I had a similar problem just last week. My washer made a loud grinding noise and would not drain, so I used the wet vac to clear the water from the drum. I had to call for serivce, and my drain pump was replaced (part cost approximatley $50), the sound went away, and now that works, although it seems my drum is now not balanced which is painfully obvious. I guess I have to call the "professionals" again. I hope this helps.

My lg front load washer posted this ER: check the drain and the hose. we checked all the drain. but the machine stopped when it was on SPINNING. the ER POSTING : CHECK THE DRAIN is back


Water comes out of the drum through a soft corrugated hose, into the filter, out of the filter through another soft corrugated hose into the pump and out of it through the hose that is put to the drain. Have you checked all of these pipes? Sometimes something small can get past the filter and get stuck in the pump. If it is all clear, then perhaps the pump is faulty.

LG trom wASHER wm20160W WONT DRAIN


Start by getting to the drain on the pump there should be a hose hooked to the pump and there may be a filter that u can clean out. Check the pipe and make sure it is clear and also check the discharge hose to be sure it is clear as well. By the way do u hear the pump come on or try to. If lines are clear and the pump is running then you most likely have a bad pump,

Are you saying it is draining the water properly? Because it sounds as though the pump is faulty. Every now and then you get pup motor that don't short out or stop completely they just don't drain we'll anymore. The drain period on your machine is timed so a slow drain may cause the error. So even though everything is clear and 'working' the pump needs replacing. Another cause would be a false reading from the pressure switch(level switch) but you would normally have problems with fill etc also, so unlikely.

Our WM2016CW machine's drain hose has a wire mesh filter on the end of it. The drain hose then is attached to a drain pipe which used to be connected to an old sink (no longer there). Is this mesh


This is not needed, It has been put in place maybe because of a tendency to get blockages in your drains? These machines break up the particles a lot to assist in removing them and resulting in less pump blockages so what used to collect in older machines pumps now goes down the drain.

Dishwasher stops working., all indicator lights go on and display shows OE


Hi


OE in your LG dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If it's still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My washer lg wd-3245rhd will not drain, not even from the manual hose close to pump filter.


You have 2 problems. The manual drain hose is plugged with debris and cannot drain out. You will have to pull the hose out and clean it out.
The other problem is the either drain filter is plugged or the drain pump is broken. You will have to pull the drain filter out and allow all the water to pour onto the floor to check the drain filter. If the drain filter is clean, then you have a broken drain pump and needs to be replaced.
Good luck

My lg washer and dryer wm3431hs isn't draining. I took of the hoses in the back, cleaned the filters and still nothing please help!


Hi

If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Hope this helps...
