SOURCE: My washing stopped working mid cycle. I checked

the timer is probably sticking (needs replacement) or lid safety switch stuck open. try restarting the load and if stops at the same place it is the timer unit, if it fills up with water and than stops - lid switch.

LG WT5101HW - Machine won't turn on. Just plays the tune softly when pressing power button. Also, machine have not been draining properly lately. Turns off by itself mid-drain with DR error code.

DR is a drain error. Have a look to see if the drain filter is blocked (if fitted) or if there is an obstruction or blockage in the pump or drain hose. If it cant pump out, the machine will stop during the cycle.

Hot wash does not work

Check filter in hose at tap end, if if the hoses screw onto back of machine, check the filter inside valve. Check hot water valve, it may be burnt out.

I replaced the door seal on a Whirlpool duet ht washer and now it won't power up. I've checked all the connections and they appear to be tight. Any ideas?

I have one idea. Could the new door seal be preventing the latch interlock from functioning to allow the machine to start?

Lg top loader model wt5101hw will not drain checked drain line its good can i acess pump without taking machine apart? Anything else I can do is it possible to check pump to see if its clogged or damaged.


Exact model, same problem here. Purchased March 2011. I was also getting error code "OE". Sears repair came today, and the water pump impeller was jammed.

He took the drain hose off the back (Watch out, water drained all over from water outlet) and stuck his finger in the water outlet. By spinning the impeller backwards and then forwards, he was able to dislodge whatever was clogging it.

Repair would have been around $170.00 if it wasn't warranty repair.

Hope this helps.

My LG washing machine is dead. It is in my summer home and it worked before we left. The electric outlet is fine and the water supply ok. What could be wrong? Is there a fuse somewhere in the machine...

The control board is probably dead and there is no serviceable parts. There is a fuse in the board but it's encased in acrylic for moisture protection. You will have to order a replacement control board. Good luck.

LG Tromm washer powers on but turns off a second or two later. I don't see any error code since it turns off right awat. What can be the problem?

Try using another outlet. Connect an extension cord to another outlet away from the room you are in and see if that will resolve the issue. If it does, you will need to call an electrician to resolve the electrical outlet problem. If the machine continues to shut off, you will need to have the control board on the washer replaced.
Good luck

I've worked on similar models with all manner of problems. Try unplugging the machine from the electrical outlet for about 30 seconds then, plug it back in. This will "re-boot" the control board. If it doesn't work, I'd say the control board is bad.
