Hello,

I am trying to get to the bottom of the stopping-mid-cycle issue, which many people have posted about. The first advice is to run the calibration cycle, which should last for 3 minutes. WEll, ours is running for over and hour (it got stuck at 31 minutes, and flashed the "0" code at me...) And as it continues to run it is saying "-AG". Could anyone tell me what "-AG" means?

If this recalibration doesn't work, I will run a drum clean (which I understand is what the "0" code means). This is quite an old model now - 10 years almost to the day. I cannot find any advice on how to run a drum clean. Do I just run the hottest cotton wash?

If that doesn't work, I am guessing it will need a new motor and/or PCB, as that seems to be what most people are finding. Is anyone able to estimate how much that is likely to cost? It is well out of guarantee, and - while I would like to keep it running - the parts may be prohibitively expensive.

Thank you

Don't know about the error code, but our washing machine had the pcb replaced under warranty probably 5 ish years ago and the engineer said to leave it at least an hour between washes so it can cool down, which considering most programs took 4 hours meant not much washing was being done! It was a common problem they weren't interested in fixing.
It gave up again earlier this year and after a cursory search across the 'net the pcb was several hundred pounds - so the washer went outside for scrap collectors to take. Got a bosch and it's fantastic.

Thanks for this! It's good to know I'm not alone in this, and a general price too...the good news is that after the calibration and drum wash, it has behaved itself this morning. We shall see...anymore bad behaviour, and I may be pushed to scrap it, as it seems Samsung's PCBs are not up to scratch and this old friend is past it's best. To be fair, it has seen a LOT of action through 2 kids and their washable nappy days.

Ours was good until it did it's first tizzy, then after the engineer's words of advice about looking after it had us on tenterhooks as to how long until it started again, which was a good few years but with that happening we were both adamant the next one wasn't going to be a sammy.
