LG Model WD-80130F - Water not draining out

My washing machine has stopped draining the water out and therefore does not complete the cycle. The machine stops and the lights just flash. I have drained the water and checked for anything that might have caused any blockages in the front of the machine as per the instructions booklet but have found nothing. There is also a noise which I can only guess is coming from the pump. It almost sounds like something stuck in there but don't know how to get to the pump to take a look.

The pump is usually located under the unit, attached to the motor or belt driven. If not sure, it should have two 1 1/2 inch hoses attached to it. Something may be stuck in it or the bearings maybe wore out & it needs replaced. Pumps are not that expensive. Powder detergent will wear them out faster also!

Why it fills with water and not wash


Belt might have broken or slipped off. Or the motor needs brushes.

Washing machine is showing error code CL


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. The fault specified seems an over load or over current in the motor. So remove motor and check to confirm.Make sure there is no jamming of the aggitator or the drive, and too much of load. Power off and reset.

I have an LG washer dryer combo model No. wd-1481rd, it will not drain on the display panel it has "OE" diplayed when put onto drain cycle i have tried to go through complete other cycles and...


Check for clogged/kinked drain hose then open the small door at the lower left of the machine. Located behind the small door is the drain filter and the emergency drain hose. Remove the drain plug and drain the water into a container that's enough to hold such. You may need to drain the water by gravity by placing the drain hose (main) over a container. Position the container as low as possible to extract as much water. Once fully drained, remove the drain filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Place a piece of the towel under the filter to catch residual water. Clean the filter and try to reach in the pump impeller and check it for restriction or damage. Replace the drain pump if the impeller is damaged or restricted and cannot be freed, or if it just whirs but water doesn't drain.

The water pump can be blocked and thus stop the machine from finishing the wash cycle. In front on the bottom there is as hatch that can be opened with a flat screwdriver, the small black rubber pipe can be used to first drain all the water before the opening the filter. Small objects such as coins coluld be found in here, blocking the pump. Clean the pump by removing these, optionally blowing into the outlet (yuck!), to dislodge anything. If that does not help to fix the problem, you can clean that actual water pump, but this requires you to use a screwdriver to remove the pump.

Tilt the machine on its side, the pump is attached with 3 self-tapping screws. (if you can't figure out what the pump is you should probably let a technician do this). The pump has 2 parts to it, take it apart carefully and clean out all the dirt that has accumulated in there. Plastic friendly, waterproof grease can be applied to the pump spindle and bearing if available.

If the problem still persists a new pump is available from LG at a reasonable cost.

My lg 7KG 1405F model in does not complete the washing cycle stops at rising (oe) is the code


OE is drain error, which means that the machine has detected that the water level is not lowering quickly enough...Probable cause is a blocked pump filter...Check via small door at floor level..Unscrew pump cover and clear filter....Remember that all water will drain from this point, so drain machine first...Leaning the machine back can help...Good luck....Nomess

Water pump failure?


The water pump drain motor has something stuck in it or it has gone bad like most LG parts.
Remove the drain pump and look for any foreign object to be removed.
Check the drain pump for a failed pump motor.
LG is pretty.

Water in and pumping out at the same time


Is it actually pumping the water out or may it be that your your outlet pipe have been placed too low in the out drain. This creates a syphon effect.

LG WT-R801 keeps draining


If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

Your problem is either in the control board or the water level switch.  The computer can't tell if the water has drained or the control board is stuck in the 8 minute drain cycle.  Recommend pulling the plug and wait 5 minutes to reset the computer.  If the problem persists, it will require an LG experienced tech to see what's going on.
