Question about LG Washing Machines

1 Answer

LG WD12020D Inverter Direct Drive 7.5kg front loader. Has never had visible water level in the drum. I have even stopped the machine, turned off the power, waited for the door to unlock, pushed the wet clothes out of the way, and no water visible in bottom of drum. This seems too low. My previous front loader (Hoover Little Big Wash) had water visible a quarter the way up the glass door. Should there be water visible in the LG door?

    Checked the bowl wash cycle, and water level a quarter the way up the drum OK (the way I remember it with my old machine), so sensor seems OK in this mode. Should there be visible water in normal wash cycle?

No water that high. But you may have an extra water button that allows you to add slightly more water to each wash load. Water should be just above bottom of inside drum in the back of the drum as it rotates

SOURCE: KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,

Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..

SOURCE: Visible water level in front-load clothes washing machine?

Yes, it is normal. There is water in the machine. One of the big draws for this style machine is that they use much less water than top load machines. If you stopped the cycle and opened the door, dug down in the clothes, you would find water. The machine fills a small amount of water (below the level of the door) and tumbles. As the water is absorbed by the clothing, the water level drops, so the machine adds more to maintain the water level. This is basically how the washer figures out how big your clothes load is and how much water that load needs. (Of course most sales persons at the big box stores and Sears have no idea how this works)
If you'd like, try running a cycle with no clothes to see how much water is in the machine. (It's not a lot) Now remember this: Because there is so much less water use than a top load machine, you must cut way way way back on the amount of soap and fabric softener used. Use no more than one tablespoon of HE (High Efficiency) soap (even less if it is 2x or 3x concentrate) and one teaspoon of fabric softener per load !!!!!
This should be a Fix-Ya for your question. Thanks.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet GHW9400 Water Level Seems Too Low

Scott,
Believe me, if the water level were ever several inches above the glass, you'd know about it 'cause it would flood your laundry room. Seriously. See? That rubber door boot/seal is not water tight (like a submarine) when the door is closed and locked, it's water "resistant".

Front loaders often appear as though the level is low, but they are designed this way. The clothing actually tumbles through the water as opposed to soaking in water like a top loader.

All of that to say that you have nothing to be concerned about. Your water level is fine.

SG

p.s. If your water level switch had failed, as you suspected, the water level would be too high and leak out the door.

SOURCE: Washer wont fill with water/clothes dont get clean

Actually the machine is working like it is designed. When the correct soap is used, these machines clean clothes better than the old style. Try using a major brand of soap like Tide, Bold, or Cheer. Make sure it has the HE design on the bottle. This means that it is made just for the new High Efficiency machines. Also make sure you don't use to much. Read the directions. If this is done correctly, I'm sure you will find that it does clean great. I was like you when I first saw one of these new machines. "These is no way you can clean dirty and I mean dirty clothes without enough water to cover them. Well since, I have became a believer. They have put a lot of thought into designing these things. They had to of, for them to clean as good as they do.
Please rate solution

SOURCE: Door locked on compact Whirlpool front-load washer

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

I have a front loader LG inverter direct drive


The water temp switch only determines weather THE MACHINE WILL USE cold or hot water. The real culprit sounds like the inlet water valve? change hoses from hot and cold and see if there are any significant changes in temperature. Another culprit may be ur motor control board, on front loads more of an issue.

Machine displays UE when spinning and turns off the machine, this occurs even when the machine is empty


UE means uneven for LG washing machine. Could you please using water level to make sure it is level. May I know if the drum is stable while spinning by not giving any banging sound. Used to happen to my LG direct drive, and solved by replacing the suspension that supporting the drum holder. Now all good like new.

LG Intellowasher cannot complete spin cycle.


Unplug power cable, remove top cover and inner panel, locate water level sensor on the right with 3 wires and a thin tube, remove the tube and puff into it until you hear water bubbling. This will clear any blockage caused by suds build up. Replace tube, covers and plug back in. It should complete cycles now.
