J1045a possible drain pump problem

My Samsung J1045a front loader isn't draining all the water automatically. After about 10 minutes of grinding noises in the pump and only small amounts of water being pumped out the machine displays error 5E. I have removed and cleaned the debris filter, checked the black tube running from the tub to the drain pump and free of obstructions, checked the impeller isn't broken and spins freely, checked the outlet pipe and drain pipe are also free of obstructions. I have checked that the impeller spins when the pump is running (or trying to run). I have also run a hot (90 degree) wash with bicarb soda and vinegar, which loosened some soft build up and expelled some hard grainy material but the issue remains. It appears from other posts on the site that the drain pump might need replacing - before I do so, are there any other things I could check. If the drain pump is the fault, would any water be pumped out? At the moment some amounts are pumped out but not all. In addition, when we stood the machine back up after trying to diagnose and fix the pump issue the machine now fills continuously. I'm getting to the point where I'm considering a new machine. This is another issue in a long list we've had with this machine.

Hay Crab.
what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure switch...it is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...

replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.

It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps

SOURCE: miele W1712 washing machine drain fault

Just had the same problem, after Much patience and persistence I found the blockage at the y piece that joins the pump to the outlet hose air trap towards the top of the machine LHS with the top and cover off.

It was clogged solid therefore no back pressure on the top little ball valve (between the air trap and the outlet) therefore no seal therefore norain therefore a drain-fault that persists regardless of a cleaned pump filter.

Washer won't drain


ND means No Drain(ing). First check that the drain hose isn't kinked. Then, check to make sure the drain hose isn't pushed so far down into the standpipe that it is sealed closed. If it is too tight in the standpipe, it will create a siphoning effect. It has to sit freely but securely in the pipe.

Front loader stuck in final spin - not draining


Hello,

Very likely the reason your washer isn't draining is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so it cant drain, its a fairly common thing wrong with those type front loaders soi have written this tip covering how to clean that filter, http://www1.fixya.com/support/r10121384-check_when_duet_washer_door_locked_after

I have the error code OE showing up, and the water is not draining from the washer. What should I do?


OE - drain error - 5 minute time out drain time error. check your pump/filter for blockages. Clean out the trap from the bottom, something is jamming the drain motor.

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

Won't spin--just makes a grinding noise


Hi.

The grinding noise usually means that there are objects stuck in the drain pump filter.

with front loader the drain pump filter is often located behind an access door or a trim on the front side at the bottom. Open the door or remove the trim, then unscrew the cap. Be prepared to collect the water. Disconnect power before starting.

Top loaders have pump access from underneath or at the back.

Check the drain hose for blockage. and see if the water filters is clogged. Specific instructions will vary based on your specific LG model. Most LG frontloaders have an access panel on the front for the water filter.
