Question about LG WM-0532HW Front Load Washer
No water comes out of the lower drain plug hose...full of "gunk" The drain pump filter had money and water drains from it instead. How to dean out drain hose?
Believe it or not...I think it is fixed. I used a coat hanger to try to take out as much "gunk" as I could from the drain plug hose. I added warm water and then vinegar to the hose with a medicine dropper to help loosen the "gunk" I also forced air with the medicine dropper and I could hear it in the tub from the pump. Then I knew it was free of "gunk." I ran 3 hot cycles 2 with 1/2 gallon each of vinegar and one plain water cycle. Between each cycle I emptied the drain plug hose and drain pump filter. After the three cycles the water came out clean and not muddy. I also took a spray bottle of hot water and sprayed the "gunk" from around the seal to release it and out of the washer. I alternated with the spray bottle of water and vinegar applied with a small paint brush. I also noticed this "gunk on the stainless steel tub as well. I used the paint brush and painted vinegar on that and sprayed down with the hot water. I then did a load of towels and this morning my washer does not smell and is clean as can be...no more "gunk." what is that stuff anyway? Too much soap or softener? Anyone else have this problem? I was told by the service tech a few years ago that I didn't need to open that door because that is where they service the machine from.....wrong....I was to empty that drain hose from time to time. That was the first time I opened that door and the machine is 4 years old....

I was actually able to fix this problem by blowing out the drain hose with an air compressor. The drain hose was full of beach sand.
