Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

Water Pressure Woes

Seems like the water pressure is incorrect. Already checked both supply lines, the hoses and the filters at the back of the washer. No problem with any of them. Filters are clear; plenty of pressure when running the hoses directly into the laundry tubs. There is no pre-mature daining as described in on eof the other postings. However, when filling, it seems like the water just trickles in. No obstructions or problems visible in the detergent dispenser either. When going through the rinse cycle, more of the same. The video in the store where I purchased the washer showed the water spraying out - both during the fill and rinse portions of the cycle. It also appeared that the water filled much higher than it does in my machine. I realize it's supposed to save water, but exactly where should the water level be during a normal cycle ? What about the rinse cycle ? Should the water spray out from the the front top (like in the demo video included on the CD with the washer) or is that just marketing ? Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There is a water level marked behind your machine; your outlet tube should not go below this level; the wall outlet drain should be high enough. Then your water will remain at the correct level in your machine. See that the valve in your wall to the inlet is completely open before you turn on the machine for your wash.

Your pump pumps waste water OVER the level marked on the rear of your machine. The water level marked is quite important for a successful wash.

It's not a solution, but the water on our washer here 'trickles down', too...I guess that is normal...But if you have the same brand, you should know those three gray...things...with the black balls in them? They have holes, forming a wavelike pattern...I don't know if that's supposed to Spray, or Drain....Mehh....I stink at solutions...The water level...hmm...just like..a little bit touching the end? :)

HOW DO I STARTS MY WASHING MACHINE AGAIN CAUSE IT ALWAYS `IE` ERROR EVEN I ALREADY CLEAN THE FILTER,CHECK HOSE,THIS ERROR HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE USE IT MANUAL WHEN NO WATER IN SERVICE,I MEAN HE MANUALLY

The IE or E1 error or fault code indicates that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve
If you are trying to use the machine manually, there needs to be enough water in the machine to tell the level sensor when to switch off the water inlet solenoid valve. Failing this, the machine will only show IE (Inlet Error) and refuse to work.

Water pump runs constantly but no water pressure or water comes out of hose.

Lots of possibilities. Inlet filter might be clogged. I once had a lizard crawl into a water feed line, totally blocked the feed. Check valves might be stuck closed. Discharge hose might be plugged. Pump might be trashed ( if it is a vertical engine it is probably a throw away pump) Nozzle might be plugged.
Disconnect the hose at the discharge and turn on the water supply. It should have a stream of water even without the motor running. That will check the inlet filter, feed pipe and check valves.

Why won't water go into my washer?

If both cold and warm water are affected, it may be the inlet control valve located (in most cases) inside the washer and contains not only the valve but also is directly attached to the inlet hoses.

Water dispenser sudden low flow/pressure. Bottom freezer KBFA25ERss. I have replaced valves, removed every segment of line and blown them clear from dispenser tip to supply line. Supply pressure and flow...

Sounds to me you have something wrong with the filter and retaining air there. That air must be purged to get the pressure you need from water supply. Double check that water filter I think your problem is there, Thanks Sea Breeze

My system has cracked two leaf trap lids in less than 1 month. When I turn the pump off it seems there is a lot of back pressure that is cracking the lid. What could be the problem?

- Too much pump for the filter
- Clogged filter / dirty filter restricting flow and building pressure
- Hose(s) too small a diameter
- Restrictions in or blackage of a return line
- Hoses connected to skimmer/inlet and return in reverse or incorrect order
- Problems with the filter valve not routing water correctly
- Bad pressure gauge misleading you on overall system pressure, again, clogged filter being the real issue

If it is none of those look at water chemistry being way off stressing the plastics or pool users climbing on the pump.

Model LAT8504AAE Hot water pressure has been reducing over time, little by little. It is now only cold water. All house supply line valves are open.

screen in hot water fill hose is probably stopped up.turn water off unscrew hose at both ends check for a screen,if not in hose check at water inlet on washer pop out screen clean under kitchen spayer and reinstall make sure you put hose washers back in the hose ends that should fix your problem!!!

No water

Try replaceing the water filter, and / or check the water supply for adequit volume and pressure, by disconnecting the water supply line from the back of the refrigerator and run a couple of gallons of water into a bucket just to make sure the line is clear.
If the water supply volume and pressure is good, reconnect the water supply line, install the new water filter and try dispensing water, this should fix it, or check that the water supply silenoid valve for proper operation when dispenser lever is depressed.
GOOD LUCK !

Very little water pressure & no water to ice maker

The solenoid valves, located in the lower back of the refrigerator, where the water line enter the unit has a filter mesh at the inlet. Mineral formation or debris from the tube lines block the water pass and present the symptoms you describe. Also, when units do not have this filter mesh, the mineral deposit and debris obstruct the water valve mechanism and the water flow. If you have good pressure at the valve entrance, but not at the output, replace the solenoid valves.
