  1. not had machine long but here I my first impressions and observations of this model of Washing Machine the Samsung 2020 Series 5+ 9KG Auto Dose Washing Machine Model Number 90T534WAN (in White) or 90T534DAN (in Dark Grey) FEATURES: *Auto Load sensing (weigh's clothes in wash drum before each wash) *Auto-dose technology (measures out doses automatically of liquid detergent and fabric softener) *AI technology - remembers your most frequent wash cycles that you use *Quiet Invertor brushless motor (10 year warranty on motor) * 5 Year parts and labour Warranty (after Registration) *Wi-Fi enabled (works also with Alexa) LOADING: *The port hole size is smaller than than our old 8KG washer . This 9KG diameter being 12" opening and the hotpoint opening being larger by only 1" at 13" wide ... but really makes a difference especially when loading larger items such as bed sheets DRUM CAPACITY: * our old washing machine , a Hotpoint 8Kg Drum - this Samsung has a capacity of 9KG but the physical size of the drum is actually smaller inside. DOOR: * The porthole door does not open all the way back like the door on our hotpoint washing machine. * why put a Black Door on a White Washing Machine? .. aesthetically it does not look right - also why make the door a lot larger than it needs to be seeing as the porthole width is not that large? * The machine uses very little water to wash - sometimes so visibly you would wonder how it even washes the clothes with such little water. but it still does seem to clean the garments well still. MELODY & BEEPS: * Silly that you cannot silence all the audio signals and jingles of the washing machine - you can turn off that musical jingle at the end (which is far too long in duration Samsung!) but even though you can silence that jingle you cannot silence the other bleeps of the washing machine. - This I think is such short sightedness on Samsung's part in manufacturing / designing the machine - you have a perfectly good menu window with all different options - they could have put in the menu "Sounds" "Low/Med/High/Off/All Off" easily and had a choice of "Musical Jingle or Bleep Signal at end of wash cycle" INFO DISPLAY WINDOW: * The option buttons underneath the display panel on this model do not seem to light up on this particular model but they do on other similar models from Samsung. * The large 7 Segment 'Digits' in the display panel show spin speed in large digits whereas it would have been more sensible to have the 'Time to End' Time in large digits on the display panel so that you could quickly glance across the room to see how long the wash will take to end , rather than putting the rinse and spin speed in large digits and the 'Time to End' info in smaller display font . Looks like this in the way Samsung have designed the window info display: I think this way would have been better personally: * It is annoying that the 'remote control' by wifi that you have to keep re-enabling every wash and that when you turn the machine on again you have to enable it again if you want top 'start' the wash on the machine by the app. SPIN CYCLE: * The drum spins ant-clockwise , on our Hotpoint it spins Clockwise (I know I am being picky now) - I don't know if in the terms of centrifugal force physics whether one spin has an advantage and squeezes more water out on one or the other but it looks strange spinning anti-clockwise. * The drain pump is noisy - I would have thought in the 2020's washing machine manufacturers would have come up with ways of making the pump sound near on silent , they still, like the older washing machines, have that 'graunchy' sound to them especially when they are still pumping when the water has long been emptied from the drum - here you have a lovely quiet induction motor and then over-shadowed by the pump sound when emptying or spinning AESTHEITICS / LOOKS: * The front panel would look much more sleeker and modern without the silver turn dial I think personally, they could have just put the soft touch capacitive buttons in that place for going backwards and forwards in the menu and selecting the wash cycle instead of this dial which has a chance to possibly break of one of these days if someone brushes past the machine or is heavy handed or the kids start playing with it . * after filling the drum with water on a wash cycle you can hear a sound of a pump (not the drain pump but some other pump) , I presume this is aerating the water and the wash detergent and air because the water starts to froth up with suds , this is even with the 'bubble soak' turned off in the menu , and on all the washes I have tried so far . * At the end of the Cycle the machine spins , and then turns immediately off (shuts down) thats it .. no tumbling or anything until the clothes are taken out of the drum? I would have liked to see maybe a 20-30 minute delay after the clothes have spun with the word 'END' before machine shuts down and in that 20-30 minutes just tumble every now and again (and play a few bleeps every now and again) until user comes along and takes out the washing from the drum (I do realise that when you press the wifi remote button on the front panel when you are away from home the machine will tumble the contents of the drum until you come home but I would like to see this feature whether the remote wifi is on or off personally) AUTO DOSING FEATURE IS COOL: * The auto-dosing is a great