How to Fix Error Code UR on Samsung Washer
Here’s how to fix error code UR on Samsung washing machines:
- Reset your washing machine
- Balance the washer load
- Check and inspect the control board
I will explain these fixes in detail. First, however, here are some words of caution:
If your Samsung washing machine is under warranty, I recommend contacting Samsung support and asking for advice. Unfortunately, opening your Samsung washer will void its warranty in most cases, so leave it as a last option.
Reset your Washing Machine
Mostly, your Samsung washer display error code UR due technical glitches in its program or board. These problems can be quickly resolved by simply resetting your washer.
So, the first step in troubleshooting your Samsung washer when it is stuck on the rinse cycle is to reset it.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to reset a Samsung washing machine.
Balance the Load
Another common cause of Samsung washers giving error code UR is the uneven load. Remember, each washer has a specific capacity beyond or below which it cannot operate.
It is essential to ensure the load is balanced correctly and the washer adequately loaded. Try removing some clothes from your washer and try again.
Similarly, if it has only a few items, add more clothes and then try again.
Faulty Control Board
If none of the above fixes the problem on your Samsung washing machine, then its control board might have malfunctioned.
As its name suggests, the control board is the brain of electronic washers. If the control board of your Samsung washing machine malfunctions, it will not operate as it should.
The control board is inside the washing machine, so you must disconnect your Samsung washer from the power source before accessing it.
If your Samsung washer is under warranty, do not attempt to inspect or replace the control board yourself, as it will void its warranty.
