Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a LG washing machine Model # WM2688H*M it has a slight leak that I traced to a small black hose. The hose is in the back of the machine that goes from the bottom of the drum to the top somewhere that I cannot see. How do I remove the top cover? What does this hose do? The hose has 2 foam rings I guess they are for protection and vibration one of the foam rings is wet. Thank You. Dan

It's not likely the hose is leaking, but rather water is leaking from somewhere else and is running down the outside of that hose. Remove the washer top by taking out the two phillips head screws from the bottom of the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Now, stand in front of the machine and use the palms of you hands to sharply push the top cover back about 2 inches, then lift the cover off. Look for the water leak. The most likely suspect is a water inlet valve.

Lg tromm washer leaks from detergent drawer


my washer also was leaking from the dispenser and I had a cap from one of the detergent bottles stuck in the inlet hose. Don't know how it got in there but glad I found it so if your washer leaks from the soap tray it could be a cap from your detergent bottle stuck in there.

Replace the boot with new. While you have top and front off to replace boot, hose the drum down with a hose on stream. Remove filter clean out as you hose it down. Btw, there is no cleaning off the boot if it has mildew/mold on it.. it's slightly porous and no eliminating it

My washing machine LG WD1238C keeps showing error message OE hose is not blocked or filter blocked does not finish any cycle or work correctly


This sounds like a blockage in the small hose connected to the waste pump. Take the lid off and find the waste pump down near the bottom of the machine below the drum, then remove any one of the hoses connected to the waste pump and check inside the pump to make sure the fan can spin using your fingures, maybe a small kids sock or similar jammed in there, if nothing in the pump check both pipes on the waste pump

LG WM2688HM front loader is leaking water around the door seal


this may be coming from the soap dispenser and running down round the door way and to the bottom- investigate that first. otherwise the seal may be worn/ damaged and needs replacing.

Le code and will not drain or spin


I read a post on another site, here is the link for the owners manual, see page 18 for the LE error code
http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/WM2277/WM2277xx_Service_Manual.pdf

I simply unplugged my machine for 30 seconds, plugged it back in and it worked like a champ.
