Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
Thanks for the quick response with your solution to my washer (LG WM1832CW) 'UE' error issue. I understand it is a sensor issue and a quick fix would be to \'foam\' the drum to reduce the bounce of the drum.
I am not a expert mechanic. Can you describe in detail how i can add foam to the side of the drum? Is this something a novice like myself can fix or does it require hiring professional help?
This is fairly easy to do, although you need to find some suitable foam - two pieces about 8" square and probably 3" - 4" thick.
You will also need a suitable adhesive, which could be spray carpet adhesive, copydex, or silicone sealant.
Turn off and unplug the machine, "walking" it out slowly if it's under a counter. Do not strain the water hoses too much.
Undo the few screws along the top at the back that holds the lid on, then slide the lid back an inch and lift off.
There should be some foam buffers in there already - but may have fallen off. Retrieve them if they have, but fit your bigger ones instead to leave maybe a finger width gap each side of the drum.
Make sure any springs on the top you can see are ok while you're there.
Once fitted, refit the lid and screw back, then push back the machine from very low down - check hoses are not squashed, and the outlet hose is ok.
Turn on again.
