Is it possible for the homeowner to fix a Samsung dishwasher that has the "heavy" light blinking and will not run? The manual says it is a leakage problem but no leakage is detected.


You are correct, the HEAVY light blinking indicates a leakage problem. Remember that the Samsung DW's (dishwashers) have a base that holds the water so it doesn't run out on your floor. You will have to pull your DW out so you can remove the right-side metal panel. Pull the insulation up so you can look inside. You will see the floor of the plastic base has a low spot in it, and the water sensor is located over that area. That area must be completely dry (1/8" of water will trigger the error). Once you sop up and dry all the water there, you can start up the dishwasher and watch for leaks. The most common places are the drain pump (also visible on the right-hand side) or the drain hose. And sometimes, there is no leak, but water got in there because you used too much detergent (or the wrong detergent), and it caused it to overflow into the base.

I have an E1 message on my samsung front loader, can you tell me what that means?


Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
E1 in Samsung Front Loaders: It means the machine has detected an error in inlet water filter or the water pressure. Some of my sources indicate E1 could also be a leakage error It could all mean a faulty sensor but you should check th water lines, the door seals and the floor beneath the machine for tell-tale signs of a leaking system. Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
If you can fill the washer, but it faults with and E1, and can go no further, my research shows a common cause for the problem is the PVC tube connecting the pressure sensor to the drum has experienced a problem. In some modern washers, the water level is measured and regulated with a pressure sensor connected to the tub with a plastic tube. As the water level rises inside the drum, the pressure rises inside the sealed tube. The tube can sometimes become detached or even plugged with lint, soap or wash grime. Check the pressure sensor line to make sure it is attached to the drum and is completely unobstructed by foreign objects or deposits. If so, clean the debris and/or reattach the tube to the drum and try running starting a cycle. If you don't get the E1 code - Hooray, everyone has clean clothes again :-)
If this does not work, here is a link to a Washing Machine User Blog which might be able to offer more experts and more specific information http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/washers

ASKO D3432XLB keeps running, draining but hasn't gone into the wash cycle yet. won't turn off even when I turn the power button off.


Water on lower bottom. Leakage or blocked drain pipe. Is common error. The machine will act like this so that water wont get on your kitchen floor, in case of fault on inlet valve. The machine indicates overflow. Dry out water on bottom, and than the machine will work normaly. But check for leakage. Just in case.
