Samsung WA52J8060A, WA52J8700A Top Load Washer with active wash troubleshooting

Because the micom for a washer is a complicated structure, a service call may be required. Below is information for exact trouble diagnosis and proper repair guidelines.

Cautions for repair and replacement

1. Because some electronic components are damaged by the charged static electricity from the resin from a machine or the human body, prepare the human body by grounding it to the earth, or remove the potential difference of the human body and machine by contacting the power supply plug when contacting the PCB.

2. Because AC 120 V is applied to the triac T1 and T2 on the PCB, electrical shock may occur by contacting. Take caution that the strong and weak electricity are not mixed.

3. Do not replace the PCB assembly unless it’s found defective by a strict diagnosis. Follow the trouble diagnosis procedure if the micom is not operating normally.

ProblemsSolution
Does not startPlug the washer into the wall outlet. Check for proper voltage.
Check the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
Close the door and press the Start/Pause button to start the washer.
Check if the washer is in a pause, soak, or suds process. Wait briefly and it may start. (If the washer is in a suds process, ‘Suds’ will light up instead of the remaining time.)
Check for a restricted drain system. (If there is an electrical problem with the drain system, “NO DRAINING” error will occur after 15 minutes.)
Check the water supply and the line, or water valve screen filter
Check if the PCB connectors (especially CN6) are connected to the LCD/LED module properly. Replace the PCB if an error is detected.
LeaksMake sure the inlet hose and drain hose connections are not leaking. Check for rubber gasket damage due to over tightening.
Check the standpipes for leaks. Wrap a dry rag around the standpipe opening.
If the rag becomes wet, the leak is due to home plumbing.
Make sure the standpipe is capable of accepting the water flow from the washer
Check internal hose connections (fill, drain systems, dispenser hoses, and clamps).
Check the rubber boot. Remove, reposition, and reinstall if necessary
Check for kinks in the dispenser hose to the outer tub. Hot water pressurization may force the door open.
Does not tumbleStart an empty, normal cycle and allow it to fill to check if the washer tumbles
Perform a Quick Spin Test. Before testing, make sure the tumbler is empty.
Check for loose connections at the machine control board, pressure switch, motor, tach harness, and motor control. (Refer to the component testing procedures.)
Check motor windings resistance. CN8 Pins 1 & 3 / Pins 1 & 2 / Pins 2 & 3 = 11.6 ohms ±7 %.
Does not spinMake sure the door is completely closed
Check for remaining water in the washer. If there is remaining water, see “Does not drain”.
Perform Quick Spin Test. (Make sure the washer is empty.) If it does not tumble after performing the test, replace the PCB. If the problem persists, replace the motor
If the washer spins, check for a possible unbalanced load scenario in normal mode.
Check for loose connections at the PCB, water level sensor, motor, and hall sensor wire harness. (CN7, CN5, CN6) Refer to the component testing procedures.
Check motor windings resistance. CN8 Pin 1 & 2/ 1 & 3/ 2 & 3 = 11.6 ohms (at ±7 % 20 °C / 68 °F).
Water does not fillPerform Quick Test Mode. Visually check all the water valves. (Cold/Hot Water Valve)
Make sure taps are fully open. Check water lever sensor. (Refer to the PCB Connector Check.)
Check if there are any kinks in the inlet hoses and if inlet screens are clogged.
Check if there is enough water pressure and any frozen area in the unit(drain hose, etc.).
Measure the resistance of the water valve coil. CN6 Pin/CN1 Pin1,2,7,8,9=1.18 K ohms
Check pressure S/W and PCB for loose connections. (Refer to the PCB Connector Check.)
Wet clothesUnbalanced load. Add more clothing to the load.
Due to excessive suds by using general detergent. Use HE (High-Efficiency) detergent or reduce the amount of detergent used.
Low Spin speed or Drain Only was selected. See, “Does not spin”.
Drum full of sudsSee, “Does not drain” and “Does not spin” and check the draining.
Check the PCB and drain pump for any loose wire connections.
Perform Quick Test Mode or a Board Output Test to drain.
Use HE (High-Efficiency) or low suds detergent specially formulated for front load washers.
