Washer doesn't start right away


I was given a Samsung washer and dryer from a friend who was upgrading theirs.

The only complaint I have is that it takes FOREVER to start the wash...

Any ideas for how to remedy this?

Welcome to the forums.

A model number would be helpful.
Did you check with the neighbor to see if they had the same problem ?

Might be inlet screens are clogged, take hoses off washer and take screens out and clean them. Be sure to put back in.
