Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have had a Samsung P1253 washing machine for 14 months and today it started making a grinding, clicking noise. I removed the debris filter at the front of the machine and checked the drain pump propeller. The propeller came away in my fingers and I found a piece of metal, which I asume was supposed to be holding the propeller in. I rang Samsung and, because I've had the washer over 1 year, there's noting they can do but give me the number of their approved repair company. Any ideas?

Samsung SW60ASP washing machine won't spin or drain

5E is a Drain Error Code.

This can be caused by a clogged filter in the washing machine or a blocked drain line in your house. There can be a few other reasons, but these are the most likely.

If you would like to try to repair it yourself, then follow these instructions:

UNPLUG the washing machine. Repeat, UNPLUG the washing machine!!!

Check the filter in the back of the washing machine on the bottom right-hand corner. Place a shallow dish under the filter. Loosen the filter to drain out the water. Remove the filter and clean it out. Look at where you removed the filter and you will see the water pump impeller. Make sure it can move and isn't locked up. Remove any debris from the impeller.

Replace the filter, and plug in the machine. Try a short wash cycle.
Check for leaks around the filter.

Ewf1074 washing machine problems

I would remove the water lines from hot and cold and look inside them on the back of the washer sometimes debris builds up on the built in screens and forced water makes it vibrate making noise like you are describing. An easy check and could save you tons of cash.

Grinding noise from the pump of my wm2688hnm, cleaned plastic filter (it did have some minor debris)...ran another rinse/spin cycle, runs a couple of minutes and then starts to make a grinding noise and...

Take top off, take control panel off, take front off. Now you can get to pump. Check videos from, or for how to. Not that hard. Just many steps.

Washer is Kenmore He2 model # 110.46462501

It sounds like you have something stuck in the pump.
To repair
Unplug machine.
Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be carful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

If you remove the back panel, there are two pumps towards ethier side at the botom of the tub. If you remove the back hoses (have some towels ready) You may find something in one of the two pumps.
