Your Drain Pump is not draining, so the water stays and the machine stops! Or there is a clogged/kinked drain line. Could be that sock your missing! Really. Check the Filter. It is in the Owners Manual on how too and have a towel-bucket ready for the water! Also, unplug the machine first so you don't get a surprising start or Shock!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the information. I have tried all of that. I can see a trickle of water coming out of the back drain hose. The machine does not look like it is getting any water in the drum. When I drained it, there was less than 2 cups of water."

SOURCE: My lg Tromm front load

these units have had alot of problems especially if it is on a pedistal ...they won't admit this is a problem but i have been a lg servicer for over 4 years now and see it everyday ...the unit has a stator on the rear of the tub and on the stator is a device called a hall sensor that goes bad very often... it is what controls the spped and balance of the tub..if the load starts getting unbalanced the hall sensor will tell the motor controller to slow the speed down... most likely this is your problem.... good luck please vote

SOURCE: my washer shows UE code

UE code is an "unbalance error". Believe it or not, it is possible to unbalance a front load style washing machine. Usually caused by trying to wash smaller loads where the drum spins to try to distribute the weight evenly. With less laundry, you cannot distribute enough weight evenly around the drum and sometimes will cause an unbalanced load. If your problem is not a simple loading issue, it could be the balance sensor, loose wiring, or possibly the main control board. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hi I have an LG washing

Error code UE means unbalanced load. This can be caused by not enough washing in the drum. I just added more washing and it worked!

SOURCE: ue error during spin mode (b4 spin up happens) empty. wm3677hw

An UE Error Code is indicative of a “Unbalanced Error”. This indicates that the drum is not spinning in a smooth rotation. It may be necessary to rearrange the load in the drum. Also you have mentioned that the drum with full load has no such problem. It means that the drum cannot manage its weight in that position. So the problem might b adjustable easily. Try to remove the top panel and check for any slight movement in the position of the drum. Leaving it continue this way might increase the probability for the error to be repeated with the load. Will add some links related to internal diagrams of this model when i find some that might help you to check the drum inside.


Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution and post comments and results.

How can I correct UE error?


I guess you got a Korean washing machine

Ue code is called unbalanced error during spin

Do this if you know what you are doing

Check washing machine if it's fixed well on the floor
Check clothes in drum if they are moved to one place.
Make sure there's no excess foam in the drum
Now if all above are ok then
Set to rinse + spin program and start it
And wait
If it doesn't go to spin speed and you hear a loud knoking noise then u should call service centre
Or if u are a tech then check shock absorbers and
Balancing counter weight .

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

I got a ue code


UE means unbalance error. It means the machine can't balance the clothes in the drum so it won't spin to prevent excessive vibration and damage to the machine.
Usually opening the door and rearranging the clothes helps, or take some out then put onto a rinse and spin. If there is just a few items in then it will struggle to spread them around and balance.

Screen reads UE? what is UE?


UE stands for Unbalance Error. If the washer has tried to spin numerous times, tried to redistribute the load itself between each attempt, and still not been able to get the load up to full speed without experiencing an off balance condition, it will finally stop and display the UE code. This is most often the case when a heavy / bulky item(s) are being washed and the spin speed is set very high. When washing these items, set the spin speed to low. The machine will most likely be able to handle that. If you want them spun out faster, then AFTER the washer has made it through the cycle on low speed spin do this: Turn the power back on. Without selecting any cycle, just press the spin speed button, selecting the next higher spin speed. Now press start, and your washer will just do a 14 minute or so pump and spin.
For super wet heavy loads, if you cannot even get the washer to go through a cycle on the lowest spin speed, you may have to wring a bunch of the water out of the clothes by hand before doing the 14 minute cycle thing.

The machine stops after the wash cycle and won't finish.


The code is UE

load too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance
detection and correction
system. If individual heavy
articles are loaded (bath
mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the
washer will make several
attempts to restart the spin
cycle. If an imbalance is still
detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
displayed.
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.

My samsung 7kg front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door


UE = Unbalance Error


Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.
