LG WM1832CW Drain Pump

I am wondering if anyone can tell me how we can gain access and possibly remove the drain pump from our LG WM1832CW. It doesn't seem like there is a way to remove the front cover and it is very hard accessing the pump from the back of the machine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I drained it first with the pull out hose in the access panel on the bottom left. i tilted the washer back to remove it from the bottom.

The grey drain hose split, anyone know how to replace this? Is it attached to the drain pump in the front? Also discovered that black drain tube is clogged at the front filter. This tube seems to be...

the drain hose is indeed attached to the pump area... sounds like you may be on well water if it is breaking the hose down that bad... if not that is unusual to have hoses break down like that... its not hard to replace the hose as they just have hose clamps on them ,but yes you do have to tear apart unit to get down to drain pump assembly... some of the units have a front kick plate you can remove to get to them and some you actually go into from the rear... i didn't look this model up but we work on all appliances and normally there is a way to access the drain pump.... some units front loaders you can actually tilt up and the bottom plate will remove to gain access to it also... just going to have to look around and make access the easiest way for you... once your in though it is a simple task to replace hose...

My LG is a few years old, Model WM1832CW and seems to work in all modes except rinse. It just started this morning and sounds like its slipping and grinding and won't pump the water out. any suggestions....

Replace the pump motor. On your model, it can be done without removing the front panel. Open access door at bottom left of front panel. drain water out small hose. remove screw from plastic recess and use putty knife at side of recess to remove plastic recess. remove screw holding pump. pull machine out 2 feet from wall and tilt it back to rest back edge against wall. depress plastic tab in base to release pump. remove hoses and unplug electrical connection to pump. remove 3 screws holding pump motor to pump housing. install new pump motor and re-assemble.

I neet o replace drain pump on a LG wm1832cw model

its not easy, but you'll have to lay the washer on its back and take off the crate like bottom panel. Discontect all the hoses. Disconnect the electrical line going to the pump. If you can, try and seperate the pump motor from the housing by unscrewing two screws on the housing, which will seperate the motor from the housing, If you cant get to it, I actually broke the screws on the drain filter housing to get it loose. I secured it back with the other front loading screw and some gorilla glue, shouldnt be a problem. I should at least get another 6 years out of this pump. Good luck.

LG WM-2277HB washer does not drain and make rattling noise.

You will need to replace the drain pump motor. The pump impeller has separated from the motor shaft. You can push it back on, but it will just come off again. I have not tried adding adhesive because I didn't want a call back. That may work if you want to try it. To replace pump motor:
Take the rectangular recess out by using a putty knife on the left or right side, Remove phillips screws mounting pump. Pull machine forward about two feet to allow you to tilt the machine back to lean it against the wall. Reach under to access the pump. It is held in place by a plastic tab you can depress to remove, but if you break the tab, don't worry, as the mounting screws will hold your pump in place just fine when reinstalled. Remove pump by disconnecting hoses and electrical plug. Change out pump motor (three phillips head screws)

LG front loader drain pump

Easiest way is to use a putty knife on the left and right side of the lower left access panel on front of the machine to remove the rectangular inset. (might have to remove a screw first) Next, pull machine out about 18 inches from the wall and tilt it back so you will be able to reach under machine. Next, remove the phillips screws you can see now that the plastic recess has been removed (not the two at the very bottom, the other ones). Reach under machine and remove pump assembly, which is held in place with a plastic tab on the bottom. If you break the tab, don't worry, it's not really needed as the screws will hold the pump assemble in place just fine. You should now be able to disconnect the electric wire plug and remove the hoses clamped onto the pump. Pump motor is a separate replaceable part.

FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
