Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a LG front load washer, and a shoe lace got stuck in the little holes on the back. The end of the shoe lace is made of some hard materials and it gets bend, so got stuck in the little hole. I have no idea how I could get it out and it keeps on making noises. I would appreciate if you could let me know how I could get it out. Thanks!

Ouch! I'm guessing that the shoe lace wrapped around the shaft from the inner tub and cannot be pulled back into the wash tub. That sucks, because the only way to get at it then would be to remove the motor rotor, sepperate the two halves of the outer tub, allowing the inner tub to be removed to access the offending shoe lace. If you know what you're doing, it's about a two hour job. My advice: Just live with the noise. Please don't bother rating this, as anything but a Fix-Ya drops my score.

My lg front load washer door wont open

Set the machine to END of cycle and leave it for 5 mins. Do this several times. Then try the door. It may be magnetically being held in or it could be mechanically stuck.

If no go.....Pay for that service will be worth it !

My WM1832CW front load machine consistently gives me the UE error code during the spin cycle regardless of the contents or size of the load. Its a direct drive system - so what could be the problem?

bad imbalance sensor. silly little contraption that sticks off the back of the drum. It is a plastic lever with a light sensor attached to the end. there is a hole and a bb that sits in the hole. when the load gets imbalanced, the bb gets knocked out of the hole and the light shines through the hole. the light sensor relays the error to the computer and it displays UE. I took the sensor apart, and put a piece of tape over the hole so the light cant shine through anymore. No more UE code. LG parts are very hard to find. I dont mess with them, but it was my neighbors machine. This will get them by until they can buy a new washer. good luck.

My new LG washer is making a lot of noise when spinning, are they all like that or there's a problem with my washer? Also do u know wher I could buy a cover for my front load washer and dryer? I need a...

Hello. The most common remark I hear from customers is that these new high capacity LG washers often make sounds more often associated with an airport. The good news is that they do an excellent job in a very "green" way, saving both power and water. If you have your machine in a space where you can close the door, do so. Otherwise, try to use it at times when the new sounds will be least bothersome. Joe

My LG washer shoes OE and I don't know what to do??

If I'm not mistaken this is a drain issue so check to make sure nothing has your drain hose kinked or clogged. There is also a drain filter that you need to check and clean if needed. There is a small door cover on the bottom fron of the washer. First pull the tube out a little and hold it over a container then remove the cap. This will drain the pump and when no more water comes out you can remove the drain filter by turning the cap thats next to the tube you just drained. Sometimes there is still a little water left so you may have to clean up a little but not much. Clean the filter if needed and you can also look in the pipe to see if any debris was left in the pipe. Place everything back and this should get you back to doing more laundry.

How to stack instructions

I just bought one of these, and the install is pretty simple. 
you have 3 pieces, 2 of them go on the sides, 1 goes across the front. 
you lay the side pieces on top of the washer so that the little tabe are sticking up,  the end that has 2 tabs and a hole for the screw goes at the back.  once they are laid in place, you put 1 screwn in each piece on the back of the washer (there are holes in the washer for this already) then you put the dryer on to so that the little tabs that stick up kind of hold the feet. 
you put the front bar on last so that it's tabs hold onto the front feet, then you screw both ends of the front bar into the side bars.

Detergent drawer will not open

Here's a possible solution: Remove the two screws on the bottom side of the plastic clips on the back of the washer (leaving the clips attached to the washer's top), then use the palms of your hands to sharply push the top back about an inch and a half and lift the top off the machine. Now, if you can see enough through the translucent plastic to tell where the hang up is, you can drill a small hole in the top of it to allow you to push that part down so the drawer will open. Then, use foil duct tape to seal the hole.

Holes in Shirts from LG Front Load Washer

This may sound weird but try using a slower spin speed.  The reason is because the faster the spin speed is, the more the clothes can get sucked through the holes in the drum.  On the other side of the drum that you don't see could be some metal points that can snag the material.  When you pull the clothes out, you will pull the thread that comes entangled with those metal points.

Water Leaks from beneath my washing machine

Our WM2077CW just started the water leaking from underneath. We unplugged the electrical cord and disconnected the hoses (water, drain). We then removed the inspection plate from the back and checked for wet hoses. The big black hose on the bottom was a little wet. On careful examination we found a small hole that looked like a material fatigue failure at the point where the accordion part of the hose met with the solid part of the hose near the main drum connection. I suspect this is may occur in other LG washers of the same design. Unless your floor is perfectly level it's hard to tell whether coming from the left or right side really indicates where underneath the water is coming from.
