Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi I bought this machine as not working for 1 dollar. And i love to tinker its a LG WF-T802 it has a small water leak from the water pump about 2 drops every second. but the bigger problem is, the water fill pressure switch isn't working it will overfill if I allow it, even on the small setting. Just wondering if this has to do with the water leak or the pressure switch? I do not get a error message on the control panel. Also should the tube from the pressure switch be one full unbroken tube? As this one has a short tube at the top and a red plastic adaptor (which is basically a tube with a hole in the middle) then a second tube down to the tube I haven?t seen this before, but I normally work on older machines so this maybe normal.

RE "it has a small water leak from the water pump about 2 drops every second."

Check the hose attachment to pump, if the hose is not leaking, then the pump must be replaced.

RE:"the bigger problem is, the water fill pressure switch isn\'t working it will overfill if I allow it,"

First blow in the tube and clean attachment, if that does not work replace the pressure switch, that is a cheap part. Part nr is 6600FA1704M. Here part at Au$42.
Here different seller.

RE:Also should the tube from the pressure switch be one full unbroken tube?
Not necessarily, this one is in two parts with a rubber joints.

I think that you will also appreciate service manual and part list, available for free clicking here (select GET MANUAL in opening page).

In case this was helpful, please do not forget to accept.

My washing machine LG WD1238C keeps showing error message OE hose is not blocked or filter blocked does not finish any cycle or work correctly

This sounds like a blockage in the small hose connected to the waste pump. Take the lid off and find the waste pump down near the bottom of the machine below the drum, then remove any one of the hoses connected to the waste pump and check inside the pump to make sure the fan can spin using your fingures, maybe a small kids sock or similar jammed in there, if nothing in the pump check both pipes on the waste pump

WF 860 Has F05 Wont drain

HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Water leaking

Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely you will have to get under to check it out. Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides Do a wash and repeat. But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.
