Tried the above. Had to remove back panel (4 screws) to access drain pump. Even then, couldn't get hoses off as they were glued. Calling service tech to hopefully fix.

Doug-

Exact model, same problem here. Purchased March 2011. I was also getting error code "OE". Sears repair came today, and the water pump impeller was jammed.

He took the drain hose off the back (Watch out, water drained all over from water outlet) and stuck his finger in the water outlet. By spinning the impeller backwards and then forwards, he was able to dislodge whatever was clogging it.

Repair would have been around $170.00 if it wasn't warranty repair.

Hope this helps.

How do I fix my LG WF-T1391TP top loader washing machine, as water does not flush out after a wash cycle, sometimes after a rinse cycle?


sounds like the drain pump could be clogged up might wanna lay it on its backside and take the motor out and inspect it for any buildup inside of its self as this can/will damage the drain pump however if there is nothing there inside the drain pump then the pump needs replacing

LG WT5101HW - Machine won't turn on. Just plays the tune softly when pressing power button. Also, machine have not been draining properly lately. Turns off by itself mid-drain with DR error code.


DR is a drain error. Have a look to see if the drain filter is blocked (if fitted) or if there is an obstruction or blockage in the pump or drain hose. If it cant pump out, the machine will stop during the cycle.

My LG front loader will not drain. I took the drain hose off, no clogs. Cleaned the filter, still won't drain. ???


if you can hear a humming noise when put on drain, this means the drain pump moter is ok but might have an object stuck around the blades! to check this you have to take off the drain moter which is behind the filter which in most models the base is open, so you have to take plug off from mains and lift the machine up and get to it from the bottom! it has 3 screws on it and its the moter which has the drain hose attached near it not the one without as most LGs have two moters one for drain one for circulation! take this moter out and check whats around it! it could be even string of some sort! make sure you put the screws in the exact place otherwise wrong hole would make it leak! take care! my advise would be to call local engineer which wont cost more than 40 to 50 pounds to fix! make sure you dont get ripped off by them saying the pump moter has gone as these pump moters very very rarely goes! im an engineer and i do this every day so i know! good luck!

I have a broken bra wire stuck behind drum of LG turbo drum washing machine, how do I get the drum out??


You don't say if it's a front or top loader. I managed to get one out with a strong magnet inside the drum just moving it about until it appeared near one of the holes in the drum without taking the machine apart. But it was a front loader and is probably easier than a top loader.

Washer won't drain. Pretty sure it's clogged but not sure how to check for this.


Hi, You don't mention whether this is a top loader or front loader. On the top loader you need to get to the drain pump. Front of washer may come off or the lid comes off and then the front. Some of them had clips under the console. Once you are at the pump, take a shop vac and empty the water. Both hoses inlet and outlet will have to be removed and cleaned. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ON THIS, UNPLUG THE MACHINE!!! If its a front loader the kickplate has to come off or the whole front, and same procedure as above. Hope this helps.

Wont spin or rinse out ends wash clicks and nothing else


without knowing brand or model, can only recommend check pump and drain outlet. Front loaders seem very finnicky about their outlets. You should be able to access it easily for regular maintenance. If your machine has stopped before it drained you will need to be aware of that water 'waiting' to exit! Check for string, twigs, anything blocking the outet. A jammed toothpick nearly cost me a new timing switch ($260) !
good luck

My Kenmore series 90 washer wont drain completely. It washes fine and spins but when I take the clothes out they are soaked. I heard a high pitched squeaking noise breifly and then it stopped. Then it...


Hi

Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. You can take a flashlight, remove the hose from the pump and look into the suction port of the pump. Check for anything clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers for broken or missing blades and ensure that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective and will need replaced. Hopefully it is just a clogged pump or drain line.There is the possibility that the pump is gone or going on it, or maybe a lint clog of some kind, or even a small sock or something. You can check the lines and re-install. Check around all the seals if a front loader to make sure the drain holes are not blocked.
Or try to unplug unit and let it sit for 1 minute and plug it back in. See if this will reset the unit.
Or sometimes it is from an uneven load. Towels with t shirts, not a good idea....1 t shirt....maybe......4 or more with a load of towels not so good. Without an even load, the balance is thrown off and the load will not spin properly, therefore, leaving water behind in the clothes.
