Question about LG WM3988HWA Front Load Washer / Dryer
This is a combo Washer/Dryer Unit and in Drying mode, it starts by spinning, which is typical. The time will shows around 3 hours with Normal setting. However, I can see cold water line being tripped periodically and cold water entering into the tub! I reset this 3 times and got similar issues, although once it added so much water the cycle finished on its own prematurely with the clothes totally soaked and saturated. To work around this I completely turned off the cold water valve. There are no codes. It seems there may be a software glitch somewhere? I've had the unit for only a month and this just started happening.
Replace the 5 way valve. get the old flow restrictor out of the drying cold water line before reconnecting. It came out of the valve to cause the problem.

The water valve is going bad, I just turn the cold water on very little and it works fine. Been waiting for over a month for the service tech to replace but get calls about what it is and what they are going to do.
