    Having same problem, cannot turn heavy wet load of more than "three bath towels" hardly a big load! without squeaking,grinding and straining to even turn. Also experienced holes in clothes.! and wash never looks clean, have also noticed black scum. Very dissappointed with front loaders, will revert back to top loader. Never had so many socks dissappear since using front loader, explains why not turning I gather !

    I'd send it to repairers but the sheer weight needs three guys to lift rotten thing onto ute, so cheaper to buy a top loader., and it wont take all day to wash !!!! As for water saving - time taken to complete a load cycle - cost more in electricty to run......Lucky we're on tank water...

It appears your drive belt/coupling 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.

Started squeaking when washing ( 3 yrs old)


Bearings squeak, rollers that help rotation of the drum squeak, then lock up, and are eventually worn down by the rotating drum. If a front loader, removing the front door panel should let you see the coaster wheels that support the front of the drum. Maybe a little oil there would help.

I have a front loader samsung j1045.it just wont go on most cycles,so i was just using it on colours.now its showing the error de after a few minutes and beeping..please help?? Nan T


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'de' stands for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Front loader iwll not start DE error code Samsung model J1045


this means door error sometimes you have to rewire it, replace the computer & the door interlock all at the same time to fix it try the door interlock first beware sometimes if you dont do it all at once the new part gets taken out as well so fingers crossed its just the door interlock.best option to have samsung service agent out to check out with diagnostic tools.

The drum is not spinning


Most likely a broken belt, it is not uncommon in Samsung front loaders. There is cover at the rea to access the belt, They are easy to fit as they stretch fit so no adjustments are needed.

Lg front loader makes squeaking sound and struggles to spin


The drum is powered by a small motor and pulley, inside the unit and under the drum. A large belt wraps around the drum and pulley, and a spring "thing" provides tension so that the belt won't slip. The squeaking sound indicates that something is slipping, and the sluggish drum says that it's the drive belt. Take off the back, locate the motor/pulley/spring thing, and check the belt tension by observing the belt with unit operating. At that point you should easily locate the noise, at the motor (noisy bearing, lube or replace), belt warn (replace) or possibly the felt pads located at the top of the drum worn (not as likely but they do fail causing the drum to resist being spun by the motor to the point that the belt starts to slip. Hope this helps!
