Samsun VRT Washer Model WF337AAG/XAA; Serial #348054AP500756Z will not turn on when pushing power button. The Washer was purchased at Lowes on July 7, 2007 is used by a couple of Senior Citizens. On Monday the washer turned itself on - I was in another room and had not turned it on - the last load of wash went thru cycle just fine on Saturday afternoon - On Monday I heard it turn on and I went in and turned it off - at first it did not shut off - the door was open the entire time - then when I pushed the power button the 2nd time - it turned off - then I did not think about it or use it until this morning - and now it will not turn on Any info will be appreciated

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

SOURCE: GE model WHDVH626FWW Front load washer won't run, can't open door

your drain pump is likely clogged,and is equipped with a clean out port. remove lower cover by 3 phillips screws on bottom front. you see the drain pump up front to the right. If there is a lot of water left in machine then have bucket/pan avail and plenty of towels. wet dry shop vac helps. you can open door and remove clothes from here. reach up on right side to where the latch is on inside (you have to go by feel) and find small round pull tab on bottom of latch/lock asm, and pull down, this will unlock door. carefull of water level when opening door.
to fix problem, unscrew cap on pump asm. water will pour out, and a tray will slide out with debris clogging pump. look inside housing for remaining ****. using finger check impeller area on right..
reassemble. machine should work perfect now. Pump is designed to be cleaned out and will not void warranty. newer machines have access port cut in panel for this clean out area.

MY WASHER WAS DOING BASICALLY THE SAME THING. I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL FRONT LOADER MODEL #GHW9460PL0. MY HUBBY REMOVED THE 3 SCREWS FROM THE BACK OF THE WASHER, UNPLUG IT FIRST, AND TOOK THE TOP OFF. WE THEN CAREFULLY UNPLUG THE WIRES AND REPLUGGED THEM BACK IN 1 BY 1 SO U WONT GET THEM MIXED UP. WE THEN TRYED IT, AND THE CONTROL LOCKED LITE STAYED LIT. HE HELD THE SIGNAL CYCLE BUTTON IN FOR 3 SECONDS AND THE LIGHT WENT OUT. WE THEN TRYED RUNNING A CYCLE AND SO FAR SO GOOD!! GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: whirlpool duet washer: cycle light blinks, won't run

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer water temperature is wrong


i would guess that if you actually have hot water at the faucet it is connected to, the the inlet hot water valve is defective in the washer. seems like a lowes exchange to me.

6 year old front load Samsung washer seems suddenly out of balance. Leveled perfect. No load problem. Any ideas?


The tub is suspended by springs and the non rotational forces are dampened by a shock absorber. There is also something called a balancer S0058 in the diagram. After 6 years springs sag and shock absorbers can wear out, I'd start with replacing those. Get the exact model number before ordering parts; a Google search will find lots of parts sources. You may even want to call the supplier to confirm compatibility of parts.

Washer won't drain


ND means No Drain(ing). First check that the drain hose isn't kinked. Then, check to make sure the drain hose isn't pushed so far down into the standpipe that it is sealed closed. If it is too tight in the standpipe, it will create a siphoning effect. It has to sit freely but securely in the pipe.

I have the same problem. I contacted Whirlpool,they said to call an electrician. Electrician said it was a MOTOR CONTROL BOARD. My price to fix in Fl. was $430.00, $400 for part and 30 labor. I had a coupon other wise it would have been right at $500. Hope this helps!
