    It has power. The door is closed. It runs through the wash cycle fine ( the drum moves, etc.) when it switched to the rinse cycle it just makes a rattling noise and it wont drain out or spin. I ran a large load yesterday and it came up with the uneven load error (I think) but apparently it was more than that. I tis about 5 years old. Model #WM0532WH LG

    Quite difficult to help with more information. The appliance have power? Closed door? What it does, what it doesn't do? Could you explain more about the failure, age of appliance, model number?

The problem is this, The machine wont spin until it sense that it is empty. So your solution is easy either a faulty pump that wont drain the water from the machine or a blockage in the the filter. There should be a filter at the front behind the kick plate at the bottom of the machine just check to see if you have something stuck in it before you go changing the pump. The easest whether its the pump or a blcokage is to disconnectthe waste pipe and drop it to floor level if the water comes out the machine then its the pump if it does not then its a blockage .

please rate if it helps

8 YEAR OLD LG FRONT LOAD WASHER WONT SPIN OR DRAIN


If the washer won't spin the stator or rotor assemblies at the back of the washer tub might be bad or damaged. The rotor is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the rotor fails or is damaged the washer might not spin or agitate. Check the rotor for damaged magnets or other defects

My front loader washer gets stuck on its last spin and wont drain properly. I am trying to wash a comforter and blanket. This is the 1st time its happened. Thank you


You may to mention the brand and model of machine. Mine is an Lg, I just shut off machine. Turn it back on and then press the no spin and start, this drains the washer. You may have too much clothes in the machine.

The washer isn't draining and spinning. Washer has message coming up- OE and it stops working. We were thinking it was the water pump? Please help.

Wont spin


Hi,


"OE" code in your washer indicates a Drain error. This is because the washer is not fully drained within 10 minutes. You have to check whether there is a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge.


Thank you !!
