SOURCE: LG WASHING MACHINE WM14225FD

My machine would not switch on this morning, no beeps or lights, I traced it to a small fuse on the main circuit board. you get to the board by disconecting from the mains, removing 2 crosshead screws at the back of the machine and lifting the top of the machine off ( once screws out, slide top of machine back about 1cm and then it just lifts off. You can now see the main circuit board, behind the control panel on front of machine. the fuse is hard to see and is solderd to the board on the lower left side, I solderd onto both ends of the fuseand replaced with a 10 amp HRC fuse, I still need to find the correct fuse rating, this worked for my machine.
However, and its a big however, If the 13amp fuse in youre plug blew and the trip on youre consumer unit, then I would imagine something big (pulling a large current) has gone down in youre machine to cause all these to blow, anyway hope this helps, Robin.

SOURCE: LE error coming up

Hi there,

Here is text of very helpful email from LG 

When you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20 
minutes. This will reset the microprocessor. 

The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues. 

The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Many times owners 
experiencing the LE error code are using regular detergent. It is recommended to 
use a high efficiency or low sudsing detergent. Many of the leading detergent 
manufacturers have a high-efficiency (HE) selection. The HE detergents are 
designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in 
front-loading washers. 

Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. A 
good rule is to load the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than 
three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them 
sufficient room for tumbling. The clothing having sufficient room to tumble is 
more important than either the weight or the number of items in the washer. It 
is the tumbling action that provides the washing effect. 

Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may 
cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball 
sensor, or if the shipping bolts are removed prior to situating the washer. . In 
this case, a servicer would need to take a look at the unit. In this case, you 
will need a service center to look at your unit. For service assistance, please 
visit our website at us.lgservice.com Click on "Service Center". Enter your 
zipcode and product type. Click search. 

In the event that you cannot find a service center, please call 1-800-243-0000 
for assistance. There, an agent will be able to provide you with an Authorized 
LG Service Center in your area. 

Please have your model and serial number available along with your zip code when 
you call. If you have a customer service issue, please let the agent know and 
they will set up a customer service file for you. If your unit is under the 
factory warranty, your purchase receipt will validate the warranty. 

Business hours are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

I have taken the liberty of providing some hints and additional information that 
may be helpful concerning your LG washer. 

If you must use a regular detergent, you will only need to use 1/2-1/3 the 
amount you would normally use in a conventional top-loading machine. However, 
the HE and the conventional detergents are different formulae, and your machine 
will not perform as efficiently or effectively. Using half the required amount 
of regular detergent will 
give half the cleaning performance. As the new LG washers accept a larger than 
usual load, the cleaning performance could be further reduced. In addition to 
the reduced cleaning, there will be oversudsing. The excess suds will cause the 
washer to stop and rid itself of the suds before continuing its cycle. Getting 
rid of the detergent will further reduce cleaning performance. 

Using too much detergent can cause a build-up on the outer drum over time, which 
can result in mold and even mildew growth in your washer. Should this occur, do 
a load of whites on the SANITARY cycle. Use the extra rinse and stain options. 
Use NO detergent and use a liquid bleach. This will remove the build-up and any 
odors accompanying it. This procedure may need to be repeated a couple of times 
depending on the degree of build-up. 

The washing time may vary by the amount of laundry, water pressure, water 
temperature, and other using conditions. 

The 'SenseClean Washing System' has a built-in turbidity sensor that measures 
the detergent/suds residue in the water during the rinse and then makes an 
adjustment of time and water usage based on the detected residue level. 

The machine will detect an imbalance and attempt to correct it. If the imbalance 
is detected or if the suds removing program operates, the wash time will be 
increased. 

A built-in water heater in the washer assures that incoming water is the correct 
temperature to optimize cleaning performance. Most laundry detergents must be 
activated at certain temperatures to work correctly. We use thermisters 
(electronic thermostats that have a high degree of accuracy) to detect incoming 
water temperatures. Our 1000-watt heater adjusts the incoming water to ensure 
superior thermal action performance. 

You won't see a "visible" water level in the window of the unit. The water is 
pooled in the inner drum. RollerJets are built into the baffles of the washer. 
The holes in the baffle collect water and re-circulate it during the wash. This 
increases the mechanical action to achieve best cleaning performance. The 
rollers gently move fabrics 
along in the wash cycle. 

