Question about Samsung Washing Machines

Open Question

We have a Samsung SW65V9W top load washing machine. For the last few weeks we have started getting black specks on all our washing. It seems to be getting worse. We usually only wash in Cold water but I have run the machine twice now in hot water with no clothes in machine to flush the specks away but they still keep coming back. Both filters (internal and pump) are cleaned regularly. It seems to be some kind of residue build up that is now flaking off from somewhere. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Black particles in clothes after using a top loading samsung fully automatic washing machine

You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal.
If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.

SOURCE: whirlpool washing machine

It sounds like the porcelein on the inner or outer tub is damaged allowing rust to form.
Another possibility is that there are iron deposits in the internal hoses that are loosening.
I would (assuming you can afford the water wastage) run the machine on 'full load' and 'hot' several times with no clothes in it to see if it will flush out.

SOURCE: cold water will only trickle into washing machine

Check your water pressure if thats good check the screens on your hoses, if thst good go to the water inlet valves that allow water into your tub

SOURCE: I always wash in cold

Usually this happens when you do wash on cold water only.The soap will remove dirt but with it comes along oils and other stuff will be dissolved but is all concentrated down at the washers bottom.And since the water is cold the oils and scum will solidify as soft scum and of course they do decay in due time and then the smells come.Yes you are right you can just fill a small load of hot water only with a bit washing detergent and let it go through a cycle(without the laundry).Or try going to a store where this product is sold for cleaning washing machines-Tide,clorox and Magic washing machine cleaners.

SOURCE: f21 error followed by f5

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm sorry but 'F21' (along with F16,18,20 and 22) for Whirlpool (Kenmore) washers decodes as 'control unit failure' rather than a specific drain problem (which tends to be indicated by 'F2').
I fear it calls for an engineer. Sorry again ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck.

My samsung top loader washing machine sw65v9w won't stop filling with water

If the water stops when you stop the cycle, then the pressure sensor is at fault. If you need to turn the water supply off to stop it, then the water inlet valve is at fault.

Black specks on cloths after washing

I can't solve your problem, but I can say I have the same problem. I think grease is getting past the seals and getting into the washing basket with the cloths. I have a repair guy coming tonight. Hopefully he will confirm and fix. My machine is 9 years old and never a problem..till now.

Spin Option

The problems posted by kim875 and kirsty2 all seem to be the result of faulty signals from the electronic board. This seems to be a real problem with this model machine. I would try to get board replaced under warranty , if at all possible.
