    We bought our machine at the Sears Outlet and do not have an owners manual. I'm getting an error message "UE." Can someone help me -- or tell me how to get a copy of the manual?

An UE Error Code is indicative of a “Unbalanced Error”. This indicates that the drum is not spinning in a smooth rotation. It may be necessary to rearrange the load in the drum. I found this answer on the lg web site.

LG wash machin have error code "EU"

There is no such error code. The closest error code would be UE which means that it's a unbalanced load error. If you have a light load, or you are washing a large bedsheet or bedspread, that will cause it to not spin properly because the machine cannot balance the load. The best thing I can recommend is adding about 4 to 5 large bath towels so the weight can be distributed more evenly.
Good luck

My LG 2077 stops counting down at 10 minutes and stays there and then shuts off and says UE on every load. Can I replace the timer or is it another issue?

This washing machine is very sensitive to medium to large loads. Try doing a smaller load to see if the error code pops up. UE stans for unmalanced load. Good luck!

Error message UE is displayed and the machine has stopped

UE means unbalanced load. This happens when the load is too small, or the appliance is tilted, laundry is gathered to one side, non distributed things are put into the drum.

Error code UE will not spin fast except on quick wash, or if i push SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL at the same time

UE could mean user error, or if the washer senses an unbalanced drum 3 times in a row which might cause it to not spin at high speed. It could also be a control board problem. Sorry i couldnt help more

"CD" ERROR ON LG WM-3677HW Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer

CD means cool down, press the pause start button, the door lock will open. It is an anti crease cycle. It mentions it in the owners manual, but it is hidden deep in the drying section.
