LG Washer WD14030D6 noisy during wash and rinse - fixed!

I had a problem with my LG WD14030D6 which is very noisy when washing and rinsing. The machine got louder over a year or so and so faced with the possibility of a failure I decided to look at the issue. While it sounds like a bearing is failing or similar I noticed that it only happened when the machine was washing and rinsing and was present when the pump was active spraying water across the clothes (wash and rinse cycles), I pulled the machines front panel off and removed the pump assembly at the bottom right of the washer (there are several Youtube videos which show how to do this and remove the flexible pipes and wiring - although not this model but the pump looks the same or close enough).

The pump housing on my machine has 2 pump motors (one on each side of the pump housing). I took a picture of the assembly with wiring attached so I understood the motor orientation before breaking it down.Everyone seems to replace these but I decided to pull them apart and discovered that years of washing had allowed ingress of now dirty and concentrated wash water and detergent to leach in beneath the impeller seal and O-ring seal. I pulled the impeller and rotor assembly out and washed out (with the hose) a lot disgusting gray water almost (it looked like a lithium based grease but it isnt - it should be all clean).

After letting it all dry in the sun till the motor was dry I lubricated the impeller/motor rotor shaft bearing with liberal amounts of CRC or RP7 until it felt reasonably free. I did this to both motors/impeller assemblies. I cleaned out the filter and pump housing although it was all pretty clean anyway. The motors are offset on each side of the pump but it probably doesnt matter too much unless it possibly restricts the mounting, etc.

After reassembly its now as good as new and all but silent just like it was when we first got it back in 2012. So if the spray is working during wash and rinse modes and it pumps out give this a try as the motors are probably fine and save the expense of 2 pump replacement motors.

Sorry I didnt take pics but I really assumed that the pump motors were failing and that I would be replacing them as per all the current Youtube videos indicate. So I decided I had nothing to lose trying this way - and it worked!

LG WD14030D6 Machine is making a scratching sort of noise when in use. I cleaned the filter and found broken parts of small zippy tie in it. I was wondering if maybe some of it could be caught behind the...

I'm not sure what you mean by a "zippy tie", but if your machine works and the sound is just annoying, I suggest you leave it alone. Chances are it will "fix itself" by wearing down the part more and more until it's too small to make a rubbing noise.

Also, double check all pockets from now on for unwanted bits in your clothes!

Good Luck.

So frustrated - LG dishwasher washes 5 minutes then shows OE code - have cleaned drains, sump pump, out let pipes. Still doing it. ONly 9 months old..... My old dishwasher worked for 10 years.......

Hi there Diane OE on your display relates to the water draining system (water is not pumped away). the diashwasher is not seeing the water drain away. Dishwashers start by draining before they take on fresh water. Start your dishwasher and listen for a pumping noise from the waste pump if you dont hear any noise it may be the pump is blocked or faulty. please advise if this helps kind regards gary.

I have the error code OE showing up, and the water is not draining from the washer. What should I do?

OE - drain error - 5 minute time out drain time error. check your pump/filter for blockages. Clean out the trap from the bottom, something is jamming the drain motor.

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

LG washer with OE error


If you are getting this code it is because your washing machine has tried for at least ten minutes to drain the water out of the machine. The most likely cause of this problem is that you have a plugged pump filter or you have something stuck in the pump filter.Make sure that you unplug your washing machine.To clean out the pump filter you must empty the washing machine water. The best way to do this is to manually drain the water into a low bucket or basin. Then lay a towel down to catch to remaining small amount of water. Remove the pump filter, clean out any debris, and wash out the filter. Then plug your washer back in and restart the washing machine.Check that your machine is properly leveled. A washer that is too far out of level may not drain properly. Make sure that you are level front to back as well as side to side.This solution will solve your problem

Thank You !!

Dishwasher will no longer drain completely

The pump is bad and needs to be replaced. The pump is not pumping out all the water from the system


Water pump failure?

The water pump drain motor has something stuck in it or it has gone bad like most LG parts.
Remove the drain pump and look for any foreign object to be removed.
Check the drain pump for a failed pump motor.
LG is pretty.


The main water pump on this model does not last long. The water seal between pump and motor starts to leak that result in the adjacent motor bearing corroding and eventually failing, resulting in excessive noise. Later the water leak becomes so bad that it triggers the "E I" water leakage display and prevents it from completing the program. The pump and motor is sold as one unit and the whole unit must be replaced. I have tried to replace the faulty bearing and repacked the rubber seal with silicon grease but with no success. If anyone have repaired the water seal successfully please let us know.
