Some common problems that Samsung washing machines have are developing rust around the soap dispenser, the pump attached to the drum breaking and making loud noises and vibrating during the spin cycle. Each of these issues have been frequently identified by owners of Samsung washing machines, accordin to Consumer Affairs.
Based on low customer reviews, Samsung washing machines are prone to having problems. A common complaint of many Samsung washing machine owners is that a ring of rust develops around the detergent dispenser after a short period of time. This interferes with the cleanliness of the washer and can cause leaks in the dispenser. Similarly, rust can be harmful to clothing if the two come in direct contact.
Another common problem that Samsung washing machines have is the main pump attached to the drum breaking or malfunctioning. This issue causes the washing drum to fail to drain adequately, flooding the area around the washer. This can be harmful to the machine itself and the floor of the home. The drum of a Samsung washing machine is very expensive to replace as well, costing around $500 to $600.
A third common problem that Samsung washing machines have is vibrating or making loud noises during the spin cycle. This issue is very disruptive and bothersome and can be caused by a number of malfunctions in the machine. The washing machine's motor is the most common reason for this issue.
