Hello all. Occasionally I am having a problem with water remaining the drum of this washing machine at the end of the cycle. The clothes are quite wet and there is a small pool of water in the drum when the clothes are removed. This doesn't happen with every load--only sometimes. I have cleaned the drain pump reservoir (maybe a bit of lint in there) recently, but this didn't solve the problem.
Samsung WF419AAW/XAA draining problem
Posted 12 November 2013 - 04:07 PM
I had a Samsung that was a similar model that had a coin in the drain line that would sometimes clog the line and sometimes wouldn't. It took two trips out to find the problem. Check the whole drain line from the pump to the drain pipe.

Thanks--do I need to remove anything to get access to the pump outlet or just check the external tubing?

Remove the hose going from the pump to the drain pipe. There will be water. Have towel or pan ready. You will have to take the access panel off to get to pump. Be sure to unplug unit.

I have read other postings with a similar problem that their pump was failing under a load. In my case, I replaced the pump and then had to go back and found the coin in the drain line. If there is nothing in the pump or the sump it may have worked its way out, or it could be something between the tubs, or an intermittent pump. The latter is the hardest to solve. Hopefully you flushed out the problem.
I have also seen an obstruction in the drain pipe to cause this problem.
The only other thing to check would be a possible error code. If you had one, look it up and see what it says.

Thanks. From other posts, it looks like I should have checked all the drain lines and the elbow in the line from the drum to the pump. Guess I will have to pull the machine out again--fun! Seems like it might be difficult to remove the pump, but I am wondering if cleaning the check valve would help in case backflow is the problem.

I once found a guitar pic in the drain hose. It was wedged in so sometimes it would turn and block the water and sometimes it would turn and water would flow. Finally found it by taking the hose at the washer loose where it comes out of the tub and goes to the pump. Really just lucky that I found it. Gave me a big headach for a while. Good luck
