Motor will cost you $75, and about an hour to replace it. Check out YouTube, plenty of videos on how to do it. Did it yesterday,nothing difficult.

Why won't my LG washing machine pump out water?


If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump

I need to force my lg tromm to drain


My LG Tromm washer has a small door on the bottom left hand side on the front of the washer. Open the door and you will find the drain filter and a stoppered, small rubber tube. Position something to capture the washer water under the small rubber tube and pull the plug.. This will drain all the water from the washer.

Washer wont drain showin IE


Sonia, you either have a failed drain pump, or something has bypassed the filter ( bobby pins are notorious for this ) and is jamming up the pump impeller. If you can set the washer to drain/spin and can hear the pump running, you most likely have a impeller that has broken off of the pump motor shaft and will need to be replaced. If you cannot hear the pump running, and can hear a slight humming noise, then there is something jammed in the pump. The pump can be removed and cleared of the possible foriegn object. I can provide instructions on pump removal if needed.

Washer wont drain displays OE. Pump makes a vibrating sound lie it is plugged already checked filter cleaned it removed hose how do you replace the pump?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. If the issue returns then yes you should replace the pump, please check this repair manual on how to replace the pump. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Check inside the filter housing with a flashlite for debris that got around the filter. If it is clean, you have a bad pump and it needs to be replaced.

My LG Tromm front load washing machine gives me an OE error. Referring to a drain problem. What should I be looking for/


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Tromm washer full of water


You have a jammed drain pump and will require the pump to be removed and cleaned out.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this problem.
