Also how old approximately it is?
Hi I am here just had to step away for a few mins
Is it like it just fills then empties?
Does the drum turn at all?
Thanks Tech Michael
One last question, does it fill and drain at the same time, or drains just after filling?
so it will spin?
unfortunately the motor stator has failed.
It will need to be replaced.
Its pretty easy to do if you are handy and have a few basic hand tools.
The best place to get a new stator is: http://www.espares.co.uk/browse/at1085ma596/washing-machines/samsung

That's great news!
Yes you did the right thing. I would have done exactly the same thing ;-)
If it keeps breaking then yes you will need a new stator.
Yeah I didn't get the image either?
But Im sure I know how you did it ;-)
But if the wire is now securely attached it should be ok. You should always try to make a good mechanical connection as well as solder because solder can melt if it gets too hot, and its not meant to be the only connection for something like this;-)
Hi DJ, so are you saying the wrapped wire broke? The varnish coated wire? The one that makes up the stator?
Your very welcome!
That will work ;-)
Hi yes you will be able to replace that as well, but its not called a look lol;-)
Its a plug in wire connector do the stator .
Anytime always happy to help;-)
Have a great weekend Darrell!
