Cleaning filter on Samsung front loader

Hi! First I'm not a Samsung tech. But I am an equipment tech (retired) but more important I (sorry) WE, have a Samsung front loader too! I was wondering the same question. Where is the filter? We have 5 dogs and 2 cats so I'm pulling a lot of hair from the lower part of the door rubber (there is a small drain hole where stuff collects) But your question prompted me to really look for this filter. The following is from the manual:
* user manual WF45K6500A / WF45K6200A Page 53 (English)
1. Turn off washer, and then unplug power cord.
2. Drain the remaining water inside the drum. See the "Emergency drain" section on page 49
3. Gently press the top area of the filter cover to open (it's located at the lower left front of washer. ukeboy57) C
4. Turn the pump filter knob (A) to the left and drain off remaining water.
5.Clean the pump filter using a soft brush. Make sure the drain pump propeller inside the filter is unclogged.
6. Reinsert the pump filter, and then turn the filter knob to the right.
7. Close the filter cover.

Note; If the pump filter is clogged, the "5C" information code appears on the washer display screen.

* Final; I haven't done this yet though we had this machine for a month now and I suspect it's filthy. Warning though, the emergency draining looks messy so have the pan and towels ready. (and I just got finished tiling the laundry room floor too!)
Aloha, ukeboy57

Why is clean water collecting in the drum of my washing machine afer a cycle?

Replace the inlet solenoids. They are where the hoses attach to at top back of machine. Dead easy replacement. Couple of screws and a tubing clamp

There are many reasons why a dehumidifier willnot work or collect water.

I hope someone answers this because I'm having the same problem. Mine is about 4 years old. I thought it was my filthy filter but cleaning didn't change the problem.

My clothes are coming out smeeling musty

I have a zwf1241w with similar problem. When I disconnected the drain hose that runs from the drum casing to the pump housing there was a lot of collected debris that had prevented the water from draining through properly. You could try clearing this out.

Water appears in drum after wash cycle is finished.

if you remove the front cover there is a drain plug that holds change and lint paperclips etc, it fills up and gets plugged and wont go throught the drainig pump. if you find this and clean it out you will be good for another 6 months...its important to check pockets before washing

4E code keeps apearing

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.
