    You may have a bad HOT/COLD Water inlet valve.
    If you have checked the the screen/filter and there is no sediment build up,then that is the culprit. You can check on Ebay, but you need to have the model number of your machine. The only problem is that you will need to dismantle the top panel of your washer. Theres are alot of videos posted on youtube that may help you with that.

SOURCE: kenmore top load (model # 110 82370120) drain problem

Good AM. I see here that you have a fairly old belt drive Kenmore washer. The real problem with these is that the parts for them are so very expensive anymore to get. A timer (which you may be needing) will run you around $100.00 to $175.00 depending on where you live. Very expensive repairs on these, but if you want to go for it, here are some hints to help. Sounds like you have one of three problems. First off PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE BEFORE WORKING ON IT. Your timer may have lost or has a stuck contact inside (unrepairable in most cases) which is making it do something is shouldnt be doing in that area of the timer. This would probably be the most expensive of your repair. The next thing is it could be the water level switch could be going bad. This one is highly doubtful since it fills and stops filling, but I have heard (but never have seen) that they can short out sometimes and cause wacky operation. Both these issues can be fixed by remove the console rear panel and front knobs to remove both. The next item could be a defective wig-wag in the bottom of the unit. One of the positioning solinoids maybe going bad and sending bad signals back to the timer.

None of these problems are really hard to fix. And truthfully (even though some of these guys will be mad) you can sometimes find these parts on ebay for a halfway good price. Part numbers for each are:

Timer: 381860
Water Level Switch: 359712
Wig-Wag: 89814

Good luck with this one, and if you know how to use one, try to run resistance with an ohm-meter on your wig-wag to be sure your getting power flow through the soilnoids (you will have 2, be sure to unplug the solinoids before testing to be sure its a true test) before replacing.

SOURCE: it fills up..washes..but wont drain or spin out..

I had the same problem. Checked the pump and it ran fine. Took off the door locking mechanism and put 120 ohms into the wax motor part and it tested fine too. I read about problems with that wax motor so I replaced the complete door switch today for $71.00 and the washer runs perfectly now. If it won't spin or even fully drain I suggest replacing the door switch.

There comes black stuff out of the washer when i spin. Isit the stasoft?


Fill your machine with hot water (if you only have cold water connected, then add hot water with a bucket) until the machine is filled to the top mark. Add a cup of dishwasher powder and stir it to dissolve. You can also let you machine run a short while, but be carefull that the water is not pumped out. Turn the machine off and let it stand overnight. Then turn it on the next morning and let it wash a complete cycle. You don't have to let the rinse part of the cycle complete. Just turn the machine off when the first water has been pumped out.

What this does: The machine builds of a residue between the drum and outer housing which is not removed in the normal wash cycle, especially if you don't wash with hot water. LG recommends that the machine is cleaned in the above way once "fluff" or black residue is starting to show in clothes after washing.

Water will not shut off in washing machine


Check to load size selector switch, sounds like tube came off of it. The tube goes from switch to bottom of tube, tells machine what size load and when to turn off water.

Flashing FE and wont stop filling with water


FE means Fill Error, but you already figured that out. If you unplug the machine and it still fills, and the only way to stop the filling is to turn off the valves supplying the water to the fill hose(s), then you need to replace a fill valve. It is best to figure out which one by turning one off at a time while the machine is in that FE condition. There is a separate hot and cold valve. (they are the part that the hose screws onto on the machine.) To replace valve, cover comes off machine by removing two screws at the back of the top. (not the two which go into the top, the ones just below them) Then, standing in front of the machine, use the palms of your hands to give the top a sharp push to the rear to slide the top back about two inches. Then lift the top off.

Clean LG WF-T652a Top Loader Washing Machine


I have this problem too and I solved it easily !!!!

I hypothesised that something was blocked by dried up lint/silt. So I filled the machine with very hot water and also poured hot water down the lint filter outlets. I left it for 5 minutes and then started a wash cycle - and the water now comes out of the lint filter ducts. ! :-)

LG washer uses so little water, clothes aren't even damp and not clean


You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.
