I have had my LG Steam Washer for 1 1/2 years. Is steam suppose to spray from the nozzle at the top of the drum where the water spray is located? I can here the steam reservoir fill up and but I really never see steam spray into the drum. Is my steamer not functioning properly?

TE is a Thermistor error. This can be a shorted Thermistor and or a bad heater element. These items are located at the front bottom of the washer's tub. If you have a washer with steam function. It could also be the steam generator's thermistor and or a bad heater element. The steam generator is located just behind the dispenser’s housing on the top left side. I can get you part numbers is you need them.
After a time the small hose that comes from the pump area to the pressure switch located at the top of the machine can clog.
Unplug the machine.
Remove the top or the back of the washer.
Locate the pressure switch near the top of the washer. It is about 4 in round and has wires and a 1/4 inch black tube attached to it.
Pull the tube from the switch and blow through the tube until clear.
Reassemble, plug in and test.
2/3 of the drum to the top loosly packed.... no more than that ... the clothes have to drop from the top and down to wash properly, and if overloaded you can rip the front boot off.....300 dollar repair....use he detergents and only use 1/5 of the cap as you have very little water in the washer.....Try to do atleast 2 hot loads a week to avoid mold and mildew smells and buildup....I have been fixing washers for 14 years please follow my advice
The steam will only run on certain cycles. If you look at your dial you will see a pink line which indicates which one. Your unit does have a recirculatting pump, maybe you are confusing the two. One way to check is to run a delicate cycle. During the operation press the wash/rinse and soil level buttons together. Hold them, a display will pop up with readings in the second coloumn, and second row it will display the tempurature of the steam generator in ceilsus. This will confirm whether or not it is on.
This problem happened to us too, fortunately it's quite easy to repair. The problem may lie with the water inlet solenoid (rear of machine, top left under the top cover). The cold water inlet to condense the steam may not be working correctly and the steam comes out of the detergent drawer. Replace this solenoid (bank of three on the water inlet) and this should solve your problem.
