It should be automatic if your machine is plumbed in correctly, if it is not plumbed in a hose, supplied with the machine, should be connected to the cold kitchen tap to top up the machine when required.

Testimonial: "The answer is, of course, based on the way I asked it, and could be a good answer in some circumstances, I imagine. However, that would be the wrong thing to do for my LG washer/dryer, which uses the water to make steam with which it dries. That can't be added by me; it has to be introduced via plumbing. Anyway, thanks for trying and no harm done -- it's supposedly now doing what it should automatically."

    I wrote the above testimonial and realize that I did get the correct answer from asw46. He did say the water should be plumbed in, and that's correct, although I could not have done it through the kitchen tap. But the answer I got was on target and much appreciated.

No matter how much water is in the reservoir, the Add Water error message won't allow unit to work.

Hi take out the water tank and place a magnet where the float would sit. If the machine works, then the float is faulty or upside down. If it doesn't work then the sensor behind the magnet is faulty. Replace it. dazza

I get a message le or ue error and machine stops

Where in the cycle is the machine stopping?
A 1E error would be a fill problem. Either the water supply is inadequate (low pressure coming in due to a problem with your water supply), the water supply taps aren't fully open (make sure to open the valves fully), the inlet hose is bent (straighten the hose) or the inlet filter is clogged (clean the filter).

An UE error happens during the spin cycle. Either the load is too small or the load is uneven. Add some items that can tolerate the spin cycle speed or redistribute the load.

A LE error indicates that the motor has overloaded. Wait 30 minutes and then try to restart the machine. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

The manual for the WM-2277H* is available from LG as a DjVu file here: .

I hope this helps.

H20 error


I used to get this when i lived with my mum & dad and i can honestly say that it was the water pressure with this machine only a small drop in pressure makes the H20 error code appear you can always add additional water when it comes on so that the cycle can continue. You could find out from your water board if the drop in pressure is a leak in your area?

I hope this helps i had to persist with this problem for 18 months untill a leak around the corner was eventually found and fixed.

Impressa E8: even though I did clean machine, it asks me again...

Make sure your water tank to fill, when you start the clean process, and the tray is empty and wiped down. Then add a 500ml container under the spout rather than let the water go into the tray.
Also if you have not serviced the machine for about 5,000 cups this can occur.

"add water" error message.

problem solved! the float in the water tank has a magnet in it that the main unit senses. the previous owner cleaned the tank before shipping and installed the sensor upside down. if you disassemble the water tank, it is very easy to install the float incorrectly.

Suggestion: Check the wall inlet to see if water comes freely; then check if the inlet valves behind your machine to see they are not clogged. Best that u open the valve full before you begin your wash. The water coming 3 inches/door is normal. Dont try opening the door until after you hear a click or aft 2 or three minutes aft wash cycle completes.
