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 )

My front windshield wiper pump does not pump washer fluid but the wipers work fine , the back wiper and pump works


First make sure you have water in washer reservoir, with ignition on reds (not started) then get someone to operate washer while bonnet is closed otherwise the wipers (may come on) may damage your bonnet (would also be a good idea to throw some water on your screen before commencing), listen for a buzzing noise, if you can hear that noise than your washer motor is ok, if not - if fitted with fuse check it and if fuse is ok than your motor needs attention. If motor is ok than while someone is operating the washer motor look under the car to see if there is any water leaking, if there is water leaking than the hose going from your washer bottle to your washer nozzles has come off somewhere, visually check this hose, usually small diameter and clear in colour, reconnect or replace it. If there is no water leak and you have full water and motor is working, than your nozzle, usually located on the bonnet or wiper arms are blocked, this mainly happens after polishing the vehicle. There are 2 main ways of cleaning these nozzles, easiest way is to get a fine pin and poke it several times, this will clean it 85% of the time, if it does not work than you need to find the hose that connects to it and pull apart at a join, closer to the nozzle the better, and give it short burst of compressed air, have to be careful not to pop the hose out at the nozzle as some of them are located in really awkard points, hope this helps.

LG Intellowasher (Model WD-1023C)


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 saw in not pumping water


I have came across to possible solutions with other tile saws in the past. One is that your pump could have picked up a small piece of tile or sedement from the basin and got stuck in the water port where it comes out on to the blade. The first thing I would try is to disconnect the hose frome the blade shroud while saw is off. **** on the end of the hose until you get water. Sometimes the line needs to be primed and filled with water. Once you get water you can turn the pump or saw on while disconnected to see if water flows. Keep loose hoses away from blade though! If nothing then try the blocked port. Good luck

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.
