You don't open the rear panel. This is a typical symptom of a lid switch problem. The link below will explain how to access it. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (Part number 3949238). For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:

I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.

hi here the steps Of all washing machine parts, the water pump probably takes the most punishment, because it is constantly in use. When the pump fails, you can hear or see the trouble: a loud rumbling inside the machine, or a failure of the water to drain out of the tub. Here's what you can do to fix the problem:

Step 1: Check the drain hoses to make sure they are draining properly. Remove the water supply hoses from the back of the washer. With long-nosed pliers, extract the filter screens from the valve ports in the washer or from the hoses themselves. Wash the screens thoroughly. Then replace them and reattach the hoses. If the machine still rumbles or doesn't drain, examine the pump.
Step 2: To access the pump, first bail and sponge out any water in the machine's tub. Then tip the washer over on its front, using a heavy blanket or pad to protect the washer's finish. Remove the back service panel. The pump is usually located along the bottom of the machine, but with the unit tipped on its front it's easier to remove the pump through the back than through the bottom of the washer.
Step 3: Locate the pump. It has two large hoses attached to it with spring or strap clips. If the clips are the spring type, pinch the ends of the clips together with pliers to release them, and slide the clips down the hoses. If the clips are the strap type, unscrew the metal collar to loosen the clamp. Disconnect the hoses by pulling them off the connections. If the hoses are kinked or crimped at these connections, straighten them as best you can and reconnect them. Then try the machine again to see if this kinking was causing the problem. If the machine still doesn't drain, you'll have to remove the water pump.
Step 4: To remove the pump, loosen the bolt that holds the drive belt taut and move the washer motor on the bracket to loosen the belt. Move the motor out of the way and unbolt the pump; it's usually held by two or three hex-head bolts located on the bottom of the pump housing. As you loosen the last mounting bolt, support the pump with your hand. Then lift the pump out of the washer.
Step 5: You should take the pump apart if you can, because the trouble could be lint, dirt, or pieces of cloth or paper clogging the pump impeller. Clean away all debris inside the pump and clear any debris out of the water tubes. Then reassemble the pump. Hook up the pump again and test it. If cleaning the pump doesn't put it back into working order, or if the pump housing can't be removed, replace the pump with a new one of the same kind.
Step 6: To install the new pump, set it into position and connect the mounting bolts to the pump housing. Move the motor back into position. Tighten the drive belt on the motor by prying it taut with a hammer handle or pry bar; it should give about 1/2 inch when you press on it at the center point between the two pulleys.

SOURCE: LG WF-17014PP will not rinse or spin

check the pump, there is probably a small piece of cloth in there like a sock. This happens all the time. When the motor cant turn the other direction, the locking mechanism to the gears wont engage to do the spin cycle. Turn the wsher on its side, the pump should be easy to remove, they are fasten by two long clips. get back with me if this solves the problem

This is probably a lid cover open protection. Check to see if there is a magnet on the cover, positioned almost to centre (slightly to the right) at edge of the cover. There is some sort of plastic catch to house the magnet. If it is not there, place a magnet at the corresponding area on the washer where the plastic catch will touch when the lid cover close.

How to clear drain hose


Disconnect it from machine and use an opened wire coat hanger (or drain snake) to poke crud through it and a kettle of hot water to rinse it through- don't burn yourself.
If you can't easily disconnect put it on a rinse and poke through it with drain snake as it's emptying although that is risky as you can push crud in.
It is quite unusual for a washing machine hose to clog, more likely on a dishwasher

My LG washing washing machine Fuzzy Logic 6.5kg WF-T6560NT won't drain


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

I have an lg 1415 dishwasher .. it started on a wash ,but stopped 2 mins in beeping with 'OE" flashing .water pooled at the bottom not draining. watt does "OE' mean .. and is it blocked ?...


