Use a putty knife to lift top. Insert between cabinet and top in front. There is one on the left and the right. Then the top should lift up and be able to at least get your clothes out.

SOURCE: LG WFT1081TP Top load washer

The fuse is located in a black cover.  You need to gently pull the front panel out of the way and look to the right of the unit, in the area under where the panel was.  There, you will see a black wire running into a black cylindrical case that has a black wire running out of the other end.  Heed the warning on the label, please, and make sure that the power is unplugged form the wall.  Gently pry open the casing and you will see the fuse within.  The ends of the wires just pull off (gently) and then you have the fuse.
Tomorrow I go on a fuse hunt and try this out.

SOURCE: My LG washer powers off completely after running

I had the same problem with my LG washer today. I found another post that said to hold down the start pause button 5 seconds, plug back in so you have power, run on drain/spin at highest spin speed. I did it and so far after each load it has not shut down.

I have an lg washer model # wt5001cw i have a code le overload protection how can i reset this code


The LE error or fault code indicates that the washer motor is either overheating or has lost connection to the motor control circuit board. Turn off the machine for 30 minutes to let the motor cool down. Then, restart the washer. If the code comes back immediately the motor is not likely to be at fault and so you should check the wiring from the motor to the motor control board. Also, check the wiring and condition of the rotor position sensor, also called a HALL sensor. If the code doesn't come back on immediately, but returns after the washer has run for a while, the motor stator may be defective.

My GE top load washer is about 5 months old. It fills up and runs through the agitation cycle but then stops at the end spin cycle. The clothes just sit in the water. I checked the hose for kinks and...


I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

LD WD1238C Door is Locked shut tried every trick you can think of including giving it a little kick


often on the upper grade washing machines, the components are a little more sophisticated. Possibly once you have removed the top lid, you will see the door latch from the back. some of the latches have a drawstring that you can pull which mechanically releases the door and opens. If you are able to before getting into stripping the wachine, gie it a quick cycle run and let it complete the cycle, Then try and open it. go from there.

My washing machine door is not opening at the end of a cycle. I put it onto another and it still won't at the end of that one. I've turned it off as well for 10 mins or so, and still nothing. Please help!


you didn't state whether it's a top or front loader. either way, there's a switch activated when the door is closed and washer is in cycle mode- so you can't open the door when a. the front loader has water in it, or b. the top loader is in agitate, or spin cycle. if top loader- there's a tab on the end opposite the hinge side that activates a switch that latches the cover closed when in 'dangerous' cycles (don't want to get your hand caught in the spin cycle!!). either a loose wire or a failed switch! prob. need to gently pop the top (should hinge back) to access the switch. UNPLUG THE WASHER!! if a a loose wire, re-attach-if not, replace switch! easy! good luck!

LG Tromm Washer


Wash empry with detergent and double bleach with extra hot water. When cycle is complete open the door to the washer and let airdry. When you close the door with it wet it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. You may also not be using the correct detergent or the correct amount of detergent.
