Check to make sure that the filters in the water valves are not clogged up.  Go behind the machine, turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses on the machine side.  Look inside the water valves and check the filter screens to make sure they're clean.  Get a large bucket and open the water valve to clear out the hoses and make sure you have good water flow coming out of the hoses.  If both of those situations are cleared up, your machine should work properly.

SOURCE: The lights on my LG WM2016CW will not come on.

While looking for the fuse, which I could not find despite opening up the machine from the back (and vacuuming underneath--yuck!), I left the washer unplugged for about 30 min. From reading other forums and such, I realized that unplugging for a little while is often the solution because the prolonged (at least 5 min) lack of power triggers the system to reset. Sure enough, when I went back to plug it in and give up for the night, the thing worked fine. Good luck to anyone else out there!

SOURCE: I have a LG WM2016CW washing machine and there is

You said "stuck" in the drum somewhere? Like under the agitator vanes? You should be able to take the lid off the agitator, it should either clip in or have a screw holding it on, and there you will see the nut, or keeper that holds the agitator on the motor shaft. Remove that clip or nut and you can lift the agitator out of the washer. From there you will see all of the wash drum and should be able to remove any foreign objects. If these "coins" are between the inner and outer tub, then you will have to remove both the top cover and lid, and remove the agitator and the inner drum to get to the outer drum in order to reach these objects. Not a hard job, but it will take you a little while. You could try reaching with your fingers around the agitator bottom and see if you can "feel" the coins or objects and possible use a small brush or stick or popsicle stick to move them out so that you can reach them, Kinda like "fishing" under the refrigerator or the couch. In the alternative, you could enlist four friends and unhook the washer from the water supply and the electric, and turn it upside down and try to shake the coins or objects out the top of the drum. Tilting the machine to one side will let them fall to the cabinet sides and possibly drop out the bottom when it is uprighted. Now I know why Mom always "checked" my pockets before she washed Dad and my clothes. We left a little of everything in there, from time to time. Good Luck with this.

SOURCE: my washer won,t drain how hard is it to replace

Open the little door in the bottom left hand corner, unscrew the black cap and drain the water out.
If this doesn't fix the problem, you may need a new Drain pump. Unplug the machine. Remove the filter recess by removing the one screw inside and using a putty knife at the left and / or right edge and popping it out. Pull the machine out about 18 inches and tip it back, resting it against the wall. Remove two more screws behind where the recess was holding the pump housing on. Reach under the machine and remove pump. There is a tab to depress under the pump housing to release it from the base. The pump motor is held onto the housing by three screws. Remove them and inspect the impeller to see if it has come off the shaft. If it has, pushing it back on will not solve the problem, as it will come off again. Install new drain pump and reassemble.

How do I fix a loose or locked up drum that generates LE errors?

you sure it is not and upside down 'F' instead of an L? that would be a hall sensor(motor position sensor) error. easy fix. check out or for both parts and videos that show how to repair. very easy with common tools. about 20-30 minutes. basically take back cover off, remove motor cover, remove stator, replace part.

Hi if you remove the pump again get a plug and wires example from a table lamp and attach 2 wires to the pump dont worry about polarity it will run both ways plug into the wall see if the pump runs out of the machine ( does this model have 2 pumps one could be the recirculation pump)

How do you fix the rear tub spindle on an lg wm2016cw?

If its the main drum bearings gone then this will entail a complete strip to access them. The parts are available online, just have your serial no, model etc ready and trawl through various web appliance sites to find the best price. You will need a fair amount of mechanical / DIY knowledge to carry out this task. There are lots of parts and electrical connections.

LE errors mean the motor is locking up and cannot turn the drum. If the drum turns freely by hand then it could be
If that is not the problem then the motor needs replaced.
