Easiest way is to use a putty knife on the left and right side of the lower left access panel on front of the machine to remove the rectangular inset. (might have to remove a screw first) Next, pull machine out about 18 inches from the wall and tilt it back so you will be able to reach under machine. Next, remove the phillips screws you can see now that the plastic recess has been removed (not the two at the very bottom, the other ones). Reach under machine and remove pump assembly, which is held in place with a plastic tab on the bottom. If you break the tab, don't worry, it's not really needed as the screws will hold the pump assemble in place just fine. You should now be able to disconnect the electric wire plug and remove the hoses clamped onto the pump. Pump motor is a separate replaceable part.

I have LG Washing Machine and the water does not drain whilst the machine is washing. What can be wrong?


problem is with main board MOSFET ,FET or Transistor , that are not switching your drain pump at right time , if your'e pump is fine, , you should check drain pump separately by giving it separate supply. ( see its data sheet for power )

My front loader washer had a sock inside the hose and the water backed up , and water was everywhere. is this common


It happens with many brands. Coins are commonly found in the pump traps in most washers. I don't know if LG washers are more prone to eating socks, but if you try Google with 'lg washer sock', you will see that you are definitely not alone.

I hope it doesn't happen again.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.

Lg front loader not drainig, error code comes up.


Humming usually means that the motor is being physically prevented from spinning. Check that there isn't a small coin or similar jammed in the impeller blades...The motors on those pumps also can collect debris INSIDE the pump motor behind the impeller seal..That would require a new pump motor. Check impeller first!....Good luck.....Nomess

My lg front loader steam washer is not draining water, error code OE. has pump gone out?


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..
