WATER DOESN'T DRAIN

We are buying a condo and when I inspect the unit I found out the water stay in the tub and don’t drain. When I turn the knob to rinse I hear humming noise from the relay but the motor doesn't work. Do you think the motor is defective or something is stock in the pump and doesn’t let the pump to turn?
Thank you in advance for your help

Washer didnt drain all the way and now i keep gettin a code. n the light for the door lock wont come on


If water is in tub and the control tries to drain tub but water doesn't drain, then the unit will not operate. Most LG have a drain pump clean out located behind the access door on lower side of washer. Open the door and you will see a black tube with a cap and a round knob. First, get a bucket, pull the black tube slightly out and remove cap. The water in the tub will start to drain and you may have to fill bucket many times to get all water out. Next, unscrew knob and a little screen will pull out. Inspect this screen and inside of pump chamber. Your looking for any thing that could block the pump. If pump hums and still doesn't drain, the drain pump is more than likely bad. Good Luck

How do I fix water not staying in the wash tub of Twin tub, LG WP 750R?


If your drain is not high enough the water will siphon out while filling. Check your owner's manual for correct height, usually about 39 inches from ground

Doesn't drain out all the way water stays in


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

How do I drain the washer when it has water so I can see what the problem is


Place the end of the drain hose into a bucket or shallow basin to drain the water. Position the bucket or basin as low as possible to extract as much water from the tub. Completely drain water from the tub through the pump filter cavity. Remove the screws attaching the bottom of the bottom panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. Place a piece of towel under the pump filter then remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter and the opportunity to inspect the pump impeller for clogs and damage by reaching it in with your finger and turning it manually. The impeller should turn freely.

Will not spin water stays in and wont drain the tub wont spin and when you try to jiggle the knob it is derad on the spin cycle


Assuming you have agitation, the tube wont spin because the mechanism to spin is prohibited by one of these the clutch, the brake, or the pulley is not engaged as designed. They are all need to be inspected before jumping in to buy the parts for replacement. Good luck.
