Question about LG WM1812C Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Missing drain hose

When I moved into my apartment and examined the LG front-loader washer/dryer, I noticed that the little hose you're supposed to use to drain the water before you empty the lint trap was missing. So now every time I want to empty the lint filter, I have to put down a towel to catch the deluge of water. Could the hose have retracted back into the machine? If so, is there any way for me to retrieve it myself?

Thanks!

Yes, there are 2 ways to do it.  The easiest way works only if the washer is NOT on a pedestal.  Pull the washer out and tilt it back.  Have someone you trust hold the washer leaned back while you crawl underneath the unit. Look for the 3/8" rubber hose and just shove it back into the hole where the drain hose is supposed to go.  If that doesn't work, then you will have to disassemble the top, the control panel and the front panel to get to the hose.

It's very common for the sump hose to have a hole in it causing it to leak. The quickest way check is to tip the washer back and examine the sump hose by stretching it, as you stretch the hose you should find your leak. You'll also want to check the door gasket for cuts and the drain pump assembly for leaks. Let me know what you find.

MY LG WASHER WONT DRAIN, IT SAYS THE ERROR MESSAGE


OE is a drain error - Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

Re: lg wm1812


There is a vent at the back of the machine near the top that is covered by a small round white plastic cross pattern. Inside of the machine there is a black flexible hose that attaches to the vent from the top of the outer tub. inside of the tub attachment point is supposed to be a light blue plastic valve that looks like an old style army helmet on a peg. The peg fits into a flange in the opening on the outer tub. If this valve is missing water will escape from the vent on the back of the machine. Another likely point of water leak is a loose inlet hose or missing washer on the inlet hose.
