Hi

Since you have lots of problem in your machine I am trying to answer you one by one….
Check if the screws to the door hinges are tight and if any are missing. If it is so then it would not allow the door to be level and thus not be able to push the switch all the way down. This tells the washer the door is closed and if it is not closed it wont continue with the rinse cycle. Or maybe you are rinsing on cold water temperature and the cold side of the water valve is plugged up with sediment. If this is your problem, you can turn off the cold water supply and remove the hose end at the water valve side and clean out the filter screen that’s caked up.
For suds remaining in the machine it is cause the machine may not be draining and spinning due to a foreign object in your pump. For front loaders the filter for the pump is on the bottom right of the front panel of the machine.Turn the machine off.
Take the round cover off the filter by levering the top section of the cover.
Turn the filter so that you can remove it. There may be something stuck in there. Ensure it is clean and free of debris.
You will see the propeller type part that sits behind the filter, give it a little turn to ensure it is turning freely.
Replace the filter securely and the cover.

Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder). The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and the hose wasn't wide enough. Un dissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor hot water pressure can block this hose solid. (Note: water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning)
Finally, black gunges in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunges, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems.
Let us know if you want something more else please accept the solution.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Lg front loading washer flasing LE and stops midcycle


In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

It stops mid cycle and at the digital display it flashes " LE " . What is wrong????


The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error.

HI, this is a Door Open Error.

Possible Causes are..-

* Door not all the way closed
* Loose electrical connections at door switch and pwb assembly(Control Board)
* Door switch assembly is out of order(Miss aligned)

Most common issue here will be a defective door lock switch. check all causes before replacing the switch.

The selector for the spin cycle intermittently does not work


Yes. It is a timer. A lot of time though, the washer stop because the lid control switch is open. I means the washer has a sensor to stop when the lid is open or when the spin go widely unbalanced. Sometimes this sensor is too sensitive to vibration and stop the machine. The switch is in the back just behind the timer.

Buttons not working on lg washer


Sounds like the display board has a malfunction in the button controls and needs to be replaced.  Call a qualified LG tech to have it replaced and that should take care of the problem.