feature but I have it set to 'Med' on both the detergent and softener and the way it goes down in the drawer (Quickly) I cannot see it lasting that long before it needs re-filling again. MORE ON SPINNING: * this washing machine seems to go into a spin good - better than our old hotpoint washing machine which was very fussy- if that was un-balanced in any way there was no way that it was going to even attempt to do a spin at all so clothes sometimes would come out sopping wet (I wish manufacturers with their fancy LED info panels will inform the end user that the machine went into a non spin mode on the display , something like 'could not spin' or an error code at the end of a wash on the display so the end user was not at a guessing game stage wondering did the washing spin or not) - so yeah it looks like this Samsung will go into some kind of spin even if that means the inner drum wobbling like mad as it starts to spin (or even a low spin, well thats something at least) * There is pretty poorly design of a switch protruding above the door lock - I can see that being broke off in a hurry easily when cleaning all around the door seal and it getting caught up in a cloth - what is it there for and why did they leave that sticking out when designing it? DONT LIKE: * why (or why does it feel like its enforced on the user) that the first wash when you put on the machine is that Eco 40-60 the first programme to pop up rather than the cycle you use the most as the first cycle to show when you first turn on the machine? - they wont even let you remove that cycle in the settings when you go into the menu to choose what cycles you want to show - grrrr...! * When you want to adjust Temperature or Spin speed I find it annoying already to adjust - say i want 1200rpm - why do I have to go 1400rpm then down to no spin then count up instead of (as on most washing machines you go down , so 1400rpm, then 1200rpm, then 1000rpm and so on - that feels more logical to me . LOAD SENSING: * The Machine does load sensing at the beginning of the wash, and it does this load sensing with the garments dry in the drum - it takes about 20 to 30 seconds with the drum tumbling and speeding up every now and again , here's a question why don't manufactures with the informative LED (or dot matrix) display widow tell you (even if briefly) how much Kg of washing the drum has sensed?? - at least it would give the end user an idea if they are overloading their machines or putting in too many garments for the particular cycle they have selected (Say if you are doing a quick wash and the max is 4kg say for the quick wash and a message popped up that you have put in 5 or 6kg in the drum - well then you could then stop the cycle and take some items out of the drum) I wonder why the facility is there to read out the weight of the load in the drum but they choose not to display it on the fascia panel? BUBBLE SOAK: Only available on certain cycles such as Towels and Bedding cycles - it does add 30minutes onto your washing times STEAM FEATURE: * the machine has a steam refresh feature but unlike some other washing machine with this feature you cannot use the steam at the very end of the wash to iron out any of the creases in shirts etc or to make ironing easier - its more like in the blurb from samsung more like a feature to kill germs rather than use it to get rid of creases in garments and only with certain cycles it can be used. OTHER THINGS OBSERVED: I have had the scenario the other day that a lone Sock had got stuck between the glass bowl door and the gasket throughout nearly the whole wash ... it did eventually fall back into the drum when it done a fast spin during the rinses cycle - maybe socks and other small items need to be placed in wash nets or something for this reason? Sometimes the time duration will come up on the display window and you will think 'wow that is going to take a long time washing' but you may find after the drum has gone through its load sensing bit at the start that the time may reduce , so don't be too alarmed at the beginning of selecting a cycle that it is going to take ages to wash when you first select the cycle. This Series 5 model (2020 WW90T534DAW) does not have an 'Add Wash' door feature on the machine ... but I have observed that if the following have not been met: Wash not been long started Water level is under grey door gasket Water is not hot Then when you press the pause button the drum will stop revolving and after a few seconds you will hear a click and the door can be opened for you to add that forgotten odd sock etc... - then long press the start pause button and the washing will recommence where it left off. When washing , if you press the pause button (II) you can select another cycle say if you are halfway through a wash and its taking a long time and you want to advance to rinse & spin or decide you want to choose another cycle instead , you can do that but the caveat is that it will cancel your present cycle and will drain/empty the drum of water and start the new selected cycle all over again from the beginning. This model (WW90T534DAW/WW90T534DAN) has 3 sensor technology the first is (1) 'weight' sensing to check the weight of the items to be washed, presumable to see how much water to add to the drum and how much liquid detergent to the wash - then there is sensor number (2) a 'water level pressure switch' to detect