It is very common for the drain or drain screen to become plugged. It is not as rare but is very possible that something has gotten lodged in the pump and could block it from spinning. Most often the drain or the screen is plugged.

Trying to find pump.


Hi - I understand you will like to know where to find pump and check for clogs. Try the following steps below and hope it is helpful:

To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain you will use a pipe auger (snake). Start at the roof plumbing vent and drop cable to roughly 10 or 15 feet past the actual drain. If there is a clog present, the snake will bring up a chunk of debris. Remove it from the top of the vent and discard.

The drain hose is visible toward the bottom of this washing machine. It is held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.

Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws. When a drain backup occurs, pieces of debris can lodge in the hose, causing clogs and odors.

Soak the hose in a bucket of warm bleach water.

Soak the drain hose in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1 cup of bleach. Look to see if the line is free of obstructions. Run a small length of clothes hanger through the hose to clear any hard debris.

Reattach drain hose and connect to drain pipe.

Reattach the drain hose using a screwdriver or pliers. Insert the hose into the washing machine drain. Be sure it is all the way into the drain opening.

Run the washer through a full cycle with 2 cups of bleach added.

Cycle the washer with warm water and 2 cups of bleach. The bleach will help remove any odor-causing particles in the machine and drain hose. Running the washing machine through a cycle will help flush away any remnants of the drain pipe clog.

AFTER 15 MINUTE FROM OPERATION I SEE ON SCREEN SEMBOLE LE AND MACHINE STOP


Please check on the error codes list for LG machines and confirm if the codes seen is LE.
http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6333

Since the machine shuts down after working for few minutes , it is possible that it shuts at the time of drain and the suspect can be a damaged or clogged drain pump.
So check the voltage on the drain pump at this time to confirm
Thank you for using Fixya

Altus washing machine 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.

3. Drain Filter
Check the drain filter for clogs as well. This filter can become clogged overtime, preventing the free flow to exit the drain tube. It is located inside the unit, mounted on the pump housing.

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

NOTE-If the hoses filter,and pump check out ok, this will confirm that there is a serious within the actual control sector(Timer module or control board). It should be replaced i this case.

E20 error when starting tumble dry cycle


E20 on your machine means some sort of Drain problem. If it actually goes through the Spin cycle o.k. then there is most likely some water still not drained out at the time of the tumble dry. Check the drain to make sure it isn't clogged. also the drain hose.
