I replaced the door lock Mechanism assy, and that got it working properly.Interesting that the timer doesnt advance correctly either when this door lock isnt right.As soon as I replaced it, I filled it and went to rinse spin and it spun up alot faster.Also the timer advanced properly as well.
This is not an easy one.You have to go down to the hall sensor.Check continuity on all four wires from there to midway connector to Main board.What happens is the unit will run but when a vibration occurs it stops abruptly and you get DC error.I had one of these and we are samsung authorized,and had to pull it into the shop.I eneded up telling them.So again the hall sensor from there to the connector midway up the back.Then from there to control board.I found the Green wire open coming from hall sensor to connector in back.

Dear Fellow Samurais,
Thank you for all your input.I replaced the door lock mechanism assy, and she spins like a champ.It was locking but would open up almost as soon as you unplugged it.Thanks for that tip SOHEI.The erro code was an E41 which means the control board doesnt see the door as locked.Thank you for the tech sheet info SENPAI..

DEAR FELLOW SAMURAIS,
The new inverter I received turned out to be the problem.I went to customers house with a new invereter and replaced it.The original new one on close inspection had a hairline crack across most of the traces.The problem I had was that I assumed the new part was ok,when it never was.This created a whole slew of additional part orders and trips.So I will be examining ever part especially electronic circuit very closely.Thanks for all your input
I have a Hotpoint ref freezer and the heater is bad,one wire connected to it is burnt to a crisp and the element is open.Iam going to change the thermistor sensor and the thermostat as well on this repair.I guess Iam afraid that there is something Iam missing and donbt want a recall.Any tips on how to test to make sure it is working before I leave customers home.Or what some of you pros do to avoid recallS on defrost type problems.
Just an FYI on this unit.Went back to customers home and determined that the basket is actually out of round.Put it in hi speed test and the machine went kinda bizirk.Its actually not an bearing or spider its the shape of the basket.Unbeleivable.How cheaply are these things made for something like this to happen at 2.5 years old.Afgter I did the test I spun the drum around by hand and you can see that its sort of oblong,out of round and you can hear it scrape the tub.This is whats been chewing up the boot..
I have an Samsung washer front load.Model# WF328AAW/XAA.The customer is complaining that they are getting
a burning smell.I noticed the boot seal is being chewed up and some of it ended up in the washers drain access.It also starts to rattle and vibrate alot at the end of cycle,hi sppeed spin.Wanted to know if you have run into this problem before.
