How do I open to remove the water on an LG tromm front load washing machine to repair/replace the pump?

LG machines normally have a small diameter rubber pipe folded up in the drain pump basket area on the lower left side of the front panel.
Pull out the pipe and remove the small plastic end stopper to allow the water in the tub to drain.

Replace the boot with new. While you have top and front off to replace boot, hose the drum down with a hose on stream. Remove filter clean out as you hose it down. Btw, there is no cleaning off the boot if it has mildew/mold on it.. it's slightly porous and no eliminating it

Front loader has stopped mid wash and red light has come on saying clean my pump. How do I do this?

Not knowing which model you have makes it a bit difficult. Most front loaders have a little trap door down on the front panel somewhere. Behind this door is access to the pump filter. Usually, it just unscrews, and you pull it out. If your machine is full of water, expect a mess. remove any buildup of fluff, foreign objects etc. If your machine has no trap or access. Unplug the machine and drag it away from the wall. Lean the machine back against the wall to gain access underneath. You should be able to see a large hose from the tub to the front ( or side) of the pump. They are usually held on by a spring clip. Slide the clip back or unscrew the clip to enable you to pull the hose off the pump. Clean out any foreign objects you find. As before, if the machine is full of water, expect a mess. Front loader drain hoses usually exit out the top of the machine so lying the end of the drain hose on the ground wont drain the water.

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...

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

"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??

How do i clean my filter for my lg washer

On the front bottom left is a small access paner about 5 x3 1/2 in. Gently pop it open from the top. Tou will see a black drain hose with a plug in the end. Place a pan on the floor and remove the plug and drain the resudial water from the machine until it stops. Then, unscrew the filter in the same opening counter clockwise to remove it. Clean and replace in the reverse order installing plug in hose and do not over tighten filter. Run a load and check for leaks and replace panel.

Kenmore front loader not draining or doing a "real" spin cycle


There are several ways to fix this problem, we need to check first the parts before we do a hard troubleshooting. Check this parts first.

Inspect the drain hose for kinks
Test the timer control
Test the lid switch(some models)
Inspect the water pump
Inspect the driver belt(belt drive only)
Inspect the motor coupler

Those are the parts that we need to check

If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

Good luck !

LG tromm front loader OE

All of the ways to solve this problem are right on--take the filter out (in front on the bottom left when facing the machine). Before you do, take time to drain out the water with the hose below. Once drained open the filter and clean out. Try on speed wash with no spin. Nine minutes in you will know if the drain works. If not, turn on side and remove the washer pump. To do this, remove the hoses first starting with clamps. Then remove the three screws in front where the filter is. It easily comes out. The top pump is the drain pump. First mark the wires--blue is positive and black is negative. Remove the pump and clean out.The pump comes out of the casing. Try removing this and cleaning. If you have a power source, test the pump. If works, put back and start in fast cycle with no spin. If not, then you have to replace the drain pump. You will not find anyone in town the has the pump unless you live in New York or Dallas Texas. To get the pump at a reasonable price and expedited call and order through Sears at 18004881222. These guys are good and well get it to you as promised. The entire job once recieved the pump took about 30 minutes. Also, saved about $100 in labor. Good luck and hope this helps...
