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.

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.
