Question about LG WM3677HW 3.7 cu.ft. Front Load Washer and Dryer

1 Answer

Cycle is leaving loads of soaking wet clothes

I have run the full cycle three times now, and the clothes are soaking wet still. This has happened in the past, and rerunning the cycle has solved the problem. This time, it isn't. I have drained out the water from the bottom of the machine (which has produced about 1.5 quarts of water each time). Any suggestions?

    Thanks. Tried cleaning filter already. Usually that works, but not this time. How would I go about figuring out whether hose under machine tub is blocked? If it is clogged, how would I unblock it?

  • kolpeterson Dec 27, 2007

    Somehow, after cleaning out the filter, and running the cycle four times, it has started to work again on the fifth try. So, I didn't have to resort to attempting to unblock the hose after all.

    I find this washer/dryer quite undependable. Without cause, this kind of failure happens bi-annually.

Power off the wall. Get user's manual, look for blocked filter. Open up the filter, usually front bottom right side, clean, refit. Be prepared for much water to come out. The filter requires periodic cleaning according to usage.
Also possible your hose under the machine tub is blocked.......

    You need a nice broad pair of pliers. You can easily see the hose coming from under the tub to the pump area; unclip the bottom side of hose. The upper side may not be so easy, it is inserted into the tub. Use some wooden stick or something to feel up this tube, maybe with a hook? Possible a sock or something blocks it. A small amout of water remains in the tub, its normal.



    Another item to check is your pressure hose. This is a thin hose going up from the pump area to the control switch area. Carefully disconnect this hose from the top & blow into it, it should be free; this is the water level hose. Some dirt from the pump area shd be blocking it; clean and refix carefully.

Haier xqg50 will not dry; It runs the full wash cycle, and will actually run the dry cycle, but the clothes come out comletely soaked. Ran the full 120 minute dry cycle three times, and the clothes were...


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle


If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine

Load remains wet after full cycle (including spin @ 1400 rpm)


Hi Paul, Assuming it is pumping out ok, Unplug the machine tip it back at an angle, underneath you will see a black hose that is attached to the bottom of the drum, remove this, take out the ball and discard it and remove anything that may be in the filter, replace the hose and try the machine.
