I have a centrex CTW45270A washing machine and the water doesnt cut off

Before you call anyone I would check the drain hose and make sure that it isn't pushed too far down. Reason being is that if the end of the drain line is lower than the pump of the machine then you'll have a siphon effect and the machine will constantly drain and fill.

Hi , washing machine is a lg intellowasher 7.5 kg it wont run any cycle with drain or spin was having to do both of these programs manually to get washing done screen flashes OE or O3 what is wrong with it...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I don't know your particular machine so I am guessing with you saying 'it wont run any cycle with drain or spin'

I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.


It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.

Hope this is the problem and good luck!

My lg washing machine is a semi automatic model 6.2 kg . water is not getting drained don't know why?

Sounds like a pump or drain hose blockage.. Check filter. Could also be the pump motor. The more resent synchronous pump motors get detritus inside them and gradually 'gunk up'. You may be able to drain the machine by lowering the drain hose and allowing gravity to help. this won't work if the drain hose is mounted high at rear of machine......Nomess

Blows 6 amp fuse in top panel. On spin cycle runs the pump but motor wont rotate for spin. If left blows fuse again.

Remove the hoses and check the impeller of the pump for an obstruction.

My washing machine wont empty or spin it was working the other day and i put a small rug in it that went heavy when it was wet and it stopped working it is a centrex 7 kilo

You drain pump may be full of the rug stuff you will need to open the washer and the remove drain hose to remove what is stuck in the pump.... I have used a shop wet/dry vaccum put on the drain hose to remove stuff... but it will not always work...

good luck
