SOURCE: LG Washing Machine stops spinning in mid cycle

IE:

• Water supply is not adequate in
area.
• Water supply taps are not
completely open.
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.

Solution:
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Straighten hose.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.

UE:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
spinning.

SOURCE: LG INTELLOWASHER STOPPED SPINNING

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

I had the same problem. You most likely have a drain pump issue. For me, after getting to the drain pump, I found that the hoses leading into it were clogged with dirt. I cleaned all the hoses, and took off the drain pump itself. The impeller (the little plastic blades inside) had come off the pump shaft. I was able to clean out the impeller and pump housing and it went back on. You'll know it's all the way on because it will click into place and then it won't easilty (if at all) pull back off. After this cleaning, mine worked fine. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ue error during spin mode (b4 spin up happens) empty. wm3677hw

An UE Error Code is indicative of a “Unbalanced Error”. This indicates that the drum is not spinning in a smooth rotation. It may be necessary to rearrange the load in the drum. Also you have mentioned that the drum with full load has no such problem. It means that the drum cannot manage its weight in that position. So the problem might b adjustable easily. Try to remove the top panel and check for any slight movement in the position of the drum. Leaving it continue this way might increase the probability for the error to be repeated with the load. Will add some links related to internal diagrams of this model when i find some that might help you to check the drum inside.


Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution and post comments and results.

SOURCE: "UE" error code LG washer wm0642hw

This is an Imbalance code. Your issue may be with:

  • The load is too small
  • The appliance is tilted
  • Laundry is gathered to one side
  • Non-distributed things are put into the drum
Try adjusting the load size, and make sure the unit is level.

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

Hi!

I think there is nothing wrong with your washer. The UE error means Unballanced Error. This error comes up in two cases: 1. the load is distributed unevenly in the drum or 2. the machine is not properly set on an even surface (floor).
Of course, it could be a third case possible, but very unlikely, when the ballance sensor itself is malfunctioning and have to be replaced, or the spring and dampers are worn out and also have to be replaced.

Hope it helped!

Best regards

LG washing machine direct drive when i put it on it washes and goes down to 9 mins then stops, sometimes an error code comes up UE? CAN U HELP PLEASE


It means Unbalanced Error, it means the machine cant balance the load during the spin cycle, normally happens if there is too little a load i.e 1 or 2 things or overloaded. It is designed to protect the bearings. If it happens with a normal load try stopping it and re-arranging the load by hand and putting it on a spin only cycle. Hope this helps.

What does UE mean in the window of my washer


UE = Unbalance Error. If you are doing a large item and cannot add, reduce, or adjust the load, try adjusting the spin speed to a low spin speed setting. If the load is still too wet, you can run just a pump and spin by turning on power and then selecting the spin speed, one setting higher than the last one which ran the full cycle through without resulting in the UE code,(without selecting a cycle) and push start.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.
