You have habitually loaded the laundry in Samsung, selected the program, pressed the power button, and after a while noticed that the washing machine does not take on water. The laundry is not washed. Perhaps the display shows error 4E or flashing indicator lights.
When you can cope with the problem yourself
Not always the lack of water intake in Samsung is associated with a breakdown of the equipment. Often the following causes lead to this.
The water supply tap in the washing machine is blocked. Perhaps one of the householders closed the stop valve or it is not open all the way. Check the position of the tap, and if it is partially or completely blocked, turn it so as to open the water all the way.
There is no water in the water supply. Check for water by opening the faucet in the bathtub or sink. If there is no water supply, contact your property manager.
The water inlet hose is pinched. Inspect the entire length of the fill hose. It may be kinked or pinched by something. If you find this problem, straighten or loosen the hose to allow the water to flow normally into the washer-dryer.
The filter strainer on the inlet valve is clogged. This filter is designed to protect your Samsung from impurities and debris from tap water. If the strainer is clogged, the water enters the washing machine at low pressure or not at all. It is necessary to clean the filter. You can do it yourself with the help of our instructions or by calling a master.
The door is not closed. Check whether the door is closed until it clicks; otherwise the machine thinks that the door is not blocked and will not pour water to avoid flooding the apartment. Try opening the door and closing it again.
One-off control board malfunction. The control boards of washing machines of all brands, including Samsung, sometimes “hang”. To overload, it, disconnect the washing machine from the mains for 10-15 minutes. If the reason for the lack of a set of water was covered in a single failure after the inclusion of the machine “hangs” and begins to dial water normally.
Probable malfunctions requiring washing machine repair San Diego
If your case is not similar to any of those described above, most likely your Samsung is faulty. In the experience of Appliance Repair Company San Diego handymen, the following breakdowns are most common for washing machines of this brand.
The valve of the water supply is defective.
The valve is a body with a membrane, the position of which regulates the electromagnetic coil. When voltage is applied to the coil, the membrane opens, and the Samsung machine pours water. It is the coil in the fill valve, more often than not, and burns out. As a result, the diaphragm does not open, and the Samsung cannot draw water.
Failure of the valve is the most common reason for the Samsung washing machine not getting water.
The hatch locking device is defective
Probably worn out and the thermal tab does not work or the bimetallic plate has lost its flexibility. Therefore, the lock does not work and the door will not lock.
The control module is out of order
The control board “controls” the operation of the washing machine. Often it breaks because of power surges or moisture: individual radio elements fail or the tracks oxidize and rot. Most often, this breakdown occurs in the circuit of the device blocking the hatch or fill valve.
Faulty water level sensor
Normally, the node determines the amount of water in the tank. If it is stuck in the “full tank” position, the washer considers that there is enough water and does not start pouring water.
A faulty water level sensor can be due to contamination of the pressure sampling chamber, clogging in the hose level sensor, or breakage of the sensor itself.
Open circuit between the control board and water valve
Due to faulty wiring or contacts, the control board “does not see” the valve: it does not respond to commands. Most often, the circuit breakage is due to vibrations when the machine is running. In private homes, the cause may be rodent damage to the wires.
