Could be problems with the waste pump which could be at the bottom of the machine behind a flap. The fact that if you give the machine a thump and it starts working, could indicate it has a loose wire which can be extremely dangerous as it could short out to the washing machine casing. Or the motor has simply got dirt around the comm. (internals on the motor). If you have been spinning unevenly balanced clothes and the machine has had a bit of a jump around, then it is likely to be a wire. I have repaired washing machines which have had this very problem where the drum has been bang bang bang in spin mode and actually rubbed right through to bare wire on badly placed wires which were not harnessed out of dangers way. Alway disconnect from mains first before looking....electricity kills, especially I the presence of water. Good luck

You probably have the drain hose too far down the standpipe and it is siphoning out. Check that first. If that doesn't work, look up Catriver, sounds like that cat knows his stuff. Tenbears.

SOURCE: I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out

If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

Why my washing machine won't spin? Lg fuzzy logic Turbo 8.5kg


Before the washer can start to spin it needs to drain the water from the drum. By you having to drain the water from the machine indicates that the drain operation is not happening. This in the majority of the cases is a bad drain motor.

I have LG fyzzy logic 6.5 kg WFS65AO1DCT and it keeps loading and draining water even when in spin


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine. Next is the drain hose is to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your homes plumbing. If the drain hose does not have an air gap aroung it, it can cause a siphon effect and start draining your machine as it fills. If none of these are the problem and your drain pump is running at the same time it is filling you will need to replace the control. For top load machines follow this video and for front load machines follow the tutorial.

My LG Fuzzy Logic 5.5kg WF-T552TH machine works fine on small loads, but if I put a large amount of washing it, just runs through water and never starts the wash cycle. Water just passes through.


This is a very common issue and simple to fix, the height of your drain hose is too low, it is siphoning the water out of the machine once the water level gets up near the level of the drain hose.
