I can't turn on SpinSense on my LG WM3987HW combo washer-dryer. I've tried pressing the button for 3 seconds in nearly every mode, on or off, locked, unlocked, wash, spin, rinse. I've managed to get it on...


I have an earlier version of your machine (WM3988HWA). What I've found is that you can't use the Spinsense feature if you've got the Dry cycle set to go after your wash. I have no idea why they designed it this way!
We run the wash first without setting it to dry, and have no problem turning Spinsense on. I usually hold it down for 3 second after hitting the start button, but you can also do it before you start the wash. When the wash is done, then we start a dry cycle.
This is the main flaw with our otherwise great machine. I posted about it at http://www.fixya.com/ThreadAsker.aspx?thid=1844295 a long time ago but never got any advice.

On the spin cycle setting, should the green light be blinking all the time through the whole wash load.


It blinks when you have spinsense mode activated. When you first start a load just press and hold the water plus button for 3 seconds to turn it on and off. I'm honestly still not sure what exactly the spinsense mode does but thats all it is so nothing to worry about.

This machine from day one had an imbalance problem. Yes the shipping bolts have been removed. It has got to the point now that we see the machine getting closer and closer to our furnace which is 3 feet...


OK the washer is fine the problem is how the unit was inproperaly installed.

If your washer has spin sense please activate it by ...
Power on
Select wash cycle
Start
Press and hold the spinsense button for 3 seconds
A beep will be heard and the spin speed display light will blink .
Spin sense will remain active untill you turn it off.

Put 5-6 full size bath towles in the washer.
Select quick wash.
When the washer is in the spin cycle...
Adjust each leg of the washer untill the washer smooths out.

If you have pedastals snug up the washer leggs to the pedastal then proceed as above.

Your washer came with a flat silver adjustment wrench to remove shipping bolts and adjust the leggs of the washer.

I have the spinsense option activated. I want to turn it off and I want to activate the tub clean option. The won't work when I press and hold the button for 3 seconds. What can I do?


Push and hold Stain Cycle button for 3 seconds to cancel spinsense. Then, turn off machine. When you power it back on, press "Extra Rinse" for 3 seconds and push the START button.

When cleaning tub, do NOT use detergent--only use liquid chlorine bleach.

I hold down the tub clean for 3 seconds & the prewash turns on


You need to turn "off" the "spinsense" feature before you can successfully activate the 'tub clean' cycle.LG won't tell you this.Just make sure you turn it back "on" after you are done,as you probably turned it on for a good reason.

LG front load washer spinsense buttom does not come on


I have the LG WM3988HWA, which is a washer and dryer in one. The way it works on ours is that you press and hold the Spinsense button for 3 seconds before you start a wash, or while a wash is paused. When Spinsense is on, the LCD will say "Spinsense" on the right-hand side when the machine is running. Nothing happens with the light on the Spinsense button.

Spinsense makes a huge difference as the machine is on the second floor of our old wooden house. I don't even notice the spin cycle with Spinsense on.

Problems:
1. We need to turn it on for every load. This is just annoying.
2. Spinsense will not turn on when you've the Dryer option activated. This means we have to do two trips to the machine for each load, or have our house feel like it's shaking to pieces. There's no good reason that the Spinsense/Dryer shouldn't work.

Can't make tub clean setting work


Thanks to a couple of previous responders, 6 months of frustration has now ended - I can now run the Tub Clean on my LG Steam Washer! I first want to say that it is important not to get excited and start pushing buttons randomly, as I think I had been doing for all these months when I couldn't get Tub Clean to work by pushing the button in for 3 seconds. Just do the following, which combines and expands on a couple of previous responses:

1. I had to deactivate the Spin Sense, and if your Spin Sense is ON, you will have to do this too. (It is ON if the spin speed light flashes while any of the wash cycles is in progress. If spin speed button does not flash while a wash cycle is in progress, the Spin Sense is already off.) So how to deactivate Spin Sense? Select Speed Wash, and start the cycle. Let it run for about 20 seconds and THEN push and HOLD IN in the Spin Sense option button for 3 seconds. The blinking spin speed button will stop blinking and you will then know that the Spin Sense is OFF.

2. Once Spin Sense is off: Start with your machine turned off. Then push the power button on and select the RINSE AND SPIN option button. Then START the Rinse and Spin cycle. Let it run for about 5 seconds and then PUSH IN AND HOLD THE TUB CLEAN OPTION BUTTON FOR 3 SECONDS. You will then see the little LED light panel show something that looks like tcl. And you are there! Just leave it alone .... the LED will change to one hour and 25 minutes. And it will clean your machine just great.

3. Don't forget to put your bleach in the detergent cup before you start all of this.

I want to thank the two responders above who gave me the essential features for this fix. I forgot to make a note of their names before I started this response, but you can see who they are. I am so excited. Now EVERYTHING works on my LG Steam Washing Machine. I love this machine. It is a miracle of cleaning, especially since I own 4 large breed dogs and am washing and sanitizing large hairy and smelly bedding each and every day. And I no longer have to iron anything - I just use the steam cycle to unwrinkle our clothes. Best washer I have ever owned (and I have owned another major brand of large capacity front loading washer before - no comparison).

Extra Spin cycle?


(I know this is an old question, but its probably a common question for new owners - including me a couple of weeks ago...)

Power the unit back on, press the spin speed button and it will select the "drain and spin" cycle. Pressing the spin speed button again will select different spin speeds as well as just "drain".

Something you might try instead of medium spin speed is to turn on "SpinSense". To turn this on (and off), press and hold the "Stain Cycle" button for 3 seconds while any wash program is in process.

What SpinSense does is measure the imbalance by doing a very slow spin before cranking the spin speed up (and measuring how constant the very low spin speed is). If the balance is out too much, it will stop, let the clothes drop, and then try another slow spin. It will try this over and over many times until the balance is decent. Then it will let it rip. It makes a huge difference, but it can spend a lot of time getting a good balance some times.

SpinSense also seems to be able to detect if the machine is shaking terribly, shut the spin down and try again.

Our LG 2688 is on our 1st floor (wooden floor). Without SpinSense, the vibration was terrible and with it, it is tolerable.

For some reason we typically get less vibration with "Extra High" spin speed compared to "High" so that is another option you might try.

Spin speed


If that light is blinking, it's because the spinssense is turned on. If you look at the lighted buttons all the way on the top right of the machine, one of them says spinsense under it. While the machine is running, press and hold that button for 3 seconds. You'll hear a little chime and the light should stop blinking. It's supposed to help vibrations on wood floors.
