Question about LG Washing Machines

1 Answer

The water comes in even when the machine is off.

I opened the back of the washing machine to clean the water inlet.  I unplugged the pipe, took things apart, cleaned and put them back together the best i could.  I replaced the pipe inlet and switched on the faucet, the water came into the machine, even when it was off.  Is this problem fixable?  How could I fix it? 
Thank you for  your help. :)

If water is entering when the machine is off, saounds as if the water inlet valve is notoperating correctly and you would need to replace it.. its where you screw you inlet hoses to the machine.

My machine will start all programmes but only run for less than 10 seconds and then do nothing else at all. I have cleaned the filter and checked all connections at the back.


If you open the Soap box when you turn it on, does water come out in it? If not, check the following:

1) Is the tap open
2) Remove the inlet hose, and clean the filter between it and the connection.
3) If still not working, open the Top Panel, and you'll see that the inlet hose pipe goes to a solenoid connected to the outer soap box. Remove this solenoid, and connect live power (usually 110V or 220v, depending which country you live in). You should hear a clicking sound. If not, replace the Solenoid Inlet valve (Cheap)

The reason why I am saying to check these things in particular is because the first process your Washing Machine will go through when starting, is to let water in. If it doesn't it will stop and hang.

If water does come out in the soap box, then let me know and we will ponder away more :-)

Kind Regards

Tip

LG Washing machine IE error code Solutions


An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes.

Are the water valves opened completely?

If an IE error code appears on the washer, check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.

Are the inlet hose filters clogged?

There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly.

Are the inlet hoses attached properly?

If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.

NOTE: The inlet filters are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. Because of their small size, take care when removing and cleaning the inlet filters so that they do not break.

It is real easy, take off the bottom panel and open the drain pipe. A lot of water will come out and some other things clogging the pipe. Removed it and reassembled everything. Works like there never was a problem. Thanks to Kenmore for making the drain pipe easy to open

The water inlet valve connects the hot and cold water lines from your home to the back of the washer. The solenoids on the valve open one or both valves to provide the proper water temperature for the wash cycle.

s are blocked or the solenoids do not activate, the symptoms may include no water, low water pressure, the wrong water temperature or water entering the tub even when the machine is off.
The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.
Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.
If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.There are two wires connected to each solenoid (aka coil) on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

There may be a screen in the inlet pipe where it joins the back of the machine. Also check that the inlet pipe is clear and running water correctly before connecting it back on the machine. If this is OK you may have an issue with the inlet valve not opening fully. This is quite a common issue and will need the inlet valve repalcing.

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water


hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

Washing machine leaking at the connection to water pipe.


Hi vks1,

Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?

Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off!
If the answer is YES!

This is a plumbing malfunction.
The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely!
There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.

And not a washer malfunction.


If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.

If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.

But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!

I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced!

Probably your inlet pipe is clogged, or not open sufficiently. Plug off the wall, turn off the inlet pipe, disconnect tube to check carefully if anything is blocking the fine screen on both sides of the pipe. Also check the machine screen where water comes to the machine. It is good to close the inlet valve after your washing is done.