and change the amount of water in the drum (it seems to do this through the wash too so if it starts washing and halfway through the wash feels the water has been soaked up by the garments it will add some more cold water to the drum) - then (3) the Auto-dosing sensor. - However if you want true sensor technology you have to go for the much dearer Samsung washing Machine the 9 series WW90T986DSH/S1 priced at roughly £1,149.99 in the UK which adds a 4th sensor called a Turbidity Sensor. This sensor is situated in the sump of the washing machine and detects the 'drtyness' or cloudiness of the clothes that are to be washed and sends back info to the washing machines electronics that should change things like add more time to the wash or add more rinses if needed automatically and adjust/add more autodose washing liquid detergent to the wash , and more than likely if the items are not that heavily soiled then the Turbidity Sensor should detect and shorten the was time - so if your budget can afford this price this would be the best machine out of the range also you will get more features and more cycles with the WW90T986DSH/S1 as well as a faster selectable spin speed of 1600rpm as opposed to the maximum 1400rpm spin speed of the WW90T534DAW. If you read the leaflets for the WW90T534DAW / WW90T534/DAN washing machines one of the selling points it lists is an Auto Clean Soap Drawer with powerful jets to keep the soap drawer clean of detergent residue ... but (I could be wrong) but I don't think the autodose draw type machines have this feature - yes I could see the normal type soap dispenser models maybe having this feature but i cannot see anything different (apart from the nozzles at the back of the soap dispenser housing for the autodose feature) to denote that this autodose model has a stay-clean soap dispenser compartment myself. SPOT THE SPELLING MISTAKE: Its no biggie and has no effect on the working of the washing machine but it is amusing all the same SHORTCUTS TO SPIN & RINSE & SPIN CYCLES: here is a neat feature that saves you time scrolling through all the cycles with the dial button you can (whatever cycle you have the machine set to - or even if you haven't got a wash cycle set at all) you can quickly get to the rinse cycle by long pressing the 'rinse' button on the fascia or if you want to quickly do a spin simply long press the 'spin' button on the front of the washing machine - cool eh? That's my view of this new washing machine - if you have anything to add or ask please comment - thank you for reading.
  2. I'm about to buy a new washing machine . initially I was thinking to buy a samsung washer dryer or just a samsung washing machine around £400 to £600 range but after some research I realized there has been lots of problem with their Drum Spider arm corrosion right after their warranty expires . Then I decided to go for german models which they are also expensive such as Bosch but i'm not sure how reliable and good they are nowadays compare to korean one such as samsung . I know Bosch is one of the top brands but are they still produce the good quality washing machine ? Also is there any other good brands out there within my budget range ? Anyone have an advice or recommendation? Thanks
  3. a few years back in Currys I saw a beautiful (can I describe a washing machine as beautiful?) samsung Eco Bubble washing machine model number WW10H9600EW at a whopping €1,979.99 (a steal lol) here were the features among many: 10kg load, Colour Touch-screen tablet like control panel on the front fascia Built in Wi-Fi - told you when your washing had finished by texting your mobile and could start washing whilst out using mobile phone Auto dosing - just fill up the liquid detergent and fabric softener and it calculated how much to use on each was automatically Drum light 1600rpm, A+++ , 15min quick wash I mean this washing machine was the dogs ****** it really was - no other washing machine out there like it. But you try buying it now, cannot get it for love nor money. Discontinued from Samsung , and cannot even seem to get on the used market . its like hens teeth! Why, I wonder did Samsung choose to discontinue it and just not persevere and carry on selling it or bring out an updated model with all the same features?. Maybe it wasnt a best seller and they ditched it? - what do you reckon? https://youtu.be/sb3-EAo7JfU
  4. My washing machine is just over 30 months old and developed fault 3e. Samsung refuse to honour the warranty, saying I had not registered the extended 5 years, which I have done. The machine sticks and the drum shudders; If put on pause it will wash after 2-3 hours of consistently pausing it. Does anyone know what this fault is? Could it be the motor? Thanks
  5. My Samsung top load washing machine has been giving me a 4E error code for a couple of weeks. I moved in to a new rental home about 2 months ago. The washer worked great in my old house and worked just fine up until a couple of weeks ago. A technician came and looked at the machine. He said the error code had something to do with the fact that my home doesn’t have a “hot water inlet hookup to the washing machine” or something along those lines. He wasn’t much help, and I felt extra stupid and didn’t ask many questions. So basically I’m wondering... do I need to get another washing machine that’s less high tech? Another brand? Somebody help please!
