LG washer uses so little water, clothes aren't even damp and not clean

Hi,
I know the LG washer is supposed to use little water, but mine uses so little water the clothes aren't even damp. They come out smelling worse than they went in. I see some models have an extra-water button, this one does not. Is there a way I can get it to use ALOT more water?

    The clothes seem damp but smell worse than they went in and not very clean looking either.

    I used the "bulky load" cycle and it fills the washer to the top. You are right, the washer does not fill enough water into the machine.

On my LG front load washer, I can manually add another 1.5 gallons of water if I choose the permanent press cycle. I choose permanent press and press the button for extra soil so that the wash cycle lasts 10 minutes longer. Then after starting the machine I wait about 3-4 minutes until it fills, and then I add another gallon and a half of water through the detergent drawer. Once the machine does its two rinses and turns off I press the button to do rinse and spin. This cycle fills the machine with quite a bit of water for the final rinse and it gets out most if not all of the detergent. Adding the extra water during the wash cycle really helped the washing performance in my machine.

Check water hose connections for debris blockage first. It might be that simple.

I had the same problem with my LG top loading washer but now I wash all loads on bulky and the washer fills up to the top. I am finally getting clean clothes. Before there were parts on the clothes that were still totally dry in spots after having gone through a complete wash cycle and I was NOT putting too many clothes in.

You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.

No seems to be getting in, wash comes out damp n dirty


Is this a new washer or has there been a change in it's functionality?
Front loading washers do use very little water. One must be careful not overload them and also to be sure to use the detergent that is made for them. Can you see the clothes and water sloshing around? Try a small load with HE detergent and make sure to use the very small amount recommended and let me know if you still have a problem.

I am looking to buy a used Frigidaire GLWS1233AS2 Top Load Washer and GLER331AS2 . They are supposed to be 3 years old. Are they good machines or do they have lots of problems?


Mine is 10 yrs old and I am just now having a problem. Clothes are too damp after last spin cycle. Hopefully, I'll get an answer here soon. Another problem I noticed a few months after I got it, with this model, is the fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator. You have to remove it every single time and clean it. I added a little water to it before adding fabric softener and thought that would help to stretch the cleaning to maybe once or twice a week. Don't do it! I started to smell mildew and found out why. The agitator shaft that this dispenser sits on was caked with old fabric softener. I just use the blue Downey ball now. The fabric dispenser stinks but I have had 10 yrs of good washing.

My clothes do not seem as fresh as usual and some even smell damp rather than washed (some feel a bit dry too). The soap unit has gone really black from the back and the pipe underneath it is black from...


Mine does this too. I've also noticed that no water is visable through the door window and I'm sure the bottom of the drum should be submerged. I've been adding a bowl of water after the m/c has taken water in, which seems to help, but I don't know what the long term solution is. But definitely get a cloth out and clean the soap unit and housing!

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please


I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

Frigidaire uses way too little water


most front loads use less than 5 gals to wash or rinse since most of this is absorbed by the clothes little or no water will be seen during wash action..as long as clothes get clean don't sweat it just be sure to use low suds HE detergents just remember that's why you bought the front load to save water and energy

I need to know how to clean the LG flatron L1953T screen without damaging it in any way? should we just used windex or not? it has been wiped with a damp cloth and now has water marks.


Please do not use Windex. Use Anti-Static Monitor Wipes for LCD screens. Using Windex or other cleaning solutions like it will cause streaks on your screen. Damp cloths have the same effect as Windex.

Clothes Hot but damp, water out of vent


Is this a combo washer/dryer in 1 unit? water shoud not come out if it is just a dryer. Your air coming out of the back vent hose should be hot. If your clothes comes out of your WASHER damp (more than normal) then your washer is not spin drying good enough. (worn belt, clogged drainage system).
