We bought the machine so we can set it to wash and dry in one go... Supposedly you can do it but we don't know how. When u turn on the machine its ready to wash but if you hit dry it switches to drying mode rather than adding it to the wash cycle. The manual is useless. Any ideas?

If your dryer is set to "auto dry" the display will show AD initially and then may show a number which is the estimated time for the clothes to dry in auto dry mode. The display may also show CD (Cool Down) and DN (Done) during the cycle.
Check that the feet are level to the floor as this may cause the vibration. Also set the machine to wool mode this then knows what material you are putting in the machine then should cycle to that material.
When you press the "SPIN SPEED" button and "SOIL LEVEL" button the water
level frequency should be above 246. If the water frequency level fails
to reach 246 in 8 minutes you will get an IE error or inlet error. You
would need to check the water valve, water pressure, etc. How does
the machine know if the water level is complete? Water level switch
right? So obviously the control is timing the amount of time it takes
till the water level switch kicks off. If it takes more than 8 minutes
we have a problem don't we? Therefore if something is partially blocking
the tubing from tub to switch that might throw off the water level
switch. It is located on the main control assembly and has the rubber
tube connected to it. The control board uses this to determine water
frequency level. Just blowing the sediment out of that tubing will cure
the IE error IF everything else mentioned is all good. I meself would do
that first before replacing any parts. LG WASHER MANUAL
What you probably mean is that it kick out the earth leakage in the house. You could either have a neutral wire that has shorted to earth or water has gotten onto your circuitry and is enough to kick out the earth leakage - which it is supposed to do. Try drying out the electrics of the machine with a fan heater or a hair dryer for a while and see if that solves the problem. If not do a check from the neutral wire to earth with an ohm meter and see if you get a reading. If you do, you will have to trace all the wiring looking for the leak. If the drying out solved the problem, you need to look for a water leak.
I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!
Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...
The way to get it to dry :
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"
It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!
Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...
Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)
For "spin only" from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.
Things I don't know:
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons
...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
