Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

LG WASHER/DRYER I have an LG washer /dryer - don't have the model # handy , but looks like an older version of the WM3431HW - front loader. The last couple of weeks I am getting a loud gurgling noise which seems to be getting louder -on the dry cycle - right before it is about to spin . I am not getting any codes on the display , and I cleaned out the filter in the front (with the hose that comes with it) . Hopefully something I can repair on my own ? - thanks - Paul

Try checking the back, there is a plastic tub that is connected to the drying system and it can get clogged with lint etc. It will also cause the unit to give you longer drying times. It is a poor design. You can also pop off the lid to get a better look but make sure you unplug the unit.

Hi, I have LG washer and dryer combo WM3431HW. How can i remove lifter (part#4432er2004a) from drum, and is there a substitute part? Thanks.


When I check your model number, the lifter comes up as part # MFE38265101
Changing one,...... oh, you really got to want to. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10 for repairs on this washer / dryer combo, I would rate it about a 10. Basically, you have to remove the motor, remove the entire outer drum, seperate the halves of the outer drum allowing removal of the inner drum, and eventually removal of the lifter from the back side of the inner drum. If you can do the job in under two hours I think you would set a world record.

Where can i find a free service manual for LG WM3431HW?


Unfortunately you won't find one.

LG only supply their servicing manuals to their repair centres and strictly enforce their copyright, so the manuals are not available to the public and when they do occasionally appear the material has been stolen.

Usually I'd recommend a generic repair manual such as the one by Haynes, but LG's direct drive system and a number of other unique technical features mean that the Haynes book isn't as useful as it could be. The WM3431HW is a large capacity and technically advanced washer dryer so it's certainly not as straightforward to service as a traditional front loading washer or dryer. Many LG spare parts can also be difficult to source outside of their own approved servicing organisation.

I respectfully suggest that you either get LG to fix your machine or post a question on this site describing the problem to see if we can assist you.

Lp conversion for LG dryer


After removing the three screws which pass through the L bracket into the back of the dryer:
Stand in front of the dryer and (using the palms of your hands) give the top a sharp push back on the dryer top at the left and right side of the top. The top should slide back 1 to 2 inches. Now lift the top off.

If you post again with further questions, make sure to post under the model number you have. (you posted using a combo washer / dryer, and stated you are converting to LP, which combo units are not gas.)

Dryer capacity


Yes, a full size dryer as yours is easily capable of drying a full sized load from the washer you mentioned. The wash tubs in the new model washers and dryers still maintain a standard size. For example, the front loader dryer that I purchased to match my front loader washer is completely identical to earlier standard models without all the fancy packaging. I could have saved some money and purchased only the washer, but...the wife needed a matching pair.

Now, you will still have to properly sort items to ensure they dry efficiently. A copy of your dryer owner's manual will describe this to you. I'm not here to give you lessons in how to dry your clothes, but if you do not own a copy of your manual and would like to refer to it, you can obtain a copy at geappliances.com. Just look under the "Service and Support" section for "Use and Care Manuals". Just type in your model number and your owner's manual is availble in a downloadable .pdf format.

The point I'm attempting to make here is that although you can place a full load from your washer in the dryer, if you do not properly separate certain items, they will not dry properly. I did not want you to think this was a cause of the appliance.

In addition, make sure the dryer vent ducting is properly cleaned and not clogged anywhere. This can also contribute to longer dry times.

I know you were only asking a simple question. I just wanted to be thorough in case additional question may arise. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Type of detergent


You can use either but it must be "HE" or high efficiency soap for front loaders. It will be marked with an HE symbol on the container.

Can I stack my Kenmore washer (front loader) and dryer?


They can be stacked, but you will have to purchase a special kit to do it. Sears should be able to order the kit for you. Without the kit, when the washer goes into spin, the dryer will fall off (not good at all). Good Luck!!! Jim