  6. I have a Samsung EcoBubble 9kg. The wash cycle is fine but when it gets to the dryer stage and error message comes.up saying "FC" and starts beeping. Any suggestions?
  7. I am at wits end here folks. I don't know what to do about this washer i had to replace the back support spindle and finally got that done put the drum back together and the heating element was touching the drum reset that to where it ran through its little bracket and still the machine through the t3 code. I then replaced the thurmistor and still it throws the t3 code after waiting about 20 seconds. I don't know what else to do as all the code references from google searches say to replace the thermistor. I did and i know that bad parts come through but i would hope for $40 it wouldn't had been a bad part! PLEASE HELP ME i don't know what else to do! I can give you the model # if it helps also it is an american vs. of the machine!
  8. Hi There, Yesterday evening our Samsung washing machine (WF70F5E0N4W) was finishing it's cycle when there was quite a large bang and the drum stopped spinning. Having had a look through the troubleshooting pages here, I took the back off the machine and found the belt had clearly come off but was intact. Having refitted the belt I tried a quick wash with a small load and found that, once in the spin cycle, the drum was severely shaking. On further investigation, I found that this time the belt was still intact but I did notice that there was considerable black dust/debris in the housing. There was also a large bolt and washer loose in the bottom of the machine which turned out to be one of a pair that fixes the motor to the drum (see pictures). It appears that the motor has started to part company with the drum... As some of the plastic housing is still attached to the bolt I have a sneaking suspicion this might be quite a considerable fault to fix. We've only recently inherited the machine from the previous owners of the house for free so I'm now debating whether to call someone to attempt a repair or just bite the bullet and buy a new one. I'd really appreciate anyone's thoughts on what the best course of action is? Many Thanks, Matt
  9. Hi My washing machine is Samsung model b1282 The engine starts to work before I set the device program. In fact, there is a problem with error E3, but it does not show error on the device. I want to know what is the problem with the engine's board on the washing machine, which part of it is on the board has problem. Thanks
  10. After some repairwork on my Samsung WF 70F5E0Z4W I have a problem that from what I could tell isn't covered by the washing machine help guide or by searching through the forum. I am having trouble reattaching the gasket to the washing machine because: 1 The outer part of the gasket is glued to the front panel. 2 The area between where the gasket should go and the cement-block weights is about 2 cm. This combines to make is very hard to attach the gasket and to check the seal. Using a pair of clamps to work my way from the bottom to the top by clamping, moving and camping Again seemed to work but water started to leak pretty fast during a short test run of the washing machine. Do you fine folk have any advice, tip or suggestions for tools that might help me get the gasket in its proper place? P.S: I can't take any photos of the washing machine right now but I'll try to get some posted this evening. Edit: Forgot to add the full code of the machine, WF 70F5E0Z4W.
  11. The attached photo shows an object in the drum of our samsung wf80f5e5u4w ecobubble. My thoughts are its a foreign object that it stuck. I have tried to pull it out with long nose pliers but did not succeed. Before l start taking the drum out and apart would you agree its a foreign object or could it be part of the drum that has come loose a slipped in?
  12. I have a ecobubble washing machine. It gives me following sign which I can not understand and it does not turn off automatically as it was used to be. Instead it keep blinking the symbol. I went through the Italian manual (through pictures) I did not find any similar symbol. Please let me what this means and what should I do to stop this symbol.
  13. Samsung SW65V5 suddenly stopped working. No change in supply water pressure. Checked filters and cleaned them. No clogs. When I start a program, the washing machine does nothing, doesn't make any filling noises or any noise at all.It doesn't show any error code initially, then after about 10 minutes displays code 4E.
  14. Hi,[/size] I have just replaced the drain pump on my washing machine and I'm suddenly unsure if what I've done is completely safe. I have a Samsung washing machine, model WF7602NAW/XEE, ser no.: X8985ARQ500554D. I've used a new pump - model M224 XP, it's 40 watts and the old pump, model M-47 is 30 watts. Have I used the wrong part? Does the difference in wattage cause a problem? The website I bought the part on said it fit for model WF7602, and I have a WF7602NAW/XEE what do the letters at the end of the model number mean in this case? The old cover for the original pump also doesn't fit the new one, so I put in the new pump without anything covering it. Does this create a fire risk in the event any dust settles on top of it? I've already done one wash cycle without any problems, but I wanted to be sure that this was safe. I really appreciate any advice I can get! Thanks, Alice
