SAMSUNG FRONT LOAD WASHER WILL NOT SPIN

3 posts in this topic

I AM SERVICING A SAMSUNG MODEL # WF306LAW/XAA, IT WILL RUN NORMAL ON ALL CYCLES BUT WILL NOT SPIN THE CLOTHES OUT. THE PUMP IS CLEAR AND IT DOES PUMP ALL THE WATER OUT, ON SPIN ONLY IT WILL ROTATE APPROX 5 TURNS THEN CHIMES, THEN ROTATE IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION 5 TURNS AND CHIME AND CONTINUE.

I RAN A QUICK DIAGNOSIS FOR THE SPIN AND IT ONLY WILL REACH 200 RPM BEFORE IT SHUTS DOWN. ANY SUGGESTIONS, MAIN BOARD BLOWN? I DID REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH ASSEMBLY.

Some other things to check: (from the service manual):
 

• Make sure to close the door completely.
• Perform Quick Test Mode or Quick Spin Test.
Does the washer spin? (Before the test, empty the unit inside.) If it doesn’t tumble after the above, change PCB. When the problem persists, change the motor.
• Perform Quick Test Mode or Quick Spin Test. Does the washer spin? If it does, Check Possible unbalanced load scenario in normal mode.
• Check for loose connections at PCB, Water Level Sensor, Motor, Hall Sensor Wire Harness. (CN8,CN9,CN3)
• Check motor windings resistance. (CN9 Pin1&3 = 11.6 ohms (at ±7% 20°C/68°F),
Pin1&2 = 11.6ohms (at ±7% 20°C), Pin2&3 = 11.6 ohms (at ±7% 20°C))
