    by the way, the washer is filling OK as normal, then once done filling, it starts to drain. If there were some siphoning, i would not fill to max and then satrt to drain!! Am I missing something here? thanks

Is there an error code shown on the display?

Which cycle(s) gives you this problem?

Does this happen 100% of the time.

Call LG customer service. The unit is probably still in warranty. If not contact a certified LG repair shop and have them come examine and if possible repair the machine.

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

SOURCE: LG WFT1022TP top loader washing machine

the system which controls water level is an air chamber with a small diameter pipe which goes to a pressure stat. when the correct level is reached, the pressure in the air chamber switches the pressure stat and cuts the water off. the things to look for are: gunge in the air chamber split in the pipe. faulty pressure stat to test, get a similiar length of small diameter pipe and connect it to the pressure stat instead. with the machine filling, blow gently into the pipe and see if the water intake cuts off

Does this machine have a lint filter? I am getting bits of yuk on my washing after the wash is finished

No lint filter. The tumbling wash action generates very little lint, which washes down the drain.

To get rid of the "yuk":

Open the access panel on the lower left corner on front of the washer.
Use small hose to drain the remaining water from machine.
Remove the pump filter next to the hose, clean it out, and replace it.
Run the washer with a commercial washer cleaner such as Affresh, washer magic, or whirlaway hot tub cleaner, no clothes, hottest longest cycle possible. Use the tub clean cycle if your model has it.
Resume washing, using one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle. Use only 1 teaspoon of fabric softener if you use that. These machines use much less water than the old top loader ones, and thus you must use much less detergent.

MY LG WASHER WONT DRAIN, IT SAYS THE ERROR MESSAGE

OE is a drain error - Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge

2 problems smell and alwys out of balence

I leave the front load door open now between washes and that musty odor has gone away. As for the shaking, since I live in a mobil home I reinforced the floor and use the next to highest spin setting. My ultimate solution for all my LG W/D problems is going to be to sell the home and let the LG W/D set go with it.
