Hiya Andnichol,

 

So glad your machine got fixed and is working well.

Did your local washing machine guy say what the problem was please? We seemto have a similar problem with ours and wondering if it is the motherboard? We have a quote from Samsungs preferred engineering company, but worried we will be charged thier extortionate call out fee to be told the machine is irreparable.

 

Thanks in advance.
