    Default Samsung washer model WA422PRHDWR/AA stuck in spin cycle

    Model Number: WA422PRHDWR
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    So, my WA422PRHDWR/AA samsung washer has an issue where it just gets stuck in the spin cycle.

    There's no abnormal sounds, it drains fine, it just spins and spins and spins. It has an estimated timer on that usually is in the ~15 minute range, but it'll stay there without changing for literally hours. Eventually I just get tired and turn it off manually.

    The clothes come out mostly dry, maybe a little more damp than usual.

    I've looked into basic troubleshooting, looked at diagnostic and calibration modes, and got a few unbalanced load errors in the diagnostic history. They rarely show up during normal use.

    But nothing I can explain why it drains fine, but gets stuck in spin cycle.

    My only thought is that the washer cylinder itself seems a bit wobbly. I posted a link to a video of it. Is it normal to have this much room to move the washer cylinder?

    If it is not normal, how do I fix that?

    Hi,

    The movement in your tub is normal per your video.

    The problem is in the control board, not shutting down the spin cycle.

    Here's the control board for your model:
    DC92-01021B Main Control Board

    I am suspecting that it might be the control board as well.

    Is there a concrete way to diagnose this, other than the fact that it doesn't shut down the spin cycle?

    No, not that I'm aware of.

    But that's the only part keeping the power to it on and going.
