SOURCE: LG front loader problem

If you remove the top cover you will see the soap dispenser unit on the left. It has a large rubber hose connecting it to the drum. If you remove two screws at the front you can free the dispenser for maintenance. You can undo the clips on the various hoses and check that they are clean.

Some people report some dripping from the soap dispenser even when the hose is unblocked. This seems to be a design fault.

SOURCE: clogged drain(?) LG WM2233H*

Check on the back of the unit just below where the 2 water lines come in. This is the location of the tub air vent. If you see evidence that water has trickled out of this vent then you probably had an oversudsing issue.

There is a mushroom valve inside the machine that seals off this vent when the machine is spinning out. Often, if oversudsing has occurred this mushroom valve will get soap residue on the shaft and keep it from shutting all the way. When water leaks out this vent on the back it tends to make its way under the machine and pools up right in front of the drain filter housing.

If this is your case, just make sure you are using an HE (high efficiency) detergent as it is low sudsing. Also make sure to only use 2-3 tablespoons per load.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution or ask additional questions if needed.

SOURCE: MY LG WASHER WONT DRAIN, IT SAYS THE ERROR MESSAGE

OE is a drain error - Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

SOURCE: LG WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.

You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

Inconsistent leaking coming the back of the washer.


The inlet water valve for the cold water has three connections to it. There are a total of 5 hoses that put water in the machine. These are on the cold water side. Check them for leaks, cracks and tight connections.

Lg tromm front loader will tumble but wont spin


Open the access door at the bottom left corner of your washer. Use the small hose there to drain the remaining water from the machine. Un-screw the big knob next to it and pull out the attached filter. Clean out the filter and re-install. If the filter was clear, replace drain pump motor.

Washer will not drain GE washer


If you have a top loader, try this.
If it agitates but doesn't spin or pump, it could be that your pump is seized or something is stuck in it. The agitator is operated by a different motor. Turn OFF the power. and remove the front vertical panel by inserting a drywall knife in a the top right about 4" in from edge at the joint 1" down from the top, push the clip back to release that corner, get another knife and do the same to the left top corner, the pull the top of the front panel and swing towards you, then lift off and remove. Discount the two hoses to the pump, one from the drum the other that goes to the back. Be ready for a considerable amount of water to come gushing out, use a hose to direct to a floor drain. Check to see if something is stuck in the pump or the hoses, remove it. Check to be sure the impeller spins. If you found something restricting the flow or pump, remove it and re assemble. If the impeller won't spin easily, then you need a new pump.

Remove blockage in the pump. Re-assemble and test.

LG WM-2032HW front loader washer gives error goes OE and IE


"OE" is really "DE"= drain error. Clean out filter behind access door on lower left corner front panel of machine. (there will be some water in machine)
"IE" = inlet error. machine took too long to fill. clean out inlet water screens where the hoses connect onto machine.
