I have a WF328 that currently has a bad control board. The drain pump is not energizing. was intermittent but now dead when in diagnostic.

 

But prior to this issue it was starting to have difficulty getting up to speed for the spin cycle. Usally spending many minutes trying to get the load just right.

 

I was wondering if the springs or dampeners can wear over time. is there a way to evaluate them?

 

I did a spin test and the unit went up to 12-1300 rpm with a wet load in the drum.

 

Thanks

It could have had a drain pump starting to fail. This would cause the machine not to drain fast enough therefor making the spin cycle seem longer. I've never personally seem a challenge with Samsung washer springs or dampeners getting week over time. If you're not separating the loads properly, not just by colors, but by fabric type as well. It will call unbalance problems as well.

Thanks. Makes sense . . . I appreciate the comments about the springs and dampeners. I googled quite a bit anid saw no evidence of it but wanted to be sure.
