Samsung Drain Pump Relocation Kit

Posted on July 19, 2014

To improve quality Samsung has relocated the drain pump assembly from the bottom of the tub to the base of the washer on certain model numbers and production dates.  Previously these washers used part number DC97-16985A for the drain pump but this pump has been discontinued and replaced with one of the two service kits part # DC98-01877A or DC98-01877B depending on the model number and manufacture date of the washer.  First locate your model and serial number tag on the washing machine.  This tag is located on the top back console of the washer, and it will list the model number, serial number, and manufacture date. The manufacture date is listed in the format of YYYY.MM (ex: 2012.06).  Below is an example model and serial number tag to show where the manufacture date is located.

If the washer was manufactured before 12/9/2012 and you have one of the qualifying models, then you will need to order the corresponding drain pump kit listed in the chart below.  Washers manufactured 12/10/2012 and later use part number PD00030925 for the drain pump and do not require the drain pump relocation kit.  Please not that the manufacture date is listed in the format of YYYY.MM (ex: 2012.06) on the tag of the washer and it will not show the day it was manufactured.  If the washer was manufactured in the month of December of 2012 you will need to check the washer to see if the pump is located on the bottom of the tub.  If the pump is located on the bottom of the tub you will need to order a drain pump relocation kit.  For installation instructions, please see the bottom of this post.

Model Code Manufacture Date BOM Version Use Part #
WA400PJHDWR/AA 12/9/2012 or Earlier 000  PD00004957
WA422PRHDWR/AA 12/9/2012 or Earlier 000  PD00004957

WA456DRHDWR/AA 12/9/2012 or Earlier 000 PD00004977

When the drain pump fails it can cause water to leak from the pump or it can cause the water not to drain out of the washing machine.

If you need to order one of the drain pump kits, you can click one of the links in the the above chart, or one of the links below. Parts Dr always has the lowest prices on OEM appliances parts.

How To Install Samsung Dryer Heating Element DC97-14486A

Samsung dryer heating element DC97-14486A is used on many Samsung clothes dryers and even some Maytag (Neptune) and Amana dryer models.  When the heating element goes bad, it will usually have a break in the heating coil which will cause the element not to heat.  These instructions work for most Samsung dryers, some may have some small differences but the overall process if very similar.  Here is how to replace and test the DC97-14486A & DC47-00019A heating element:

First, unplug or shut off the power to the dryer before working on it.

How_to_remove_samsung_dryer_heating_element_DC47-00019A

Then remove the two screws securing the top panel to the back of the dryer.  Slide the top panel towards the back of the dryer to remove.  Now you will need to remove the front control panel, some model will have screws securing this. Remove them and then pull up to remove, you should have enough extra wire to set the control panel on top of the dryer to get it out of the way (if not, then disconnect the wires and set it off to the side).

Behind where the control panel was there will be four screws that secure the front panel of the dryer to the frame.  Remove these four screws.

How_to_remove_samsung_dryer_heating_element_DC47-00019A_2

Open the door of the dryer, there will be two screws that need to be removed at the bottom of the door frame area.  With those two screws removed you should be able to tilt the front panel forward, remove the connector to the door switch, and remove the front panel.

How_to_remove_samsung_dryer_heating_element_DC47-00019A_3

The heating element is located on the bottom right side of the dryer.  To remove the element you will need to remove the wires to the heating element, thermal fuse, and thermostat.  Then remove the mounting screw in the front and the whole heating element assembly should pull out the front of the dryer.

To test the heating element, you will need an Ohm meter or multi-meter.  A good heating element should read approximately 9-10 ohms.  A burned out element will have an infinite resistance (it won’t register anything).  See the video below for instructions on how to test the heating element.

To re-install the heating element you will need to put everything back in the reverse order.  If you lost track of how the wires connect to the heating element, please see the picture below.

If you need to purchase a new Samsung dryer heating element, click one of the two links below.

The best way to purchase the heating element is as an assembly. The heating element assembly includes the heating element, two thermostats, and housing.

Heating Element Assembly –  Part # PD00002003 (mfg # DC97-14486A)

We also sell the heating element by itself.  You will need to re-use the thermostats and element housing.

How To Remove Samsung IMC701 DA97-05422A Ice Maker

Removing and installing a new Samsung DA97-05422A (IMC701) ice maker on a french door refrigerator is a pretty easy task.  This ice maker will often fail and make a clicking noise when it breaks.  First unplug the refrigerator.  Then remove the screw on the left, this will allow you to pull off the side panel and unplug the connector that goes to the ice maker.  Next pull the locking tab down on the ice maker while pulling the ice maker towards you.  This will release it.  Re-install the new ice maker in the reverse order.

*Note, this ice maker has the letters IMC701 written on the bottom.  Parts are not available for this ice maker separately, if something breaks, the whole ice maker must be replaced

If you have a bad ice maker and need to purchase a new one, click the link below:

Samsung Blinking Dash/Line Error Code List

Posted on July 16, 2011

Samsung refrigerators will start to blink a Dash or Line on the display when they there is an error code.  For example, if #12 in the diagram below was blinking then the computer thinks that there is a problem with the condenser fan motor.  Keep in mind that error codes are a starting point, and replacing the part related to the problem does not always fix the problem.  There can be a problem with the stated part, wiring, main PCB control board, and sometimes even an un-related part.  If you are unsure you should hire a technician to properly diagnose the problem.
