Recently I came a across a problem with my new Samsung WF80F5E0W2W Bubble Washing Machine. It had been working fine for around 2 months with varying loads of type and weight been thrown into it and it been fine.
Anyway, the other day is was loaded with a complete bedding set for a single bed and 1 pillow.
We had been used to an older style washing machine where it would just work whatever the conditions.
Anyway it washed fine but it hadn’t spun so everything was still wet, we put it on a spin but it just rev’d and whirred but never spun at the 1200 it was meant too. It would complete the spin cycle but never spin. We tried this a few times and it never spun. I tried taking everything out and trying the different spin speed and it was still the same.
We left the washer turned off and empty for 1 day and when we used it next it span fine.
Eventually, we got a Samsung repair guy out and he said that the new digital washers are really sensitive to the loads that they have in them, so if it feels like its off-balance (with a heavy object on one side) it won’t spin. The washer may go back and forth in an attempt to dislodge the items that are stuck and to re balance its self.
He said the best thing to do is keep putting it on a spin cycle if this doesnt work after 3 attempts to remove 1/2 of the load loosen the remaining washing and put on a spin cycle.
