Probably due to not draining.
there is a filter in the system which you need to remove and clean. possible also that you have a foreign object jamming the pump.
take the back panel at the bottom of the machine off.
you will see a large diameter hose going from the bottom of the tub to the pump.remove this hose at the tub end. lots of water will come out so make sure none goes on the motor. the filter is inside this hose. take out and clean
let me know if this doesn't work

Start button not working


As much as it sounds bad, try spraying wd-40 in the start button with everything off, let it sit out in the sun for a few hours to let it soak in to the metal contacts under the switch and to dry out the wd-40. Then after say 4-5 hours, go out there and press the button a good few number of times say 100 pressing fast and hard a couple of times, that way if rust is on the contacts the wd should free some of the rust up and knock it loose off the contact.

Next time you go to wash bike put a plastic bag over the button to keep out the water and just wash around the area with a damp rag rather than soaking the whole area, should help to keep the button dry.

Worse case scenario is you can get a new/used button on ebay, replace and then start using a plastic bag to keep dry. those things are rough when the switches get wet on a bike.

Hope this helps.

UE Error Code for LG Washing Machines


If you are getting a UE error code from your LG washing machine then you need to know what is causing this code. This UE error code is caused when there is an unbalanced load condition sensed by the washing machine. There are a few things that can cause this and ways to correct it.

If you are doing a load of wash that is too small, this can allow all of the wash to be on one side of the drum. Single heavier items will not work well and will cause this error when spinning. Very light single items may work, but for heavier items you will need to add more to the load to get it to work properly.

If you have a load of heavier items like blankets, and sheets, you may have to stop the machine and spread them around the drum evenly before it will spin properly. Even jeans, shirts, and pillow cases can sometimes all end up on one side of the drum and cause it to become unbalanced. After spreading the items around the drum evenly, try to restart the spin cycle.

If you hear your washing machine slowing down and tumbling a few times when trying to spin, it may be that you machine has a option on it that tries to redistribute the load on its own if it senses an unbalanced load. The machine will try this a couple of times before it will stop and give you an error code.

If you need to reset the code at any time you can do this by unplugging the washing machine and then holding in the start/pause button for 5 seconds. Plug the washer back in and the code should be clear.

Washing machine keeps filling with water


I would say your water level sensor is broke. It reads the water level and cuts it off when it is appropriate.

Le keep coming on


dfgf
dSorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.Is this a new installation?

In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?

Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?

Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

NOTE: Make sure the drum is not overloaded

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Loud noise during spin cycle... maybe a bearing or belt.... no problems during wash cycle


First of all check there is no coin or similar object stuck between the barrel and outer drum. or could be possible object in pump. If you take a look at back of drum (presuming it's a front loader) Look for any water at bottom f drum, this could indicate water seal bearing trouble. If it is the latter then dont just replace water seal, replace the bearings as well. A set of bearings and water seal will cost around £50/£75 and should take a few hours to do.
