LG Fuzzy Logic won't drain out the water

My top loading LG step TurboDrum Fuzzy Logic begins the cycle without a problem, fills the machine and when it's ready to drain it stops and flashes on the error light - Drain Er.  Unfortunately I cannot find my book.  I tried restarting the cycle 3 times and it stopped with this error each time.  I have just emptied the water out manually.  I'm desperate, can you help?

I have a LG 3step Turbodrum Fuzzy Logic WF-T8018TP when I put on the auto/off button it keeps on showing me the error PE how can a fix this

The PE error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.

The first thing I'd check is the water pump if the timer's working ok...

I have LG fyzzy logic 6.5 kg WFS65AO1DCT and it keeps loading and draining water even when in spin

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine. Next is the drain hose is to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your homes plumbing. If the drain hose does not have an air gap aroung it, it can cause a siphon effect and start draining your machine as it fills. If none of these are the problem and your drain pump is running at the same time it is filling you will need to replace the control. For top load machines follow this video and for front load machines follow the tutorial.

LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out

If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

The LG Canada website has it.

Click on "Owner's Manuals" on the left hand menu and fill in the details, model number WF-T8016TP. You'll need IE, not Firefox...

Water can't drain out properly

i think all the fuzzy logic machines have an electric pump so it is maybe not running to pump the water out or i have had problems with the electronics that run the pump
