Question about Samsung Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It does sound as if the motor requires replacement 'cos it's pulling more current than it would do if it was OK hence it's hot!
Now, a word or two of advice-
It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. However you could take a chance.
The other option is a new motor but they tend not to be cheap! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
So- the decision is with you- sorry.