Hi michelle_133,

The "OE" error code you are seeing, means "Outlet Error"

The drain pump is either clogged, or the outlet hose has been kinked.
- Inspect the Drainage hose at the back for kinks. - If any, straighten the hose
- Open the unit, and at the bottom sump check the small drain pump area for any foreign object that may be obstructing it. It has small holes that **** water away after the main wash, and while rinsing. Foodstuff may be blocking these holes, also remember to clean the filter after every wash.

Kind Regards :-)

When my washer in in the rinse cycle the water flows out from the top of the hose. I have used drain opener to unclog the drain. This happens every time I use the washing machine. The washer is only a year...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France Tues afternoon 15:00,

Couple of questions -
does the outlet pipe from the washer go into the (house) drain pipe fairly high up, near the top of the washer or is it low down? It should be maybe 1 metre above the floor.
If it is at the correct height, are you absolutely certain that the u-tube in the house plumbing is clear?

If the outlet pipe is high and the u-tube is clear it is possible (you do not say what make and model it is) that the house plumbing pipe size is not sufficient for the speed and amount of water that this (new) machine delivers over your others.
However-
I really would suspect a partially blocked u-tube because, without taking the u-tube to pieces to check, 'drain opener' will not necessarily clear absolutely everything- honest ;-0)

Good luck,

John C

Your machine won't spin because it can't drain.
You probably have a blocked drain hose or a faulty/blocked pump.
If you put the drain hose below the water level in the machine it may run by gravity. If it does flow this way it would show that the hose is not blocked (completely).
Make sure the machine is empty before continuing.
NOTE! Unplug machine from power supply!!
There is probably a small cover near where the drain comes out of the machine. Unscrew this cover and you will expose the pump filter, which may be (partially) blocked. Check for coins or similar which may be jamming the impeller blades..
NOTE! Any water in the machine will flow from here!!
TIP! Lean the machine forward to help contain the last of the water in the tub.
If the drain hose is clear and the pump is still not draining the machine you may have a failed pump motor.
Pump motor replacement is not a big job for an experienced tech.
Good luck....Nomess

Water is accumulating in the bottom freezer and freezing...I continually have to chisel it out. We have tried defrosting it but have the same problem a few days later.


Hi.This will normally be caused by a clogged drainage hose or plug. There is a drain leading out of the freezer and another from the refrigerator. In top freezer models, the freezer may drain the water onto the back wall. It actually runs down the wall to the refrigerator floor drain. In other cases, there may be a drain tube leading out the freezer. The refrigerator drain is either located on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel. In side-by-side models, the freezer and refrigerator will probably each have an outlet to the drain pan under the appliance.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

LG WM2010CW filter drain no draining


In all likelihood the rubber drain hose is clogged. I had the same problem with my LG front loader. The hose was clogged with sand and dirt almost the entire length of the hose. The following solution is far simpler than taking the dryer apart to clear the drain hose. Besides I figure this same thing could keep reoccurring with all the sand and dirt we get in our clothes here in East Texas.

I purchased about 4 feet of 3/16 inch OD vinyl tubing and adapted it to fit on the end of a garden hose. The adapter gizmo included a valve so I could control the water flow and not give myself a bath. A picture of the gizmo is included below. Make sure that when you connect the water hose to the faucet that the faucet valve is just slightly opened and that the gizmo valve is closed. Using the gizmo is straight forward. First remove the drain filter and than insert the vinyl tubing in the end of the rubber drain hose and slowly open the valve on the gizmo. Make sure you have a large pan or bucket underneath the drain hose to catch the debris and water. Slowly advance the tubing up inside the hose until it won’t go any further. By this time water will also be running out of the drain filter cavity which will indicate the clog has been removed. Continue back flushing for a few more seconds to assure all the debris has been cleared, than clean up and you’re finished.

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Plug off the wall, refer to manual re. outlet filter. Siphon out maximum water by removing the tube from behind machine which goes into wall drain. (refit this after cleaning into EXACT position) Clean outlet filter and refit. Good luck. When your outlet filter is clogged or blocked, the machine refuses to spin.
