Question about Samsung Washing Machines

1 Answer

My J845 won't start

My front loader won't start, in fact it shorts out the power in that part of the house. We have checked the filters and my boyfriend has had a good look inside and also checked the brushes. There was no smell and no indication whatever that there is anything wrong with the motor. He also cleaned the casing around the brushes. The drum appears to be fine as is the belt and by the looks, the board at the front. After having a good look we attempted to turn it on again. It came up with the error message, according to the manual, that the door was open. We checked the door. It then started shorting out again. Any ideas? Could it be the fuse? We had a look for this but couldn't seem to locate it. Also, it was suggested that it could be the solenoid. Thank you :)

SOURCE: lg wd-3243rhd front load washer and dryer combo "le" error message

LE error code means the motor sensor has failed.  The motor sensor is located in the back of unit inside the motor.  You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG.  You will need a 17 mm and 10 mm socket tools to do this job.

Hi
An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Whirlpool washer dryer has been making a grinding noise for a while and now won't drain


Hi.

The grinding noise was probably being caused by objects stuck in the drain filter. Disconnect power and check the drain filter. On Whirlpool front loaders the filter is accessed from the front of the machine. You will need to unscrew the filter cap and to remove blockage With top loaders the access is underneath or at the back. You lean the appliance on one side and disconnect the hose directly connected to the pump. Disconnect power before starting maintenance.

Here a page about drain/spin problem.

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?
