Question about Samsung WF203ANW Front Load Washer

Water in drum

I have the exact same problem, new samsung front load washer has odour. when I turn the drum there is a swishing sound which sounds like water. I assumed the water was being trapped in the drum which was causing the odour. I had a Samsung repairman come out and he told me there was a ring around the drum that has oil in it which is the sound I'm hearing. I honestly don't believe him, I know the difference in sound between oil and water and I believe it is water. Does anybody have the facts on this?

The swish water sound that you hear in the drum is normal. There is some liquid in the drum for balancing. The washer doesnt use that liquid for laundry. The odor smell - you can get rid of it by cleaning your washer. Run empty cycle with bleach and hot water at least once a month. Also use washer cleaner - Tide recommended for a nice cleaner smell. You can get it from any supermarket.

WF218ANB noise like a bag of rocks being shaken.


This is a direct result of Samsung's Vibration Reduction Technology(VRT). There is a hoop at the front and the back of the drum holding 18 ball berrings in each hoop (36 in total). These balls use centrifugal force and automatically move to the opposite side of where the load is unbalanced and balances it out. It is only in the washing machines, not dryers.

Kenmore front load washer when spinning sounds like a jet engine. It actually hurts you ears and you cannot shout loud enough to be heard. Spins out fine but is so loud.


It's probally the bearings are going bad. If you try to turn the drum by hand and it does not turn smoothly or has a rumbling sound, it means the bearings are bad. I had the same thing happen to my washer. Water seeped past the seal and the water started to rust out the inner bearing. You need to pull the washer apart to get to the bearings if you are handy. If not, the parts and labor are more than the price of a new machine.

Samsung Front Load washer has odour


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

Ideset front load washer


If no water is entering the drum, and it is not leaking out anywere, then there can be no water coming in at all, unless the pump is coming on right away and pumping the water out., check the waste outlet pipe as it is filling, and see if water is discharging from hose
One other possibility is that the belt is off and the whining niose is the motor turning on it's own with out turning the drum.
This being the case, u probably wouldn't see any water in the drum, due to the small amount that they take in.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
