There are two connectors that attach to your drain pump, a black and a brown. They attach to the metal contact on the pump, it doesn't matter which one goes where, they are interchangeable.

When you put the front panel on, there is a door switch connector you need to attach before you put the screws back to hold it in place. After, the connectors on as you attach the top display portion of the washer. They are color coded, put the back into where the connector match with the size and colors on the main board.

Afterward, you can put everything back together and test the washer. Everything should light up and turn back on as normal before. Do not forget to put the particle filter trap back into the pump after everything is together on the bottom left corner of the washer or else it will leak lots of water when you do a wash.

Do I have to take apart the whole machine to fix the drain pump on my LG WM3455HW washer/dryer combo? I can't seem to find any instructions on this model.

Lucky You. The newer models of LG Combo units WM34xx have the filter on the right hand side and the pump can be changed through the bottom panel.

Will not drain pumps little water

Hello,remove the lower front panel....screws to remove are #19 and the panel #18 will drop down a bit and forward to come off.
sometimes coins,zippers,lint,bra under wires will get caught/jammed in the drain pump assembly and stop it from running/working.The hoses can be removed from the pump to check for any foreign objects or the
pump (the part where the pink and white wires are) can be totally removed by unclipping the wire harness and removing the two "5/6" bolts to check the pump assembly itself,The pump can be taken apart to check inside....if needed.The pump assembly is in the front right corner......

My washer does not drain the water, it is a front load washer. I have checked the pump already.

Noises - the original pump was a 40 watt pump, it often made a "howling" like noise. Replace the pump...the newer 80 watt pump has been more reliable.
Not draining - Front load washers are very bad for getting "junk" into the pumps...buttons, nails, zippers, bra wires....remove power and the front panel to access the drain pump assembly.
Remove power first! The pump is very easy to remove, ( unlocks from the base ) take the pump apart and check for foreign objects inside the pump assy. The power wires pull off and matters not which way they go back on. Also check the hoses to and from the drain pump for any  foreign objects. The pump is usually at the back right side ( looking at the washer from the front ).
