People generally like to afford Samsung washing machines because of its exclusive features. But, every washing machine has its own common issues that annoy the owner. However, electronic problems are just inevitable. And, always, it might not be possible for you to take that heavy machine and go to the service centre. So, you have to troubleshoot the issue all by yourself. First, you have to observe and analyse the problem. After that, start the troubleshooting procedure.
What causes leakage?
There are basically 6 probable causes for the front load leak that can create a non-stop supply of water from the machine. They are like-
- 4E (4C) error,
- 2.5E(5C) error,
- obstructions in the door,
- damages in the hose,
- damaged pipes,
- And, improper positioning of the drain hose.
Experts say that some of these are not physical damages. So, if you accidentally damage the pipes and other items, then change them at once.
4 Solutions to Common Samsung Washer Problems
Analysing all the issues with your Samsung washing machine will give you a brief idea about its troubleshooting process. Make sure that you perform all the procedures with prior attention.
Eliminate the 4E(4C) error
This error states that the machine is facing some problems with the water supply. It might happen that the water supply is increasing so much that the front load is unable to bear the load.
To resolve the issue, first, you need to check whether the water tap is in perfect working condition or not. If it is, then adjusts the tap. Now, check the hose connected to the machine and make sure that it should not bend. After that, check out the mesh filter. If it is dirty, clean it immediately.
Fix the 5E(5C) error
This error is one of the most common errors that take place in every washing machine. The 5E error occurs when the machine is facing any troublesome situations, in draining the water. If the water becomes hot, turn off the machine and wait for the water to cool down. Then, try to drain it. If the water is cold, then once again turn off the machine and check the water level.
After that, investigate the drain hose and make sure that it is correctly installed. In case the drain hose is not penetrated more than 5 to 6 inches, then apply a light pressure to insert it deeper into the machine. If it is bent or damaged, call the experts and replace it with a new one.
Remove the obstructions in the door
The door is the ultimate gateway for inserting the clothes for washing. If any physical items get stuck, then you will not be able to close the door properly. In doing so, when the machine will fill the water, the leakage will take place. That is why after putting in all the clothes, check whether any obstacle is present in the door’s way. If it is, remove it at once. After checking the entire door’s path, close it and begin the washing process.
Fix the damages in the pipes
There are various types of pipes attached to the Samsung washing machine. The two main pipes are- drainage and water flow. The drainage pipe drains all the wastewater from the machine. The water flow pipe delivers fresh water from the tap into the machine.
If you use them carefully, then they will last long. The wear and tear of pipes happen mainly due to the transfer of hot water. Make sure you carefully look at the temperature range given in the user manual and then try it.
Maintain a few more things…
There are also a few more things that you must maintain to avoid water leakages from the front load such as- never fill the entire machine with water, as the door becomes heavy. Always try to apply clothes in a small quantity, so that it can wash them well. If any of the pipes need to be replaced, then always opt for original Samsung washing machine pipes. Using duplicate pipes is a totally unethical task and has the possibility of facing wear and tear once again.
