Possible that water solenoid valve died. Unplug the unit to clear error code, and try to fill using only hot water. Try the same procesude using only cold water.

I have tried several times to use cold cycle and the clothes always come out very hot this even happens on the warm cycle. Why wont my machine except cold water?


this can get indepth but first check your hoses and make sure cold is cold and hot is connected to hot. then check the valves by selecting a hot cycle and check water at filling to see if it was cold or hot, if your unit has a heater make sure you dont select sanitize or very hot. then post correct model and heater info. to advise further

Cold water Washes


It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Tub filling with water after cycle is finshed


If your washer fills with water, usually slowly, after the cycle is over you have a inlet water valve which is not shutting off completely. LG usually uses a separate valve for the hot and cold. If you turn off the valve where the hose comes from the house and observe for continued water fill, first one, the reopen it, then shut off the other you should be able to see which (hot or cold) is the culprit. If you post your exact model number I should be able to list the part numbers for you. The inlet valves I am speaking of are the part where the hoses connect onto your machine.
