SOURCE: Water won't drain from washing machine

the water or liquid you hear when you spin the drum is not from washing it's suppose to be there to balance the spinning of the drum.

SOURCE: LG WM1814CW - Water/soap Leaking Under Washing Machine onto Floor

Here is the answer !!! My LG front loader has leaked once a year for the past 4 years. The rubber bellows (a part underneath the washer) cracks and causes the leak. DO NOT LET THEM TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE USING TOO MUCH DETERGENT ... THAT JUST AN EXCUSE !!! The part costs around $12. Here's the link ...

SOURCE: LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

How do I stop the old water smell (earthy odor) in my LG front load washer?


All washers keep a certain amount of water in them, though front loaders, especially the newer ones, are prone to odors. This is because the are more energy efficient and use less water. That can result in more residue being left behind on the outside of the wash drum where you cannot see it or access it to clean. Some things that are helpful:
  1. Do not close the door of the washer after use. It will allow the interior to vent and dry out, reducing odors.
  2. Use only the recommended detergents, and in the amounts recommended. Many people use too much soap in HE washers. A tiny bit goes a long way.
  3. Use a front loading machine cleaner - they are sold in most grocery stores. These help clear the residue from the drum, reducing odors.

My front loader washing machine suddenly stop working at there is an LE sign


LG, the electronics and appliances conglomerate, manufactures a variety of high-efficiency washing machines. Whether you have a front- or top-loading model, your LG washer is equipped with an error-monitoring system. When the LE code appears in your display, it indicates a problem with the motor. The problem can be related to several different issues. In order to clear the error, determine which issue is at hand.
New Installation The LE error code may appear in an LG washer's display if installation issues exist. It indicates a miscommunication between the wash motor and the control panel. In most cases, you can simply reset the washer to solve the problem. Unplug your washer before pressing and holding the Start/Pause button for approximately five seconds. Plug it back in and set the washer to a rinse-spin cycle to see if the code has cleared. If the code reappears in the display, contact LG at the phone number in your owner's manual for assistance.
Thermal Overload Protection Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.
Excessive Suds If your washer detects excessive soap suds in the drum, the LE error code can appear. Typically, excessive sudsing occurs when you use too much high-efficiency detergent or a detergent that's not specifically high-efficiency detergent. Always follow the guidelines in your owner's manual and on the detergent label to determine what type of detergent, and how much, to use. To get rid of soap suds in the drum and clear the code, unplug your washer and let it sit for a half hour so the suds can dissolve. Plug the washing machine back in and turn it on, hitting the Spin Speed button and selecting "No Spin." Press the Start/Pause button to turn on a drain only cycle. When the cycle is completed, remove the load from the tub. Start a rinse-spin cycle to clear away any residue. You may need to repeat the cycle to remove all of the suds.
Load Issues The LE error code can appear in an LG washer's display due to certain load conditions. If you are washing a large load, don't choose a gentle cycle like Delicates, Hand Wash, Perm Press or Wool/Silk. Reserve them for smaller loads. To reset the washer, unplug it and press the Start/Pause button for five seconds before plugging it back in. The LE code can indicate that the washer has been overloaded; large loads and bulky items can strain the motor. Remove a few items from the washer to reduce the load size and restart the cycle. If the code appears again, let the washer sit for a half-hour so the motor has time to cool down before you restart the cycle.

LG front load washer leaves clothes soapy. Yes cleaned trap and drum and use correct HE detergent. What else can it be?


front load machines can be soo frustrating-try using less detergent-you might try running a sanitizing cycle with a quarter cup of dry dish washer soap-sounds like your rinse cycle isn't working do you have an option for a 2nd rinse cycle-cheers Denny

Rl on the control panel


The "rl" (remove load) error code appears when you are running the "Clean Washericon1.png" cycle. You must not have a load of clothes in the washer during this cycle. Remove the clothes from the drum, and restart the cycle. The "Sud" error indicates that the detergent is over-sudsing. The Duet washer automatically combats this by reducing the amount of suds in the washing machine. Let the washer finish the suds-reduction steps. Use less detergent during the next wash cycle.

Limited agitation during wash cycle Load Sense OK


Possible that the program selected is an easy wash as this is meant for daily wash , less soiled clothes.
If however the same situation is present in all the cycles then the capacitor to the motor must be checked as it can reduce the speed of the motor.
Also check the belt , check for friction on the drum spindle and the motor.

Code LE, will not finish the spin cycle


It's very important not only to use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount.
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect dosage instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged Hall Effect Sensor (on 2007 or older LG washers)

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

LE error code during wash cycle (washer full of soapy water). Washer does nothing now (no spin etc). Any ideas?


having the same problem - means load is too heavy so take stuff out then try to re-run it. I read some time ago that this eventually happens with front-loaders - they can't handle the weight - I had less than half a load in there and had to take stuff out. Time to have it serviced but still usuable with only a few pieces of cloathing.

WF740 Hotpoint washing machine with bad smell from drum. Tried 95 degree wash but still smells. Door seal slightly blackened but I think smell is from drum too. Any help?


Wash it out with a strong solution of washing soda placed into the drum before you fill the machine


Ps

Run the machine empty through a full hot cycle then run the soda one

The first will soften the deposits and the second should help kill the bacteria that is causing the smell.

Reducing the load so that there is more agitation helps as well
