Question about LG WM2277H Front Load Washer

Water insufficient in LG tROMM WM2277H

All water is absorbed by small number of towels or sheets. They don't really get clean and come out stiff even using fabric softener (which was never needed with old top-loader which could wash multiple sets just fine). What determines the "automatic" amount of water? Is it a fixed amount? If so, how much is it? There are no error codes, no mold, no clogs. Had it serviced and was told it works just fine.

There are pressure switches (weighs the tub) connect to the tub... towels and sheets hold more water and therefor weigh more.. try washing less pieces and see if that helps..

This is another example of our government knowing whats best for us!! I have to wash two or three more loads.. and THEN rinse and spin each to get them clean.. I use A LOT more water this way...
oh well...

    Government has nothing to do with this. You are welcome to buy non water conserving units.

SOURCE: lg wm2277h has low water level

The water level is very low on front load machines. (Below the bottom of the door) While the washer is running, push and hold the "spin speed" and "soil level" buttons at the time. Display should be between 230 and 255.(normal) If you do this while the machine is filling, you will see the numbers change. This machine only uses about 12 gallons of water for an entire cycle, vs. about 45 for some top loading machines. THIS IS NORMAL ! The machine will adjust the amount of water based on the type and volume of clothes in your washer. On a large load, you will see wet clothes, but no water sloshing around. PS. Because the machine uses so little water, make sure you use only one tablespoon of HE detergent (and only one teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it). This is very important.

If this info was helpful, please rate it as a "FixYa". Thanks.

The water overfills due to a faulty water valve. The valve needs to be replaced.

Put another filter on before the washer. Try to find out if it is in the hot water or the cold. If it is the cold try a filter. If it is the hot, replace your hot water tank.

SOURCE: Tromm LG front loader error code

Hi,

Already answered by an expert :-

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Thanks.

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

LG Tromm WM2277 leaking from back bottom


The last spin is the final Emptying phase. There has to be a leak somewhere in the exiting water route. All tubing and the water pump along with all clamps will need to be checked for integrity.

My lg tromm front load washer smells


Try this, It's involved but it worked on my Kenmore HE4tDrain the machinePull the filter (have a sheet pan, wet vac and towels handy, there's a lot of water)Disconnect the drain boot from the pump and tubDisconnect the pump drain hose (waste)Disconnect the pump electricalWash everything (not pump motor) in a 25% bleach solutionReassemble.Put 1 gal boiling water, 1 gal hot water and 1/2 cup bleach in washer compartment. check for leaksWash entire compartment with the bleach water and spin the drum time to time for 15 minutesAdd TechnoFresh (which claims to loosen gunk) to the powdered soap dispenser, through a bunch of rag towels in and run the machine on the hottest cycle.This process works well until machine is stinky again (about 6 months depending on bleach usage)BTW "the leave door open trick" only helps the door gasket and does not address the constant reservoir of fermenting water in the bottom of the machine

Wash in cold water, and use fabric softener as well as dryer sheets when drying at low heat on dryer. To hot of water and to hot o drying will cause this.

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.

LG Washer stops when it gets to rinse cycle


Code flashing IE? The code means the machine is not getting enough rinse water. Remove the hoses from the back i=of the machine, pull out screens, cold water is blue tab inside connection on washer, hot water is red. Clean screens and insert them back into the appropriate connection. Use a stiff brush and water to clean. Reset the machine by disconnecting power, press start/pause button(blue button on right) for at least five seconds, reconnect power.

What is causing my LG TROMM to stink?


Take off the square panel in front with a butter knife and unscrew the trap. Make sure you keep a towel under it because it will have residual water still in that area. Clean out the trap and run a load with bleach. This may help considerably

Front load washer leak


This could be the rubber seal or the door lock. If the door lock is not pulling it tightly closed then it needs to be replaced. Check the seal really closely and make sure there are not cracks and it does not look deformed
