It sounds like the motor control module has failed. Check for power to the input of the control. The line cord feeds right into the controller.

If you determine that there is indeed power to the controller, you need to figure out what caused it to fail, making sure there isn't a secondary condition which caused this control to fail.

A leaky, wet or shorted water pump can cause the control to fail. Inspect the water pump for signs of leakage and corrosion.

Check also to make sure the controller isn't sitting in a pool of water. The thermistor seal on the water mixing chamber can leak and allow water to seep into the pan where the control is located.

A shorted water inlet valve or shorted diverter valve can also cause control failure.

If you do not check these things, and replace the control, it will fail in short order if any of the above mentioned conditions are present.

I have a Samsung WA13G7Q1 top loader giving me a DE on LCD when spin cycle starts then just stops.


DE is an error relating to the lid switch/lock not working, if it cant sense the lids shut it wont spin, it could be as simple as the magnet in the lid has moved or the more likely cause is the lid switch has died, it will require further inspection or you could just order the lid switch and see how it goes

My washing machine door is not opening at the end of a cycle. I put it onto another and it still won't at the end of that one. I've turned it off as well for 10 mins or so, and still nothing. Please help!


you didn't state whether it's a top or front loader. either way, there's a switch activated when the door is closed and washer is in cycle mode- so you can't open the door when a. the front loader has water in it, or b. the top loader is in agitate, or spin cycle. if top loader- there's a tab on the end opposite the hinge side that activates a switch that latches the cover closed when in 'dangerous' cycles (don't want to get your hand caught in the spin cycle!!). either a loose wire or a failed switch! prob. need to gently pop the top (should hinge back) to access the switch. UNPLUG THE WASHER!! if a a loose wire, re-attach-if not, replace switch! easy! good luck!
