and your machine. The same is true if you put clean clothes in the dryer and they are not completely dry when the cycle ends and you don't go back for a few days to pull them out. Damp clothes in an enclosed space for days will mildew.
  3. Step 3 Leave your washing machine door open in between uses which gives the machine the opportunity to fully dry out.
  4. Step 4 Use white distilled vinegar in an empty machine. Run a load with only hot water and two cups of vinegar to clean out the machine and freshen the scent. Vinegar naturally eliminates odors and reduces the buildup of soap residue in the washer which contributes to mildew development. You can also add baking soda and/or bleach to the load for both their sanitizing properties as well as assisting in ridding the smell of mildew.
  5. Step 5 Regularly use vinegar when you wash your clothes. Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to the last rinse cycle. Vinegar has acidic properties but it is mild enough that it will not harm your fabric. It does dissolve alkalines in laundry detergent which makes for cleaner and softer clothes. The reduction of detergent buildup in your machine will help to also reduce the incidence of mildew.
  6. Step 6 If you have a front load washer, they are particularly prone to mildew and mold. Follow the manufacturers suggestion as to how much and what type of detergent should be used. It is generally less than the traditional top load washing machines. Once again, additional soap residue helps to breed mold and mildew. Also, pull the seals back from around the door and make sure there isn't a build up underneath them that needs to be cleaned out.
  7. Step 7 Finally, if you have done all of the above and nothing seems to work there are commercial products available that are recommended.

SOURCE: I can not seem to get rid of the mold smell from

I have a front loader and hated the machine for the very same reasons. A one shot fix does not exist but rather requires ongoing treatment (they don't tell you that when you buy the washer though).

Star by getting rid of the existing smell. There are products designed specifically for this problem. One such is "Affresh" but there are others. Most are available at stores that sell the machines and like everything else, on the internet too. Use as directed and once the smell is gone, maintain by using the steps below.

Firstly - discard all non-HE detergents. I know the "regular" detergents are cheaper than the HE counterparts, but these machines are designed for the low-suds types; the regular types leave a soapy residue because the machine doesn't use nearly as much water as your old top loader. So give them to your friends with top loaders instead of using them in your front loader.

Next, run a small load, with bleach and hot water only - no clothes as the last load for the day.

Thirdly, leave the door(s) open on the days not used. This includes any top door for detergents / softeners along with the main front door of the machine between washes. It need not be left wide open - but open enough to allow air in to help dry the interior.

Fourth, wipe down the interior after the last load of the day. Pay particular attention to the rubber seal between the drum and the door jamb of the machine.

Fifth, stop using fabric softener in the washer. Use a fabric softener dryer sheet instead. Limiting the products added to the washer to just bleach & HE detergents is best.

Sixth, use the washer cleaning product (Affresh etc.) as needed as a preventative step or to head off problems if / when they just begin to become noticeable.

If you follow all of these steps - the offending odors can be eliminated and prevented.

I hope this was very helpful and good luck!

I have a 1995 GMC Sierra extended cab 2 Wheel Dr. 5.0 have vibration replaced everything in the front and tires trued wheels check for being bent nothing everything is okay but found out if you get a load...


The drive line angles are at fault and they come less of a problem when the diff angle is changed from the load. If you have a centre bearing in the drive shaft then the height at which it holds the bearing will have something to do with your problem. basically the angle that the gear box flange sits (say 2 degrees from vertical) has to be the same as the flange at the centre bearing flange as the same as the diff pinion flange . If the centre bearing is too high then the angle at that flange will be less than the 2 degrees and a harmonic vibration begins . Have an engineering shop that specialises in tail shaft manufacture (Hardy Spicer) check it out for you and they will explain what I mean. There are web pages that have detailed diagrams to help. Just go google and type in tail shaft vibrations and faults.

Center bolt spins freely


There was probably a hole in the flange that you discarded that was used to put a pin/ nail/ bolt/ etc in from the body of the saw to hold that flange from turning while you did the nut up. Unless that hole is there you will have no way of holding the shaft to tighten the nut.

Oil Leak at exhaust flange


No major problem. The proper mix is 32 to 1 gas and oil. That equals 4 ounces of 2 stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. Do not use MOTOR oil in the gas. 10w40 motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. Tighten the exhaust flange.

  8. If rotating torque is low, tighten pinion nut in 6.8 Nm (5 ft. lbs.) increments until rotating torque is achieved.

    CAUTION If maximum tightening torque is reached prior to reaching the required rotating torque, the collapsible spacer may have been damaged. Replace the collapsible spacer.
  9. Install propeller shaft with reference marks aligned.
  10. Install half shafts.
