LG WM-2277HW Water overflowing from soap drawer (compartment)

I got an IE error message and was welcomed by a flooded floor. My drain pump filter was full of lint & garbage. I cleaned out the filter and tried to run the washer. After a minute or two water pores out of the soap compartment drawer.

The water dispenser compartment is connected to a hose. Disconnect the hose where it attaches to the tub. You will find a gray mushroom valve, remove this completely or you can just cut back the rubber that covers the stem halve way. What is happening is the valve is getting stuck in the up postion, and causing the water to poor out the front. You should also be running a hot wash every so often to clean out the unit.

LG washer WM 2277HW Wont spin LE on control panel


LG error codes:
IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain
FE: Overflow issue drain pump running to comp
PE: pressure sensor (sensor out)
dE: door error. open door. switch is out

bE: Ball sensor loose connection/out of order
EE: eeprom out test mode only
PF: power failure momentary interruption of shocktricity

LG washer notes:
Problem:
An occasional LE error but always a slow or no spin.
Solution:
A Red wire going to the Hall sensor was intermittent. You can test this from the main board connector down to the connector on the hall sensor by checking continuity. There is an intermediate connector down by the motor/hall sensor so you can isolate the problem even more. Problem was in the short wire harness that connects directly to the motor and hall sensor. Could not find the open point of the wire so added a new red wire and integrated it into the harness.

OE error message checked drain hose for kinks drain hose is clear


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. As you have already checked the drain hose and it is clear so check the drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. If the problem is still there after cleaning then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I am getting a FE erroe on my LG WM-2277 HW Washer? What Part do I need?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. FE is Overflow error which means that the water is overflowing and the water level frequency is over 213. When FE error is displayed the drain pump operates to drain the water automatically. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the water inlet valve and pressure sensor which can sense the water level in the tub, if any of this goes bad overflow occurs. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Soap drawer is filled with water


Our 2 year old washer just started seeing this problem. After removing the detergent dispenser drawer from the washer, cleaning it and cleaning the slot it came from we stopped seeing water retention.
