Why does my Samsung washing machine take so long?
A washer that continuously takes too long to wash may have a malfunctioning load sense system, or greater problems with its control panel. There may also be issues with your water inlet valve, which pulls water into the appliance for each cycle.
Where do you put the washing powder on a Samsung washer?
Detergent drawer (Type 1)
- 1 Main wash compartment: Detergent for the main wash, water softener, pre-soaking agent, bleach and stain remover.
- 2 Softener compartment: Fabric softener (do not fill higher than the line indicated by MAX).

Do I need to calibrate my Samsung washing machine?
It is recommended to run the calibration mode before starting a wash after your washing machine has been installed or moved. Samsung washing machines can automatically detect the weight of laundry and control the water level. Moreover, a balanced washing machine avoids excessive noise and vibration during operation.
Why is my Samsung Washer shaking?
This can happen when the four washing machine legs are not all making secure contact with the ground, or if a large bulky item or huge amount of laundry is in the washing machine. If you just got your front load washer, but didn’t remove the shipping bolts, then it will shake a lot.
Why is my washer shaking violently?
All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, unbalanced loads will cause the washer to shake or move and the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle.
Why does my washer keep going off balance?
Laundry caught below the tub or between the agitator and the inner tub can cause the washer to operate off balance with every load. The problem can be anything: a penny that worked its way out of a pocket, a button that fell off a shirt or a wayward sock or other article of clothing.
