Thread: Samsung front load washer won't spin

    Samsung front load washer won't spin

    Model Number: WF218ANW/XAA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    My Samsung WF218AN/XAA will not spin. It sounds like the motor is trying because there is the normal hum of the motor trying to start. The tub had drained properly, but the spin cycle did not start. Perhaps the noise is the pump trying to empty any last water, but the tub was empty. After emptying the clothes, the tub can be turned easily by hand so it is not locked or jammed. I have tried unplugging the unit for 10 minutes and resetting, but this did not help.

    Any suggestions on where to start? Are there sensors for knowing the unit is drained that could be failing? A sensor on the motor position?

    Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    Does the washer give you any error codes?
