Find you owners manual, it should say how to clean the button trap on your pump

Unplug the machine FIRST!

Get some towels, you will have water coming out.

if the tub is full of water you will need to bale it out!

Remove the lower front panel, usually two screws,

look for the pump it will have hoses on it. now lay some towels around, expect water.

Unscrew the end of the pump, if it has a button trap or lint filter.
it will be on or near the pump refer to your owners manual

If you dont have an owners manual you may find it at Samsung.com?

Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely, if the issue returns then it is time for a new pump. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

HI- Washer really don't have a lint filter so to speak. Some of the front load washers have a filter in the drain pump but that basically just keep the quarters and bobby pins from ruining the pump. Is it possible to have someone extend your standpipe with a larger diameter pipe that you could place a screen into, or place the screen on the drain hose and then put them both into the larger pipe. A plumber should be able to figure something out. It would be about $1000 dollars cheaper than buying a front-loader and probably more effective. Good luck.

Washing machine not draining or spinning. samsung j1043.


Samsung washer drain pumps usually have a trap that may be holding a large amount of debris (buttons, pins, coins, etc) and lint packs around all of it and the water can't drain, which means the unit won't spin. A more complete model number would be required to find out if the trap is accessible by removing the front panel or not.

LG FRont Load Washer Dryer WD-1256RD filling up with lint


If you have not done it already, replace the lint filter. Follow instructions on manual. The lint filter access should be on front side of machine.

Other users had same problem on this model, I quote:
"I've only had it 2 weeks so far. It seems to be collecting lint/fluff all around the rubber door lining"
Source here.

Sometimes there may be too much lint if you use excessive softener and detergent.

GE top load washer w/no lint trap leaves excessive lint


Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.
