Samsung Washer Repair – Part 2

Now it has been over a year since we repaired the washing machine and I’m happy to say that it is still running without vibration.

We did not end up replacing the bearings because they are did not appear to be any damage. Also was having a difficult time finding them so if I did need them it probably would’ve prolonged the repair.

It did take a couple of weeks to complete this. Part of it was I wanted to get the part for the cheapest price I could and the company I chose was a little slow on shipping. Partly because I didn’t want to pay too much. Also it took about a week and a half to have my friend powder coat the part. But in the end we were very happy with how it all turned out. Obviously nothing that Samsung had done contributing to us being happy. But it did work out in the end just a big job.

The pictures below are all of the flange adapter after it was powder coated. If there are any changes in the condition of the machine I will post them here. But it has been just over a year now and it is working as it was designed.

    Just disassembled my 5 year old washer and found pretty much the same thing. The unit started ‘rocking and rolling’ a couple of loads before my wife mentioned it to me. I did a bing search and found this article. I rotated the empty drum and observed that the drum rotated in a slightly elliptical orbit.That prompted me to take it apart and check. Not total failure, but quite a bit of corrosion including some spots that were corroded clear through. Enough to make it wobble. I didn’t observe any cracks, but I am convinced there was enough corrosion that another couple of loads of wash and it would have catastrophic failure.

      My 6 yr old Samsung is doing the same thing. I took it apart and have corrosion hole in the drum support arm but no fracture. Drum spins out of round by about 3/8 of an inch. Did you replace your part and did it cure the vibration issue?

      Did you end up replacing the spider arm?
