Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

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

I've moved into a new apartment, with this washer/dryer combo.  The problem I am having is that on a normal cycle it will be drying and once it hits the "6 minutes left" in the count-down, it freezes.
What I mean is that it keeps drying...but stops counting.  Stuck eternally at "6 minutes left".  So I have to cut it off, and put it through a spin cycle just to get my clothes back!
How do I get it to stop freezing at 6 minutes??

    Well, this is a washer/dryer combo.  It washes and dries in the same unit; same drum.  It is as if a washer and dryer had a baby, this is what it would be!


    My problem is that the timer counting down on the drying time stops at 6 minutes.  So when I cut it off then cut it back on, it won't open the door because it thinks it needs to finish drying/cycling/whatever (a feature of the machine).  The only way I can get it to open is to start a spin cycle (again, since this is a washer/dryer combo it's all in the same place).  It spins for 7 minutes, finishes, and lets me open the door.


    I don't have a problem with the washing timer, or the spin cycle timer- it's just when it's counting down on the drying time does it freeze.  Which is really confusing, since it's the SAME TIMER, it counts down on everything- yet it freezes on drying time?


    Does that help clarify my problem at all...?

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

WD 9900 does not dry


Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element.
I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced.
Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this.
Be blessed.

My aged invalid mother has a front loading LG washer dryer combo and has washed the same garment 3 times and after wash cycle or drying cycle can't seem to get the door to open to remove the clothes. What...


Hi I hope you solved this by now but I thought an answer might be useful if anyone else has the same question. I am not an expert just an owner of a LG WD-1412RD. It sounds like your mum is not aware this is just the normal safety cool down period following drying (as the stainless steel interior gets very hot during drying). The Door lock sign (small red light) is on, and the display shows Cd during this time, then it beeps and the door unlocks by itself. If you need to remove your laundry earlier than this, you can press the START/PAUSE button to end the cycle (it still takes a couple of minutes). This is covered on p 21 - 22 of the owners manual. which can be downloaded from the LG site. http://www.lg.com/au/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WD-1412RD&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WD-1412RD&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#

I have a similar problem with my LG WD-3245RHD. I had a repairman come out to look at it and he said I needed a new circuit/control board. I have not been able to locate this replacement part to date. RepairClinic.com has one listed, but it is not in stock.

My Lg WD-3274RHD after a load is complete It fills with water again? If left ovder night water will run out the door.


I have same problem with my washer/dryer combo.It took me quite some time to figure out what is going on.Did all electrical checks ,everything was fine and worst thing it was intermittent thing ,it would do it 8 out of 10 times. Found cold water inlet valve assembly to be faulty (mechanical problem with middle valve) . Second time in 6 years ,other than that I'm very happy with that combo.Problem now is to get new valve, because it is not available anymore from LG, so I'm digging through internet to see if anybody has it somewhere. Good luck

. I have a LG WD12126RD front load washer dryer


This is a heater error. The heater element is open and not working. This is usually the problem but it could be other things also. You need a service call from an LG tech.

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

Prolem drying clothes


I just contacted Samsung Tech Support for my wash/dryer combo WD-J1255C.
The reply.."it is not a full dryer ...and it is not sold as a full drier.. and don't expect it to be completely dry". I queried why it is advertised as a dryer and got the same reply.
Its a great washer but why did I pay extra for the dryer combo?

FAULT CODE


AI got here after googling the same problem.
There are many reports of this "dHE" error - all with BRAND NEW MACHINES !

I rang LG in Sydney, Australia today and amazingly the girl on the phone said there are no known issues with this dryer
(In Australia the combo dryer is known as WD14700RD ) - 7kg washer / 4kg dryer.
Mine has same problem. Whenever the dryer is selected in the program, it stops after the wash phase and flashed dHE (or dHe, can't remember) and thats as far as it gets.

Its a tech, call out tomorrow to try & fix it.
Very poor LG, these are brand new machines, many reports of this problem from googling it but LG have no knowledge a problem.

This may end up being a recall or at the very least, some public announcement of this dHe problem with this washer.
New buyers beware ... It is a fault with brand new machines.
