Question about LG WM-0532HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Too much soap?

What kind of damage is caused to a machine like LG WM-0532HW if too much soap is used. Our machine is having trouble turning. We can put less and less into it at one time without the machine stopping with water in it. If we put a fitted bottom sheet in it, the smaller artlicles bunch up inside of it. The machine stops until we untangle and start over again. Could this problem be caused by too much soap? Can it be repaired?

I have an LG washer that is about 10 years old. Never had a problem with it until today. Several minutes into the wash cycle, the drum tries to turn but can't. It makes a high pitched sound and tries to...


Your guess seems right as the damaged zipper could be stuck within the drum or movement and could cause friction to the movement. You can remove power and try to check on the free movement of the drum, if not the drum assembly must be removed and reset.

Just ran a load of laundry and "LE" came up on screen and I cant


Been doing a lot of clothes today?
Do you use more than a teaspoon of HE soap?
Washer been growling like a grizzly?
Those are signs of a overheated hall sensor.
These machines only use a gallon of water.
Any overage of soap will cause a suds lock.
The motor will try and FIX it by dumping extra water in and doing more work. Till finally an LE error will be declared.
If you are confident you are not overdoing the soap thing then you need to take a look at the wiring between the control and motor. It is a strong possibility the harness connection has vibrated lose OR you have a broken wire between the control and motor. If you want a service manual let me know.

Moldy smelling clothes


First, clean your washer with one of the front load washer cleaners on the market. (Affresh, washer magic, smellywasher cleaner, whirlaway hot tub cleaner, or Tide front load washer cleaner) Use the longest, hottest cycle your washer has, with no clothes.
Second, rewash the smelly clothes with the heavy wash cycle and a second rinse option, using no soap or fabric softener. This will remove the soap and/or fabric softener build up in the clothes which is causing the smell. Third, begin using one to no more than two tablespoons of HE soap per load, and not more than 1 teaspoon full of fabric softener if you use it. This is because top load washers used up to 45 gallons of water per load, and your front load machine is only using about 12 gallons total. If you are washing a load of bath towels (which were only used to dry off your clean body, not wipe up the floor or something like that) they are not really dirty,...... for washing "clean" towels, don't use any soap, and of course never use fabric softener on towels.
