Question about LG WM2016C
I need to replace the little removable water strainer at the inlet hose. It's a small strainer that's removable and is inserted in the machine at both the cold and hot water entrance areas. I cannot fnd this part anywhere. Even the LG parts list for this washer does not show it.
Following a 1E error I found the gaskets in both supply hoses had perished and the debris had blocked the mesh inlet filters, causing the grinding noise that the pump makes when it can't get water. The original LG filters are indeed removable, in bits. Their little plastic tag for pulling them out snaps off so you end up digging the filter out, just be careful 'cos there's another mesh behind the filter on the hot and there's a rubber seal behind the cold one. Easiest thing is to forget replacing them with original parts and get the old fashioned kind from Lowes etc, $2 for a 3 pack, these fit into the end of the supply hose and are a rubber gasket with mesh in the middle so you won't even need to buy gaskets to replace the ones that fell apart.

My husband just replaced ours...he brought the one that came with the washer to Lowes, and one of the employees helped him find what we needed...it was a 3 ok and so we replaced all the filters.

Why not try to clean these with a little CLR lime and rust remover and see if that does the trick....
