Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

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.

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!

I have jst purchased this washer today, however the dryer takes ages,,,,,,their seems to be water going in when its drying, clothes come out hot, but still as damp as when i put them into dry.


Hi, this is normal for a washer dryer, water isn't actually going in, it is condensating and then being pumped away.

when you use the dryer program your are only meant to put half the washing load or less in at a time if there is too much wet washing in the machine it will take forever to dry as it cant get rid of the amount of condensation quick enough so some of it is reabsorbed into the clothes and so it goes on.

so the trick is only to put in a maximum of half the full washing load.

Hope this helps.

You may have a broken inner tub spider. Check for play between the inner drum and the outer tub by moving the inner drum up and down.
If there is excessive play, the spider is broken causing an unbalanced load and therefore no high speed spin can be achieved.

In this case the inner drum would need to be replaced, which means taking the machine almost completely apart. A good tech can do it in about 1.5 hours.

My washer doesn't get enough water in it to wash properally.There isn't a water level knob on the washer.Its a frontloading whirlpool.


There is most likely nothing wrong with the washer. Front load washers will only fill about 2 inches of water in the tub. As the load starts to tumble, water is absorbed into the clothes, causing the water level to drop. The machine senses this and adds more water. The process continues until the water level stabilizes. (thus no need for a water level switch) Your clothes should get wet, but you will little if any water. If you use a gentle cycle you will get slightly more water, as the washers tumble at the same speed for all cycles, but give a more gentile wash if there is more water in the drum.
Also,..... remember because you have so little water in a front load washer (compared to most all top loader models) you want to use only 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per load!

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


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.

Clothes Smell Musty and Damp


It sounds like a build up of washing residue. Clean inside the door seal and do a very hot wash with a bit of washing powder and no clothes. Repeat this once a week until smell has gone.
