Re: water won't drain
Hi, Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. * Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. * Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. * Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. * If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump. Thank you !!

The lights that are blinking are indicating an error code--the particular code you describe is a "heater error". You will have to check the circuit for an open heater element, loose or broken wire, defective main control board. The part number for the main board is DE92-02256C. Hope I helped you!
In a consumer cycle, the appliance is indicating F8 E1 (slow/no draining). This is because of wrong signals from the circulation pump read by the control board and interpreted as "water present", when there is no water. During draining (and in fact, there is no water), the failure occurs.
1. Check if drain hose is not closed/clogged
2. Drain pump faulty, harness or wiring faulty, control board faulty
3. If machine is equipped with OWl, issue might be caused by damaged or dirty OWl. Clean the sensor lenses then , if issue is not solved, replace OWI (optical water indicator).
Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?
“F02” (Drain Problem) Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Is the drain hose kinked? Is the drain hose frozen? Is the drain hose clogged? Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor?
After running this check list, plug back up and try a complete cycle using cold water and no detergent. Sudding can mimic a drainage issue as well. make sure you are using the correct HE detergent to prevent over sudding.
This means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes and the water valves have turned off. After 4 minutes the suds error is displayed then 4 minutes later the F2 error. Potential causes 1.Check drain hose for kinks or cloggs 2.Check electrical connection at the pump and make sure the pump runs. 3.Check inside of pump for foreign objects 4.If none of the above fixes the machine replace the pump.
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.
