Hello i have LG washer 7 kg when the motor work a few minute the display show SE if i press switch start his continue normal and repeat this state after any time

"LG 7Kg SE error...."

Hello M,
The error is 5E not SE.
They look the same on a digital display :)
This is a "Water not draining out" problem.
The machine detects level of water while draining.
If this does not drain in a 15 minute time-out, error 5 "5E" pops up on the digital time display.
Somewhere in the draining path, there is blockage.
Try this:
Check your drain hose for blockages, and that it is installed the correct way.
Remove the drain hose - prepare for a possible flood from the machine drain if you do this!
Use a garden hosepipe or strong pressure tap to flush hose forward and reverse until water runs clear.
If you live in a very cold climate maybe the hose is iced up inside.
Also check all filters to see they are not blocked up.
Hope this helps,

I have a w3840 miele washer fault code comes on drain fault check drain we remove filter clean put back together for a few more washes- light comes back on same fault take apart etc what more can i do

I had the same fault, and I fixed it in a rather strange way. There was a blockage in the drain tube cause by the stalk off an apple and lots of lint backed up against it.

Remove the drain hose from the back. Put a hosepipe down it, wrap a cloth around it and hold it together tightly as someone turns the hose on for 20 seconds. The machine will start to fill, so keep the door closed. Do it over a bucket. Turn the hose off, and then lower the hose into the bucket. Lots of lint will come out! Check the filter. Do the same thing with the hose again, check the filter again, this is when we found the apple stalk. Run the machine.

Wont drain?

Check the pump filter which could be blocked or something like a nail has jammed the pump impeller. this may cause a mess as the water needs to be drained to access the removable cover to gain access to the filter/impeller.
Also check the drain pipe is not blocked. this can also be used to drain the machine into a bucket manually.

We have a hotpoint wd420 washing machine and it wont finnish a wash cycle. wont drain the water either, we do get an error code though in that the door locked light flashes as well as the reduce creases...

you have a blocked pipe - where the water is draining out. Either that or your filter is blocked.

best you open the back and take a look at the filter before calling out hotpoint - might save you 100 pound call out charge.
