As everyone here my washer stops midway and lately giving 3e warning and research shows I need to check the carbon. But I can not for the love of God remove the motor. What do I need to do? I removed 2 bolts.
Samsung also recommended I replace my washing machine directly and save 25% on a replacement (!)
Following yet another 3E error last week, I managed to locate a new main PCB for my 12 kg model from 2014. That needed replacing a WEEK before the warranty expired in Feb 2016. Well, it's given me four years of service until last week (Jan 2020) where the error has come back. Replacing it really did the trick.
At £146 it's not cheap to buy, but it's better than that plus a callout and technicians fee, which could mount to £200 more.
Sorry, Samsung, I get the BEST wash from your Ecobubble, but if it goes again, I'll either replace the PCB AGAIN or buy an LG.
My mum's Bendix Deluxe lasted 10 years from 1979, and then her Zanussi lasted 18 years. No one should go through four washing machines in a decade!
