My tech guy had shown me a special way to do SPIN only lost it
Does anyone know the buttons to push to do a special spin only cycle?
My lg needed repair at one point and it was repaired, while tech was here he gave me the buttons it was not a sequence that was obvious to anyone from the front button info but it worked and gave me a spin only cycle. Have not used it in so long, now i need it again

with alot of LG washers they dont a have a spin only cycle, i dont know why they dont but it confuses alot of people, if so you should see a button that allows you to change the spin speed what you do is when you turn it on DO NOT select a cycle just press that spin speed button then press start and it will do a spin only cycle :)
Turn power on. Without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed button to select the spin speed you desire. (if you had an unbalanced load, I'd suggest a low spin speed. You can repeat after with the next higher speed if desired) Push start.
This will give about a 12 to 14 minute pump and spin only cycle.
Try setting a lower spin speed. You may have a bulky load which the washer is having a difficult time getting up to the high speed spin you have selected. Also, did you know that on most LG washers, you can do just a spin without a rinse? Just turn the washer power on, then, without selecting a cycle, just push the spin speed selector to select the spin speed desired. This should set the cycle for about a 12 to 14 minutes pump and spin only. Then push start. You can spin that bulky load at the lowest spin, then try it again at the next faster spin if needed, without adding rinse water.
This error generally happens when people try to run a bulky load, like a coat, rug, pillow, etc., using a high speed spin. For these loads, choose the low speed spin. After the cycle completes, if you think the clothes are too wet, power up the machine again but instead of choosing a cycle, just push the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed (usually about 14 minutes will show on the display) and push start. The machine will usually be able to get to a faster speed now, as the clothes have some of the water spun out of them from the earlier low speed spin, allowing the machine to reach a higher spin speed without the Unbalance Error code showing up. Of course, you want to make sure the machine is on a solid floor with all the legs adjusted properly also.
LE toward the end of cycle probably means you had a bulky load which you tried to spin out at the high spin speed setting. Use a low spin speed with bulky loads. For this load now, just put power on and without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed selector button until a low speed comes up (should be about a 14 minute display) then push start to do a pump and spin only cycle.
I TOO HAVE BEEN WONDERING HOW TO SPIN ONLY, AND I HAVE THE ANSWER :),, TURN THE POWER BUTTON ON, PUSH THE SPIN SPEED BUTTON NEXT TO DESIRED LEVEL, THEN PRESS START, THERE YOU GO , IT WILL ONLY SPIN, NOT RINSE AND SPIN :), BY THE WAY , I GOT THIS INFO FROM THE ONLINE MANUAL :), SHOULD WORK....
I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!
Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...
The way to get it to dry :
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"
It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!
Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...
Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)
For "spin only" from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.
Things I don't know:
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons
...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.
hey i am having the same exact problem with my kenmore. i had to replace my spin solinoid(its a capacitor), but i dont think it is the only thing...unsure. I will tinker with it again this afternoon...
