Question about LG WM2688H Front Load Washer
I opened the compartment on the lower left and turned what I thought was the filter to remove it but water is pouring out non-stop. How do I get the washing machine to drain and if I am supposed to turn that filter on the bottom left, how long until it stops pouring water - I've soaked 5 towels completely.
That is the filter compartment that you accessed. I believe ( and you can verify ) that there is a short hose with a cap next to that filter that you can extend to control the drain off into a container or two. If you haven't cleaned the filter for a long time, there is a good chance that it is blocked up with junk that limits the system from draining properly. I had that problem myself. Also, these front loaders use HE detergent and Ihad been filling the detergent cup up to the mark but you because these use very little water during the wash cycle I was advised to use only a few drops... Yes drops.. and I have been and clothes come out just as clean. maybe even a bit less if you buy X2 or X3 HE detergent. Hope my bad experience with this helps you...
