I suspect the drain pump has finally died. We have had the E04 code intermittently for a year but were able to get around it by starting the cycle over. I have opened the little circle plate on the front and cleaned out the trap a couple of times, but it always looks very clean. During the wash when it gets to the drain cycle you can hear a slight hum but no water ever gets pumped out. I can attach the shop vac to the drain hose and suck all the water out so I don't believe there is a clog. Am I missing anything before I order a new drain pump? Also I would really like a service manual so I can see how to replace the pump. Thanks in advance. Great website by the way.

E:04 points to a problem in the door control. Have you put in into diagnostic mode, yet?

My owners manual indicates E04 is a problem with the drain being clogged.

Well, let's go with that.

Pull the drain hose off the pump, pucker up and blow like a fish. Should clear an initial slug of water and then blow free, as free as the wind blows...

Let us know.

Nice compilation of the apparent discrepancies between the owner's manual and the service manual, Reg. Domo!

Update: Replaced the drain pump, takes about 1.5-2hrs total time. Have washed about 10 loads, no trouble so far. :thumbsup:
