Samsung Washing Machine Making Noise [Causes & Solutions]

A Samsung washing machine making noise irritates a lot of people. Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it. If your washer is making different noises, this guide will help you identify the cause of the issue and how to fix it.

So, without wasting any more time, let’s begin…

Samsung Washing Machine Making Noise When Spinning

Here are the most common things that can cause your Samsung washing machine to make noise when spinning…

1. Washer Is Not Level

If your washing machine is not properly sitting on the floor, it will shake quite a bit during spin cycles. As a result of this, a lot of noise will be produced.

To fix this issue, ensure that your washing machine sits on a firm, even surface. After checking if the surface is level, check the washer’s legs to ensure that no one is longer than the other.

If you notice the washer’s legs aren’t equal, tilt the machine back a bit and adjust the legs by hand as needed. To secure the legs at the length you choose, use the provided spanner to tighten the bolt around each leg. Use a leveler to ensure that the washer is properly balanced.

2. Item Stuck In Washer’s Drum

If an item such as a coin is stuck between your washer’s inner and outer drum, a lot of noise will be produced during spin cycles. Here’s what to do to fix this this problem…

Step 1. Turn off your washing machine’s water and power supply to avoid electrocution and water spills.

Step 2. Open the door of your washing machine.

If you notice that you Samsung washer is making noise during cycles, it is most likely the result of a defective drain pump. Here’s what to do to fix this issue…

Step 1. Turn off your washing machine’s water and power supply to avoid electrocution and water spills.

Step 2. Disconnect the water supply hose from the back of the washing machine.

Step 3. Disconnect the washer’s drain hose from your home drain.

Step 4. Carefully tilt your washing machine onto its side.

Step 5. Depending on your washer’s model, there may be a metal noise sheet at the bottom. To remove the noise sheet, use a Philips screwdriver to take out the screws holding it.

Step 6. You will see a thick, black hose connected to the drain pump. Detach the two wire harnesses connected to the pump.

Step 7. The drain pump is held to the washer by three screws. Take the screws out using a Philips screwdriver.

Step 8. With the screws removed, take the drain pump out of the washer.

Step 10. Take your new drain pump out of its pack.

Step 11. Check to see if the new drain pump has the black seal around it. If it does not, put the seal from the old pump on it.

Step 12. Pop the new drain pump into the same position as the one you removed.

Step 13. Secure the new drain pump by applying the three screws around it.

Step 14. Connect each wire harness to its appropriate terminal on the drain pump.

Step 15. If your washer has one, screw the noise sheet back in place at the bottom of the machine.

Step 16. Lift the washing machine upright.

Step 17. Reconnect the water supply hose to the back of the washer.

Samsung Washing Machine Making Noise When Finished

Samsung washing machines normally play a tune when a wash cycle is through. Many people find this tune irritating. However, there is some good news; you can turn the sound on your washing machine off.

To deactivate the sound on your Samsung washing machine, all you need to do is simultaneously press and hold the Spin and Option buttons for three seconds until the mute icon shows on the display. For some other models, you will have to press the Rinse and Spin buttons.

The buttons you should press will vary depending on the model of your washer. For washers with buttons, look for the volume icon on the control panel. You should see two lines pointing to two buttons. These are the buttons you need to press to deactivate the sound.

If your Samsung washing machine is very modern, we suggest consulting your washer’s manual to learn the proper controls.

Note: If your Samsung washing machine is an old model, you won’t be able to do a thing about the sound.

Samsung Washing Machine Making Noise During Agitation

Most times a grinding noise coming your washer isn’t really a cause for alarm. It often comes as a result of the washer’s agitator switching between rotating left and rotating right.

A grinding noise from your Samsung washing machine could also be a result of putting too many clothes in the drum. Try reducing the quantity of clothes you put in the drum. Also remember to spread the clothes evenly in the drum to distribute the weight.

If neither of these things was the cause of your washer’s problem, there may be a more serious issue. It is advised that you contact a washer repair service to further diagnose the situation.

Samsung Washing Machine Making Noise When Filling

If your Samsung washer makes noise when filling with water, it is a result of the water pressure being very high. This isn’t really a cause for alarm. However, in order to prevent leakage, it is advised that you close the water supply valve a bit to reduce water pressure.

Samsung Washing Machine Making Clicking Noise

If your washing machine makes a clicking sound at the beginning or end of a wash cycle, it is completely normal. However, if you notice the sound throughout the cycle, there may be an item of clothing with metal on it. This piece of metal knocks against the washer’s drum and produces a clicking sound.

You may also get a clicking sound from your washer if the machine isn’t properly balanced on the floor. To fix this, all you need to do is adjust the level of the legs by hand and secure them at the desired length using the supplied wrench.