This action aids in reducing the amount of water required for thorough 
cleansing. In contrast with a top-loading machine, which always fills the 
machine to a precise measured level of water, depending on the size of load you 
select (small, medium, large), the LG machine will "sense" the size of the load 
and only recirculate a minimal amount of water, thus making it very energy 
efficient, efficient in the use of detergents, and extremely efficient in its 
water usage. 

Forced Water Circulation in the washer pumps water during the wash. It 
recirculates it back up and over the laundry to further increase mechanical 
action and cleaning performance. 

With front loading washers, the door seals so very tightly unlike a conventional 
machine, that it is recommended to dry the seal when you are done with your 
laundry for the day to prevent an atmosphere where mold and mildew can grow. 

To get the best results, sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the 
same wash cycle. Different fabrics need to be washed in different ways. Always 
sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint 
transfer can occur causing discoloration of white clothing. If possible, do not 
wash heavily soiled items with lightly soiled ones. 

Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items 
should not be more than half the total wash load. Do not wash single items. This 
may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.

Hope This help
Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: LG Washing machine - WM14225FD. Error LE showing

I'm sorry I only have service info on US market models, but this info might help.

LE codes are extensively covered in past Fix-Ya solutions, but are generally caused by only a handful of things. 1. the " Load Error " can be a very off balanced load. 2. excessive use of soap leads to too much suds, and thus drag on the inner tub. (use 1 tablespoon of HE soap max. per load) or 3. the Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty. Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!

SOURCE: how do i fit a

Hello,

The lid switch of the LG washing machine close the electrical circuits allow the components to work properly. When the lid switch is defective the washer will not spin or agitate.

Once you know how to replace a lid switch for a LG washing machine you can save money and replace it yourself. The cabinet of the washing machine will have to be removed.

Fortunately this can be accomplished quickly and the lid switch can be accessed.


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips head screwdriver,Flathead screwdriver,Replacement lid switc.
  1. 1 Unplug the LG washing machine from the wall outlet.
  2. 2 Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two screws that secure the control console to the top of the washer. Flip the control console back and allow it to rest in the service position.
  3. 3 Insert a flathead screwdriver into the rear mounting clips located on the rear top corners. Press in and the pull back to release the clips from the top panel.
  4. 4 Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness located on the top rear of the LG washer. Press in on the plastic tab and pull the wiring harness apart.
  5. 5 Open the washer lid and tilt the rear of the cabinet up toward you. Lift the cabinet to release it from the bottom tabs. Move it away from the washer base. Keep the washer lid open to access the mounting screws for the lid switch.
  6. 6 Pull the wires away from the clips under the top panel. Unhook the connector from the washer cabinet.
  7. 7 Use a screwdriver to remove the two screws that mount the switch to the inside of the washer. Pull the lid switch away from the washer. Insert a screwdriver between the lid switch actuator and the lid. Turn the blade of the screwdriver to pop the actuator off of the lid.
  8. 8 Insert the new plastic actuator into the lid. Press it in until it locks in place.
  9. 9 Position the new lid switch in place. Secure it with the two attaching screws. Make sure the lid switch wire is fastened into the cabinet clips and the connector is in place at the rear top of the washer cabinet.
  10. 10 Reinstall the LG washer cabinet back over the washer base and tub. Press the brass clips into place that hold the washer cabinet and rear panel together. Connect the wire harness from the control panel to the lid switch by pressing it in until it locks in place.
  11. 11 Flip the control console back onto the top of the washer. Secure it with the two attaching screws. Be careful when tightening down to avoid cracking the plastic trim.
  12. 12 Plug the LG washing machine back into the wall outlet.
Hope this help?

Thanks for using fixya.

Are you saying you have a "DE" code? If so, this simply means that the washer is unbalanced. Open the door, shift the items inside and try to reset it.

LG WM14225fd will not spin and le code


The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code.
(Load Error) can be an unbalanced load. Or, excessive use of soap causing too much suds, which can drag on the inner tub. Add only 1 tablespoon of HE soap max. per load.
Or maybe your Hall sensor died the part number is 6501KW2001A

Lg intellowasher DD 7.5kg WM14225FD error code OE


I think your "OE" is really a "DE" or drain error. Open the access door on the lower left of the front panel on the machine, drain the remaining water with the small drain hose there, and unscrew and remove the larger thing, which is a filter. Clean filter. If filter was not blocked, check for loose impeller on drain pump motor, which requires replacement of drain pump motor. (just sticking it back on will result in it coming off again)
If this helps, a "fixya" rating would be appreciated. Thanks.
