Question about LG Washing Machines

1 Answer

The barrel in our LG front loading WD won't turn.

We have an LG front loading WD 1433RD. The barrel doesn't turn. You can turn it by hand, so it's not the bearing and the motor tries to turn it. We found a coin in the outlet pump, removed it.

Any ideas?

    Thanks, we tried the LG link earlier this evening but it doesn't have our model number which is odd, it's not that old. Tried downloading a copy from another site but it didn't get past page 4. It's getting a little frustrating. We fear it may be a computer problem but were hoping to get some ideas to try.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help! It's direct drive so no brushes or pulley. It comes up with a fault code but we don't have a manual to look it up in."

    If it is a direct drive it is probably a sick capacitor

LG WD 1433RD wont turn on

Possible failure of the power to the controller, check after disconnecting and if there is power to the controller with no action there is failure within the board. Check for fuse within or the surge protector, if not there can be damage in the circuit. estimate cost.

I'm looking for a manual for this appliance LG Washer/Dryer wd-1433rd as at the present when I use it it takes about 4 hrs to do a small wash!!!! help!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi, hope you can help, I have a 4 kg LG Washer / Dyer (model WD - 1433RD). It is displaying "CL" on the readout. Have lost the manual so wondering if this is a simple fix or not?

CL means that the child lock feature is active and the control panel buttons will not respond. For the LG WD1433RD, press and hold the Rinse+ and Pre-Wash buttons together for about 3 seconds to toggle the lock off. For the LG WD14311RD, press and hold Option and Rinse for about 3 seconds. On both washers, there is a small icon between the two buttons needed to toggle the child lock feature on and off. (It's a small face above a padlock.)

The manual as a Djvu file for the LG WD14311RD is available here: .

The manual for the WD1433RD is available as a PDF here: .

I hope this helps.

My washing machine is LG WD 1433rd and now is stop working and shown "LE" on the display what is it mean?

I did a quick search on Google-- and I found this site most helpful:

Please enter that, and read thru the pages of good suggestions-- Evidently a new installation uses special reset procedures--
and if the machine has not had High Efficiency soap-- that can cause this trouble--
It sounds like there are several other possibilities too-

Let me know if reading that site is helpful or not-- Maybe we can work thru the site together, and get to the bottom of the trouble.
