Error Code dc
It is one of the most common error codes for a Samsung washer. This dc appears when your washer spins or spinning is being blocked by function. You know an unbalanced load decreases washing machine performance. So, Samsung washer comes with an unbalance load detector sensor. When you put an unbalanced load in the washer tub, its sensor detects it and blocks spinning. At this point, you need to reset your Samsung washer’s programs.
Don’t worry! I have the best solution for you. Just open washer’s door and redistribute the load inside the washtub. Now your washer is all set. Press the Cycle selector, and reset the error code. Remember that large or heavy items like bath mats or large towels are unlikely to spin on their own. So, you must add extra 2/3 towels with them.
Error Code dL
