Question about LG Washing Machines
PE stands for Pressure Error. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.

There is a round clean out door accessed from the front of your unit. Some models you have to take the lower panel off entirely to clean it out. It unscrews and probably there is anything and everything you can imagine clogging the pump inlet....thus the error message "PUMP ERROR" THe unit's error code may manually have to be deactivated in the control panel to reset the unit to normal operation.

If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

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...

Testimonial: "I am extremely impressed that this won't cost a call out service fee. . . and looking like a bimbo. thanks, heatman!"
SOURCE: Hi, we have a LG
working on lg for a while we have talked to tech suport and they don't want to admit they have a issue with these units.. first of all they say if on a pedastal they will give you problems but yet they sale the darn things... what we have found though is there is a device called a haul densor and it is very easy to replace you have to remove the backof unit panel and gain access to the back of tub... make sure it is connected well as it is on a rotor looking device called a stator assembly... if it is connected well and you have made sure it is level you have a bad haul sensor...thsi is what determines the speed of drum and slows down unit if getting out of balanced.. it is not that expensicve and pretty easy to fix.... hope this helps you out...
