Samsung WF331ANW/XAA door problem
« on: June 24, 2014, 08:29:56 PM »

I have a Samsung washer, model: WF331ANW/XAA. I bought it 2 years ago.

Now, the door cannot be locked when it starts washing. The door will open gradually during washer running, and this makes the washer stop again and again.

Does everyone know how to fix this? Can I get the replacement parts anywhere?

Thanks in advance!! :thanks:

Hi,


Sounds like the door switch assembly needs to be replaced, part # 8182634.

Hi AJ,

Thanks for your suggestion, but the part you suggested is for Whirlpool washer, isn't it?
Can I use that part to replace on my Samsung washer?

I looked up the part using the model number you posted, it is the correct one for your model.

Samsung and Whirlpool use the same door lock.
