Hello, Welcome To FixYa. Have you inspected the coin trap in the drain pump ? This applies to all SAMSUNG since 2008. Though the location varies from left to right hand side below the main door. The washers have a coin trap and manual drain. In the event you forgot to retrieve any small items such as coins prior to washing, the rubber hose inside the coin trap allows you to drain out the water allowing you to remove the trap for cleaning, but also to keep the inside as water-free as possible when not in use. ( which helps reduce odor build-up ). Let me know if this is something you've already attempted and we can go from there. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Regards, Macmarkus :)

    Hello again,

    Thank you for the reply. Since you done did that, obviously it didn't work...but you didn't say ?( correct me if I'm wrong or misundetstood ). Does the unit go into a spin when empty, i.e. Drain and then spin without clothing in it ? How about the action during wash/agitation, does the drum turn in both directions ?

    Again let me know and we can move can be tedious from afar, so please be patient if you already know the answers to these questions.

    Before you run a load, I would suggest running that load without the addition of detergent to see what happens. This will rule out the detergent being a factor if it doesn't spin.

Samsung vrt front load washer WF218ANB/XA Burned up the drain pump. Installed a new one, now washer will work until the spin cycle. In spin cycle the door lock clicks and it will not drain or spin

Make sure the drain filter is not clogged. Most Samsung have an access door in the lower right hand corner to access and clean out this filter. If this is clogged or the drain hose is clogged, you will have these spin and drain problems.

Won't fully spin and alarms nd as a code

You may want to check your drain to be sure there's not a clog/partial clog when draining out the water. Also, you may want to check the filter and possibly clean it. A partially clogged filter may cause this problem. And, you might try...turning off the unit for 10 seconds and turn back Spin Start/Pause to drain the water. Good luck and hope this helps.

I Have a Samsung Washing machine model number WF218anb. I can't get it to go through the complete spin cycle. I have taken all the clothes out and put it on spin only and it stays on 9 minutes for a very...

Wow, I have the exact same problem. I reported it under my extended warranty, and the repair shop replaced the drum/bearings without fixing the problem.

I was looking at Consumer Reports today, and some of the people there reported the same thing. Interestingly, some also reported that Samsung told them they couldn't use this washer in places where the temperature got below 60 degrees because it's temperature sensitive, somehow.

But the overwhelming reports on this model are good. I got the whole sequence to run by putting it on perm press -- it spun OK!

Samsung washer wf218anb/xaa has code dc and wont spin clothes they are still wet

The DC error code is an unbalanced laundry error. Try putting less clothes in and if that doesn't fix the problem, then replace the hall sensor( located behind the drum, underneath the rotor).

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 Mod 110.26712693 Wont Spin

Pop off the trim pieces on the front edges of each end of the console. You will see the screws that hold the console down under them.
You can go to, click on parts, enter your model number and see a parts diagram of the washer.
Post back if you need further help.
