TIP 1: Most error codes that display are related to installation, maintenance, and general use such as washer not being level, not cleaning the debris filter, not cleaning the inlet water supply mesh filters, and using too much detergent.
TIP 2: If your Samsung washer will not start, be sure the Delay Start function has not been activated. When the Delay Start is in use the display will show a number followed by an H (1H, 2H, 3H). The Delay Start icon will be illuminated. (The Delay Start Icon looks like a stopwatch)

SAMSUNG WASHER FAULT CODE: nd
SAMSUNG WASHER ERROR DEFINITION = no drain
If "nd" is showing on the display, it is an indication of a no drain condition.
HOW TO REPAIR/CLEAR ERROR?: This is caused by the debris filter being clogged or the drain hose installed improperly. Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far into the drain/stand pipe. A unit that is not level, unbalanced, or overloaded may not drain properly also. Drain pump could be faulty. (nd error code repair here)

SAMSUNG WASHER FAULT CODE: nF
SAMSUNG WASHER ERROR DEFINITION = washer not getting enough water
If the machine is not getting enough water, a "no fill" (nF) error code will be displayed after 16 minutes of trying to fill. This does not mean there is a defect in the unit.
HOW TO REPAIR/CLEAR ERROR?: Be sure the water valves are fully OPEN. Verify the door is tightly closed. Verify the washer is plugged in. Check the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Verify the debris filter is not clogged. How to clean the debris filter. Top Load washers do not have external debris filter access. Water inlet valve may be faulty. (nF error code repair here)

SAMSUNG WASHER FAULT CODES: DC or UC or UE
SAMSUNG WASHER ERROR DEFINITION = unbalanced load or board voltage error
This error represents an unbalanced load error or a main PCB (main board) voltage error.
HOW TO REPAIR/CLEAR ERROR?: Turn off the washer and open the door. Verify the washer is not overloaded and redistribute the load. Verify the washer is level. If the washer has Calibration Mode, re-calibrate the washer using your users manual or find one online. (dc error code repair here)

SAMSUNG WASHER FAULT CODE: SUDS
SAMSUNG WASHER ERROR DEFINITION = over-sudsing condition
If your washing machine has the word "SUDS" on the display, it has detected an oversudsing problem, and will stop for a short period to allow the suds to dissolve. This error code is usually caused by excess detergent or the wrong type.
HOW TO REPAIR/CLEAR ERROR?: Use HE (High Efficiency) detergent. This detergent is made for high efficiency front loader washing machines. HE detergent has high efficiency cleaning with low sudsing. Non "HE" detergent normally have high sudsing properties, and will cause excessive amounts of suds in your washer. If you are already using "HE" detergent and your washing machine is displaying the "SUDS" error code, you are using too much detergent.

LID LOCK LIGHT STAYS ON NO START:

Usually either the lid lock mechanism, the lid lock actuator or the board is the culprit even a disconnected capacitor.

MACHINES SAIDS SENSING
When the START button is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer
will slowly spin the dry load to estimate the load size, and begin adding water. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been
added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load.

NOTE: The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.

Try unplugging the cord a couple of times. See what happens then try going into diagnostic error codes, see what codes are shown. To pin point where the problem is. if you have no display to read the fault codes. Your main control board may be the issue.

Next, while in Manual diagnostics, try to get the unit to spin; if the motor hums for a split second and then shuts down with the lid lock blinking; go back into diagnostic codes and look for shifter or speed sensor errors.
This is proof that the shifter/sensor actuator assembly is the issue because the optical sensor is not reading the motor speed.

I suggest unplug the washer and check the wire connections on the switch. If a meter is available then you can check the resistance (ohms) of the lock motor.

Note: After performing the manual test and the lid lock works perfectly, or at least as it is supposed to. You can eliminate that as the problem.If the lock worked in the manual test but doesn't in an actual cycle then I suspect the control board is at fault.

A safety feature found on front load washing machine is the door switch and the door lock and strike. On most models, the door switch must be closed and the door lock must be activated before the washer will start. The switch is normally located in the door frame of the washing machine, but may also be part of the door lock assembly. Inspect the strike to make sure that it engages the door lock assembly and that the door remains closed. To check the door switch for continuity with a multi-meter, you will need to disconnect the power and remove the front panel.

The lid switch on a top load washing machine is a safety device designed to prevent the motor circuit from operating when the lOn some models, the water inlet valve circuit is controlled as well. If the lid switch fails, the washer may not start. The lid switch is normally located beneath the main top with a projection on the lid or a pin attached to the lid that will actuate the switch when the lid is closed. Verify that the switch is being activated mechanically and that any levers or actuators are not damaged or sticking. If the switch is being activated but there is no power being supplied to the motor or water valve circuits, then the switch may be defective

The start switch on some top load washers is often part of the timer and is activated by pulling out on the timer knob. Although not normally available as a separate part, the switch can be tested for continuity with a multi-meter. You will need to remove power from the appliance and then locate the correct timer contacts as noted on the wiring diagram. On some electronic controlled models, the start switch is a momentary contact type switch located on the control console. You can test this switch for continuity with a multi-meter when the push button is held in
God is good and that's why I give free advice.

I can't get my filter out

Washing Machines | Answered on Nov 16, 2019


It happened to mine also. Nothing came out of a pocket, either. A scarf worked it's way in somehow and got caught up in the gear that moves the agitator. Lift off the center cap, loosen and remove the 11mm bolt, then lift the agitator straight up... If you don't lift straight up from the middle it will seem like something else is holding it.

If you can get to the rear of it, you may be able to clean the contacts with switch cleaner spray.

Or you may need a new control board if the switch is part of it.

Washing Machines | Answered on Nov 15, 2019


Try disconnecting the power for 2 minutes and then reconnect. The logic board should sense it is full of water and pump it out.

If not, remove the drain hose and lower it into a pail or floor drain.

Some filters are behind the front kick plate, some are accessed from the rear. If you remove it, all the water in the machine will come out and make a big mess.
