My washers drain pump cycles off and on about ten times before the spin cycle starts is that normal? Each cycle is only a few seconds and only pulls a little bit of water each time, but it will empty the drum. How do I get the drain pump out? Can I put the washer on its side and do it that way?
ANSWER Hello Bob. It is normal for the pump DC96-01700A to cycle on and off before the spin cycle. This is the way samsung has programed the control board, and prevents the pump from over heating in the unit as well. Disconnect the power and remove the top panel. 1. Seperate the Front-frame and remove two M12
nuts. 2. Separate the Clamp of the hose connected to
the Drain-Motor and remove the screw. 3. Separate the wire connector. If the washing machine works, drain the water
in the wash tub by selecting the Spin course.
If the washing machine does not work, remove
the laundry from the wash tub and scoop the
remaining water out of the tub using a cup. Remove the pump from the unit.
