LG washer will not drain

Open the access door located on the lower left of the front panel. Use the small hose there to drain the water from the washer. Unscrew the knob next to it and pull out the attached filter. Clean out filter and re-assemble. If the filter was clear, replace the water pump motor.

OE = Drain Error • Not fully drained within 10 minutes.
Check and clean the pump filter. The access panel is located on the front, bottom left of the machine. Place a towel under the front of the pump filter access panel opening before opening to catch any water that may flow out.
Check drain hose on the back of the machine for any kinks or blockage.

HELLO, we washed clothes and the soap would not clear and the clothes were still water logged. Now in trying to fix it, it will not drain, Not sure what to do terri

Drain the water out by using the small hose located behind the access panel on the lower left side of the washer's front panel. After removing water, un-screw the big knob to the right of the hose and pull it out to check for blockage in the filter. If blockage found, remove and re-try cycle. If no blockage found in filter, replace pump motor.

I neet o replace drain pump on a LG wm1832cw model

its not easy, but you'll have to lay the washer on its back and take off the crate like bottom panel. Discontect all the hoses. Disconnect the electrical line going to the pump. If you can, try and seperate the pump motor from the housing by unscrewing two screws on the housing, which will seperate the motor from the housing, If you cant get to it, I actually broke the screws on the drain filter housing to get it loose. I secured it back with the other front loading screw and some gorilla glue, shouldnt be a problem. I should at least get another 6 years out of this pump. Good luck.

LG front load washer has a drain error message

Clean out the filter behind the small access door on the front lower left side of the machine. The small hose is there to drain the water out first. If there is nothing in the filter, you may need a new pump motor. (pump impeller comes off shaft sometimes, requiring pump motor replacement)

Drain hose

This hose can be removed from the rear by removing the access panel. Look to the left and you will see the drain coming down from the condensate duct. Follow it down to the drain assy. While you have it off, check in the opening for lint build up which can block the drain

Lg washer not draining

On a front loading LG there is an acess panel on the lower left of the front panel. Open that little door and use the small hose to drain out the water left in the machine. (as long as the hose is not plugged with sand) Now, unscrew the big thing next to the hose, which is a filter. Chances are there is something there blocking the flow of water to the pump. If it is clear and still no pump out, you will have to replace the pump motor. (possible impeller loose on motor shaft)
