LG WT-R801 keeps draining

Hi just installed new drain pump, problem is now it just keeps draining, even if i start a wash, water pours in but keeps pumping the water out. I have switched the wires around thinking i might have put the wires on the wrong way, but no difference just keeps draining non-stop, any help be appreciated.

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

I have LG fyzzy logic 6.5 kg WFS65AO1DCT and it keeps loading and draining water even when in spin


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine. Next is the drain hose is to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your homes plumbing. If the drain hose does not have an air gap aroung it, it can cause a siphon effect and start draining your machine as it fills. If none of these are the problem and your drain pump is running at the same time it is filling you will need to replace the control. For top load machines follow this video and for front load machines follow the tutorial.

My LG turbodrum 8.0 WT - R801 wont empty the water. No drain appears on the control panel. Could you please offer some advice. Thankyou Karen


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

LG WT-R801 does not pump out the water while in rinse cycle, I have to put down the Hose on floor.


You may have a broken drain pump and will need to be replaced. Check the filter screen on the bottom left corner to be sure it's clean.
Good luck

My washer lg wd-3245rhd will not drain, not even from the manual hose close to pump filter.


You have 2 problems. The manual drain hose is plugged with debris and cannot drain out. You will have to pull the hose out and clean it out.
The other problem is the either drain filter is plugged or the drain pump is broken. You will have to pull the drain filter out and allow all the water to pour onto the floor to check the drain filter. If the drain filter is clean, then you have a broken drain pump and needs to be replaced.
Good luck

LG WT-R852 washing cycle never finish. It will keep repeating cycle until OE error sign shows up.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. OE is a Drain Error which indicates that the water was not fully drained within 10 minutes. To start with check the drain pump filter for any clogs/foreign materials and try to clean the filter. Also if you have already checked the drain hose for any blockage then check the pump for any blockages, if still its not resolved then it seems to be the pump that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out


If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board
