I have a Samsung WF203ANS that I tested and got a ND code. Found a good amount of debrise in the black hose that connects the drum assembly to the pump. I Cleaned the system out including the pump and output hose. Ran another cycle and system completed in full. Noticed after end of cycle that there is a lot of water in the drum. Removed the hoses from the pump input and output lines. Some water came out of the hoses but less then 1L. Removed the black hose connecting drum ouput to pump input. No water is leaking from the drums exit port but the drum has lots of water inside.

 

I also manually tested the pump and if its working.

 

Any suggestions out there Appliance world?

 

 

Thanks,

one more update, i've been trying to determine where the water in the drum is exactly as i've inspected the interior of the drum and noticed that I can see through the pin holes in the drum to see the drain hole in the bottome and lots of light coming in yet when i turn the drum i can hear lot of water swishing around inside.

 

Very confused where this water is located and is it water in a location it just shouldnt be maybe? hense it isn't making its way out to the drain to be pumped out.

 

oh my help

There's usually a little water left in the sump at the base of the outer tub but should not be visible in the inner basket.  You've cleared the restrictions from the hoses and pump.  I'm assuming oversudsing due to improper or too much detergent is not an issue.  The pump runs but could still be the problem.  Some pumps run fine until a load is applied.

Senpai, very true about the pump under load, one more piece of info is that I have two identical units that i'm repairing and both have the same issue now, simply runs fine but i can hear water left over inside. Ill try a run with clothes in it and see if the clothes are dry after a cycle or are they wet.

 

on another note:

 

also one unit unfortunately shakes a lot more during the spin to the point it moves about 3-4 inches where are the other unit that runs smoothers moves only about 0.5 " at any given time. Worn struts seem possible? I can't find any mechanical issues with the drum or its mounting.

 

oh the fun of fixing things.

Yeah, those struts are suspects!  They are relatively cheap and easy to replace.  I'd go for it if I was you.

The water you are hearing sloshing around is the liquid in the balance ring on the front of the drum.

Sensei,  Thanks for the post, Washers are an area i'm working on learning at the moment, ranges, dishwashers, and fridge units are more my skills todate.

 

I ran a load of clothes last night and they are appropriatly spun dry for a washer thats for sure. Yes i do still hear the water in the balance ring. Is this an issue? can I remove it or it is what it is?

 

all the best guys and This is a great forum, i look forward to helping others as well. thanks,

you don't need to remove it, as it is supposed to be there.  It helps the washer balance itself during the spin cycle.  Kind of works as a counter weight.
