Hello, the problem started a few months ago. The washer will stop mid cycle, at random times and even increase the time on the display, and just stall out. The Samsung tech came out to look for a $150 diagnostic.
Recommended the following:
Replace stator motor
Replace wire harness
The diagnostic mode runs successfully through all the cycles, drains properly.
I started off replacing the stator motor as this was the easiest. Installed, reset the EEPROM to clear codes - the washer worked for a quick wash cycle a few times. Then back to not working and error code (only found in the service mode - not displayed mid cycle) - code 3E2
Replaced main PCB and carefully checked each connection. Same thing. Worked a few quick cycles and then stopping mid cycle. Error code 3E2.
Went ahead and bought a drain pump and Drain pump wire harness because I read something on a forum about it. Took this beast apart to get to the front. No help with that.
Finally, disassembled the front a second time, meticulously replaced the entire wire harness with a new one. Worked 4 times, no error code. I kept checking the service mode after every cycle for codes. Finished cycle, sang the little Samsung song at the end. I thought "VICTORY!" Then the 5th wash - same exact thing. Stopped mid cycle. Checked service mode - error code 3E2.
I don't know where else to go with this. It's an expensive proposition because this is a stackable unit with a in a custom built in area of wash room. Buying new will also mean buying a new dryer so it's a $2500 problem. I would REALLY like to get this working again. Any help appreciated! - Chris
