Lg wf-t1022tp gives a PE error code.


Try this first before replacing any parts or disassembling your LG washer:
- Unplug the washing machine for 1 minute.
- Plug the washing machine back into power.
- Restart the wash cycle.
- The washing machine may now have cleared the PE error code, if not see below...

You will need to check the wiring harness that connects the water level pressure sensor to the main control board.
- Check for a loose wire harness, a damaged wire harness, or a burnt faulty wire.
- Check that you get continuity through the wire harness by checking it with a multimeter.
- If the wire harness from the water level pressure sensor to the main control board is found to be faulty, replace it.
- If you get continuity and the wiring harness is securely connected to both the water level pressure sensor and the main control board, then proceed to the step below...

LG WASHER PE ERROR CODE - FIX METHOD #2
Water Level Pressure Sensor Switch Is Faulty And Needs To Be Cleaned Or Removed And Replaced.
Most commonly, if the wire harness is secure, tight, and not damaged, the part that needs to be checked is the water level pressure sensor.
- First check to be sure the water level pressure sensor is not caked with hard water or other debris.
- If the water level pressure sensor is not clean, the PE error can display.
- Remove the water level pressure sensor from your LG washer and clean off any hard water or debris.
- Clean out the tube that connects to the
- If you found the water level pressure sensor was caked with debris and you have cleaned it, replace it back into the washer and run a test.
- If the washer runs without the PE error code displaying, the washer is fixed and the PE error has been cleared.
- If you find that the water level pressure sensor is faulty, remove it and replace with a new OEM part.

Replacing the water level pressure sensor simply involves locating the sensor in your LG washer. Remove it from the washer and replace it with a new genuine LG washer part. Test washer to be sure the PE error code has cleared and the washer is now working properly

Code f 24 washer wil not start


The "F24" fault code indicates a water temperature sensor error. The temperature sensor could be faulty; the wire connection may have vibrated loose or off the sensor or a possible heater or control board failure. I would begin by

disconnecting the power cord from the power source

and remove the rear panel from the back of the washer. The temperature sensor (key#24) is located at the bottom of the back of the tub. I added an image below to reference the location and a temperature sensor chart. If you do not find the sensor wires disconnected, disconnect the wires and you will need an Ohm meter to measure the resistance of the sensor. At 86 degrees or room temperature, the sensor should measure approximately 9.7K Ohms. Disregard the information in the image about the heating element; your specific model does not have a heating element to heat water. The water temperature is dependent on the temperature of the hot water entering the washer.

NOTE: Be sure the washer is empty of water before removing the sensor.

If you find the temperature sensor faulty; the

temperature sensor for model WFW8410SW01 washer is part #8181705

which can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

My lg washer machine over fills of water causing to leak from the door.


There is a water level sensor in the machine that needs to be located and tested. This sensor when operating properly tells the control unit when there is sufficient water in the machine then the control unit shuts off the water supply.

Getting an f-24 code, saw the solution page but it doesn't describe where the part is located or how to replace it. I am wondering if there is a way to reset the machine by unplugging or a reset button...


Hi, F24 error code a water temperature sensor error or enought hot water to the washer.
check to see you have both valves are turned on. Also, the water inlet valve on the washer has a screen and it is known to get clogged and restrict water flow. Turn off the hot water valve. Pull the hot water hose off where it attaches to the back of the washer.
Even if you are getting good hot water flow, inadequate water temperature can cause an F24 error code. Check the temperature setting on your hot water heater. It should be set at 120 F. You should reach this hot water temperature at your washer within about 1 minute.
If you are getting a good hot water flow, you may one of the following failures:
1 loose or dirty connection at the temperature sensor or control board.
2 The temperature sensor could be out of range. Bad or shorted sensor
3 Control board failure.

The temperature sensor should have a resistance reading of 6.6k ohms at 104 degrees F and should drop in Ohms as temperature rises,
The temperature sensor is located at the back lower section of the tub with 2 small black wires. It would require a ohm meter to measure the resistance of the sensor.

Water will not cut off


the level switch is located just next to the timer control, it is a pressure acitvated switch feed by a tube on the side of the washer outer tub, it may be plugged, remove the back of the panel and blow air low pressure air into the tube that is connected to the level sensor, if it seems clear replace the level sensor switch

Washer only has cold water. Hot water is good to machine but only cold water enters machine on warm cycle, no water ar all on hot cycle.


Hello there
The Water System temperature sensor is normally what is wrong with these units with this condition that you are experiencing
The water system consists of the hot and cold water inlet valves, a water temperature sensor, a water
flowmeter and control and the dispenser distribution system along with a traditional pressure switch.
Water Inlet Valves -
The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer. These valves receive a control
signal from the Central Control Unit to manage the temperature of incoming water. The temperatures
are determined by the specific wash cycle selected and a temperature sensor located in the wash tub.
To improve cleaning of heavily soiled clothing and to provide a sanitizing feature, the water temperature
can be increased through the use of a heating element located in the bottom of the tub

Washer is leaking tremendous amounts of water. also it is giving 2 codes F05 and FH


Hi,

F05 error is an indication of a water temperature sensor (NTC) error, or Heating Circuit failure. Check the Water Temperature Sensor and check connections to the Water Temperature Sensor. To access, you will have to UNPLUG your washer and remove the lower access panel under the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge.

Suggestion: If you place a block of wood under each front foot of the washer, it will make access to the screws much easier. If the panel sticks, a tap on the sides will knock it free. The panel will drop down then come off. The sensor (NTC) is located at the base of the wash tub in the front on the heating element. This will be a small square shaped plug between the heating element terminals. Unplug the wire harness and take a resistance check.

The ideal readings should be

Temperature Meter Reading
32°F (0°C) 35.9 K ohms
86°F (30°C) 9.7 K ohms
104°F (40°C) 6.6 K ohms
122°F (50°C) 4.6 K ohms
140°F (60°C) 3.2 K ohms
158°F (70°C) 2.3 K ohms
203°F (95°C) 1 K ohms

Finally, remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws holding the panel in place in the rear. Once the screws are removed, slide the panel back then off. Locate the Central Control Unit (CCU) directly behind the wash tub. Take a resistance check at the Heating Element Solenoid by removing connector 9 from the CCU (this is the second connector from the RIGHT as facing from the front). A reading across test points 1 & 2 should also read 15 ohms.

I hope this information if found to be helpful.

God Bless

Washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub


That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.
