Gets stuck on timer and wont count down

We have an LG wm 1460fhd washing machine and it works fine untill it gets down to about 4 minutes and then it gets stuck, sometimes it might be about 8 minutes we can eventually get it to finish after a while by turning off or keep resetting the program.

We had a similar situation with our LG washer. It was not a timer problem.
The machine was not entering the spin cycle and was just stuck in limbo. A sensor or something was not being satisfied and allowing the progression to the next cycle. Our problem had to do with the drain line; it seemed as if it was air locked?? After lowering the drain line height (to reduce the head pressure), and manually draining some water out of the drainage cap (where the strainer is located) onto the floor, the sensor became satisfied and the machine completed its cycles properly.

What told me that it was not a timer issue was the fact that on different wash settings (normal, heavy, quick cycle), the machine timer would get stuck at different countdown points (22mins, 12mins, etc.).

My LG 2077 stops counting down at 10 minutes and stays there and then shuts off and says UE on every load. Can I replace the timer or is it another issue?


This washing machine is very sensitive to medium to large loads. Try doing a smaller load to see if the error code pops up. UE stans for unmalanced load. Good luck!

Lg washing machine wm-1460fhd door locked wont open


We have a WM-1480FHD, with the door stuck shut. It appears the door release mechanism in the actual door has broken, so when you pull the lver part, the catch is not released. You need to get a very flat knife,insert between the door and the front of the machine, right in the middle behind the release handle and push the hook towards the right side of the machine.Once open, you can check the release mechanism in the actual door. Ours is broken, so need to sort out how to repair/replace it next!

LG WD-324RHD stops at 6 minutes left in drying


Your timer has gone bad and you need to replace the time. Best bet is to get a Technician out there but you can do it yoursel. It is behind the face plate where it counts down the time

LG Intello wm-1460FHD stops spinning during the wash load.


OE is a drain error (indicating the machine has not drained out in under 10 minutes). If the drain pump is not coming on at all then you have a bad drain pump motor. If it is trying to drain then you may have a clogged up drain hose. The most likely cause is a bad drain pump motor. Hope this helps.

I have an LG washing machine, model WF-T1008TP. We have followed all the manual instructions but it has a timer that counts down and it is stuck in 52 minutes for more than a minute. What do I do next?


The timer shows approximate time remaining. The time displayed is continually adjusted due to factors such as how long it takes to fill, pump out, spin, etc.
Dryers are even more irratic due to load size, dampness levels, and cool down periods. This should be a Fix-Ya for your washer. It is working as designed.
