Lg wf-t1022tp gives a PE error code.


Try this first before replacing any parts or disassembling your LG washer:

- 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...

Dishwasher starts and then stops with 9E flashing in window.


The 9E issue indicates a low water level in the dishwasher. Check your hoses. Make sure that no dishes flipped and filled with water. Make sure that the dishwasher is level. Next check if there is any debris blocking the water level (overflow) sensor. It's in a small square plastic box on the left side of the dishwasher. Pull the dishwasher forward and check for loose or damaged wires to the water level sensor.

If the wiring is good and the error persists, replace the sensor. Replace the wiring if it is damaged. If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to point you to the replacement part. If your dishwasher is under warranty, contact Samsung for the repair.

I hope this helps.

Water will not stop at the right level.


Possible that the water level sensorr had failed. Now if this fault had come after you had replaced the belt it is possible that a damage or a careless fitting was done. So remove and check the water line to the level control sensor. Also check the wire to sensor and to the program controller unit. If this is open the water level will not be detected.

Set dial and water overflows, doesn't stop sending water in tub, No spin cycle


The water level sensor is faulty and so it does not switch even with water level coming to the set level. Unless the water level switch is triggered the water inflow will not stop because the inlet valve will not cut off.Remove the water level sensor and check if the diaphragm is working , if not it must be replaced.

Hello..My washer has stopped rinsing. the lights have gone out completely and the tub is half full with water. What's the problem with this washer? Any ideas?


I have give the same solution in my other post, here it is :
exactly in the water level sensor, please check the hose that connected to water level sensor, make sure no dirt blocking or clogging the hose. also you can clean the tube under the pulsator, usually there is many dirt blocking the hose line.
the problem is in the hose leading to the water level sensor, if there is no dirt and looks normal, water level sensor must be replaced.246ac89.jpg

Admiral washing machine keeps filling up and will not stop till I turned my water valves off, and then it will not wash the clothes but will spin them .


The water level sensor is faulty. After the inlet valve is opened the program controller needs the signal fromt he water level sensor. Thi is normally a pressure switch and as the water builds up the tub through a small opening the water flows through a tube to trigger the switch. So find out the pressure switch and replace. Only once the sensor clicks will the program proceed to wash . Otherwise you can spin becasue the water level sensor need not work for spinning as the level is down.
