Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a LG frontload washer-model # WM2016CW. The machine won't let cold water in. I checked for continuity on the water inlet valve and it seemed to check out ok. However, I went into test mode on the washer and when I got to step 5 it would not let any water in. Step 4 and 6 seemed to work. Just wandering if it could be the valve itself or a different electrical problem. Thanks for any help or advise. Michael Bosserman

Hi

I hope you have used a multimeter to check the inlet valves/solenoids. There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Remove the connections to the inlet valve, firmly pull out the connectors. You can use pliers to remove the connectors, clean/replace the connectors if found dirty. Use a multimeter to test for continuity, set the multimeter to RX1 or RX10 setting Touch one probe to each terminal, CE or E or infinite reading indicates a bad inlet valve. Test the other valves in the same way. Some resistance value indicates a good valve.
Make sure the inlet hose/s is not blocked. Also, clean the water inlet screen. Make sure the water pressure is not low. Please check the exploded diagram below---

Note-- Label the wires prior to removal so you can remember how to reconnect them. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Lg model lds5540 smells, will not clean properly and doesn't seem to have enough water during cycle. also occasionally shows the fe error code. ??? any thoughts?


WATER OVER FLOW ERROR // Water continuing to enter machine
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced.You can check it with a multimeter to confirm, it should show continuity on both hot and cold pins. try exchanging the how and cold water hoses, cold on hot and hot on cold, see what happens. have u tried running only cold water or hot water wash? as for the smell could be a build up of detergent or frabic softner, try washer running machine with hot water and vinigar to clean out also check inlet valve for dirt build up

Washer from flashing 1E & leaking


LG Washing Machine Displaying Fault Code IE or 1E WM2016CW WATER INLET ERROR // Water not entering washing machine correctly
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate 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.

Check that the pressure switch tube is connected to pressure switch. Check that the water inlet valve is not stuck open. To check start washer, turn washer off, if water continues to flow the valve is stuck open, replace.

Washer stops between wash and rinse, and stays full of water. ld code


see this steps and fix it. God bless you


Lid Switch Assembly

If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly

If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Water Inlet Valve

If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board

If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

LG WM1814CW washer - doesn't fill with water. Hear a hum when it should be filling with water, but no water and no error codes. I am guessing Valves (F160 and F170). Any thoughts?


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Check the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine and remove the water supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the water inlet valve openings. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Pay particular attention to the cold water side. Check the solenoids for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
