Question about LG Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a WF-T853A , 8.5 Fuzzy Logic top loader. It has stopped spinning. Had to drain the water out manually and remove the wet clothes. When I programme it to spin, the electronic panel makes a clicking noise but that is all. Sometimes if I put it on "speedy" cycle the agitators will activate a few times then stop.

SOURCE: PE error code on LG WF-T653A

PE is a pressure switch problem. Could be a bad switch or it could be that the hose is plugged. The switch looks like a diapharm switch and is located on the main board. It has a black hose that connects under the bottom of the tub. See if that end is clogged. Otherwise you may need a new switch.

SOURCE: ge top loader washer agitator does not work

To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Top Loader Stopped working mid-cycle & rattling

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. If you manually advance the dial does it drain? The washer is a direct drive model that uses an electric drive motor to run the gearcase (transmission) and the drain pump. Even with the coupler broken (and worse-case scenario - the gearcase) the washer will still drain due to the way it is designed.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, this is usually a sign that the motor coupling has broken. The noise of the motor engaging, rattling noises, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are other common symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.
If you confirmed that the washer will not drain, you could have a pump that has something caught in it. The drain on these washers on have one moving part - the impeller. If something gets caught in it, the pump will not drain. You can access the pump by following this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397094-replacing_water_pump

Use the steps in the link provided to access the drain pump and remove the hoses to check inside the pump for any foreign objects (underwires from bras, undergarments and panty hose are common items). If the wash tub is still full of water an easy way to drain it with no mess is to use a wet/dry shop vac to pull the water from the tub. Simple gravity works too by removing one of the drain hoses, but is not recommended if the washer is in your home. These wash tubs have a 35 gallon capacity. If you have no shop vac and cannot risk allowing the washer to drain by pulling one of the drain hoses, you need to bail.

If the pump is defective, the part number is 3363892 and can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $42.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a LG Fuzzy logic for a year and a half now, model WF-8071TTP top loader. it seems that after washing all my clothes are full of fluff. I have cleaned out the filter bag, and all little filters at...


certain materials give off fluff and some others seem to attract it. you can try putting in similar materials together and avoid mixing turkish bath towels, blankets and jackets and such clothes having fluffy lining with normal clothes. Also try selecting higher water level (overriding the automatic selection) manually. Once when i had fluff on clothes, it turned out to be tissue paper from my child's jeans pockets. After cleaning the filter bag, run the machine empty at maximum water level every week. Hope one of these will help solve your problem.

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out


If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

I have a Brand LG Top loader washing machine (Fuzzy Logic WF-T9235TP), it continue draining the water even if I am starting to wash


You probably have the drain hose too far down the standpipe and it is siphoning out. Check that first. If that doesn't work, look up Catriver, sounds like that cat knows his stuff. Tenbears.

  • That the outlet hose is not kinked or raised more than 40° from the floor.
  • If you wish to remove articles when the water will not pump out, place the end of the drain hose into a bucket on the floor and allow water to drain out by gravity, noting that more than one bucketful may be present. Hook the hose into the sink again and try the spinner before removing the articles - if this fails most of the water can be baled out with a cup.
  • If the above method fails to remove the water then the pump is probably blocked - do not open the door, but contact your nearest Service Engineer.
  • Thanks for using Fixya!
