SOURCE: washing machine not spinning or draining water

I have the same washer, WT-R801. Does the machine stop all together when the spin cycle arrives?, if so check the pump on the drain. Mine was burnt out. Its available for $61.00 delivered from Adelaide. Steve.

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

You probably have the drain hose too far down the standpipe and it is siphoning out. Check that first. If that doesn't work, look up Catriver, sounds like that cat knows his stuff. Tenbears.

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

Lg turbo drum not draining water


It sounds like a fault in the control board or the gearcase. I would have it serviced by an appliance repair service. Front loaders are VERY difficult and involved. These machines are WAY beyond the home repairman unless they have been trained.

I have a broken bra wire stuck behind drum of LG turbo drum washing machine, how do I get the drum out??


You don't say if it's a front or top loader. I managed to get one out with a strong magnet inside the drum just moving it about until it appeared near one of the holes in the drum without taking the machine apart. But it was a front loader and is probably easier than a top loader.

LG Turbo Drum Dd WT R902 wont pump out water , I have unblocked it and if i put the hose on the ground the water gravity pumps out, but when i put the hose back up it stops, it will spin but not pump


did you take the hoses off both sides of the pump. turn the pump impeller to make sure it turns free. at radio shack you can get a meter for $15.00 to check for power to the pump if it's getting power and it spins free by hand replace it. if no power during drain time it's a bad wire to it or bad control board

Water fills drum (top loader) even when off


Your problem is a jammed water solenoid, If you take the top off the machine it is possible to remove and either strip it down to see if it is dirty or replace it. your washer hose usually connects directly to it.
