Question about Washing Machines
There is an unpleasant smell from the drawer and drum
After you are finished with the wash, leave the door open. Seriously.. you NEED to leave the door open so it can air out after each wash. Just a crack will do, if you close the door and seal it, bacteria will grow and make a bad smell. Your laundry room will smell bad for awhile at first but it'll clear out after several days. If you can't stand the smell, buy a kit in the soap isle that eliminates washer odor. Remember the kit is a temp solution, leaving the door open after using the washing machine is the real fix.

If this is a front loader see that u use only washing powder for FRONT LOADING MACHINES. Also possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine.

We had the same problem, It was a pair of sock stuck behind the seal in the drum blocking the water inlet to the drum. Like others we managed to get our fingers between the metal of the drum and the rubber seal near the detergent dispensor to remove the sock.

SOURCE: Detergent drawer
I ended up having to call Samsung support for this same question. Left to right two vertical bars = detergent (liquid or Powder) flower = softner, single vertical bar = bleach.
