SOURCE: LG washing machine, WM 1371(6)FHB, 7 years old,

Some of the LG washers have a 10 year warranty on the motors and your issue could be fixed for free by LG if your problem is the motor.

Open the door of the washer and spin the inner tub fast and listen to find out if you hear a bearing or if it is the motor.

If the bearing is bad, labor and parts would be around $490 - $700. This is a major repair because the bearing is sold with the back half of the outter tub assy. So, you just cannot replace the bearing.

If its the motor, call LG about a posible warranty repair.

Good luck.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you CLean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I have an LG Intellowasher - WM-1372 FHB, the door release hook has broken off, so the washingmachine door will not close or lock. What can I do? Can I purchase a replacement door for this model. Please...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. Alternately you could try telephone directories (Yello Pages?) for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

LG washing machine, WM 1371(6)FHB, 7 years old, sounds like main bearing on the way out. Is it economical to repair? I'm mechanically/electrically competent.

WD8074-FHB washing machine SE on display


LG washing machine error code SE indicates a “motor fault” although the code also says it could be a main PCB fault.
They recommend to... “try the motor first”.
It’s vague and you really need an engineer to try and sort this one.

You can’t possibly justify “trying the motor first” if you are a DIYer unless you at least know how to test a motor for faults and check its connections.

LG Intello 7KG Washing Machine


You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.
