Question about LG WM-2432H Front Load Washer
Water continues to fill the top load washer and does not shut off when tub is full and overfills
Our LG WM-2432H front load washer was overfilling. I got the service manual from LG on the web ( http://184.108.40.206/contents/Laundry/WM2432.htm )
and the most useful thing in that manual was a listing of special control codes that can be entered from the front panel, for example to turn on the drain pump.
I thought maybe the sensor switch was broken, but after disassembling the machine I discovered that the 3/16" ID rubber hose between the sensor switch and the bottom of the tub had shaken loose from its supports and through dragging on the back of the tub during spin cycles, had worn down and had a hole in it, allowing air pressure to leak.
After vacuuming up the shredded rubber, I replaced that tubing with a three foot length of 3/16" inside diameter fuel line purchased from a local Lowes store. I used some twist ties to secure it to the back of the washer housing so it would not drag on the drum. The washer now works fine.
You can do this whole repair by removing the back access panel, only four screws. Look for shredded rubber; the hose just slips off of the sensor and the tub connect points at both ends.
