Question about Washing Machines

I have a Samsung J1045AV washing maching. The washing maching will not finish its spin cycle as the water isn't being drained. 5E keeps on being displayed. There is a coin stuck in the drainage pipe just before the debis filter. I can not reach the the coin to remove it. How do i remove the front panel to get access to the drainage pipe?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(The panel is often held in place by visible plastic screws, screws covered by caps or the panel simply pulls off.)

Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!
John C

My top loader washing machine shows SE. Please assist.


Hi!
I has the same 5E mistake with my Samsung washing mashine.
5E looks like SE on the screen, but it is 5E.

This is what the manual says:
5E - Your washer is not draining. It can
also mean that the unit senses a
small clog while draining

Do the following:
1) Turn off the unit and turn it on again.
2) Select only the Spin Cycle.
3) Press the Start/Pause to drain the water.
If it still does not drain, call for service.

Wat is the SE or 5E stand for on the Samsung washer and dryer combo


The 5E code indicates a water drainage problem.
Check the pump filter for blockage and debris.
Check the drain hose and waste connection for kinks and blockage
After everything checks out, select the spin cycle to drain water

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.
