LG Tromm Water filling

I have a new LG Tromm Steam washer and when I turn it on everything starts out OK but when it starts to fill with water it has several rapid on and offs that shut off so fast that my plumbing in my house sounds like the pipe are banging together very loud, I am a bit worried.

    Pipes bang on initial filling of water to washer.

  • nikibabs Dec 25, 2008

    I just bought htis same washer and same thing. When I start the wash cycle,the banging fro the hot watr pipes is terribly loud. Just to make sure I used cold water only and no banging. I'm afraid something will break.

    My LG washer does the same thing- we got the two water hammer arresters which screw right onto washing machine pipes- it still bangs- any other suggestions or should we try a different arrester model?

The on and off is normal while it's filling and calculating how large the load is. More then likely you have rather high water pressure and that's causing the "hammering". They do make "anti-hammer" devices you can install in the line to take up that pressure surge instead of making the pipes bang. Check with Lowe's or Home Depot.

My LG TROMM Hot water continually fills even after machine is turned off and unplugged. I have to shut off water supply to stop it.

Unplug the washer removing all electrical power from the machine. Turn the water back on and confirm that water is still entering the machine.

If the condition is true no power to washer and water enters machine it is very likely that the fill solenoid has failed.

this part is not that difficult to replace.

Lg washing machine error code is ie

IE = inlet error. Washer has not detected enough water after 8 minute fill time. Check screen at inlet water valves where hoses connect to machine for blockage. Look for kinked hose(s). Make sure there is water supply reaching machine. If all OK, most likely next thing is the water valve itself.
