Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Drying problems I have the LG Washer/Dryer all in one and it works fine, except for now when it is drying, the unit will intake water for a few seconds and then it makes the clothes soggy and then I have to spin them again. The only way it does not do it is if I turn off the water valve before drying. Can you please give me some advise?

This usually indicates that the fill valve for the drying cycle is faulty. In short you need a new cold water valve assembly. (this will fix this issue 90% of the time) Otherwise you may need a new control board.

Inside of the machine (you will have to remove the top cover from the machine) is a valve assembly attached to the cold water line. This valve assembly consists of 2 or 3 individual valve bodies . The one on the right hand side of the assembly usually controls the cold water inlet for the drying cycle(this is necessary for proper condensation drying to take place). There is a black hose which attaches this part of the valve assembly to the wash drum. With the water shut off and the power removed from the machine, remove this hose from the valve and look to see if it has a small red (usually) plastic insert. This is a restricter insert which limits the water flow into the tub. Without the insert the tub will fill with cold water in a short amount of time.

I am having 2 issues. Most importantly, my front load washer/dryer is skipping drying time. I typically wash the clothes then put dryer sheets in and use the dry only on low heat option. It starts...


Your two issues may be related. A combo washer / dryer uses a fine spray of cool water to condense moisture out of the air stream while drying. This water is then pumped down the drain. Cold water is also used to fill the softner dispenser. If the inlet screen on the cold water connection to the machine is restricted, those are two of several things which could show up. Turn cold water valve supplying water to machine off. Unscrew cold water fill hose from machine. Remove screen from inside machine, clean, re-install, re-attach cold water fill hose, turn cold water valve back on and see if performace improved.

Washer-dryer # wm3677HW will not dry,heats up, run, on and on


You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

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!

LG all in one washer dryer fills with water on the drying cycle


the unit is made to bring water in in the drying cycle ,,the water dont touch the clothes..the water is to take the lint away and to cool the drum,,you must remember that you can was 22 pounds but you can only dry 11 pound..so you must dry about half of what you wash..and drying the 11 pounds it will take 3 to 4 hours,,no exhaust...

Washer Dryer


washer dryers work by using a fine jet of cold water to condense the steam from your clothes drying. therefore, water has to be turned on when in the drying mode. make sure water is on.
after that, if water is in fact turned on, then the fault will probably lie in the valve being open circuit

Washer dryer is no longer drying


two things to check take rear half of cabinet off and check the dryer duct (lhs from front) is not blocked. this is very common check water is being taken in during dry - the water is used to condense steam from the drying clothes. easiest way to check this is to see that some water is being drained during the drying cycle. i assume that drain is operating ok

Heating, draining water(enough?) but not drying clothes, they're just HOT, so is top of machine


You have a problem with the condensing duct.  Possibly clogged with excess and lint and needs to be cleaned out.  This requires disassembly of the unit to get to it.  Not a difficult job but not easy.
