Efficient Installation of a New Drum Assembly in Samsung Washing Machines by Professional TechniciansBrand: Samsung
Attention: Installation of a new drum assembly in Samsung washing machines is a complex undertaking that should only be handled by qualified professionals.
Our client reached out to us with a perplexing issue – their Samsung washing machine was failing to complete cycles, leaving laundry in a damp state. Upon investigation, our technician identified a significant problem: the washing machine was not engaging in the spin cycle after completing the main wash cycle.
Corrosion, Overload, and Spider Malfunctioning
The root cause was traced to a substantial mechanical issue involving the drum assembly. The drum is connected to the motor through a shaft, with a component called the spider securing it at the end. Over the years, this spider, made of an aluminum alloy, undergoes corrosion, diminishing its original strength. Overloading the washing machine, especially with heavy, unbalanced items like rugs, can put excessive stress on the spider. This strain can cause the spider to malfunction or break down. This can lead to the spider breaking, causing the drum to detach from the axis connected to the motor.
In some instances, the damage to the spider is partial, allowing the washing machine to continue with washing cycles. However, during the spin cycle, a severe imbalance occurs, prompting the machine to halt – precisely the issue our client experienced.
Repairing such a problem is exceptionally intricate and often comes with a substantial cost. To replace the spider, the entire washing machine needs disassembly, requiring removal of the drum assembly as a whole. This process involves dismantling the outer shell and extracting the axis from the bearings. Detaching the spider from the drum can be challenging due to corrosion. Subsequently, the new spider is installed on the drum, and the assembly is reinserted into the outer shell, along with a new seal.
Sometimes, opting for an entire drum assembly replacement can be more cost-effective. The assembly as a whole costs more than just the spider. However, replacing the assembly requires much less labor, which helps keep the overall repair cost comparable. Additionally, with this approach, clients receive a brand-new drum, new bearings, and a new outer shell – a considerable advantage.
