Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a DE code on my LG Wm1832cw front load washer. This happened last weekend, and we found that the small drain hose in the front was clogged so we got the clog out and the washer has worked great all week until this morning and as I was washing a load of towels, the DE code happened again. I have drained the washer and taken out the towels- what should my next step be? Is there anywhere else we can look for a clog?

Own a lg wm1832cw front load washer doesnt seem to clean properly when wearing tee shirts for an hour smells like they never were washed paid alot of money for this thing seems cheaper top load machines...


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

We have a water leak coming from beneath our machine . Fault reports = 'OE'. what is the problem?


OE is really DE = Drain Error. This should have nothing to do with your water leak.
For the DE code, open the access panel on the lower left on front of the washer. Drain the last of the water out of the machine using the small hose found there, then unscrew the big knob next to the hose and remove. Clean out this filter. If nothing is in the filter, replace pump motor.
The most common source of a water leak is a small hole in the gray tub gasket at the door opening. Examine it very closely, looking for rubbed spots which may have developed a hole.

I neet o replace drain pump on a LG wm1832cw model


its not easy, but you'll have to lay the washer on its back and take off the crate like bottom panel. Discontect all the hoses. Disconnect the electrical line going to the pump. If you can, try and seperate the pump motor from the housing by unscrewing two screws on the housing, which will seperate the motor from the housing, If you cant get to it, I actually broke the screws on the drain filter housing to get it loose. I secured it back with the other front loading screw and some gorilla glue, shouldnt be a problem. I should at least get another 6 years out of this pump. Good luck.

That's actually DE (Drain Error). Clean out the filter behind the small access door on the front lower left side of the machine. The small hose is there to drain the water out first. If there is nothing in the filter, you may need a new pump motor. (pump impeller comes off shaft sometimes, requiring pump motor replacement)

DE error code


I would guess that the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 4.5 or a 5. Not too bad.

Wht does the code OE Mean I can't find my manual for my LG 2077 washer


HI. this code represents a drainage problem. The drain hose may be bent or clogged with debris or, it may be a clogged drain filter as well. I recommend cleaning and straightening the drain hose and i would also clean the drain filter. this should fix the issues you are having with this washer.


please rate and god bless.

FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
