I need to change the pump, it seems that it just pulls of as I cannot see any specific fixings. Can anyone tell me if all you need is brute force and ignorance to remove this from the housing, or am I missing a fixing somewhere? I am reluctant to use too much force as it is a plastic housing.

Re: Removal of drain pump
There are two clips underneath cabinet base. difficult to remove and difficult to replace. an alternative way but a bit fiddly, is to undo the 3 screws that hold pump to pump hosing - that is the way i always do it

Hi just read your posting.Now the only way to drain your machine if it is not draining is to do it by hand with a small pot or bucket. Do you hear a small click when you close the lid slowly?If you do then that is the lid switch.It will not drain if your lid switch is not activating.Did you wash a big load before the problem started?Also could be a faulty or jammed drain pump.I can guide you throe the removal of the pump to see if it is the problem if you have some tools available.Please reply after you have tested the lid switch and I can guide you throe the rest of the repair if needed.
I had the same problem, I changed the water discharge pump and the drain problem was fixed. I still have the loud sound during the wash cycle but it does not coincide with the drum movement. I think a will pull the wash pump to check for lint buildup. people cleaning the lint trap will avoid alot of unnecessary headaches.
yes its possable take the hose off of the bottom of the tub and feel up in there to see if you can find it and check the hose its self lots of times you can squeeze it and tell .If its under the tub that would explain it working sometimes and not others.as it would depend on the position of the obstruction when the unit goes into drain i can be more specific if i have the answer to my questions
I just fixed a similar problem on my Samsung WF337 The machine was making a grinding noise during a wash cycle. After entering 'service mode' (see the "Washing Machine Technical Information booklet that came with your machine) and testing the drain pump operation I determined that the pump was the source of the noise. Eventually I found that a nickel had worked it's way into the drain pump. The manual does not address how to access or clean the pump so I thought I would post instructions.
Unplug the machine and turn off the water supply.
Remove the silver back panel by taking out the two phillips head screws, pushing the panel up, then pulling out on the bottom.
Under the tub, you will see the pump with two hoses attached. The
black hose is the inlet from the tub and the white hose is the outlet
to the standpipe
Using a cup and/or a towel to catch excess water, remove the hoses by squeezing the spring clamps and sliding them aside (slip joint pliers make this easier) then pulling the hoses off of the fittings on the pump.
If you need to take to pump out: Remove the three bolts (12mm hex head). I used a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 6"extension.
Unplug the power connector from the pump.
You can now lift the pump assembly out of the machine and remove any obstructions. To get the coin out, I had to shake the pump a few times and reach in with my finger to dislodge it.
And as always installation is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to reconnect the power cable to the motor and turn the water supply back on.
I just had a similar problem. I broke down and had a repair man come out to take a look. He pulled off the front lower cover, took off the inlet hose on the water pump, and found my two year old daughters sock stuck in the turbine of the water pump. The motor runs both the drum and the pump, therfore it would not spin, and would not let the water drain.
Everything was fine until tonight. I'm having the same problem again. I pulled everything off just like my repair man did, but no sock. I think I might wind up pulling off the whole pump to check the otlet side.
If the pump is not draining, either the drain filter screen is clogged with debris, the drain pump is jammed by foreign debris or the drain pump itself has failed. More than likely something is clogged in the filter screen or a sock is jammed up inside the drain bellows tube just before the filter. Pull the drain filter screen out and look up the hole to see if there is any material stuck inside. Usually that's the problem.
does the water pour out when you put the drain hose close to the ground if it does then make sure your pump isnt blocked if it isnt then youll need to replace the pump most pumps have 3 little fins in them if you can stop those fins with a screw driver when pump is going then it deffinatley needs replacing as you cannot fix them sorry for the bad news m8
