Hi,
It sounds as if you have a screw loose !
No, really - I believe there is a screw, nail or other large object in the drum or near the filter that needs to be found and removed.
The small particles you describe are probably pieces of plastic from the drum or pump body that have been chipped off. If left untreated, can lead to a big hole and expensive replacement.

Please empty and strip the pump pipework to check for nails etc, and check in base of drum.

I have been out to several with a hole clean through the drum caused by nails.

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 )

LG frontloader WD-8013F Will not operate the spin cycle. The pump is working fine.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Although you say the pump is working fine, you do not mention the drain motor filter. I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

The water pump can be blocked and thus stop the machine from finishing the wash cycle. In front on the bottom there is as hatch that can be opened with a flat screwdriver, the small black rubber pipe can be used to first drain all the water before the opening the filter. Small objects such as coins coluld be found in here, blocking the pump. Clean the pump by removing these, optionally blowing into the outlet (yuck!), to dislodge anything. If that does not help to fix the problem, you can clean that actual water pump, but this requires you to use a screwdriver to remove the pump.

Tilt the machine on its side, the pump is attached with 3 self-tapping screws. (if you can't figure out what the pump is you should probably let a technician do this). The pump has 2 parts to it, take it apart carefully and clean out all the dirt that has accumulated in there. Plastic friendly, waterproof grease can be applied to the pump spindle and bearing if available.

If the problem still persists a new pump is available from LG at a reasonable cost.

OE Error


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..

Water pump failure?


The water pump drain motor has something stuck in it or it has gone bad like most LG parts.
Remove the drain pump and look for any foreign object to be removed.
Check the drain pump for a failed pump motor.
LG is pretty.

The crackling noise you're hearing is something is inside the drain pump and hitting the obstruction.  It's possible that the drain pump has been severely damaged to the point that the pump will have to be changed.  You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem.

check the pump filter and if necessary clean it up.
if you stop the programme and hold the start/ pause button for 3-5 sec the programme will cancelled and the drain will work.
if you hear a slow noise from the pump it may be blocked with external objects from your clouthes pocket,

so you need to contact a repairman.

You could simply have a blocked drain pump. Is there water still in the unit when the code LE comes on, if so simply remove obstruction (outlet filter) and try spinning unit. Click above on troubleshooting, and look for drain, filter, etc. You're bound to find something useful. And rate pl.
