We have an LG front loader washing machine that will not spin even if we take all the clothes out of the machine. It might spin once or twice but then the LE code is displayed.

First lets be clear what letters you are seeing. capital letters I or L. I E is a water inlet error and LE is a locked motor error. since your motor is obviously not locked up it is your hall sensor that is on the motor. if you remove the rear panel you will see your direct drive motor on the tub. there is a 5 pin connector on it that is a hall sensor (4 wires) (this senses rotation speed and direction) White to gray is 10-15 Vdc, check the ohms with a multimeter white to red or blue should show 10Kohms. red and blue send a pulsating 10vdc signal back to the control during operation. check wires for wear and check for loose connection. you may find it necessary to contact LG for parts.

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

My front loader washer gets stuck on its last spin and wont drain properly. I am trying to wash a comforter and blanket. This is the 1st time its happened. Thank you


You may to mention the brand and model of machine. Mine is an Lg, I just shut off machine. Turn it back on and then press the no spin and start, this drains the washer. You may have too much clothes in the machine.

I bought the Whirlpool Duet to replace my old standard washer & dryer and I find that the wash time is longer than the old washer. Even the quick wash takes about 1 hour. Am I doing something wrong...


I assume from your comment that your old washer was a top loader. Yes, front loading machines typically have longer cycle times than top loaders. There are several contibuting factors... first of all, the wash action of a front load is to oscillate the drum back and forth as well as provide a slow tumbling motion whereas a top loader w/ agitator or impeller has a more aggressive action. The more aggressive action rolls and tumbles your clothes more often and therefore cleans faster. Also, because front loaders spin very fast (up to twice as fast as top loaders) to reduce the amount of moisture left in the clothes, they need to have balanced loads. They accomplish this by testing and rebalancing your load several times during each cycle before beginning to spin.

That was a long answer to your question- no, you are not doing anything wrong.

Good luck.

Clothes not clean after washing


Were the settings appropriate for the clothing?
The settings on the machine should be set properly for the load. Different fabric types require different wash/rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and wash times. Always follow the instructions printed on the fabric care label. The soil level needs to be set in accordance with the load type. Heavily soiled clothing will not come clean with a light soil level setting.
Was the proper detergent used?
If too much detergent is used, or non-HE detergent is used, the machine will not wash properly. Too many suds present during a wash decreases tumbling action and will not rinse out well. Furthermore, detergent residue built up in the machine over time will deposit extra detergent on clothes and deposit soil back into clothing.

Was the washer overloaded? If the machine is overloaded, the machine will not wash and rinse properly. When the washer is overloaded, the clothes have no room to tumble, and the cleaning performance of the washer is reduced. In addition, when the clothes are packed tightly inside the drum the detergent and water will not distribute evenly throughout the items.

Front loaders require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance. If this maintenance is not followed, residue can accumulate in the drum resulting in detergent and soil being deposited back into clothing. This can also lead to odor and other issues. Perform the required maintenance regularly (once or twice a month).
