Question about LG WD-12126RD Front Load Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Lg wd-12331ad As with first guy on this thread, I've got a wd-12331ad. The machine is a condenser washer-dryer, with all-digital controls. I have the same issues (though drying performance is Ok for me): I have no Idea how to set the machine to "Just Dry". Meaning you can't put the washing back in the machine to dry if it starts to rain. Please help me! Also, the machine switches itself off when it's pause (e.g. pause while removing something to cure an uneven load or remove something while drying) This means you can't resume the program you were using, without starting from scratch! Any ideas?? I sent a message (2 weeks ago) on the LG support site, but the haven't got back to me... Thanks in advance. Will

    Some magic happened today!



    I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!



    Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...



    The way to get it to dry :

    -----------------------------------

    (for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)

    from machine being off:

    > press the power button.

    > press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up

    >>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration

    > press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.

    > press "Start/Pause"



    It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!



    Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...



    Something to note:

    - The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)





    For "spin only" from machine being off:

    -------------------------------------------------------

    > press the power button.

    > press the spin button

    >>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle

    >>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute

    >>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.





    Things I don't know:

    ----------------------------

    - I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.

    - I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available

    - I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons



    ...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.



    Hope that helps.

    Wish I had never bought this dud. Too fancy with no results.

    I just want the machine to dry after washing. I still don't know if the automatic cycle has drying cycle incorporated or not, but my clothes are still wet after it finishes, so I always need more drying and I'd love the machine to do that by itself. Thanks!

SOURCE: lg wd-3243rhd front load washer and dryer combo "le" error message

This web site has a copy of manual. I found it by searching in Google for: lg wd-3243rhd manual

The manual gives LE as meaning there is a motor overload, which may well mean a faulty sensor.

Note that the manual warns against putting stuff of the top of the machine because this can cause overheating.

Note also that CoolTech sounds experienced. I just read manuals.

SOURCE: Dryer will not Dry!

A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

SOURCE: LG Senseclean washer dryer combo won't dry

The problem is likely due to lint build up in the condensing unit. I found a solution here:
http://www.motusconnect.com/blog/2009/1/5/lg-washer-dryer-drama-%E2%80%93-diy-fix

I also had a softball size ball of wet, packed lint in the condensing unit. I found that the unit can be cleaned without tools or dis-assembly by:

  1. draining the water.
  2. laying the washer on it's back.
  3. removing the hose clamp on the rubber bellows that connects the drum to the condensing unit (right hand side of machine).
  4. digging the lint wads out with your fingers and a small screwdriver.
Happy drying!

My machine is doing just the same! It is about the same age as yours. I cannot believe this is it working properly, but the manufacurers are no help.

I am seriously thinking of getting rid of it, and would be loathe to touch an LG again.

SOURCE: I just had the LG

I also have this unit with the same problems. After lamenting on making a poor purchase decision, I found somewhat of a solution. Basically, water is not being expelled during the dry cycle. When I addressed this issue, clothes were MUCH more dry than before. Made a quick video demonstrating the fix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EhzuzSk2Ok

Where is the lint collector on LG 7.5g model WD 1049C Front Loader washing machine.


The combo washer/dryer doesn't have a lint collector. Air is circulated through a condensate tube and is washed down during each drying cycle.

I have a similar problem with my LG WD-3245RHD. I had a repairman come out to look at it and he said I needed a new circuit/control board. I have not been able to locate this replacement part to date. RepairClinic.com has one listed, but it is not in stock.

Dryer won't turn on at all.. There is power to it because it shocked me and the washer runs. Do you have any idea what might be wrong?


Wait a minute, the dryer shocked you? I've seen this happen twice, where I got shocked and the dryer welded itself to the washer. Ok, you may have a electrical issue with house wiring. Or, someone may have wired the dryer cord incorrectly to the dryer. I've seen both. I would address the "shocking" issue and once it's solved it most likely will fix the Dryer operation.

I have an LG washer dryer (model 12126rd) and it has just cme up with either UE or VE on the frint LCD panel. What does ths mean? Thanks!!!


UE means imbalance error. Cause : The load is to small, the appliance is tilted, laundry is gathered to one side, non distributed things are put into the drum.

Resolution: Move the washing around inside the washing machine to create a more even distribution of weight

My wahser displays CL - it won't wash anymore


It normally on the LG means your washer is protected by the Child lock function.
it either takes the option and the temp button at the same time for 3 seconds or You'll see a smiley face between the wash and rinse buttons. Press the rinse and wash buttons for a few seconds at the same time and the child lock (hence smiley face) will switch off - Not to familiar with this model but this should work.
please rate me.
