Question about LG WM2301HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I recently purchased an LG WM2301HW washing machine. I was wondering if this particular unit automatically controls the temperature of the water on a particular cycle or if the warm water needs to be adjusted from the inlet taps. For example, I'm washing a load on the warm temperature cycle right now. I just reached in to test the temperature and it is cold! It certainly isn't anywhere near the approximate 100 degrees that a warm cycle should be. If I have to adjust it from the inlet taps, do you have any good suggestions as to HOW I should go about accomplishing that feat? It isn't as easy as a top load washer, obviously.

Page 22 of the user manual states that warm rinses are regulated at 86F (30C) it states that there is a heating element as well to boost the temp to normal hot water temperatures (90-100 C)

SOURCE: Cold water Washes

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

SOURCE: LG WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.

You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

Kenmore Elite HE3 does not work with Pure Wash system


One of the things to try is get a Y connector for the machine. Hook both ends of the Y to the washer at the hot and cold, then connect the last part to the pure wash. The HF error is HOT FLOW so it is not seeing any hot water pressure. The actual temperature should not be an issue. Also if you have too much water pressure you wont see the bubbles. If that happens just start turning down the cold water valve on the connection to the pure water unit until you see bubbles in the viewing window. I ams sceptical about these machines because you have to reduce the surface tension of water in order for it to clean, that is partly the job of heated water and laundry soap. Also if there is an ozone generator in that unit, there is a consumable part because ozone needs electrolysis to be generated. I cant help but wonder where the hydrogen goes when it is generated.

LG washer model wm2301hw won't turn on


We had the same problem (washer would not turn on). The problem was a small fuse blown in the power noise filter unit. The unit is a plastic block near the top of the washer on the inside - connected to the power cord. It is a very commonly produced unit and goes in a number appliances. The fuse inside fails frequently (so I hear) and is extremely difficult to replace due to the protective-covering material so it's easier to just replace the whole unit. I purchased a replacement unit for about $30.

Very easy fix:

1. Unplug the washing machine.
2. Take off the top of the washing machine (two screws in the back)
3. Identify the noise filter unit (top of washing machine, hanging on the right with the power cord attached to it).
4. Remove with one screw and unplug the two cables going into the noise filter unit. Slide out the unit.
5. Put in new unit. Screw it in, and plug the two cables into it.
6. Put the top of the washing machine back on (not necessary to test if the new unit works)
7. Plug in washer and run.

I have an LG washing machine and I am having a problem trying to wash my bathroom mats. They do not have any rubber on the back it is the same material on both sides which ofcourse makes them...


Maybe you should just wash one at the time and hang them out to dry. Water level and wash time are set automatically based on the weight and size of each load for optimal washing care.

Water continues to fill the tub even when the machine is off! Our water supply valve is the only way to make it stop filling!


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

OE problem


An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes. However, the OE error code does not always mean that the washer requires a service call. If periodic maintenance has not been performed on the washer, there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a LEVEL on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
