Question about LG WFT1071TP Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Running water Hi I have an LG isensor 13kg washing machine. When the water runs through from the tap into the washing maching, it drains the water immediately out again. I tried by choosing a program (wash, rinse and spin) and i tried to do it seperately as well. It counts down on the timer but never starts to wash the clothes. As the water flows in, it flows right out again. Thanks, J

    In my machine earlier water was filling up after 2-3 minutes but now water fills up only upto certain level (may be 6 inches) and then drains out automatically. I thought may be level problem so i removed it from its stand but still the same. We kept it under our cabinet and as it is top load we had to pull it out to use it. Has this pulling out and then pushing in has created any problem? Kindly advise some solution.

    We drained it before we had freezing temps but after it was warm, you can hear the solenoid click and a little flow but, will not put water through the soap dish or fill. We're having to put the soap in with the clothes and water. I think it does rinse. How hard is it so replace the fill solenoid? How to get to it and how much does one cost?

Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.

If the drain hose is pushed too far down the drain pipe, it will have a tendency to to siphon out. Only use 1 or 2 table spoons of detergent as the washer uses very little amounts of water. Read your instruction manual as it says the drain hose has to be higher than a certain height before it goes to the drain.

This sounds like the water is siphoning from the tub. Raise or loop your drain hose up (at the back of your machine) higher than the highest water level of the machine

Washing machine cold water not filling

Typically this indicates that you have a water inlet valve that is not opening. Replacement of this part would be ideal, and should fix the problem.
