Question about LG WM2016C

Open Question

I have had my LG WM2016CW for just over two years. For several months the hot water hose would "squeal" while in use like there was air in the line. I have tightened it more and more and now I have water leaking out of the bottom of the washer that appears to be dripping from the hot water connection inside the washer. I'm assuming the connector or hose needs to be replaced. I didn't buy extended coverage for warrenty, is there still some type of manufactures warranty that would cover this? Is this an easy repair that I can do myself and not void anything? Do I need to call a repair person to fix it?

SOURCE: LG WD-8016C Front Load Washer leaks from the bottom

Crawls, usually all leaks are visible. Im surprised the repairman did not actually get to the source of it. Your drain pump sits on the bottom and it possibly could be the filter cap, hoses to the pump or pump itself. Another area to check is the despensor. There are a number of hoses to this which could be leaking. The bellow itself could have a cut in it somewhere along the bottom. I would call the repairman back and have him at least get to the source of the leak...Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

Why not try to clean these with a little CLR lime and rust remover and see if that does the trick....

SOURCE: LG Washer leaking water underneath

Some times a water valve can have a leak inside the machine coming out the bottom.

Also make sure the filter in the front lower left corner is tight in the housing.

Tub inside could be damaged from shipping.

Sears should be able to fix you up.

Washer from flashing 1E & leaking


LG Washing Machine Displaying Fault Code IE or 1E WM2016CW WATER INLET ERROR // Water not entering washing machine correctly
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

Our WM2016CW machine's drain hose has a wire mesh filter on the end of it. The drain hose then is attached to a drain pipe which used to be connected to an old sink (no longer there). Is this mesh


This is not needed, It has been put in place maybe because of a tendency to get blockages in your drains? These machines break up the particles a lot to assist in removing them and resulting in less pump blockages so what used to collect in older machines pumps now goes down the drain.

Squeals when hot water inputs


Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

Water filter at inlet hose on LG WM2016CW


Following a 1E error I found the gaskets in both supply hoses had perished and the debris had blocked the mesh inlet filters, causing the grinding noise that the pump makes when it can't get water. The original LG filters are indeed removable, in bits. Their little plastic tag for pulling them out snaps off so you end up digging the filter out, just be careful 'cos there's another mesh behind the filter on the hot and there's a rubber seal behind the cold one. Easiest thing is to forget replacing them with original parts and get the old fashioned kind from Lowes etc, $2 for a 3 pack, these fit into the end of the supply hose and are a rubber gasket with mesh in the middle so you won't even need to buy gaskets to replace the ones that fell apart.

LG Tromm Not Dispensing Bleach


My wife has been complaining that the bleach and fabric softener dispenser still had water in it after washing. After removing the top to the washer I found that there are 4 components to the dispenser. 1. the solenoid (part of a 3 solenoid bundle) for the cold water, 2 the controller to the solenoid 3. The hose from the solenoid to the dispenser, and 4. The dispenser. After checking that there were no kinks in the hoses. I checked the solenoid found it had power at the right time but the flow was low. I shut off all the water and disconnected the lines going into the back of the washer I found that the cold water filters were clogged. After cleaning them (there were 2 for each hot and cold) The washer worked correctly.

LG WM2016CW front load washer


Check to make sure that the filters in the water valves are not clogged up.  Go behind the machine, turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses on the machine side.  Look inside the water valves and check the filter screens to make sure they're clean.  Get a large bucket and open the water valve to clear out the hoses and make sure you have good water flow coming out of the hoses.  If both of those situations are cleared up, your machine should work properly.
