SOURCE: my front loader door wont lock
Believe it or not, you may be able to fix that yourself with some spray lubricant applied to the shaft of the electric lock mechanism, but you will have to remove the lock to lube where it's stuck. Then you will need to work the locking jaw back and forth till it breaks free then reinstall.

SOURCE: is samsung pedestal model number
The correct pedestal for the WF220ANW washer is WE357A7W . The WE356A5W is a slightly different size to secure it to the washer (14 2/5 X 27 X 28 7/10 In). The WE357A7W is 27"(W) x 14"(H) x 28.5"(D). The holes for the screws will also not quite line up.
I hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
That's a good indication as the drain motor is independant of the main motor and belt.
Quick way to see/confirm- REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND HAVE THE BACK REMOVED.
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out not to be the belt but the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had. New motors are not cheap, though. Ours for a Bosch cost GBP250- but it's your choice!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
