Question about LG Washing Machines

Open Question

I own a LG WD-1290RD 9kg wash/ 5kg Dryer. The problem I have is the lint does not fall down to the lint basket but gets stuck inside the rubber of the tub. What is the best way to clean it? Is there a way to take the rubber away from the barrel? We find it extremely difficult to get lint and we find water does not drain from the fabric softner dispenser. Is there a blockage and how do we clean it?

SOURCE: Tricity Bendix washer won't take fabric softner in rinsing cycle

Your machine possibly has a defective water inlet valve which is preventing water from entering the dispenser channel to flush the fabric softner into the machine. The inlet valve in inside of your machine right where the washer hoses attach. the solenoid valves on the inlet will need to be checked with a multimeter to verify if they are working properly.

SOURCE: fabric softner

Remove the dispenser tray. Inspect the area just above the fabric softener portion of the dispenser. There should be a series of holes where water feeds into the tray during the rinse cycle. Sometimes these holes become clogged with fabric softener residue. If the holes are clogged, water will never dispense the fabric softener out and it will stay in the tray. If you take some cotton swabs and meticulously clean all the holes out, I bet your problem will go away. Let me know if this was helpful to you.

SOURCE: Fabric Sofner won't dispense

hi there remove the soap drawer then remove the cover over the softener compartment you will more than likely find a blockage in the cover siphon or the down tube on the drawer

SOURCE: Fabric softner is building up in dispenser

Same deal - I have to soak up all the residual water in the softener dispenser between washes. (The detergent and bleach compartments are fine).

Where is the lint collector on LG 7.5g model WD 1049C Front Loader washing machine.


The combo washer/dryer doesn't have a lint collector. Air is circulated through a condensate tube and is washed down during each drying cycle.

Hi I have an LG WD-1290RD and it won't spin at all - any ideas?


Possible that the main program controller is faulty if there is no output to the inlet valve or the motor. If not the motor can be stuck or the motor start capacitor is faulty.
Please check on these tips.

Lint basket keeps falling out during drying.


Bent the spring tabs to tighten the hold of the basket to back of the drum . If that doesn't work you will have to buy a new one. I found that a lot are damaged by heat.

LG FRont Load Washer Dryer WD-1256RD filling up with lint


If you have not done it already, replace the lint filter. Follow instructions on manual. The lint filter access should be on front side of machine.

Other users had same problem on this model, I quote:
"I've only had it 2 weeks so far. It seems to be collecting lint/fluff all around the rubber door lining"
Source here.

Sometimes there may be too much lint if you use excessive softener and detergent.

LG WD-12331. Front load washer and dryer machine


since it is a washer-dryer, the lint trap is in line with the drain. you have to empty the drain basket. there's an access door on the bottom left, first take the little tube out and drain the remaining water, then open the large drain cap to the right and clean out the trap. once you're done put it all back together and it should work. you're supposed to do this every few months. It was too much for me to deal with so i ended up buying a separate dryer and just use the washer .

Unplug the unit to reset the computer.  Wait 5 minutes.  If the problem still occurs, you will need to have the control board replaced.
