My Samsung machine is showing the SUD error code mid cycle.

Customer Question

Hi there!
My Samsung machine is showing the SUD error code mid cycle. I then press the start button, and it goes off again, until the rinse cycle comes on and then i get the LE error.
I have tried the following troubleshoot fixes: main power on then off, cleaned the debris filter, cleaned the rubber packing and drain area, ran a drum clean cycle (only to come up with LE error there too).
I have been using the emergency hose to complete the cycle.

Is there quite a bit of water remaining in the tub when you have to manually drain it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i manually drain it to keep the cycle going so i cant answer your question im sorry.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

If you don't manually drain it, though, it does not drain well enough for the cycle to continue?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
thats right. if i don manually drain it, the cycle stops and has the LE error code coming up.

Great, thank you! If you have cleaned the pump filter and the drain path is clear, then the pump will need to be replaced. The impeller is common to come loose from the motor shaft and not be able to pump the water well. The pump will need to be replaced.

what is the pump?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The part that drains the water that I linked you to.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
how is the pump accessed? can you please advise where the pump is on the machine?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The pump is attached to the part where the filter is that you cleaned out. The top comes off after removing screws along back edge, then the console with the controls in it will come off and unplug. Once that is off, the entire front panel will need to be removed.