Reduce the amount of detergent for that specific load size and soil level. Towels generally create more suds. Do a wash cycle with cold water and a tablespoon of salt without detergent.
Door does not lockDoor is not aligned or closed properly
Perform Quick Test Mode. Check the output voltage of the door lock coil. If it reads 120 V, replace the door lock switch; if not, replace the PCB. (Refer to the PCB Connector Check.)
Door does not unlockCheck if the door is deformed. This may prevent the door from unlocking.
Door locks itself when the water level is too high. Opening the door will result in water draining.
Check the following with Board Input Test Mode:
Water level (frequency): Over 23.80 KHz. ➞ If so, refer to Does not drain.
Temperature (inside drum): Higher than 60 °C / 140 °F. ➞ If so, wait until it drops.
When everything is normal, check the PCB connectors and door lock switch.
The display shows “The door will not unlock”. Turn off the washer and then turn it on. If “The door will not unlock” still appears, check the PCB and door lock switch.
Perform Quick Test Mode. Check door lock. Check the output voltage of the door lock coil. If it reads 120 V, replace the door lock switch; if not, replace the PCB.
Buttons do not workThe Option and Function buttons respond differently according to each cycle
Child Lock is activated. To disable, simultaneously hold down the Temp. and Spin buttons until the washer beeps.
When “End” appears on the display, only the Power button works. Press the Power button and make new cycle selections.
Does not drainCheck for kinks or restrictions(frozen, etc) on the drain hose.
Close the door and press the Start/Pause button.
For safety reasons, the washer does not tumble or spin with the door open.
Check if the water level signal input is correct. Go to Board Input Test Mode.
Go to Quick Test Mode and perform a Drain Pump Test.
Check if it reads AC 120 V (resistance=14.2 ± 7 % ohms) at the pump when a spin cycle is selected.
Check the pump at CN1 (PIN3) on the PCB. It should read AC 110 ~ 120 V.
Incorrect water temperatureCheck if both of the water taps are fully open and the temperature selection is correct.
Make sure the domestic water heater is set to supply hot water lower than 120 °F (49 °C). Check the water heater capacity and recovery rate.
If the water heater is located far from the washer, screw out the hot water tap and let the water flow until you get hot water.
Too hot/too cold: A reduced amount of water is supplied while the PCB controls the influx to regulate the actual temperature of the water in the tub. This may seem to be significantly hotter/colder than expected.
Disconnect the inlet hoses from the water valve and remove any residue from the inlet screens.
Noisy and/or vibratesCheck if the washer is level and the lock nuts are tightened on the bottom plate.
Make sure the load is of adequate size and is not unbalanced.
Check if the motor is fastened enough.
Remove things that could contribute to noises/vibrations. (such as shipping bolt , spacers and objects leaning on the washer)

As the micom wash machine is configured of the complicated structure, there might be the service call. Below information is prepared for exact trouble diagnosis and suitable repair guide.

Caution for the Repair and Replacement

As some electronic components are damaged by the charged static electricity from the resin part of wash machine or the human body, prepare the human body earth or remove the potential difference of the human body and wash machine by contacting the power supply plug when the work contacting to PCB is executed.
Since AC220~240V is applied to the triac T1 and T2 on P.C.B, the electric shock may occur by touching and be careful that the strong and weak electricity are mixed.
If the P.C.B assembly is out of order, do not replace the component on P.C.B except TACT switch since the component is coated with the urethane.
As the P.C.B assembly is designed for no trouble, do not replace the P.C.B assembly by the wrong diagnosis and follow the procedure of the trouble diagnosis when the micom is not operated normally.
As the parts on P.C.B are coated by the urethane, they can not be tested by the test bar of the meter. Check the trouble by the test mode method according to the procedure.

ItemCause and treatment
The power is not supplied- Is the PCB connector connected well?
- Is the voltage normal?
- Is the power supply plug connected well?
- Is the noise filter connected well?
