    My LG front loading washing machine just keeps running and running with 1 minute left. After opening the door everything is sopping wet and I finally realized the spin cycle is not working.

I had the same problem. I found a water leak on the water valves at the back on the unit. This leak dripped on a wire that lead back to the ball sensor. The water was causing the computer to interpret a "unbalanced error". I suggest that the valves have a design defect that caused them to start leaking. After I discovered that my local appliance parts stores is NOT allowed to carry LG parts. I was very upset. I removed the ALL of the valves, cleaned them and applied a thin coating of silicon around the plastic solenoid shell, reassembled and I have no more leaks. I also cleaned the "ball" sensor to get rid on any moisture. Afterwards my wife was able to do 8 loads and me twice.

Washer wont drain lg tromm frontloading washer


You need to isolate the drain pump and check the voltage at the time of the drain cycle. If no voltage is present then you need to check on the control board as it can be a failure of the drive.
If voltage is present but there is no drain action then the valve pump is stuck, choked or faulty.
remove and check: click on : Drain.

Our whirlpool sport will not drain, 5d code has appeared. what can we do


SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE)

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
Possible Causes/Procedure
• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent,
• This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Your problem is either in the control board or the water level switch.  The computer can't tell if the water has drained or the control board is stuck in the 8 minute drain cycle.  Recommend pulling the plug and wait 5 minutes to reset the computer.  If the problem persists, it will require an LG experienced tech to see what's going on.
