LG INTELLOWASHER DD 7KG

Hi there , i have the LG front loader washing machine model WM1080FHD and it has a small computer problem . I set the machine ready to do a wash and press on start . It then shows up an error message in the digital display for door not closed .(de). This lasts for approximately 2 minutes then the machine starts to wash perfectly in every other way . I have tried cleaning out the door catch area and tightening up the door hinges etc but to no avail ! I was wondering if there is a service engineers code to try and reset the system or something similar . Any advice or something to try would be gratefully appreciated . Thanks in advance Steve .

You may need to have the door switch replaced but before that should be done, make sure the wire connector is securely in place.

I have the same issue and just firmly press the door in which starts the machine, it seems to be an over sensitive overload detector.

Hi, I have a LG Tromm WD-14331AD. At the start of the wash cycle, water will dispense, but not a lot. When spinning, there is hardly any water in the drum and water just stops dispensing.


A front loader only uses a very small amt of water. That's the point of front loaders. Make sure u only use a very small amt of detergent also. And use white vinegar in place of fabric softener. If washer is slow to fill you can check the filters in the supply lines. Take the water lines off the back of the washer and check the filters in the washer

What lime scale / detergent remover can be used for regular cleaning of my front loader.


Front-loading washing machines are energy efficient and use less detergent than top-loaders, but they sometimes have a tendency to harbor mold and unpleasant smells. By giving your washing machine a quick clean once a month, you'll keep your front-loader fresh, which means cleaner clothes, too. This eco-friendly method doesn't use bleach, costs only pennies to make, and comes together with ingredients you already have on hand.
What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Scrub sponge
Directions:
  1. Start by mixing together the baking soda and water in a small bowl. This is going to be the "detergent" for cleaning the washing machine. Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup and head over to your washing machine.
  2. Add the baking soda mixture to the detergent container of your machine and pour the vinegar into the drum. Set your washer to normal load at the hottest water setting. Close the door and start the machine, letting it do all the hard work for you. The baking soda and vinegar naturally break up mineral deposits and any mold growth while cleaning and refreshing your washing machine.
  3. Use a clean scrubber to rub around the opening of the washing machine, removing stubborn mold or residue. Wipe clean with fresh water.
  4. Your washing machine is sparkling clean and ready to do a load of laundry! Give your front-loader a cleaning once a month to keep your clothes smelling fresh and your machine working in tip-top condition.

How do I open to remove the water on an LG tromm front load washing machine to repair/replace the pump?


LG machines normally have a small diameter rubber pipe folded up in the drain pump basket area on the lower left side of the front panel.
Pull out the pipe and remove the small plastic end stopper to allow the water in the tub to drain.

I have an lg front loader washing machine...it keeps stopping mid cycle and gives a troubleshoot code of oe...i cant find my owners manual and the lg site is awful....can you help me?


OE is drain error..Most likely problem is partially blocked pump filter...This is accessed via the small door at floor level...Unscrew the pump cover and clear the filter..Any water in the machine will flow from the pump cover...Empty the machine first...Leaning it back can help....Good luck....Nomess
