Good day.
Water may have been able to disrupt the units system.
Leave your unit to dry for 2 days. The system will just reset itself then.

What do we when we replaced the pump on a frontload washer, LG, but still get an error message OE?


The DE Code indicates a Drain Error. This means that the washer thinks the water has not drained out of the tub within 10 minutes, which is an eternity for the washer. Since you have indicated that there is no obstruction in the hoses, and filter, and you have replaced the pump, then the only other parts that could be at fault would be the water level sensor, or the main circuit board. Replace in that order.

Hi I keep getting an error message "F27" on my


F27 OVERFLOW CONDITION
If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds, an Overflow Condition occurs. In an
overflow condition, the door remains locked and the drain pump runs constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is cleared. Turn off hot and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before servicing.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, water inlet value, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.

I am getting a FE erroe on my LG WM-2277 HW Washer? What Part do I need?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. FE is Overflow error which means that the water is overflowing and the water level frequency is over 213. When FE error is displayed the drain pump operates to drain the water automatically. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the water inlet valve and pressure sensor which can sense the water level in the tub, if any of this goes bad overflow occurs. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

When washer was off it filled up with water and overflowed will a water inlet valve fix this. this is a whilpool washer frontload ghw9100lq1


Yes, it should. The only way water can enter a washer when off, is through a stuck inlet valve, or by siphoning water from a drain hose installed too deeply in the stand pipe. If your machine had enough water coming in to overflow, that definitely sounds like a bad inlet valve.

Bleach & Softner not emptying


What "form" are you using? liquid, gel, powder? try using a different type and lean towards the more liquid forms if your washer can handle them, ie move from powder to gel or liquid, and from gel to liquid. Hope this helps.

Powder or Liquid


. HE detergent is a must for these machines first and foremost. as a genral rule liquid detergent breaks down better in cold water, so performs better in washers(cold water rinses). powder breaks down better in hot water which is why its reccomneded for d/w's.that being said i dont really mind which is used where so long as your not experiencing cleanig problems, at that point its when i reccomend using the appropriateone. whirlpool has now reccomneded a product called AFFRESH, tablets that can be used to clean out you frontloading machine incase of residual build op and/or odors.
