Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher

I unscrewed the lower panel on the front and cleaned out the large black round cap on my LG Tromm Washer. I blow thru the small rubber hose and it sounds clear. I am still getting the OE when getting to the rinse/spin cycle.

As you know OE is drain error. you still have a drain problem and this could be because the pump impeller has a coin or similar jamming it, or it could be that the pump motor itself is failing. If the drain hose is clear and not kinked and the pump is working the machine should drain........Good luck....Nomess

I had the same problem. Everything was clear as far as hoses and button trap goes. I removed the pump motor and had it tested at the appliance store. It did work but it was not running at a high rpm so technician said motor was probably bad. So I gambled and bought a new pump motor and installed it. Works like a charm now.

Our LG Tromm WM1814CW frontload washer is not draining in the spin cycle, but its only sometimes. We have tried cleaning the Filter and its clear, we looked in where the filter is to see if its clogged,...

hi Shellinator7.
check the small drain hose on the side of the pump that is clogged, then that is not a failure that will significantly affect the normal operation of the washer. If your washer is not draining okay and you don't mind catching some water that spills out of that pump filter area when you open it up, then you don't necessarily need to remove that front panel and bother with unclogging that small drain hose. If the large hose between the tub and the pump or the discharge hose between the pump and the house drain behind the washer is clogged, then you may need to open up that cabinet.

"OE" error message appearing at end of rinse cycle before spin

on the front lower left there is a panel. Pry it open from the top. Unscrew the large black round cap. Be prepared for water to rush out. There is a trap to clean out. To the left there is a rubber hose with a plug in the end. Remove plug and see if hose is clogged. Clean it out. Replace and it should run. If not, try blowing through the discharge hose in the back to make sure all is clear. If not??

Water is leaking from the bottom and does not discharge from drain hose

Part of the problem is that your filter is clogged. Remove the front bottom panel by unscrewing 3 small screws at the base. At the lower right, there is a filter cap that you need to unscrew by hand. Be sure to put a small pail before you unscrew it because a lot of water will come out. Then clean the filter and screw it back in.

In terms of the leaking, that started with my washer just recently. It's not the filter....think it's the rubber seal in the front. If you pull back the rubber, there are small drainage holes that can get clogged. Cleaning helps, but doesn't solve it.

How do you drain the drain pump in lg front load washer washer spilling the water that is inside

There is a small panel on the bottom left front of the washer with a tab on the top middle holding it onto the front of the washer. depress this tab with a small flathead screwdriver and the panel will open downward. You will now see a small round black piece on the left with a flat screw head on it, about an inch in diameter. unscrew this about a quarter of a turn and it will come out with a small hose attached. This is connected to the drain pump. Have a shop vac ready, pull the black plug out of the hose and this will drain the pump. The larger round piece on the right, about 3 inches in diameter is your drain pump. After draining all the water unscrew it with your hand. When you get this out it will have a screen attached which needs to be cleaned at least once a year.

Washer wont go through spin cycle

Bent pinched or clooged drain hose. Other cause may be the drain filter in the front of the machine. (The small door on the lower left of the machine) With a pan, remove the cap and drain water from the small tube. Then open the larger cap and clean out the lint. This should solve the problem.
