Question about LG WM2688H Front Load Washer

1 Answer

L g steam washer front load

We are getting a e1 code when the rince cycle is suppost to start. e 1 is low water pressure code. we had the pressure checked at the hot and cold cutoffs and the water pressure was normal says the plumber @ 80 psi. We checked the intake filters and even removed the little grey water reducers at the filter intake connections. the machine is fairly new, 3 months. so when it codes it stops all functions and will not rince or spin. thank you for any suggestions. nicholas

The model you have this listed under WM2688H (LG Steam Washer) a E1 Code Correct water level (246) is not reached within 8 minutes
after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water
level within 25 minutes.
I suggest you

Duet. What does F8E1 code indicate needs to be done to restore operation?


Check out the Link and the info below.
Question: Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL Answer Product Symptom:
Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:
No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. The washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:

Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

My whirlpool steam duet washer won't pour water in the wash cycle


There is no output from the control panel to switch on the inlet valve, so check the inlet valve at this time of the cycle. Also check the water level pressure sensor switch.
Choose another program to confirm if not the controller seems to be suspect.

I have an E1 message on my samsung front loader, can you tell me what that means?


Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
E1 in Samsung Front Loaders: It means the machine has detected an error in inlet water filter or the water pressure. Some of my sources indicate E1 could also be a leakage error It could all mean a faulty sensor but you should check th water lines, the door seals and the floor beneath the machine for tell-tale signs of a leaking system. Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
If you can fill the washer, but it faults with and E1, and can go no further, my research shows a common cause for the problem is the PVC tube connecting the pressure sensor to the drum has experienced a problem. In some modern washers, the water level is measured and regulated with a pressure sensor connected to the tub with a plastic tube. As the water level rises inside the drum, the pressure rises inside the sealed tube. The tube can sometimes become detached or even plugged with lint, soap or wash grime. Check the pressure sensor line to make sure it is attached to the drum and is completely unobstructed by foreign objects or deposits. If so, clean the debris and/or reattach the tube to the drum and try running starting a cycle. If you don't get the E1 code - Hooray, everyone has clean clothes again :-)
If this does not work, here is a link to a Washing Machine User Blog which might be able to offer more experts and more specific information http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/washers

Kenmore front load washer, model 417


Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

Washer stops during begginning of cycle with F 35 reading .


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Side load washer spins cycle problem.


Clean your drain valve. The water is not pumping out. This puts a strain on the machine.
Remove the bottom front cover to access the drain valve.

Long wash cycles


WHEN YOU WASH IS THE WATER HOT ENOUGH IN A REASONABLE TIME? ALSO DOES THE WASHER SENCE THE AMOUNT OF SOAP THATS IN THE TUB. IT COULD BE GIVING ADDITIONAL RINCES TO REDUCE THE SOAP CONTENT.(TRY WITH NO SOAP IN SYSTEM AND SEE IF TIME IS SHORTER)
