Question about Washing Machines

Hi I have a Samsung 7kg Washing Machine (J1453s) and It will not do a wash or spin cycle. I have cleaned the debris filter and the mesh filter. I have checked the Belt and all is fine. Do you know what else I could try.

It appears your primary controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My samsung washing machine J1453S is having a problem with spinning, no problem with loading water, drive belt is fine.


Hi donna sarmie,

It could be your machine is stuck on the drain cycle, and won't continue to spin, because the drain filter is clogged.

You may need to clean the Drain Filter, please find my Tip below on the procedure:

ACCESSING, DRAINING & CLEANING THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

Kind Regards :-)

WD-J1255C SAMSUNG washing machine is washing but doesn't drain and spin. what could be the problem and possible solution? thanks


Best guess is a blocked filter. If the filter blocks, the machine won't drain and if it isn't drained, then the spin cycle won't kick in.

I'm not familiar with your machine, but chances are that there is a filter door at the bottom of the machine at the front that should be opened, the filter removed and cleaned.

I'm presuming that your machine is half full of water at the moment, so in order to remove the filter and clean it at this stage, you would do well to unplug the machine from the mains and then tip it backwards 45 degrees so that the water doesn't escape when you remove the filter! Best thing is to tip it back onto a chai if you are doing this alone, so the chair can take the weight while you undo the filter.

Now.... IF you are unlucly and have no filter in the front then go take a look underneath while it is tipped back. There will be a rubber hose that leads down to a debris trap, then on to the pump. You will need to unclip the spring clamp that holds this in place in order to get access to the debris inside. PROBLEM here: you are unlikely to do this without getting very wet!

I would suggest in this case, repeatedly putting the machine onto spin cycles, it will attempt to drain the water and slowly, bit by bit it will get the water out. Once it has drained (after attempting to put it through a dozen spin cycles probably) you should then be able to access the filter/debris without getting too wet!

If you do have a filter that is accessible through the small front door I described, I would suggest that you make it a monthly task to remove and clean it at the end of a wash cycle to avoid this issue in the future.

I have a samsung 7Kg J845 front load washing mechine, when i turn on, water not fills enough ( only water fills couple of seconds after stops flows. the error shows 4E, Then i clean up all mesh filters...


When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.


Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

I have a samsung J1043 7kg washing machine, apon usage of it, i get an error half way threw its washing stages. on the digital screen a message 3E pops up and then im stumped, i have drain the machine,...


3E means the motor is running below or above the programming RPM's, this is a real problem. hold down the two left buttons while pressing the power button. this will present you with the testing system. Press the temp button and T1 will appear. press the start button on the machine will move through the phases in 3 second bursts. if your drum doesn;t move your motos shot. Good luck
