Re: Help

You could have a blockage in the drain spigot, that is where the drain hose connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub, or the drain pump may be jammed. Check the spigot and if clear remove the drum to pump hose from the pump. Check inside the pump and the hose for any foreign matter. Try to turn the pump impeller by hand . If the impeller doesn't turn freely and all is clear, replace the drain pump. Always switch the machine off and pull the plug out of the socket before doing any work.

How do I get fabric softener to flow into washing machine

jrez's answer is for toploaders... you said you have a drawer, so it's a front loader.

The softener is usually taken up by a syphon. This can be removed from the drawer assembly for cleaning, when they clog they can't syphon.
While the machine is taking water for the last rinse, some of the incoming water is sent via the softener compartment. As softener is thick, without a syphon the softener would just sit in the bottom of the compartment and the fresh water would just skim off the top.

SO: Check the drawer after the final rinse.. if the softener compartment is full to the brim, the syphon is blocked. OR .. if there's just the same amount of softener as when you started the cycle, you have a filling problem instead.
Filling problem can be for two reasons: early machines had one water valve, and a flap which squirted water into the various compartments, operated by a linkage from the timer - this linkage can break, the spring can fall off, all mechanical. Later machines use a separate water valve, and this can fail shut.

Wash down

Since down comforters are very light in weight, they confuse energy efficient front loader washing machines in how much water to add. Therefore, very little water is used, which results in a semi-damp comforter at the end of a wash. Pre-soaking the comforter beforehand would help, however, now the comforter weighs a ton, and the machine will vibrate like crazy during a spin cycle. It may be better to have the comforter dry cleaned.

My LG Tromm front loader has an OE error message and isn't spinning. First received the message during a full load of laundry. Had to drain the water from the hose at the bottom and finally got it unlocked...

OE is normally down to blocked drain pipes, mcalpine (connection under the sink) or a blocked front filter. empty the machine and unscrew the filter behind the flap at the bottom right hand side, check for any obstructions, icoins, hair grips etc are normally blocking here

Whirlpoool front end loader washing machine showing an f 06 error

The F/06 is:
Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

The tech. should check these:

Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check the Drive Motor
Check the MCU
Check the Wire Harness

Lg front load washing machine does not seem to get the clothes clean. I think it is because it uses so little water??? How can it get clothes clean with just a few cupfulls of water? All controls and...

I have run into this problem several times with LG washers. On one job LG had us replace every electronic componet that had anything to do with the water fill and the problem still was not resolved. The electronic control determines how much water to fill depending on the load size, so smaller loads give you less water, with the same amount of soap. Leaving clothes in the washer overnight, and leaving the door closed does contribute to mold and fungi growth in the washer. The customer tried different brands of soaps and different amounts of soap. He left the door open after usage to allow the unit to dry out, and tried different cleaners, to clean out the sludge build up. We determined that there just is not enough water to thoroughly clean the clothes. The sales store had to replace the washer with another brand. There is an ongoing class action lawsuit against Lg for this problem. Do an online Search for lg washer lawsuit. By the way, we don't have a problem with clothes not getting clean with the Whirlpool Super Capacity Duet Front-Loading Washers. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

LG1812CW Walks During Spin Cycle

The rear 2 legs are fixed. The front 2 are adjustable. There are lock nuts to prevent the adjustment from coming loose. The front legs are to be adjusted to the minimum. While not running if the machine rocks, continue the adjustment. For few clothes there is a half load switch; best the read the manual well before anything. Well if the walking continues, check the rear for any shocks or springs that may hv fallen off during transport. Plug off the wall socket first.
