Question about Washing Machines
Have a samsung p1253 machine, its 13 months old so just out of warranty. Had to have the water pump replaced after 1 months so should have known we were going to have problems. Anyway i noticed the countdown was suddenly giving random digits it was on 0 then 49,58,38, etc so i turned it off and then back on a few mins later, It was going through the cycle fine this time until it got to 9 mins remaining on spin. It started spinning slowly clockwise then anti clockwise but would not spin fast it took about 30 mins for it to countdown to the end but the washing was still soaked. I then removed all the washing from the machine ( a few bed sheets ) then tried a spin cycle and it was fine but as soon i as put one sheet back in the machine would go to spin fast, then i could hear a slight knocking and the machine would just repeat the slow spin and take ages to finish agian leaving the sheets soaked. We have noticed lately that the machine was getting more vibrations when spinning fast and had to constantly level it off but then it would un level itself after a few weeks. I have read that it has 'Fuzzy logic' and if it detects excess vibration etc it will try 7 attempts to nomalize, could something have come loose therefore increasing the vibration resulting in the 'fuzzy logic' thing to come in to effect?
Any help appreciated as with 2 young girls you really need a washing machine to work properly. Many thanks
I found a solution on another site. At first I didn't think it would work, but it did....
The samsung washer is very sensitve to balance. Although you may feel you have all of the feet tight to the floor....run the spin cycle, as it runs up to the middle speed, watch each foot closely, one of the feet will lift up and down just a tiny bit (or more)
Lift that corner slightly and Tighten that foot. Continue to run the spin and watch the feet, make sure none of them move at all.
Mine immediatly went up to the faster speed and wrang out the clothes like it did the first day i got the machine. Once done, be sure to LOCK the feet with the ring at the top.

LE means locked rotor or overload in motor. Check for binding or mechanical resistance. check motor winding resistance. Also check 3 pin connector in motor harness, harness between stator and main board or Hall Sensor on motor could be defective

SOURCE: samsung p1253 hole in outter
Hi I take it that the outer drum is made from plastic the only thing that would cause this problem is a large coin got into the drum and as the machine was spining the force made it hit the outer drum and chip it making a hole

SOURCE: Letters UE on display
UE = Unbalance Error
Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.
