Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have an LG Intellwash WD 1018C that does everything but spin. I put it up on trestles to look underneath and noticed that there were sparks coming from the motor (when running) where the bushes contact the copper spindle/shaft? I touched the plastic bush holder and got a belt of elec. Is this normal ( Apart from my not being normal by sticking my fingers where they don't belong) and would this be the problem of not spinning.

SOURCE: Everything is working except the spin cycle

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.

Hiya Cheap6... more than likely the brushes.. which are easily checked to see if they are worn down.. otherwise its a new or RE-con motor.

SOURCE: indesit washer not spinning

I had exactly the same problem. All seemed ok, except no spin. I followed Shaun's advice and replaced the module board. Cost of about f£23 from ebay, but similar price on espares.co.uk. Fixed it. Thank you.

SOURCE: lg intellowasher wd-8013f is very noisy

it will definitely be the bearings and possibly the spider as well. the spider is attached to the bowl. the spider is made of aluminum and they corrode all the time. open the door to the machine and grab hold of the steel bowl, has it got movement on it. if it has then the spider and bearings are faulty, also the main shaft seal will need replacing.nearly every time i went to an LG 8013f that was noisy it was the bearings and or spider. hope this helps. please reply 4 more help. good luck.

I have a LG WD-1018C washer that wont spin out .. it just keep starting and stopping in about 30 second intervals ... an error code has just come up ... 1E ...can you help please ? Steve


The IE or 1E error or fault code indicates 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.

Csan I use WD-40 to lubercate the blade? My lawmower got wet in the rain and the blade is stiff. It would run for a split second to show me that it works. I filled up the gas tank. I checked the oil....


The tight spot that you are noticing is the compression stroke of the engine. The blade is hooked to the crank shaft, which also means that if you are spinning it by hand and still have the spark plug hooked up to the plug wire, you could potentially start the mower and chop your hand to bits. WD-40 will not free anything up here and the stiff spot you feel is not a problem. Be safe out there.

I have a LG WD-1018C that won't work and has PE on the screen and I can't find the manual to fix it. Can you please tell me what PE means. Thanks


The error code "PE" stands for pressure sensor error. This is typically caused by a malfunctioning water pressure sensor switch.

My troy built 2200 pressure washer was running fine but then shut off instantly I then noticed it had low oil I filled it but now it won't start


9224467.jpg
Pressure washer takes oil in two places:
Pump oil is 20-30 weight SAE non detergent and comes half way up/ do not fill more than 1/2 way
Engine oil is 10W30 and comes half way up dip stick
IF you overfilled the oil >>> DO NOT turn power washer on it's side or upside down to drain oil >>> because engine oil will fill carburetor

When engine won't start
We pull off air filter so we have direct access to carburetor
Spray WD-40 into carburetor while starting
The engine will fire on the WD-40

You can keep spraying WD-40 into carburetor to keep engine running while moving choke to see if engine will run on it's own
Squeeze gun trigger so water comes out gun and pump pressure doesn't stop engine

If engine will not fire on WD-40
Spark is suspect
Your spark plug gets power from ignition coil
If coil is bad you get no spark > and coil needs needs replacement
Take out spark plug, clean it with WD-40 and use a bit of sandpaper in the spark gap
Put spark wire back on plug
Touch threads of spark plug to metal part of engine > pull cord and look for sparking between spark plug and engine
If you do NOT have any sparking, then coil is bad
If you HAVE spark, then your spark plug needs cleaning or replacement

If engine fires on WD-40 but will not keep running
Then either fuel or carburetor are suspect
Loosen hex nut on fuel filter located below gas tank >> if fuel flows, then re-tighten hex
Next, pull off rubber hose connected to carburetor to see if fuel flows to carburetor
If fuel is flowing to carburetor, then the carburetor is suspect.
Small engine repair shop will have carburetor cleaners

Check exhaust
There is a screen over exhaust
Make sure it is clean of carbon build-up > Use WD-40

Change air filter

You have a poor signal to the spark plug usually caused by a rusty fly wheel found underneath the pullcord casing. clean it with releasing ajent such as wd 40. common when not in use for a while.
