20 Most Recent LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer Questions & Answers


I have tried several different things for my stinky LG washing machine that I just bought September 2007, including "remedies" from the customer service at LG - nothing worked for me. FINALLY, I HAVE DISCOVERED A SOLUTION AND AM SOOOO THANKFUL! I removed the liquid detergent tray and sprinkled baking soda (probably 2-3 tablespoons) where powdered detergent goes, and ran a cycle with hot water, no clothes, no detergent. This got rid of the smell, but the very next time I did a load of clothes with detergent, the stinky smell came back. So I tried adding baking soda in the same manner with every load of laundry I did (underneath the liquid detergent tray) and it has worked!!! With every load of laundry, I remove the liquid detergent tray and sprinkle approximately a tablespoon of baking soda and then replace the tray and fill it as normal with my liquid detergent (whatever is on sale, the brand of detergent has not made a difference for me). This is ALL I do. No leaving the door open, cleaning the rubber seal, wiping anything out. I believe the smell is a result of stuff we can't see or even get to and that's why the baking soda works.
I hope this helps someone else.

A DE Error Code is indicative of a “Door Error”. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it. biigg53566

My guess is replace the drain pump. Inexpensive part but kinda hard to get to. Check out repair videos on parts sites or YouTube

Easiest start is to take the top off and check for leaks maybe using a flashlight. Top comes off by removing a couple of screws in back, the sliding it rearward about 3 inches and then lifting up. Good luck. Report back what you find. Use comments.

Switch to powdered detergent. You'll be much happier in the long run. Liquid detergent leaves a residue. Eventually the residue mildews. Powered detergent leaves no residue. Plus you will solve your current issue. Also skip the softener and use plain white vinegar in its place. The vinegar helps eliminate mildew and it also helps release Dey from your clothes in the rinse cycle.

Suggest try same again.
Modern appliances have a zillion circuit connections of which any one of them can develop a "bug".
Unless it is under warranty it's usually less trouble and cost to simply replace it.

"IE" is an error code that indicates a water inlet problem on an LG washing machine. This code will appear if the washer is not filled to the correct level within eight minutes after switching it on. Possible causes for the IE code include partially closed taps, improperly attached inlet hoses or clogged inlet hose filters.

Disconnect the LG front load washer power cord from the wall outlet. Turn off the water supply to the washer at the water spigots coming from the wall.

Pull the washer 3 feet away from the wall, and disconnect the water supply hoses from the water inlet valve ports on the back of the washer. You may need a pair of channel lock pliers to loosen the hose connections.

Remove the screws securing the back of the top panel to the back of the washer with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Depending upon your model, you will have either two or four screws to remove.

Lift the back of the top panel up, and slide the top panel toward the rear wall, which will unhook the top panel from the clips securing the panel in the front of the washer. Lift the top panel off the washer and out of your working area.

Your water supply may have a high sulphur content.

I tried a solution I found elsewhere - worked great. I had turned my drum enough to cause the display to turn on (a glitch in their program, I think), then I got the LE code on the next cycle.

Unplug for 10 minutes. Turn back on and press the Rinse & Spin button, then set Spin Speed to No Spin. Run this cycle, which should work fine. Afterwards, you should be able to run your machine as normal. If this doesn't work, replacing the Hall sensor would be the next step.

cheaper to check for a problem in the impeller first as the pump motor seldom fail but there are problems with items jamming the impeller

Replace the bad thermistor. Costs about $6. Not that hard to do. Check out repair videos at repairclinic.com. Or appliancepartspros.com

Did you check to see if the hot and cold are hooked up backwards? Try switching them.

The hose from the soap drawer to the tub may be split. These hose have flexible ridges and its common for them to split inside one of the ridges.
