SOURCE: water gets drain cannot remain

The drain is pull the knob which will pull up the drain valve. So if this is not working then the connecting bowden is broken and is not connecting the link to the bottom drain valve.
Look at the bottom and connect. Clean the drain valve, if choked.

If the sound is a grinding noise, this is usually a symptom of a gear case (transmission) going bad. However, it could also indicate a motor coupling that's starting to fail. If you look under the washer check for any drips or puddles of oil. If you find any, the transmission has begun leaking and needs to be replaced. If you find a black powdery looking substance, this is an indication of a motor coupling that is failing. I hope this may help you. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: my lg washing machine is a semi automatic model

Sounds like a pump or drain hose blockage.. Check filter. Could also be the pump motor. The more resent synchronous pump motors get detritus inside them and gradually 'gunk up'. You may be able to drain the machine by lowering the drain hose and allowing gravity to help. this won't work if the drain hose is mounted high at rear of machine......Nomess

SOURCE: My LG washing machine smells like rotten eggs when

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Washer first!
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

The other possibilty for the source of the smells is the u-bend into which the washer drain goes. Either its own 'u-tube' or maybe it shares a sink's?

Dryer now-
Does that have a clear filter? I don't know your particular model but if it is like ours it may have a double heating element, one for 'low' and both for 'high'. If so it could be that the 'high' element has failed and everything is being dried on 'low'.

Hope this assists you with both and good luck!

LG washing machine model WP 8003 draing slowly during washing,how to rectify.


The drive belt could be slipping or you have a partial blockage in the pump intake/discharge/hoses. Remove from power, remove front or back depending on model. Look at the belt while its draining for any slippage. If that's ok, remove power and inspect/flush out hoses, inspect pump impeller and intakes for clogging, broken or cracked blades etc, replace as needed. Don't overlook the possibility the system its draining into could also be clogged, P trap, etc.

Dryer not working


Please mention the model of the machine. If this is a semi type then the motor or the timer switch can be faulty or if this is an automatic type it can be a fault on the program timer unit.
